Brexit – The Irish Border

We hear so much about BREXIT etc but never seem to hear some of the most obvious points discussed:-

  • The Irish Border issue. So much has been said and references made to Chequers, Norway, Canada etc but what about Switzerland ? Close to the geographic middle of Europe and bordered by members of the EU, a large financial services industry and with it’s own currency (Swiss Franc). People cross freely in both directions and people go about their lives in a ‘normal manner’.
  • We seem to have managed reasonably well to go between Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland whilst in the EU despite having different currencies either side of the border (as does Switzerland). What does Switzerland have that could not apply to the Irish Border situation that the EU or UK can not accept?
