Mugabe also faces U.S. sanctions over his government's human rights abuses.

* Theresa May will put herself on a collision course with Dublin this week by insisting on a post-Brexit trading border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. A crucial “position paper” is expected to stick to Britain’s current plan to use smart technology and spot checks to police the flow of goods between the two countries after 2019. The stance will anger the Irish Government, which fears the impact on the peace process in the North and has pushed for the Irish Sea to become the post-Brexit border with the UK instead. I assume May wants to turn Northern Ireland back into a British army traqining ground.
* The UK wants an invisible border with Ireland after Brexit – here’s how it might workWhy all the panic about the border? If you drove to the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland tomorrow, you might have some trouble in finding it. The 310-mile crossing is marked only by discreet road signs, while there are no customs checks and certainly no passport inspections. But Britain’s decision to quit the European Union has sparked panic in some circles that the…View On WordPress
* Brexit position papers to be released this week risk fuelling tension between the British and Irish governments. Ireland’s Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, had urged Theresa May to remain in the customs union to avoid border checks. But cabinet ministers Philip Hammond and Liam Fox have clearly indicated the UK’s intention to ignore that plea. The British Government believes a “light touch border”, using some checks and new technology, will solve the problem. In fields which straddle the Irish border, they risk having some animals in the EU and others outside it. Image:Can you spot it? There’s no obvious sign of the Irish border along most of its length Fermanagh farmer John Sheridan says Theresa May’s proposals amount to “a hard border by stealth”. “We have got rid of that for the last 20 years so to bring that back, you’re just putting a sledgehammer in the centre of a community,” he argued. People travel freely between Belcoo in Northern Ireland and Blacklion in the Republic, one of multiple crossing points. Women living on either side have placed cushions on the bridge, literally “softening the border” in protest at any plans for customs posts here. Image:This border point has been made particularly soft by the addition of cushions Visual artist Rita Duffy explained: “It cannot be secured, tightened or, as Donald Trump would suggest, walls built. “When you’re standing in the beautiful landscape, wild and free, and then you think hard border? It simply can’t be allowed to happen.” Border checks are not optional for a country outside the customs union. They are required under EU law. So authorities will have to find a way to monitor the 310-mile long border and its network of up to 200 invisible crossing points. Owen Patterson MP, a former Northern Ireland secretary, believes the Government’s proposals are workable. “In all the time I’ve been going to Northern Ireland… nobody has ever mentioned this as a problem,” he said. “So I honesty think with modern technology, modern invoicing, this is all easily surmountable.” Source link Brexit tension brewing over Irish border plans was originally published on News London

Why must you clear UK immigration when connecting to Ireland in spite of Irish border checks? When flying from the UK to Ireland, you'll clear immigration at the Irish airport. So why must people connecting in the UK clear immigration (and be photographed at security to prove they did this, rather than using the transit corridor) in order to board a flight to Ireland? Is it to prevent non-Europeans from entering Ireland posing as Brits by presenting a UK driving licence, and then fly back to the UK (as you don't clear immigration in the other direction)?

Why does Northern Ireland pronunciation sound similar to American? Recently, I started watching a TV show The Fall, which takes place in Northern Ireland. Their intonations and accents are unique, but their pronunciation sounds a lot like North American English to me. Here are some similarities I have found: The 't' gets softened like in Americans English. For example, 'Peter' sounded like [pi:rɚ], not [pi:tɚ]. The 'r' which is not followed by a vowel is pronounced. For example, 'Peter' sounded like [pi:rɚ], not [pi:rə] The diphthong 'o' sounds like [ou], as in American English, not [əu], as in British English. Did I hear correctly? If so, why are there such similarities? Did the Northern Ireland pronunciation affect North American pronunciation 2~3 hundreds years ago?
Why is having border controls in Ireland so problematic for Irish nationalists? One of the biggest challenges of Brexit is resolving the issue of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. On one hand it is impossible for the UK to leave the Single Market while maintaining an open border with an EU member. On the other hand Ireland seems to be hard bent on avoiding border checks at land crossings, in order to avoid upsetting the peace process between Unionists and Nationalists. But why are Irish nationalists so hard bent on keeping the border open? What difference does it make to them, since Northern Ireland remains a part of the UK with or without a customs union?
