@Dutchy breathe mate, you'll give your self a heart attack
Yes, you do. You deliberately put Ireland in a tight spot. Choose between the Good Friday Agreement or the common market. There is no solution to this if there is a hard Brexit. There needs to be a solution and as the record shows with Brexit, time limit will not solve anything. So the limit is put on the outcome and it should be.
And as you deny this, you are not taking any responsibility for your vote, as I have stated before and you are illustrating again.
its a bit different when the shoe is on the other foot, EU was quick to hang TM out to dry with the WA now hey.
The time limit is in place so you cant keep the UK in the CU indefinitely, don't you get why parliament will not pass the WA as it stands
WA was a negotiated agreement. And your parliament wants more. You decided to leave, you leave Ireland hanging to dry, not Irelands fault.
Do you see why the end result is the thing that matters, not the time limit? Time limit is not acceptable to the EU otherwise the end result can be that Ireland is split and thus breaking the Good Friday Agreement. You wanted to leave, it is for you to come up with a sollution for the situation you created/
The EU is ready to enforce the rules and will do so, in line with everything ever discussed and agreed up on.
The EU is getting ready to throw ROI under the bus, just like they did with TM. [/quote]
TM wasn't thrown under a bus. The UK is ready to throw the RoI under a bus. Don't put it the other way around. You wanted to leave, you agreed to EU and WTO rules, it is up to your country.
Merkel pressed Varadkar to explain his position that the government wouldn’t ever introduce physical infrastructure on the 310-mile (500-kilometer) border -- the German leader was concerned that this risked undercutting the EU’s negotiating position on the so-called backstop.
it might be worth them abandoning the EU as well and re-establishing the Anglo-Irish free trade agreement [/quote]
Is that the end plan? Chain Ireland again to the UK? It is apparently ok for the UK to force itself on another country, and they will be the very junior partner in this agreenement, but the preceeved control of the EU is a big no-no, so if the shoe is on the other foot it is ok.
EU tax plan ‘is a bigger threat to Ireland than Brexit’
State could lose €4bn in taxes if corporate tax harmonisation is adopted, expert says
This has nothing to do with Brexit. But I guess you are not in favor of fair taxation and reducing corporate loopholes. But part of the 4bn in revenue comes from European HQ of Internationals in Ireland, they will lose those if they abandon the EU.
Things have changed quite a bit since the last referendum in Scotland, wouldn't you say? The UK put itself on a collision course with itself, so only fair that Scotland has another say in leaving because of changed circumstances. You wouldn't want a country to keep in chains because you are not ready to accept a different outcome, right? Democracy isn't the dictature of the majority.
ah off you go to the broken record keep asking for referendum until you get the result you want, Oliver Twist "please sir i want some more"
No, a fair chance to vote now that circumstances have changed, and oh man did they change, not even you will be able to deny it. Same for the public vote, put the end result to the people.
Coup d'état? Now you are being just melodramatic.
If they are willing to drop their pants in parliament, who knows what they will do next [/quote]
The Brixteers are willing to put the country itself in jeopardy. So a few people protesting in a ludic way without hurting anyone is quite modest I would say.
Oh come on, not the old "they need us more, then we need them" rhetoric, this is becoming so old and Merkel and others already said that the integrity of the EU is far more important than trade with the UK. I feel the same, so let others fill the void, go ahead. You have 70 trade deals to make, all of whom will be at most the same as the EU and most probably far worse, and a trade deal will take around ten years to make. But you have detached yourself from reality, that doesn't mean it doesn't exsist.
it was you who brought up going to the back of the que, but its a simple fact of life if you don't want to sell to us I'm sure your competitor will. economics 101
And at what price would you like to trade. 85% import tariff free and killing your own producers? We have quite a few trade agreements - the EU will crash out of them all - so I am sure we will find other markets. 65million is less than 500million, economics 101......
And there you go, you will not face the ultimate consequence, you will leave when your vote causes the UK to crash. I have even less respect for your point of view. You have the same back door as Farage, Rees Mogg and the other city bunch. People whom will pay the price have no choice in leaving and a large portion didn't even vote for leaving. I have even less respect for your point of view.
So even though I have been planning my retirement well before the government position prior to Brexit was known I cant enjoy my life if and when I choose to retire early or not, just because on your say so, your dreamin mate[/quote]
The point is, you are fighting for something which you can escape if the expected downfall comes. And that, my friend, is hipocracy, just like the other hardliners with plans of their own.
