the uk will be paying the pension liabilities of their EU staff until after 2050. thus is not unprecedentedYeah, the UK are buying that. That is like the UK demanding EU subsidies continue until 2050 or any length of time, even though we have left the Union, because some people feel they caused a lot of the problems.
If NI & the 26 counties vote for reunification then I & most people here will genuinely wish them every success.
But the UK taxpayers continual subsidization of what will be a foreign state is a totally different matter.
No government would hand the opposition the next election by signing away between five and ten billion a year for years to come, of tax payers money to a foreign state that had left the UK.
