"We may have chosen to leave but will the EU let us leave??"

They actually have no choice. They cannot force us to be part of the club, to accept their rules, to pay them nor to accept their terms.

"The latest nonsense is that the EU don't want a hard border between Eire and N.I."

The only party between the UK, both parts of Ireland and the EU who wants a hard border is the EU. If they dont want one it is a simple matter to agree no border is needed, or even soft border options which the EU looks to implement elsewhere anyway. The fact that they insist on a border means one thing and one thing only- if they want one they can make it.

"Things will come to a head, and I hope sooner than later.

We will find out what Brexit means:

HARD BREXIT"

Hopefully. This is the best option we seem able to hope for. Remaining in name or not is bad for the UK. A trade deal would be mutually beneficial but the EU makes no secret that they desire to punish us and fear our advantage if we leave. Hard brexit is not only our best option available but also can be unilaterally achieved by us. The EU cannot do squat to stop that.
