Brexiteer complains about about what it means to be a British citizen travelling in the EU now & in the future... (though nothing's actually changed - he's in the non-Schengen queue AIUI, open to correction)

"Absolutely disgusting service at Schiphol airport. 55 minutes we have been stood in the immigration queue. This isn’t the Brexit I voted for."

Jeffrey Donaldson wants special consideration for NI. Yet they want total linearity with the UK. Funny.

Brandon Lewis: There will be no border down the Irish sea

On a visit ******derry The Northern Ireland Secretary said that "we want to make sure there is unfettered access between GB and Northern Ireland".

He added: "We want to make sure that the United Kingdom is one whole union, and one that is good for business across the United Kingdom.

"We've always said there will not be a border down the Irish Sea, there will be unfettered access for business."
