The Irish border issue has been described as an ‘impossible problem’. Theresa May has been described as a ‘useless politician’. As such, who could be better suited to solve the greatest political question of our time?
The glaring duds of May
When she first heard talk of a border and people possibly wanting to cross it, May fell back on an old favourite of hers. She sent a load of vans up to Ireland with ‘GO HOME!’ written on them. The problem was everyone was already home – they just wanted to exchange goods without checks.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
