That border again

The picture features in this week's German weekly newspaper 'Die Zeit'. It is the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

The paper gives a full page to how Brexit might or will bring back old wounds.

Journalist Jochen Bittner interviews former member of the IRA, Richard O'Rawe, who gives advice to the Europeans, especially the German government:

The headline on the piece runs: Is that the new EU-border?
