European parliament is gombeen central.Just that suits aren't as shiny.
Well, with Matt Carthy, Lynn Boylan, Deirdre Clueless and Sean Kelly present, I would term the EP as a space space for any available parasitic wasters who get regular access to TV screens, and who soft inerviews.

It's a pity the Irish/Euro/Facebook passport isn't made by the same guys who made Book of Kells.

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.
It's a dead duck. But someone should tell Theresa May, as she's just about the worst poker player I ever saw. 40 billion? sure.. maybe you want 50 billion, no problem and have our fisheries as well.

UK manufacturing is doomed since Thatcher took power in 79.

Still an 80 (services) / 20 (manufactured goods) export split though innit... and no amount of charts diagrams and whatever else gets away from that... nor from the fact that it's services where the UK really needs to get deals...

the EU.

they flooded us with cheap credit, lost control of our monetary policy, then they bankrupted us.

they flooded us with Third World migrants, then came the Housing crisis.

high taxation, better off on the dole than working in a minimum wage job.

undermined our criminal Courts with soft Human Rights legislation....so we have the Wild-West of Europe.

they stole the fish from our waters

their vulture funds own us.

we will become a minority in our own country - as we already are in many postcodes.

you Gotta love the EU and all the brainwashed eejits on here.

We are about to stop printing currency here in Ireland, when the Euro fails it will be neccessary to have our Punts printed overseas because we won't have any facility for that here unless the Gardiner Place Press can be found.

"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.


But this confirms the Global Britain view - the UK will spend its money where ever in the world it gets the best value for money.

If that means "in France" when it comes to passports then so be it.

You do understand that after Brexit the UK will still trade with other countries don't you? There will be importing and exporting. We will buy from others and sell to others. Others will buy from us and sell to us.

Bound by the EU procurement rules through to the end of 2020 is behind this. Come December 31st 2020 they can dispense with that contract.

Thought you were Canadian? They worked for ten years to get a trade deal with the EU.

BTW, Britain is still operating under EU rules on procurement during the transition period so they had to choose the best offer according to very detailed, fair and comprehensive regulations.

They can decide to print them wherever they want once they leave - in Taiwan, if they like. Off the back of a lorry. :D

So much for EU Britain! The ironies

A British company called De La Rue
The new passports to be produced in France - well, if the UK decides to stay in the EU, does not matter either way.

Who produces and where are Irish passports made?
