‘This Is Just The Beginning’


Seven new customs cars allegedly being delivered in Dundalk, Co Louth yesterday

Aoife Moore, in The Irish News, reports:

A lorry with a car carrier trailer holding seven customs cars with hi-visibility livery travelled through Co Louth yesterday morning, and parked at a yard in Coes Road East, Dundalk, just miles from the border.

Damien McGennity, co-ordinator of the group Border Communities Against Brexit, says the community around the border have been left with no answers on how their lives will be affected after the UK leaves the EU.

“This is just the beginning, considering the news over the last day, and now this, the community is seriously concerned,” Mr McGennity said.

    “But once you start talking about checks anywhere near the Border, people will start delving into that and all of a sudden we’ll be the Government that reintroduced a physical border on the island of Ireland”

    Simon Coveney to Shane Ross, 15 January 2019, inadvertently picked up on reporters microphone

    Looks like the time has come Si for THAT talk. FG, ladies and gentlmen, the Government that reintroduced a physical border on the island of Ireland.

      Technically FG are the Irish government that are in power when the UK reintroduced a physical border on the island of Ireland.

      But idiots like you will misunderstand that, hence Simon Coveney’s comment.

        FG – the party that reintroduced customs checks at the Irish border. Has a sell-out ring to it.
        Does it bother Varadkar? Nope – too busy celebrity-chasing.
        Does it bother Coveney? Maybe, but maybe just to the extent as it looks bad for FG.
        Does it bother Cian? Obviously in the Coveney camp.

          The Brits, should they leave without a deal, are creating a land border between the UK and the EU on the island of Ireland. Please explain how this is the fault of FG.

    Ah my dad used to drive one of these back in the 80s a less garish affair altogether, a simple black car with a gold harp on the door

    I just caught the end of Boris’ speech. This is beyond parody. He claimed Britain led the World on everything – female emancipation, for example. There are a few people in New Zealand and South Australia who may disagree. The music they played was Baba O’Riley by the Who, the chorus of which goes “Teenage wasteland”. What are these people smoking?

      It was a very funny speech. Emancipation related to the suffragettes. You have to admit that they do lead the world on a lot of things. Or at least, have led.

        Yes, as I stated NZ and South Australia were ahead of Britain. Many other territories were, too. The brain drain from Brexit is going to stop a lot of progress. Something has gone badly wrong in their education system.

    Just supposin’ there were seven new cars just ready to be assigned to the Gardaí, but some bright spark decided to have them temporarily liveried-up with Revenue decals.
    This has the advantage of suggesting that a plan is being implemented – they can always be returned to Garda livery if not needed?

    Not everyone in N.I. lives along the border. But those who do will be pandered to in the hope that they don’t dig up those decommissioned guns and Semtex.

    The M1 will be full of custom lads from Coes road doing 200 km/h with flashing lights to grab a sandwich down in that dodgy tum supermarket in Castebelligham- they might need a fast return afterwards of course.
