Barnier, on his second visit to the Border since Brexit, said this was exactly why he had come to visit both sides of the Border: to find "technical and practical solutions to assure safety controls" that protect the EU's single market and, he suggested, the UK's internal market too. Britain and the bloc agree there must be no customs posts or other infrastructure along the now all-but-invisible 310-mile (500-kilometer) border.
"Backstop is needed in order to respect the integrity of the EU single market and the EU customs union", he said, adding that goods entering Northern Ireland must comply with the rules of the single market and the customs union code.
"There is no question of Ireland or the European Union being interested in a land grab in Northern Ireland, that's not our position at all", he said.
"I don't think he does understand the wider unionist culture of Northern Ireland".

The Tánaiste pointed to the impossible scenario where the United Kingdom believes it can stay outside the customs union and single market and expect the EU and Ireland to evade long-established rules of the single market - most of which Britain was instrumental in creating - in order to satisfy misguided Brexiteers' fantasies. "Therefore, his proposal of us being in an all-Ireland regulatory scenario with a border down the Irish Sea simply does not work".
