The peace is tenuous at best.
That's not strictly true.
The vast majority of people in Northern Ireland are supportive of the peace process.
It's a relatively very small minority on both sides who seem determined to bring about a return to The Troubles.
As is rather self-evident with the recent car bomb incident nevermind the riots and murder of the journalist Lyra McKee.
Things aren't perfect, but the quality of life for your normal, everyday person in Northern Ireland has improved immeasurably since the GFA.
Yes, there are still issues and tno doubt there will be more setbacks, but the benefits of peace are worth persevering with.
As for the border; as far as I can tell its the EU outright refusal to treat the border any different to any other border that is the stumbling
Unlike so many who have compromised for the sake of peace it seems the EU refuses to put peace before principle.
