Brexit Phase Two - Trade

We'll just ignore the historically awkward issue that it was the frightfully jingoistic British that had to step in on both occasions to stop the Euroneddies squabbling.
Another one who thinks that Britain won both world wars alone.

Strange for an Irishman with such a slavish devotion to the USA
 
At least we'll take Ireland down with us seems to be your argument.
Brexit is turning into a hostage situation.

We stare down the opposite side of the negotiating table waving an armed hand grenade threatening to blow ourselves up and rain exploding steel throughout the room, with Ireland absorbing a disproportionate amount of shrapnel.

They just need to give us exactly what we have now, but for free and without responsibility.
 
He was a vagina for suggesting Irish airspace could be denied to UK aircraft in the first place. It's not the act of a statesman, more the politics of the playground.

You thick ****!

The UK is removing itself from the current aviation agreements and putting nothing else in place.

How can someone be so incapable of thinking
 
You wish to expand on that?
Take all the time you need . I'm sure that's put Don Carlos mind at rest. Which means whatever they come up with, he should be thrilled and delighted with it.
Three words. How much easier can it be?
 
According to the Electoral Commission the total electorate on the day was 46,500,001 and 17,410,742 of them who bothered to get off their arses voted to leave.

(17,410,742/46,500,001) x 100 = 37.442% to three decimal places.

Or 37% to no decimal places.

So, erm, only 37% of the electorate voted to leave...
I'm feel so fceking sorry for your bleeding snowflake-hearted remainac Twonk self but that's not how how results are actually counted for the result to count.

There's no minimum number required. The side with the most votes wins.

Off you go and give your stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid pebble-sized brain a good shake, there's a silly thing.

Sigh.
 
I don't doubt. However, the original statement was that "the majority of voters*" voted to leave. Clearly the majority of voters didn't.



























*As in, the total number of people registered/eligible to vote (if they could be bothered).
Errr... voters are people who actually vote; they are not people who might have, could have, should have voted to keep you pixieland-fanatsy-remain-in-the-EU-land. Try to understand the basics of your own language, Twonk!
 
Jingoism is the mark of brexiteer rhetoric.

Sadly, there's no spear chucking lands abroad for the UK to colonise in the 21st century.

Forward to the past.
But there is the British electorate who’s wishes the remain camapiagn would like to ignore.

And about 34% voted to remain in the EU, with the voting intentions of the people that couldn't be bothered to vote an unknown factor.

That's you - that is.

Varadkar would do well to remember the old adage: Engage brain before putting mouth in gear.

Not least because if the UK decided to be obstructive over goods being imported/exported through UK ports, the ROI's economy would suffer a significant recession.

Before you start a willy waving contest, make sure yours is big enough to wave without people laughing at you.

Ireland's looking at serious economic damage in the event of a hard Brexit anyway, perhaps they see little to lose.

It could also be, that if Ireland is able to offer more routes and more competition to the rest of Europe they see a chance to nab some of the UK's long haul traffic.
 
May being stupid again.

Theresa May warns Brexiteers they cannot 'wash their hands' of the Irish border issue


That's exactly what i'd do. Tell the EU (wrapped up in diplomatic language) that HMG will impose a soft border on their side and if the EU and to fornicate the Irish economy by putting in a hard border on their side, go right ahead.

The EU has not been negotiating in good faith. About time we returned the compliment.

May still hasn't learned that if you behave like a doormat, people walk all over you.

Stupid woman.

We've only just agreed a position and you're foot stamping aboutique the EU?

Fair point. Though with eight months left to Brexit, there's probably not enough time to get realistic alternatives in place.
