    We've got a time limit on the Irish open border as it stands. It runs out in 109 days as it stands.
    Exiting the EU is perfectly legal and was ratified by the Irish after the GFA was created.

    We have the outline of an interim agreement already. The backstop as you say is the issue. Realistically getting alternative arrangements up and running in 2 years is going to be problematic, but...

    If it is negotiated we won't have walked away from our obligations.

    I think Boris's plan is to propose basically that: A 10 year GATT 24 transition where we are essentially supplicants following...

    Absolutely it can, I never said otherwise. It certainly can if it votes accordingly following its correct procedures. To do that would almost need an executive that would support that decision...

    100% agreed.
