Brexit Backstop: 16 strange and bizarre alternatives Brexiters think could replace the backstop

It's an understatement to say the backstop has been a stumbling block for the United Kingdom as it attempts to leave the European Union.

The U.K. is set to leave the E.U. at 11:00pm on October 31, 2019.

Here are some of the most hilarious and bizarre alternatives some believe could replace the Brexit backstop.

A Brexiter suggested this as a possible alternative arranged to the withdrawal agreement live on L.B.C. radio station in April 2018.
'Chuck Norris didn't get out of the backstop, the backstop got out of Chuck Norris.'
Marine biologists sometimes use technology to track the movements of fish around the world. One Brexiter said in June 2019 that this technology could be used to track people and lorries coming into Northern Ireland.
One Brexiter suggested the best way to solve the border issue was for all Catholics born in Northern Ireland to move to the Republic of Ireland. Crazy or what?
Some have joked that the British and Irish governments should summon the Unsullied and the Dothraki horse masters to patrol the border area.
Admittedly, this was submitted with tongue firmly in cheek but's a sign of just how absurd the border issue has become.
Yes, this is actually a genuine suggestion. Brexiters say the best way to stop smuggling along the border in event of No Deal is to build a 300 mile long wall along the border.
This has been suggested countless times but what many Brexiters fail to acknowledge is that more than 80 per cent of the population in the Republic of Ireland support remaining in E.U.
Not be conflated with Irish unity. Some Brexiters genuinely believe Northern Ireland should become a sovereign nation as it would allow them to bin the backstop.
One political anorak Tweeted Liam Neeson could roam the border uttering: "If you pay your customs duty I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you."
This was suggested by members of the E.R.G. as possible replacement to the backstop - there's just one problem they did not take into consideration - what happens in the event of a thick fog?
Again, this was genuinely put forward to replace the backstop but experts have dismissed it as impractical.
Despite not putting forward any credible alternatives to the backstop, British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, believes the issue can be solved with some "bulldog spirit".
One person joked the British government could sell Northern Ireland to President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, because he is interested in getting his hands on 'green-land'.
Because it fixes everything else said one political enthusiast.
