Can you clarify how, exactly, the EU forced May and the British government into their impossible triangle of goals?
They want complete separation from the EU and control over their borders.
They want no border in Ireland.
They want no border down the Irish sea.
They cannot have all three, they can only pick two. International law only allows for them choosing two, irrespective of the EU's wishes. This isn't a scenario the EU forced on them, it's one they chose for themselves.
