Almost 1,000 officers from rest of UK to start training to deal with trouble arising from hard border
Almost 1,000 police officers from England and Scotland are to begin training for deployment in Northern Ireland in case of disorder from a no-deal Brexit, the Guardian has learned.
The plans were put in place after Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) chiefs asked for reinforcements to deal with any trouble that arises from a hard border.
The option of reinforcements is deemed necessary to cover the possibility of civil disorder arising from disquiet about border arrangements that could be put in place after a hard Brexit.
Conservatives do seem to love their hard borders and great walls. The problems that causes for liberal Ireland that will stay in the EU and shares a land border with soon to be non-EU Northern Ireland, are of little concern for the Tories.
The last thing Tories seem to want is a second referendum that would give people a voice on whether the prime minister’s Brexit deal or a ‘hard Brexit’ are worse than staying in the EU. She seems to be pushing the country to the March 29 brink in order to present Parliament with a ‘my deal’ or ‘no deal – hard Brexit’ choice; in other words choose the lesser of two evils rather than giving the people a voice.

National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more nationalism.
