British MP's latest comments on Irish border prove that time is a flat circle

So we're back to square one then?

Back in April, the UK government was granted an extension on the Article 50 deadline, which would have originally seen them crash out of the European Union without a deal.

After their MPs gave themselves a brief holiday, Theresa May announced last week that she would be resigning from her post as Prime Minister on 7 June. So far, at least eight of her Tory comrades have announced their intention to run for the leadership, including Boris Johnson.

In short, everything is still a complete mess and they are no closer to a solution, or a deal. Leadership candidate Esther McVey spoke to Sky News on Sunday morning and proved her own cluelessness by rehashing the idea of an "invisible border," achieved using technology - an idea that has long been characterised as impossible.

McVey is championing a no deal Brexit, and asked about the consequences of no deal to the Irish border, she said: "We can do an invisible border... If there is no deal, we know that the EU ain't going to put up a border, we know that Ireland isn't going to put up a border."

Reminded that the EU have said there will be checks, McVey again said: "There will be an invisible border. The technology already exists and that's what we need to make sure that we do. Admin, custom checks online."

The new deadline for Brexit is 31 October.
