Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A customs border in the Irish Sea is a fine solution, if the UK decides to exit the customs union; the only political obstacle is the handful of DUP votes which gives May her increasingly theoretical Commons majority. It would be immensely beneficial to Northern Ireland, which would be part of both the EU trade zone and whatever sort of trade zone the UK would cobble together; and would probably pick up loads of jobs from companies relocating from Great Britain.

All of this would help to mop up the huge difference of standards of living between the North and South, easing the path to future full union...
