Hard Brexit it is then on WTO terms.

Just like the moon and the Earth are interdependent on each other. Europe an the UK will be tied together.

From 1922 to 1947 People in Roi where British Subjects. So a border was impossible.

1947 to 1973 UK had a massive appetite for Foreign labor. The last of the British Subjects where only 20 in 1967.

With the declaration of the Republic Irish born people ceased to be subjects if they where born after that date.

As somebody that is from Ireland. British rule is far from black and white.

Its not by accident that the Roi succeeded as a stable State. British legal and Parlamentary tradition was at the heart of this.

Violence was used on all sides.

The problem with Ireland is the too rights and the failure of imagination to accommodate Nationalism and Unionism..

Dont worry the 50% mark is high enough already. :-). If 65% of the North wanted to be part of the Republic the UK would truly be trouble.

What did you mean by "Join with Eire in the UK" ?

That works both way too.

Recently a failed Asylum seeker from the UK traveled to the ROI and killed a Japanese man in Dundalk.

The UK is the major source of illegal immigration into the Republic.

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?

Cant disagree with a word of that.

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.
