Arlene Foster Writes To The 27 EU Countries

I have to admit my first response to reading this was, "She has got some nerve", but this is consistent with DUP policy. It is believed many of them want a hard Brexit because they fear an open border would encourage a united Ireland. Whereas many others believe it would exacerbate tensions within the province.
It needs to be constantly remembered that Northern Ireland is a province for both unionists and nationalists. Both have benefitted from the open border over the years, and there are unionists who voted Remain. I hope the DUP revaluate their position
