A Border Fantasy

An imagined, irreverent look at one potential Brexit outcome in Ireland. Global tech giant NaNo hints that it has found a futuristic solution, but questions remain.

An imagined, irreverent look at one potential Brexit outcome in Ireland. When Tania, business guru and charismatic boss of global tech giant NaNo, flies in to the company’s Dublin HQ on the eve on Theresa May’s crucial vote on Brexit, the under-achieving Fintan Cooke is delegated to show her the invisible border at the heart of the controversial Backstop issue.

Tania’s presence immediately sparks excited speculation that, in the event of a defeat for the PM, NaNo will to provide the much heralded futuristic surveillance technology to ensure a soft border remains on the island of Ireland.

But as always with Tania, the business objective is much grander than a solution to the Irish border problem. All she’s got to do is convince Fintan to forget local politics and get ready for the company to make a killing.
