I did read Heimdall's post, there are some articles online about EU wanting to split Northern Ireland from UK, but you said UK government is. It is incorrect because it is the public who voted Brexit, not the government. SNP on the other hand are constantly campaigning for a second referendum to the point they are hemorrhaging voters. To say "only UK government is trying to split UK" is factually incorrect. UK government is not trying to split the UK. Scottish government is the ONLY one doing that. Whatever way you try to wriggle out of it, below is simply false.
Christ almighty - how f**king hard is it for you to understand that the comment was made in context of the EU vs the UK seeing as it is those TWO entities that are in DIRECT negotiations with each other and the matter of the Northern Ireland border.
As for your glib statement that you've read articles - patently you haven't. And what you mean by 'it's the public that voted Brexit, not the UK government' in relation to the UK government's actions of pursuing a hard Brexit that means that such actions are endangering the NI peace process...well only you know. Please clarify because most of what you've said is to the point of being self parody. That the public voted for Brexit has f**k all on what course of action the government decides to take after htat.
I'll spell out to you what you clearly don't know. If Theresa May had decided to pursue a Brexit, one that seeks to stay in the customs union and the single market, then the Irish border does not become an issue. But that they have chosen to pursue one that takes us out of the customs union and single market puts the Irish border in an uncompromising position. You cannot leave the customs union, the single market and keep in tact the pre-existing situation in Northern Ireland. SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE. If you don't want a hard border, don't leave the customs union. The UK government wants to leave the customs union but don't want to have a hard border - acting like a spoilt child and seemingly supported by spoilt children. The fate of the Northern Ireland question is decided entirely by what sort of Brexit the UK government wants to pursue. That you seem to believe that everything is done and dusted on the whim of a referendum result shows just how naive you are. I'll also wait for you to pull up the articles where it clearly states that the EU is trying to split NI from the UK.
Knock some sense in to yourself fella. Failing that, give someone else the pleasure of doing it.
