Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation

Has the Tánaiste spoken to Boris Johnson? Obviously, we cannot have a return of the spectre of a hard border in Ireland. The British may be looking for a game of chicken with the European Union. Hopefully, they are only grandstanding to keep certain sections of the British Conservative Party happy. This does not help, however, given the cul-de-sac politics being followed by the DUP following the historic Northern election.
