What many Brits seem to be wilfully oblivious to is the long known fact that they're not that competitive and they've very little manufacturing left... and Brexit ain't gonna fix those things...

80% of the UK economy is feckin' services and it's services where they're going to have trouble getting deals...

Not really a newsworthy story in that the UK had to make an EU wide tender and the bids were judged blindly with not even the government minister involved knowing who submitted what bid.

But it is one for my fellow Brexit Schadenfreuders.

the EU is doomed. Best to get all your ducks lined up before the sh1tstorm.

currency, laws, treaties, military, etc etc. The day the EU falls, people like Varadkar will need to hide in a bunker while the rest of us get involved in bread riots.

the UK will be about as perturbed as Ireland was when the Western Roman Empire fell circa 450 AD.


Ireland between 1939-45 was a good metaphor for what will be desirable again for us. Avoid the sh1tstorm. Get out of the EU now.

So start your political party and put that aim on your manifesto. Stop kissing Brexit ass FFS and justify Irexit with rational, cogent economic social and political arguments. Chart out the Article 50 process, withdrawal treaty negotiations, withdrawal from the Euro, partition of Eurozone assets and liabilities, and the free trade nirvana that awaits us at the end of the process.

in response all i can say is ''Irexit may be bad, but staying in the EU will be worse''

So your argument boils down to ‘Comely maidens’ and ‘satisfied with frugal comforts’. Good luck pitching that to the same electorate that continuously elects gombeens like the Healy-Raes.

Now, it's been a few years since I campaigned in an election, but in my (admittedly unprofessional) opinion, that might not be the best slogan to hang your Leave campaign on.

I don't know, if it's under a poster showing comely maidens dancing at the crossroads... It'll symbolise the backwards steps he want's this country to take..

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/5869560/home-office-accused-of-national-humiliation-after-deciding-new-blue-british-passports-will-be-made-in-france/

"HOME Office chiefs were last night accused of “a national humiliation” after deciding FRANCE will make Britain’s new blue passports.

British company De La Rue is to be stripped of its long-standing contract to produce the nation’s new identity documents."

So much for Global Britain.

Presumably if they were made in Kiribati or Nauru there'd be no problem. Global Britain and all that. It's just the EU the jolly little Englander Brexiteers don't like.

That's the thing - those who claim to support Irexit don't seem to get that Brexit is detrimental to Ireland regardless and that the two things are entirely separate.

So the so called Irexiteers are either stupid f***ing morons or they're treacherous disingenuous sh!t stirrers who are either hankering after our return to the feckin' empire... and/or they're Brits attempting to manipulate us in order to facilitate their feckin' Brexit.

Either way the Irexiteers are contemptible gobsh!tes who never come close to proposing viable ways as to how Irexit would work as a standalone thing or how Ireland would thrive on its own in the world... a world that is seeing blocks growing and individual states seeking to avail of blocks (apart from the UK obviously)...

They are by-and-large all sounds and slogans - nothing substantive.

You're clearly neither of those to jackasses then...

By-and-large?

Judging by the complete absence of any viable proposals with any detail I'd say they're entirely sounds and slogans and nothing else.

Certainly the Irexit whingers on here never propose anything and simply indulge in easy vacuous lazy arsed sound bite crap.
