divisions between the british and are still an over how the northern ireland border works after brexit have deepened today. international trade secretary liam fox says final decisions could only be made once the uk knows what its future eu trade deal would be. ireland has however said it could be to moving on to the talks in the next eu summit injust on to the talks in the next eu summit in just over two weeks. but among the border, hotspurs once were customs post. it will have to stop to show their papers, but that was a long time ago. attention, water crossing. the satellite navigation system may be able to tell you when
11:02 pm
you have crossed from northern ireland into the republic but there is little to show it. the irish government wants a guarantee that this land will remain open and the border in visible. and this is all as it gets its assurances, it will block the start of the next round of brexit talks. but the british government says you cannot talk away at the border without discussing trade. we cannot get a final answer to the irish question and till we getan to the irish question and till we get an idea of the end state. and until we get into discussions with the european union or the end state, it will be difficult. the quicker we can do that the better. we are in a position where the eu doesn't want to do it and we are getting close to 2018 but we will be talking about next you leaving the european union. this is a problem, the negotiations are still in their first phase. and while the uk desperately wants to move on to talk about its future trading relationship with the eu, brussels says it will only be possible once sufficient progress is
11:03 pm
made on three issues, and once the uk pays the eu as a sleaze, citizens rights, and what will happen to the currently completely open road that connects northern ireland and the republic. i am more troubled this morning because i read a quote from liam fox, the trade secretary, and he said the border issue, the irish issue, it will not be solved until the final stage, until we reach a decision on trade. i hope the uk isn't holding the irish situation to ransom in these negotiations. it is far too serious and critical. the british government has already said it wants to leave the single market and the customs union. which means after brexit, the uk's economy would be governed by different rules and could negotiate different trade deals to the eu. to ensure there is no hard border, the irish government suggested that northern ireland could remain in both. unionist is fear that if northern ireland were
11:04 pm
to stay inside the customs union and the rest of the uk was to leave, new checks would be needed to ships arriving at ports here effectively creating a border in the irish sea. that would be a border between two parts of the united kingdom and it would be totally unacceptable to the democratic unionist party whose support the conservative government relies on at westminster. talk to anybody in business in northern ireland, our biggest market is great britain and it would be absolute madness and a complete dereliction of my duty as a public representative if i didn't try to stop the border in the irish sea. what will happen on land in a place where political lands —— divides are more obvious than the border? i've been speaking to trade lawyer anthony will each, a partner at a law firm. he told me how likely it was that some kind of border would be introduced if the uk leads the market. i think it would be hard to
11:05 pm
avoid a border of some sort, the government has suggested that there could be solutions such as streamlining procedures, using technology to facilitate movement. but if there is going to be a border, if it is going to be, if we are leaving the customs union and of course republic of ireland as part of the eu will remain within it, there needs to be some way of controlling the flow of goods. so how would a border on literally the boundary between northern ireland and ireland affects trade? it doesn't necessarily have to be on the border. there is talk of controls being inside northern ireland. because obviously the political ramifications of having a physical border security post on the board itself could be significant.
11:06 pm
inevitably if you are going to have some sort of check, there is the possibility of some friction anyway being introduced in trade between the republic of ireland and northern ireland and that could be difficult because there is a lot of trade which passes in both directions every day. how different then would it be if the border were outside northern ireland and you used the whole of the island of ireland, north and south, as a sort of separate entity for trade purposes? then you would be talking about trying to introduce some sort of border between northern ireland and great britain. i think, the government has ruled that out already, and of course politically it would be very difficult for the dup to accept. what examples are there for lawyers to draw upon to
11:07 pm
possibly use this as a tinplate to get round this? there isn't a direct precedent. in cyprus between northern cyprus and the republic of cyprus, there are special arrangements based on eu law but there are border checks between the two. and there are security post. so, in similar in between bosnia and croatia which is another example which the uk government has cited. are border post between the two. from a professional point of view this must be very interesting. technical and legal point of view it is but commercially it is hugely important and politically is hugely important. police in leeds are investigating the deaths of five people, including three children,
