Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Will that EU positioning hold after BoJo exercises a no-deal Brexit? In theory, an impenetrable wall across Ireland should appear overnight. But who is the interested party that is going to pay for the infrastructure and the operating of such a border edifice?

Maybe a realistic scenario is Hard Brexit, with no wall, and lots of "smuggling" across a permeable border, but economic distress because of overall Brexit disruption not specifically tied to Ireland, then a unification vote in NI, and a subsequent Irish Sea border.  ???
