Yes Wallflower, that's all pretty true, which is why i said ordinary protestants are now
seeing a 32 as the best option ultimately.They have lived in peace and mix with Catholics now without a worry mostly and a natural conclusion is 32 having saw now Brexit and this current situation, they see whats happening.

And because of that fear and the signals at the moment from Westminster/Eu etc the loyalist hard core are looking to put the wedge in now and cause trouble, they are virtually issuing warnings in live broadcast interviews..i'd say we are on the verge of something quite nasty, possibly only,but these things escalate rapidly.

The DUP, in Northern Ireland, where the majority voted to remain of course, propped up the a Tories in government for years, then got stabbed by Johnson in the front and back, sold down the river.
They were promised they would not be treated differently from the rest of the U.K. but Johnson’s promises turned out to be more bare faced lies.
Unsurprisingly the people of Northern Ireland are moving ever closer to a vote to reunite with Ireland.
The Tory toffs are soon to be renamed the Conservative and anti Unionist Party!

As the DUP’s 10 votes in the House of Commons became essential for the prospect of any Brexit deal gaining Westminster backing, the Conservatives have been keen to keep their new partners on side. The DUP’s chief demand has been that there can be no border down the Irish Sea, with their party leader Arlene Foster even going so far as to describe this as a “blood red line” for the unionist party.

That was from the Tory Telegraph, celebrating the public humiliation of the DUP.

Why was a Arlene so easily conned by Johnson?

Northern Ireland exists purely because of the threat of loyalist violence. And, sad as it is to say, since my grandmother was from that stock, when in control in NI their behaviour was reprehensible, and in some respects they reaped what they sowed. Some of them need to understand its never going back.

NI Protocol stays - been through this before.... only show in town. Last time it was threatened Ireland's Uncle Joe had a "little chat" with Boris and the Internal Market Bill was binned in under 24 hours. I'm sure he's watching.

The bigger issue is the image of the UK. We have a reputation of being 'untrustworthy' and notorious treaty breakers - we are just blatantly confirming this in front of the world.  Our other stereo-type is of being whingers (whinging poms)  - once again confirming this, moaning that we are been "punished" for Brexit when we no longer have the rights as EU members. Its pathetic.

EU have not actually signed the deal yet.......  interesting.

I suppose it’s no shock to anyone in the U.K. that he once again has been caught as a proven bare faced liar. And no shock to anyone familiar with ifc that he would immediately deny the fact that Johnson has lied yet again whilst excusing the bare faced lie at the very same moment!

Its true -  UK is viewed as bordering on a rogue state - run by ideologues and fantasists.

Not sure what this latest attempt to undermine the NI protocol is about - obviously deliberately provocative.  The question is why?

Everything this regime does is political so is 

(1) a distraction of some kind?  - (a) Maybe because they are nowhere near ready for the border checks and too embarrassed to admit, so try and make a virtue of it
                                   (b) Keep the ERG head-bangers at bay for another while, as the internal UK border thing is definitely irritating them

or


(2) Leverage to get Financial Services Equivalence?   (a)  Wont work
