Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure the brexiters are consciously aware of it, but the idea of a "time-limited backstop" would effectively put Ireland in an invidious position in the event of the time limit running out.

Ireland is uniquely vulnerable to Brexit with respect to trade with the UK. If any Brexiters have Indeed thought through the time-limit thing, it will be in terms of being able to impose very unfavourable terms of trade on Ireland (with or without an invisible border).
