Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Given that the UK negotiating position will be considerably weakened after Brexit, it will be possible both to allow a no deal Brexit happen AND subsequently negotiate a deal preventing a hard border in Ireland. There is also a non trivial political difference between a hard border in Ireland being forced on Ireland by a No deal UK Brexit, and one imposed by a dirty deal between the UK and the Commission. Ireland would simply refuse to implement the latter. Is the EU prepared to go to war with Ireland?
