The latest media splash on Brexit is a result of the European Research Group’s (ERG) most recent publication on the Northern Ireland border[1].  In essence, the ERG is a research group run and supported by a group of influential Conservative MPs seeking what has colloquially come to be known as a “hard Brexit”.  The well-known Conservative MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg is the current chair of the group.  As a group devoted to securing a hard Brexit, it is unsurprising that the ERG believes that the issue of the Northern Ireland border has been used to prevent their preferred Brexit vision.
