‘Never going to be easy’?I think that part of the ‘compelling’ reason is currently being played out in NI. Plenty of people- including William Hague and John Major- warned against the impact that Brexit would have on the Good Friday agreement.
And you say that it was ‘never going to be easy’. Well, that’s not what the likes of Gove, Fox, Davis et al were saying during and post the Brexit campaign - or are you suffering from a hint of rose-tinted amnesia?
I give you the then Trade Secretary Liam Fox telling us how ‘easy’ striking major trade deals would be if we left the EU.
This has aged as well as a rough bottle on vin-de-plonk!
