    I don't know why liberals are so against walls since they themselves live in bubbles.

    "Drat, I was THIS close!"

    (Sorry, that's always the first thing I think of when I hear someone talk about a "vote of no confidence".)

    Oh, good. That means I won't have to remember a new PM's name in a couple months.

    The EU has built 1,000 km of border walls since the fall of the Berlin Wall. News coverage is mostly negative, but the US is far from alone in desiring to limit the flow of illegal border crossings with walls.

    Basically the same. They were promised many mutually exclusive versions of Brexit, most of which were not in the politicians power to promise (eg all of the benefits of the single market with none of the responsibilities). There is no one brexit deal which will make them happy.

    But then producing a yes/no vote defending the status quo in a post crash economy was always going to result in a kicking.

    So Ireland will probably become a huge black market.
