Although our entry might be a clever bit of reverse psychology a Remainer UK entry called "its bigger than us" just to show Europeans the majority still want to stay in (obviously). Genius
I am looking forward to him singing and when he has finished dropping his trousers to reveal EU flag under pants. Victory assured.

P.S we are still leaving

As must ignorance!

As Essex so rightly says, the WTO rules pertaining to Most Favoured Nation state that countries must treat all other countries they trade with equitably. Meaning if there's no border controls between the UK (N. Ireland) and Ireland, then there can't be controls on the UK and other countries.

Here's the ruling:
Article I: General Most-Favoured-Nation Treatment
1. With respect to customs duties and charges of any kind imposed on or in connection with importation or exportation or imposed on the international transfer of payments for imports or exports, and with respect to the method of levying such duties and charges, and with respect to all rules and formalities in connection with importation and exportation, and with respect to all matters referred to in paragraphs 2 and 4 of Article III,* any advantage, favour, privilege or immunity granted by any contracting party to any product originating in or destined for any other country shall be accorded immediately and unconditionally to the like product originating in or destined for the territories of all other contracting parties.

Is this post just going to be ignored?

Probably. We'll continue to be told that the Irish border issue is all the fault of the EU.

I don't know if people are bullshitting - or more likely, just blind to the obvious.

Its not the first time this has been pointed out, its not the first time its been ignored only for someone to hope its been forgotten about and to then return a short time later to blame the EU again.

It wasnt thought about before the referendum and now the reality is hitting home the blame game is being played by those who refuse to own the consequences of their decision.

I find most brexiteers on here prefer emotions and sentiments rather than facts. The leave campaigns focused on exactly the same things, aimed for the heart not the head.

There is also the issue of sanitary and phytosanitary checks on the Irish border. This would exacerbated if Liam Fox's much dreamt of US trade deal was to be signed. The Americans have already said that UK food standards would need to be lowered as part of any deal to enable their dodgy chickens and even dodgier beef to be imported. Brussels, with higher food standards, don't want that crap entering the EU, which would then mean border checks.
