74. The Unanswerable Irish Border Question

00:0000:00

Ever considered that the reason nobody has come up with an answer to how the EU border with Northern Ireland will work, is because there isn’t one. And that’s really bad news for the Republic of Ireland. In this podcast Phil Dobbie suggests that's the case.  The choices of a frictionless border or North Ireland remaining within the EU are both unworkable.  So what will happen if there’s a hard border? Phil discusses the issue with Prof Steve Keen, an ardent Brexiteer, who believes Britain’s exit will help towards the collapse of the EU and, in particular, the Euro. In the meantime, though, Ireland can expect to feel a lot of pain. Listen to find out why.
