Yes, I can see that the political situation in Austria may affect the nature of the land border with Ireland.

I suspect the EU's solution would be for NI to become part of RoI and then everything is simple, Same for Gibraltar and Spain.

Indeed, and why on earth should the people living there have any say in the matter?

I'm glad you can see that it may, given that the EU has chosen to introduce the matter of the Eire-NI border into the Brexit negotiations and that the outcome of the anticipated Austrian election this autumn may well have some influence on those negotiations.

For the record, my hope is that Norbert Hofer, the leader of the anti-EU Freedom Party, will finally become the next Austrian Chancellor.

Because half a dozen creatures in the EU hierarchy clearly know much better than the 1.8 million people who actually live in Northern Ireland and the 32,000 inhabitants of Gibraltar what is good for them. Much better. ;)

Herr Hofer isn't even leader of the FPÖ, Heinz-Christian Strache is. Herr Hofer was the FPÖ's candidate for the largely-ceremonial position of President.

Thank you for that correction, Stoaty. Much appreciated. You clearly have more time than I do at the moment to devote to the minutaæ of the subject!

I understand the blue cornflower is a firm favourite of Herr Hoffer. Maybe he just likes the colour…

I see french farmers are worried about who will buy their goods when the UK leaves the EU and is pushing for a hard border, to prevent cheap goods from outside the EU finding there way in to the EU via NI.

I'd have thought they'd be more worried about where their subsidies were coming from.
