      Maybe so but given what is coming down the tracks, the fact that two out of three of the major parties are working together is a good thing. The more stability the better because ‘in the national interest’ has never rang so true.

          Interestingly, due to our current 10 year bond rate of 0.8%, the interest on our national debt is only slightly larger than the interest on the 40bn we owed in the 80’s.

          If we can roll it over a few more times inflation will ease the burden.

          And yes it is still a burden we should not have but it is FF’s legacy.

            Well FF did sign us up to cover the debts of their banker and builder mates so, in this case, it’s justified.

            In plenty of others, homelessness for example, it’s not.

          Wow! You DO have a short memory don’t you?!! Remember the post-Brian Cowen dictatorship led by Enda…? No? And how the new Penal Laws (ska Austerity taxes) were forcibly brought in by whipping cowardly TDs into submission, prohibiting debate and guillotining all proposed amendments OUT before signing corrupt laws into our statute books?? Maybe you are too young/ too old to recall? Well, I’m not! Thank GOD!!! :-|

            exactly Justsayinlike. I have to laugh at how everyone says that SF would be the ruination of the economy based on nothing but what they hear from others. SF can’t do nearly as much damage as what FF FG LAB Independent Alliance and the Greens have done to this country and its citizens. Time to drain the swamp!

    Here is a question for you all. What happens if Britain leave without a deal and keep their word but the EU insist on a border? That puts Ireland in an impossible position because on one hand they are bound by EU rules yet on the other, constrained by the GFA. The will to erect a border is not there anyways of course, as it would be political suicide.

      The border becomes the Irish Sea.. which has been the case since the vote went through.. might be easier to have EU customs in Scotland and not Larne.. but that’s the reality..

      Reply
        1. ReproButina

          The border being in the Irish Sea means the customs posts will be on ports and airports across the island of Ireland, rather that on the land border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

          During the height of the troubles the House of Commons was told that trying to “enforce the inviolability of the land frontier as a military operation” would simply be impossible. The violence has ended but the impossibility of maintaining controls on the border remains.

            Yes the most likely outcome but also, the Unionist nightmare. Not that the DUP are in any way consistent in their demands because they don’t want ether abortion or equal marriage so it is only when it suits.

            If no agreement, Britain being outside of the EU mean that it will require a passport stamped or will the CTA cover that? I wold expect that at least a passport will need to be produced, otherwise how would they differentiate between Irish / British citizens and others?

          2. ReproButina

            The CTA is a bit of a minefield. There’s no CTA Act, for example, so it’s all very vague. A lot of it is just understandings and historic practices. The CTA “should” remain, and it’s one area that there has been as close to a joint Anglo Irish position presented to the EU as possible, but its future is not set in stone. It extends beyond simple travel though. The CTA allows Irish citizens in the UK access Irish pensions and allows British subjects in Ireland access theirs. That’s all up in the air now. Just another reality that the Sasamachs were oblivious too.

          3. Giggidygoo

            So, if a Northern Ireland based company wants to export to Southern Ireland (the EU) coming by road down the M1, which UK Port Of Departure and which EU Port Of Arrival will be used?
            If people are traveling from southern Ireland to Northern Ireland in their car, and filling up with cheap alcohol and then travelling NI to IE, how is that going to be controlled? (for example, I spent almost £220 two weeks ago in Northern Ireland, buying wines at less than half the price it is in the south. Additionally I could buy 204 Nicotinell lozenges for £20 while the price for 96 down south is €17 to €21 depending on where you buy them)
            How would that situation be controlled with a sea border?

          4. ReproButina

            If the border is in the Irish Sea then Northern Ireland remains in the customs union and your examples are no different from somebody driving from France to Belgium. No customs border is crossed so no controls are required.

          5. Ollie Cromwell

            ” If people are traveling from southern Ireland to Northern Ireland in their car, and filling up with cheap alcohol and then travelling NI to IE, how is that going to be controlled?

            Now you understand why even a majority of Catholics in Northern Ireland don’t want a united Ireland.

            the only reason, the only reason that the drink, nappies, persil, tyres, American fridges (almost ad infinatum) are worth the trip up north is because your boys are shoveling £10+bn or whatever sum it is per annum in…when your wet dream Britainna rules the waves experiment kicks off & the cashflow stops I give it 3-5 years max to 32 counties.

            I agree with you on one thing…we, Ireland, ARE fckd. We’re getting norniron whether we like or not.

            It’s a big card trick.

          7. Giggidygoo

            @reprobutina. Quite a difference. NI is the UK. Once the UK makes its trade agreements, goods can be sent directly to Northern Ireland from outside the EU, as NI is part of the UK. And you’re saying that these will then be treated as EU goods if they travel NI to IE?
            And you then say that no customs border is crossed and no controls needed? I know, and you should know, that’s a load of rubbish.
            The only solution is an EFTA type agreement and that still doesn’t cover the Newry trips by southern people. Guaranteed that if there is a hard brexit, there will be at the very least spot checks for private cars, and customs procedures for commercial movements…..whether that is electronic movements or whatever. Currently, goods being imported into ireland under customs procedures go through a clearance process based on customs entries.
            Green – Entry accepted as is, goods can move straight through
            Orange – Further information required (more documentation)
            Red – Customs examination.
            And those are based on a consignment basis. So, unless the truck is going to a bonded warehouse, there are going to be delays on vehicles that are carrying groupage (i.e. a number of different clients goods) as one consignment going orange or red will delay the complete truck.
            And that would also apply to goods coming in under EFTA type agreement.
            Leo will need his extra customs officers.

          8. ReproButina

            I’m not saying anything Giggidy. I’m just telling you what the backstop that the British Taoiseach agreed to (the denied, then agreed to, then denied but hinted at) is. NI in the EU customs union and Britain outside of it so duty & taxes would apply when goods move from one to the other.

            This stuff is all in the public domain and has been since last year so I don’t know why it’s news to you.

            He did go too far with you when you revealed personal details a couple of weeks ago, that was not right.

            I care very much what happens to this country, in all 32 counties. Whether I tie myself in knots trying to get people to agree with my views, is another matter. We’re all opionated adults, we can get along without having identical political beliefs and thrashing them to death every day, hopefully having a bit of craic along the way. Life’s too short.

          15. SOQ

            And if you doubt what I am saying, consider this: ANY change in the political structure of NI will result in violence. If the border goes where the jurisdiction’s change it will result in serious repercussions and if in the Irish sea, likewise. Just look at what happened in Derry over the 12th ffs and that in what we call peace time.

            Trolling is a form of censorship by people who think they are more clever than the rest of us. But they are not, they are just empty vessels with stupid juvenile agendas. When someone new who may have something to say looks at that sh|te they just move on, and nobody can blame them.

            that’s from 2015, charger – so hardly “the last major canvas”

            there have been several since then. one from queens / BBC in june of this year put support for a united Ireland at 42% (across both communities), broadly the same as want to remain part of britain

            the more embarrassing the brexit sh itshow becomes, the more those in NI will want out

          3. Ollie Cromwell

            The most recent Queens poll only found 21% of people in NI in favour of a united Ireland.
            The BBC poll was an online poll – these polls are notoriously inaccurate.
            The BBC/RTE poll from 2015 was the last major opinion poll involving face to face interviews of more than 2,000 north and south of the border.
            You’ve no chance of a united Ireland.

        3. GiggidyGoo

          @repro. NI can’t be in both the EU and the UK for customs purposes if there’s a brexit. Goods originating in England will be able to move to NI without tariffs, as they are one and the same nation. If those same goods are then moved from NI to IE then what’s happening is that UK goods would actually come into Europe tariff free. And IE could move them onto mainland Europe on direct ferries as EU goods. The effect is that the UK has managed to export its goods to the EU without tariffs. And the same could happen in reverse. Not happening in my opinion.

          2. ReproButina

            The backstop was agreed in December 2017 and, despite May’s back-pedalling, as far as the EU is concerned it will be part of the exit agreement.

        Do you mean the European continent? We don’t call it that. We don’t call Britain ‘Blighty’ either. It’s a WW2 term which Britons use to describe Britain’s resilience against invasion in the 1940s. If you are going to discuss Ireland’s impact from Brexit, get your terminology straight. I am assuming you are a hard core British tabloid reader as you spout their language an awful lot here.

            A true world stateswoman respected across the globe for her achievements.
            Saw off the miners,Argentina and the IRA.
            Thatcher also saw through Haughey’s criminality and deceit when most people in Ireland,apart from a few like Vincent Browne,were too slow to work out how he possessed so much on a humble politician’s salary.
            Even today she would be one of the most recognisable people in the world.

      It’s called forward planning.
      Most companies have contingency plans in place for all different scenarios.
      In Easyjet’s case no UK jobs will be lost and passengers will notice no discernible difference after Brexit.
      The same thing is happening in the City of London – a few back office staff could be relocated to get around EU legislation but the reality is no major institution expects any real change whatever the outcome of Brexit negotiations which is why so much office space is being sold at a record premium and more jobs are being created in the Square Mile.
      Goldman Sachs – one of the biggest architects of Project Fear – have admitted only a fraction of their staff could be moved.

    With all that has been going on, the one thing we do know is that the the risk of a global recession in 2019 has now significantly increased. Get ready for it because it’s going to be on a scale never seen before. The likes of Leotard and his band of merry minions aren’t competent enough to understand what’s going to happen. When it happens not even the craziest of Leotards socks will deflect from the anger that they are going to face from citizens in this country. Sinn Fein are on the cusp of power. A general election in the morning will probably see FG re elected. FF are finished based on the reality that people will never trust them again. FG will rightfully be exposed for their reckless management of this country and will most likely not make it past the end of 2019 before being relegated to the opposition benches for a very long time. SF will be a vociferous opposition party and will very effectively garner all that public anger and translate it to votes. It won’t be this next election but the one after that where SF will be in power, most likely as a coalition of Social Democrats and Independents. Leotard will be remembered as the worst Taoiseach and Leader of this country ever. Quite the honour to achieve when you consider how pathetic all our previous leaders have been. Things will never be the same in this country. Finally people are starting to realise how much they have been conned and fockked over by the very people who they elected to protect them.

            Brit-bashing good, Irish-bashing less so.
            Toys,pram etc.
            Twas ever thus.

          The Irish do like a nice Royal Wedding.
          Especially as the Irish equivalent of celebrity is Daniel and Majella.
          ” Ooooh look,they’re building a new conservatory onto their house.Lets make a five-part prime time series on that.The boggers will be transfixed. ”

          This relentless anti Irish stuff from me is getting boring. I better lay off a bit or I’ll get banned.

            Ollie, if you haven’t been barred yet, I’d say you’ll be ok. My comments are interfered with, I couldn’t give a flying winky, it’s not like I don’t know who it is, let her carry on, keeps her busy…

            Don’t stop commenting, people don’t have to respond, I for one, need a good laugh every day.

            @ Yep

            You have to read between the lines, if I say who I think it is, my comments will be given ‘special’ treatment.

    Whatever is said on here is not going to change what happens, when the changes are implemented on the back of Brexit.

    Me arguing with you or Ollie or every Tom, Dick and Harry on here is not going to prevent rioting and all the rest of it. Enjoy today, it may be all we have…

      The whole purpose of a comment section is to comment, otherwise why have it at all? It doesn’t matter if this clown is what he presents as or is sitting with a penny whistle up his jackside, the objective is the same, to provoke extreme reactions and to shout down moderate views. And it is working because people are leaving.

      We are heading into the biggest crisis of our lifetime, nothing of this scale has ever happened before. The very least we should be able to expect is to have a place where we can collectively interpret the events of the day without some poisonous snake slithering around hijacking threads by goading people.

          what area of the oncoming BIGGEST crisis that’s imminent in your mind – would you say you have expertise in ?

            I wouldn’t say expertise but conversations to date point to the SME sector in the border counties of Louth, Monaghan and Cavan who are already under pressure because of an 18% drop in income due to sterling. Their main and usually only clients are in the UK and they do not have the resources to diversify into other markets.

            Two particular areas of concern in the above counties would be food produce because of its shelf life and high end engineering products because they will be cheaper from elsewhere, especially with new tariffs. Food more Monaghan / Cavan and engineering more Louth but both a large part of SMEs in the border region.

            And then there is the north of course, a gust of wind would tip the balance up there. Any change in the current arrangements will throw the place into chaos.

            So you’ve no expertise really in any area, just more stating the bleeding obvious, mixed in with outdated 1980’s gay ‘jokes’ and juvenile sexual suggestions-you’d be a big loss…….

            Never said I was an expert honey, at least not in anything I discuss here.

            Broadsheet is it not time you ran anti virus over your member base because you clearly have a bad infection?

        A comment section should be open to one and all, we won’t like or agree with some contributions, that’s life, everyone is entitled to post regardless.

        Brexit won’t take, break or own me and it’ll not own you either. Things may/will change and we’ll adjust. Life is constantly altering, it hasn’t killed us yet.

        Spending too much time on a news site is maybe keeping you in a constant state of fear, that’s not a good thing if it’s affecting you to that degree. If I’m not feeling the best or in negative form, I read positive affirmations and humourous stuff on Pinterest, i also watch clips of Peter Kay doing stand-up, his TV show Car Share and episodes of The Blame Game and Frankie Boyle on YouTube, few wee tips from the top ;-)

          Of course everyone is entitled to have an opinion, that is the whole point but this is not an opinion, it is a performance, This is nothing to do with the news, this is to do with censorship of opinions. You already said yourself you think this is a troll. Nobody, even John Taylor, could be that pig ignorant.

          It’s up to Broadsheet what they want to do but it is harming their business.

            Precisely.
            The reality is the snowflakes on here like to dish it out but stamp their feet and scweam and scweam and scweam if the return fire isn’t what they want to hear.
            Unless there’s a bit of virtue being signalled it doesn’t fit with their narrative.
            Pathetic really.

    Never thought I’d say this, but I actually miss david at this point.

    Come back friend, all is forgiven.

      I don’t know what david said to be worse than Ollie but bizarrely david’s comments are removed but Ollie’s overtly racist bile is not.

        Bit of a scorched earth policy there when it comes to David. Did I miss him doing something particularly awful, or is my memory shot?
