WATCH: Theresa May says a border down the Irish Sea is “something I would never agree to“

A border down the Irish sea is "something no British Prime Minister would ever agree to", May said...

By Media Mole

What has Theresa May been thinking, as she sits on the green benches of the House of Commons, stone-faced, staring at the back of her blond buffoon of a successor’s head? “Comb your hair, for God’s sake”? “I wish they had just left you hanging on that zipwire forever”? We’ll never know, sadly. But at least, on the details on his new Brexit deal, your mole has uncovered the ghost of Theresa’s past (a video) to give us a clue…  

When May came back hard-done-by by Brussels last September, she handily made a statement sharing her exact thoughts on the prospect of any sort of customs border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. It suggests she might not be a fan…

It is something I will never agree to. Indeed, in my judgement it is something no British Prime Minister would ever agree to.

Does “never” include tomorrow? Theresa, I know the most daring thing you’ve ever done was running through that wheat field, but why not throw caution to the wind and show that man what you really think of his deal? Take a walk on the wild side. We know you want to.
