Brexit Phase Two - Trade

I may be wrong , ( I often am ) but aren't Irish people who come to UK given all the same rights and benefits of uk people... if so why would NHS fees drop
I believe they might be but as in the case of my sister in law, went back to the old sod and has to pay for treatment in Ireland. Possibly EU rules say visitors from EU should be given same levels of treatment as natives. :cool:

It's an interesting insight and thank you.

Could I ask you for your opinions on what this might mean for NI politics, since it is such a monumental change in the Republic?
I stuck it up somewhere else. The young guns in the sdlp offered up a free vote as did the OUP. The shinners threw the alter biters under the bus to engage the disenfranchised vote ( great move)

I think, unless they’re suicidal the DUP will make a bit of noise, disappear and let the Free Presbyterians take the weight. Not alienating the females and families nor wiping out the religious heads.

Expect a lot more of the Rev David Mcillveen and Sammy Wilson. Rolled out in times of trauma.

I like to think I'm something of a cunning linguist, so I read that as as a gentle segue into a different and more liberal world for you following the expected palpitations from the expected parties.

The natives pay, life stinks.€30 and €65 depending on where it is.
 
Thanks.

Now it's a rather obvious and embarrassing truth, how do you think things will pan out in NI? What with the very obvious dichotomy with the Republic to your south. Are NI women going to go to clinics in Dundalk or Dublin instead of those in London or Liverpool?
does it have any actual bearing on brexit? Or is it another smoke screen from the remain side. Trying to make a simple thing seem much more complex than it ever could be if it were narrated in Swahili translated from Swedish.

It’s about time. Having typed this during a horrified conversation with the dame. The above procedure was/is in no way widely known or available. But a considerate doctor was a great help.

I expect a bit of noise. You’ll know they’re in trouble when they roll out one Sammy Wilson, he’s the DUPs version of Danny Morrison.

Yes, it does, given that it's screamingly obvious that NI is the focus of the drama. Who would have thunk that in June 2016?

Could you enlighten me on the good dame's opinion?

Somewhat horrified. Not on the repeal of the statute, the irish (roi) people on here will know why it was brought in. I was in the south during the amendment vote 83 (ish) and that was really nasty, a bit like the church bailing in on the side of brexit.

A quick straw poll and so far all the women ive been talking to in the last day or so, very happy about the result and the scale of it.
For much more reasons than the obvious one. Treatment of cancer discontinued because of pregnancy . Fatal fetal abnormality. The whole journey and trauma of it. Nobody choosing an abortion and its a last resort, but travelling under a veil of secrecy and lies and all that involves.

I agree. And I'm sorry to hear the story.

Shes lucky untouched by all this. But she has a massive bunch of family, of female friends, all surprisingly decent and supportive to one another.
Most of them put up with me, but, jesus, the stories on this have been harrowing.
To quote an old compadre ‘Jesus Skid, we imported our stuff from John Lewis and exported our pregnant kids out’
 
Nothing to do with Brexit (as most things on here aren't) but the abortion laws when introduced in the UK had the same high ideals. No abortion on demand, two doctors to say it was medically/psychologically necessary and all the other guff
It's now turned into another form of morning after contraception but up to 20 weeks after.
As in "Oh, F**K, I'm preggers. See a doctor and tell him it will affect my state of mind and they'll get rid of it", instead of "Oh, F**K, I'm preggers, See a doctor and tell him it'll spoil my week in Magaluf".
The two doctors turned into a farce. One doctor would sign for a reason and another would simply countersign without even seeing the slapper poor girl. (That;s unfair cos the bloke was the same but without the consequences)
Plenty of examples where it could interfere with their jobs rather than their medical well being.

Glad to hear of the support. Do you think it's a transformative political decision in NI?

I've not been there for a while, well, 1987, when I was briefly grandly titled as OC Newry.

I’m trying to remember the name of the unapproved road out of newry, which was probably better watched than the main route.

But yes, its a good thing, its long overdue. The political push from the UK and the RoI is going to be interesting.
 
Oh, goody. Only my second SABC from Baggy. I feel as if I've arrived.
Oh, and FYI baggy, as I worked in an inner city NHS practice for 14 years I may have a rather better idea than you as to how the system is actually played.
 
not necessarily god fearing. Some just find it repulsive to end a life just because you can't keep your legs shut or your d*ck to yourself.
Pish. Those who oppose abortion are on the whole religious. There are plenty of good reasons for abortion. I've always though that women are in the best position to argue the rights and wrongs of this and I'd be very reluctant to get on on any moral high horse as a male.
