Not sure about US but NI would qualify

The UK will not have a choice. Switz rejected free movement in 2014 and was kicked out of Erasmus.

And Irish citizens in Switz were kicked out also. NI will only qualify if there is a "deal", which of course there should be.

There will be a deal for the occupied territories. Barnier explicitly mentioned it. But England is banjaxed. Nice for a change.

The Erasmus thing is a big deal for Swiss universities.
Occupied by who?
The UK. Started in the 1600s with settlers

Vikings were here long before that ffs!

All the incomers prior to the planters in the 1600s were successfully integrated
The Vikings became O'Loughlins and Loftuses
the Normans became Fitzpatricks and Kilkenny hurlers

So did the UK start it? Or did you just make that bit up?
They needed quiet on the island to the west cos they were always fighting France for supremacy or else Spain. And they didnt want either interfering. The Spanish attacked in 1588. The natives were very cantankerous especially in Ulster. So in the early 1600s they started a plantation.  To every problem there is a solution that is neat, plausible and wrong.

I'm glad you cleared that up...,.

They might but no part of Ireland is under the rule of Denmark, Norway or Sweden.

No just Germany

Better than the Brits anyway.

The British did not start colonising Ireland,  but uniquely among the places mentioned they still continue to do it.

And comments about Germany are immature.

As a small country we will always be under various spheres of influence. But there is no comparison between that and British Rule over the centuries.

Giraldus Cambrensis worked for the Daily Mail during the middle Ages

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse_sacrifice
There is in a northern and remote part of Ulster, among the Kenelcunil, a certain tribe which is wont to install a king over itself by an excessively savage and abominable ritual. In the presence of all the people of this land in one place, a white mare is brought into their midst. Thereupon he who is to be elevated, not to a prince but to a beast, not to a king but to an outlaw, steps forward in beastly fashion and exhibits his bestiality. Right thereafter the mare is killed and boiled piecemeal in water, and in the same water a bath is prepared for him. He gets into the bath and eats of the flesh that is brought to him, with his people standing around and sharing it with him. He also imbibes the broth in which he is bathed, not from any vessel, nor with his hand, but only with his mouth. When this is done right according to such unrighteous ritual, his rule and sovereignty are consecrated.

Starting to get messy
NI is very fragile
A quote on the Supreme court last week. Would not have been necessary if Brexit had been planned.  I think it's what the Germans call a Schnappsidee. A drinking idea.

Brexit will hammer UK incomes. Maybe sense will prevail..
