I'm sure dePfeffel will sort Ireland out, as long as those he talks to are acting in good faith

I doubt they want that when they're onto a winner with being elected and not having to do any work.

Oh good.
We're going to have a trade war just as there are world shortages of grain and edible oils and energy prices are through the roof.
Are we sure de Pfeffel isn't the Antichrist?
I know it was supposed to be Blair a few years ago, but maybe he was just the demonic John the Baptist figure?

What trade war? Is this some sort of Duchy of Grand Fenwick scheme?

Er - the whole NI Protocol shtick above?

Brexit - N. Ireland on same island as the Republic of Ireland but politically part of UK.

Brexit agreement - border between EU and UK now in Irish sea, not on island of Ireland where it should be, to protect EU/UK border. Goods from GB to NI now treated as going between UK and EU, goods going from NI to Ireland counted as all within EU, no border checks, but NI NOT in EU.

Sinn Fein (IRA in civvies) love this as it means NI almost part of Ireland and not UK. DUP (Orange Lodge Parade minus the bowler) hate it for same reason.

Sinn Fein 'won' the last election but need DUP to join in power sharing. DUP hate SF (see Troubles™) and don't want to play second fiddle. They are refusing to share because of Brexit Protocol Trade Agreement devised and signed by one Mr Alexander Boris dePfeffel Johnson.

Mr Johnson didn't think EU meant it really and has now promised Prods he'll 'sort it out'. Prepared a unilateral revocation of Protocol and will table it in Parliament if EU don't rollover and pretend they didn't mean it.

EU has a different view and has threatened that such an act would breach international law and it will retaliate, up to and including a complete 'No Deal Brexit' which will mean huge tariffs, checks on all goods both directions and lovely problems with financial services and travel.

That Trade War.

Oh and they'll have to enforce the border between NI and the Republic which will mean a breach of The Good Friday Agreement - another International Treaty and not just a scribble on an old fag packet and it will probably mean everybody gets their guns out of hiding, sorry recovers their weapons from 'beyond permanent use' and starts the Troubles™ again.

Brony, thanks for the summary. :)
News of the events as presented here in Australia just gives piecemeal parts, not a sense of the overall context and how far the situation can plausibly escalate. Your government does seem to have made quite a mess of the whole thing!

It's a real skill and not to be taken lightly.
Anyone can fuck up in Ulster but to get every side hating you and each other again after 20 years quiet (plus the EU and the Republic this time) takes more than skill, it takes dedication to stupidity of the highest order!

Meanwhile Walking Dead Pelosi has made it very clear how much the USA values the UK as a partner in the fight against big countries bullying little ones:

'Enforce the sovereignty of the UK in Northern Ireland by altering the Protocol in the Brexit Deal and lose any hope of a trade deal' which in the wrong light could look a bit like us being in a superpower's sphere of influence with no right to make our own decisions.
I mean we can but only if we want Joe Biden's cold dead cock up our arse.

Maybe we've got more in common with Ukraine than I thought.
I for one welcome the arrival of the Marine Expeditionary Force in the Thames.

Alas, Britain has had centuries to practice.
