2. This is the "Irish Backstop"...

There has to be a trade barrier between non-EU Britain and the EU, but there can't be between non-EU Northern Ireland and EU Ireland (Good Friday Agreement). SO they've patched one together between Northern Ireland and the rest of Great Britain. DUP was against this, but after the last election, the Tories don't need them anymore.
