I live in the UK and never had an outbound check , at airports there usually is UKBF desks in case of it happening . I think its more a ramdom thing .
However i have had a UK Border Force check leaving Belfast port which i thought was odd

Another interesting thing about UK borders:

This week I flew from Cork (Ireland) to Manchester (England). There were no border checks on either airport.

However, last year I flew from London Stansted to Dublin, and after landing in Dublin I had to go through passport control.

BULGARIA (Rudozem-Xanthi) GREECE

The deadline for the completion is the middle of 2018 and the border crossing point will be situated at 1021m. of altitude. The road leading to the Greek border is already built from the Bulgarian side.

The Bulgarian fence is almost completed on the whole length of the border

The Garda always checks inbound passengers from Britain. In theory British citizens don't need a passport to get through but they need to prove that they are British citizens and so a passport is required anyway.

How is it when you fly, for example, from London to Belfast? Are you checked upon arrival in Belfast?

From Belfast you can drive to Republic of Ireland without any land border checks...

That fence is the new "Iron Curtain". But I guess this one is in fact effective.

No, no control whatsoever. Nor is there any for ferry passengers arriving anywhere in Ireland from Britain.

So if you go from England to the Republic of Ireland directly, you get checked, but if you go England -> Northern Ireland -> Republic of Ireland you avoid all checks. Weird...

I think what OulaL was trying to say is that he has never seen a speed limit not "ending" with a 5 or a 0.

There is no cure for the Aphthae epizooticae and the only way to stop the disease from spreading is to put down all of the infected livestock and burying them. One news from 2011

Not true.
Any evidence is acceptable, driving licence, bus passes etc.
