DUP Deputy Leader Nigel Dodds MP said,

“The EU published its no deal plans. There are detailed plans for a wide raft of sectors. But it totally avoids spelling out what happens on the border.

What does that tell you?

Even in the event of a so-called ‘no deal’ scenario a hard border won’t happen.

The notion that it’s necessary to have a border and checks in the Irish Sea to avoid a border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic is an utter con trick. 

Even the Dublin authorities in its ‘no deal’ plans admitted no checks on goods at the border. 

The utter hypocrisy of those espousing the current Withdrawal Agreement with its trap of a backstop has been completely exposed.”
