There were news reports yesterday that Northern Ireland is facing food shortages because hauliers and their customers do not appreciate, or believe, that there is now a Customs border in the Irish Sea. Johnson’s outright lies on this issue are fuelling the confusion.
I tweeted this in response:
Northern Ireland is facing food shortages because Boris Johnson keeps insisting there is no border in the Irish Sea and there is. But then the English have never given a damn about the Irish going hungry.
