As reported by the Sun, the UK's David Davis is developing a Brexit solution that would see the Ireland border debate resolved and put an end to the stalemate surrounding Brexit preparations.
Under the radical blueprint, the province would operate a double hatted regime of European and British regulations at the same time, so it can trade freely with both. The Brexit Secretary is also drawing up a 10 mile-wide buffer zone the length of Northern Ireland’s 310 mile border with Ireland. Dubbed a ‘special economic zone’, it will be for local traders such as dairy farmers – who make up 90 per cent of the cross border traffic – and share the same trade rules as south of the border.
The two plans will together eradicate the need for any border check points, which is a major EU demand.
