    Annexing the Republic of Ireland would be no problem. They have nothing for an air force and very little for a navy. For an army they have about 9,000 and that includes reserves. The problem is not annexing a country, the problem is controlling the population if they don't want you there. Just look at the Americans in Vietnam.

    Not particularly smart. In 1921 it was taking 50,000 well-equipped troops and thousands of paramilitaries with a vested interest to keep control in Ireland. They do not want to be part of the UK again anyway, so a Putin-style little green men take-over wouldn't work either.  How big is the British Army now??

    To solve Brexit, scrap Article 50 and stay with the miles-better deal we already have.

      Land-Shark. Read my answer. It would be no problem for Britain to invade, but controlling the population is a different story. Even the USA couldn't control Ireland if the Irish didn't want them there.
