Irish PM: Brexit could see army on border

The Irish Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, has raised the prospect of army personnel being deployed on the border with Northern Ireland under a no deal Brexit.

Varadkar elaborated that other than the army, this would also involve police, surveillance cameras and physical infrastructure.

Commenting, Best for Britain supporter Jo Stevens MP said: 

"By using no deal to blackmail MPs into supporting her awful deal, the Prime Minister is poking a hornet's nest. There's a real danger that Brexit is stirring up problems.

"It's awful that two and half years of chaos and incompetence has potentially led to a situation where army personnel are being deployed and risked, and physical infrastructure including surveillance cameras are being set up. That's a hard border and a betrayal of the Good Friday Agreement."
