Northern Ireland has always shown that it does not want to be part of a united Ireland. That is the only reason why the counties were detached in the first place.
No, if Ulster is going to look for a way to remain in the EU, the natural, logistical connection is with Scotland.

If you want the troubles to become an all out civil war then this is the best way to do it reunification with Ireland.I don't think England would let the plantation go so easily.

England would have done, in 1914. Only the threat of violence in the north was holding them back.

It is meant as a show to force through long needed reforms to the EU....in my humble opinion
Countries are already saying quite loudly that this has shown reforms are needed
Once that's done...we'll be back in...if we ever actually leave which I doubt

The scenario on relying on funding would not have happened had we not started the ridiculous trading of our resources such as importing foreign coal etc which decimated our mining industry, importing steel which did the same to British Steel and subsidising our farmers because prices were set in Brussels and import quotas forced upon us

We wouldn't have needed to import foreign coal and steel if the UK government had backed both industries they way they freely backed the Banks in 2008.

I heard an interesting comment from a farmer on BBC radio yesterday. He believes the price of beef are too low and the wives of the UK should be paying more. I dont know about you, but the last time i checked we in the UK pay waaay over the odds for meat. £7-£8 for 1lb of sirlion steak and the greedy bastards want more. ?

Farmers and fishermen plead poverty. The reality is they do very well in life compared to the rest of us. Very well indeed.

I wonder how the Farmers will cope now they dont have EU subsidies to fall back on. A typical large farm/land owner could easily make £150k a year in EU subsidies alone.

Quite it is possible perhaps that the fishing industry when untied from the quotas of Brussels etc could recover and therefore the ship building industry too. There are possiblities galore if handled correctly and sensibly as I've said on another post....if we stop being forced to import coal maybe mines could re-open, perhaps Trade Unions could have some clout and actually protect their members..the workers....instead of being pen pushing nobodies....maybe if foreign workers were limited our own nurses could get a job at the end of their training instead of being either forced into the private sector or leaving the country.

It could go really really well after time....it could also go tits up....and it could also go the way I believe it was intended...a nice little show to push the EU into reforms whereby the UK doesn't actually invoke Article 50 at all and remains in the newly styled EU

I'm just quoting what the guy said...He definitely said.."The British housewife should be paying more for his produce".

Can we agree that the "Paying More" is the most important issue here.?

Actually, I'm not sure it is.
That sounds like something a politician from America in 1958 would say.

Totally agree , my city used to have about 15,000 fisherman now we have a couple of hundred at best , and shipyards closed.

What you need is investment and development to get these things possible and not some factory in Poland .

And if it does go tits up , at least we did it ourselves and Brussels didn't do it an our behalf .
