The old one in the VT thinks she has it sussed, "The Irish are just causing trouble because they lost and it is very petty from them"
What's annoying is the absence of a follow-up...lost what exactly ?

It's the fault of the EU that when the Brits voted for Brexit, they didn't actually really know what they were voting for?:lol:
The EU are terrified that the UK will be fine outside the UK.

Id guess the 30% of people under 30 in Southern Europe has never held a full time job might just wonder why the UK is fine without the EU bullies. Could be trouble ahead. :shock:

It's the EU who want a border.

They are punishing us for Brexit because they are bullies. Just like they were with the banks.

Anything to save their "project". Little Ireland doesnt count.
So what is your solution then?

The UK isn't even outside the EU yet and its very much not fine. Lowest growth in Europe right now. Greece is doing better.

Greece doing betting?

It's like a worker earning €20k being paid a 10% wage increase saying they are doing better than somebody on €100k who got an increase of 2%.

The Eurozone still has the same old problems of boom-bust.

The EU becomes less and less important.

It's not as if all the 30 years old in Southern Europe who have never held a full time job are going to have strong purchasing power.

That sad demographic then, would have much in common with your great leader Boyd Barrett. Should they all go into politics?

Irish History To Be Written On Side Of A Bus For British People – Waterford Whispers News

In recent weeks, a number of pro-Brexit politicians, journalists, members of the public and incomprehensible cat ladies from Britain have publicly and proudly declared their complete lack of knowledge of its nearest neighbours, Ireland, forcing those living in the country not actually known as ‘Southern Ireland’ to hire a bus....Unfortunately, given the detailed nature of a country’s history, as many as 7,000 buses will be used as part of the education effort, but given time we hope Britain can learn its own role in Irish history, and fingers crossed it could even become aware of Northern Ireland, its border and how that whole thing came to pass,” the Irish person added.
“You know the way London is in Scotland, and how we saved Hull from the Vampire invasion of 1764, and when Ireland’s very own Adele won loads of Grammys… see? It’s ************************************g annoying when people talk about something they’ve no ************************************g clue about,” concluded the Irish person.

If thats the case, why is the UK so obsessed with concluding it's bespoke and imaginative trade agreement with the EU?

Why are the Irish so cocky about Brexit?

A bad Brexit is bad for Ireland, a Good Brexit is good for Ireland.

If you want doom and gloom for the UK following Brexit you are also wanting doom and gloom upon Ireland, if the UK thrives we will thrive as well.

It is in the national interest to prevent NI leaving a common regulatory regime with the Republic. Everything possible should be done to try and avert that.

We're not choosing to piss off all our neighbours. Brexit is an unfriendly act between nations that share common interests and it's a hostile with those the UK shares a border with.
