Brexit liesThis is a biggie from the Prime Minister. He recently told an assembled audience in Northern Ireland that; "there will be no forms, no checks, no barriers of any kind [between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK]."

It's guaranteed that if we leave the European Union, and there's a border down the Irish sea, then there will be paperwork, checks and barriers.

The government's Brexit secretary, Stephen Barclay, agrees. He testified before a Parliamentary Committee that Northern Irish businesses will need to complete "exit summary declarations".
