We’ll definitely be needing a hard border now, confirms Arlene Foster

DUP leader Arlene Foster has told the government they will absolutely have to have a post-Brexit hard border after that.

Ireland’s decision to repeal the eighth amendment has left the DUP with no choice but to build a wall 88ft high to stop pregnant young women leaving Northern Ireland.

She said: “We’ll need sea defences too. To stop them kayaking round.

“Northern Ireland is British, not Irish, and our girls must be protected from the benighted ignorance of these religious cultists.

“I would like, if we could, for the wall to be visible from space, so God can see it. It’ll cost £88 billion.”
