The Irish border with a backstop solution has been a contentious issue and has some what gone on the back burner since PM Boris Johnson took over.

How do you separate Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in Brexit times?

Brexit negotiations on the border trade have been most difficult part, one which tries to avoid going back to spot checks that bring bad memories of army check points between the 2 halves of Ireland.

With latest revision of WAB (withdrawal agreement bill) published on 19th December 2019 https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/b ... /20001.pdf the answer to this difficult question has been partly answered by now, but by end 2020 we will see more negotiations on this tricky topic and find a solution on this border trade line between Ireland/EU and rest of the UK.
