PARTING SHOT

Over in the UK, the Guardian managed to recreated live border crossings to show the British public the extent of the issue with the return of a hard border in the case of a no-del Brexit.

The currently invisible frontier is not an arcane footnote of the Brexit process but an everyday part of people’s lives and livelihoods.”
