Boris Johnson, Lies and Northern Ireland

What was it?

There will be no borders in Northern Ireland.

“There will not be checks, and I speak as the prime minister of the United Kingdom, and a passionate unionist. There will not be checks on goods going from Northern Ireland to Great Britain because we’re the government of the United Kingdom and we will not institute or implement or enact such checks,” he said.

“The idea that Tayto crisps from Tandragee are going to be vetted by some process is just nonsense.”

“There will be no forms, no checks, no barriers of any kind. You will have unfettered access.”

In answer to a question from an exporter about whether his business would have to complete extra forms, Johnson said: “You will absolutely not.”

He recommended that if any business is asked to fill in such paperwork, they should telephone the prime minister “and I will direct them to throw that form in the bin”.

He either did not understand the nature of deal he was signing or he was lying!!!

There is a border.

There are checks.

There is a mound of Red Tape.
