Tony Connolly's articles are second to none for an insight on Brexit.

Salzburg was just the beginning of what was always going to be an interesting Autumn and it gave even more fireworks that expected.

Tory Party conference next week should be interesting also. The word is that the grass roots are dead against Chequers (or maybe they are just shouting loudest) so was Theresa May's posturing last week aimed at winning over them?

I suspect we will see it wheeled out again in a watered down form to appease the EU (in spite of May's tough guy facade) when it will be up for a vote at Parliament. She would be looking to Labour for support on it as the Brexiteers (and probably the DUP) will rebel.

Does anyone here own or work for a company in the ROI that exports to the UK? What's their thoughts? Surely they want a free trade deal?
We're only really getting the UK version, but surely companies in ROI and indeed France, Germany etc are shitting themselves at the prospect of a no deal Brexit?
Is there any good articles floating about regarding this?

Why?
The Brits will still require the products those countires produce, it is just to cost them significantly more than it did when they were in the EU.

If they currently importing the goods, there isnt that capability to produce themselves and this will not happen over night so therefore if they want the products they will have to import.

What if the cost is prohibitive and they simply won't use that product/ good/ service. They just do without?
Around 90% of Ireland's Agri products are exported to the UK. That probably includes a lot of perishable goods. Things that can't sit in customs checks.
What about costs of exporting to Mainland Europe? I don't think it just a case of Britain can suck it up.

So what if you work for an Irish company owned by a Danish company which has a global market for its goods... will that have an effect on the jobs, costs, pricing? The question has been asked but there are no answers other than ‘it will be grand’
