I had to laugh at this headline.

Clearly another example of cake and eat it. Wanting a say in EU internal affairs and yet remaining outside.

EU defence policy is the members business.

One problems i have with articles like thisis how British exports to Ireland are never mentioned.

How many business in the UK will be affected by trade restrictions? How many jobs in the UK wll be affected?

Our whole economy is built around being a bridge. Be it from USA or China.

I was refering to Financial services jobs moving.

GDP is for Ireland is misleading. GNP is far better for Ireland. Irish GDP figures are fairy dust. most jobs will go to other EU states. Ireland might get 10% of floating jobs.

Smuggling was a tradition on both sides of border. Anything from eggs to razor blades. An E border has the impression of being a smugglers paradise.

Many in Ireland would like the EU to have more free trade agreements with third parties.

I do believe that being part of a trading block gives Ireland more strength than on its own. Ireland negotiating with with USA would be a week position. Unlike the UK which has a large market.

The common travel area is a good deal for both British and Irish. Lots of Irish Universities have loads of British Academics.

I refering more to trade deals. Eg Ireland V China.
