So you think that's what will happen
The Republic will set up and run check points?
...the moment we diverge from EU standards (which is the object of the fu ckwit Brexiteer exercise), a hard border has to be enforced to ensure that both parties "take back control".
Otherwise, people, livestock and goods smuggling and a wide-open back door to circumvent the different taxes, tariffs, SHE standards, biosecurity measures etc etc.
As one small example, I know a garage owner in NI who used to make a nice sideline from smuggling cattle and sheep back and forth across the border - repeatedly! - to claim the subsidies available on both sides...
And then there will be the violence which will start with targeting the checkpoints...
