Brexit - Fudge or Lemon Sours for Christmas?


Brussels last night made a significant move by proposing a compromise that would see a major reduction in checks on goods moving between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

However, whilst the UK has welcomed the concessions and a reopening of talks, there are sticking points; not least the thorny issue of the European Court of Justice's oversight of the Northern Ireland protocol.

The talks will doubtless go on for weeks. As to whether they will end up serving fudge or lemon sours for Christmas remains to be seen.

We are reaching a point where the people of Northern Ireland may need to consider unifying with the South, in order to resolve this once and for all.
