We stare down the opposite side of the negotiating table waving an armed hand grenade threatening to blow ourselves up and rain exploding steel throughout the room, with Ireland absorbing a disproportionate amount of shrapnel.

Errr... voters are people who actually vote; they are not people who might have, could have, should have voted to keep you pixieland-fanatsy-remain-in-the-EU-land. Try to understand the basics of your own language, Twonk!
That's exactly what i'd do. Tell the EU (wrapped up in diplomatic language) that HMG will impose a soft border on their side and if the EU and to fornicate the Irish economy by putting in a hard border on their side, go right ahead.
