So when the Uk makes a trade deal with clorinated chicken and hormon treated beef from the US. How do you stop that from entering ROI if there isn't border checks? Can you guarantee now that nothing illegal enters the ROI? So all border checks are pointless because illegal stuff sometimes cross them?
