Brexit could really shift the politics in NI. The Eurosceptics want to be outside the Single Market. That doesnt suit NI Protestants cos NI doesnt have England's immigration issue but also cos NI benefits from Europe.

You don't know any ni Protestants, so how do you make this stuff up

Referring to Thailand and Malaysia as examples of places where a lot of dairy is exported from Northern Ireland, he said the current export tariff is around 15%.“If we had to move to a WTO tariff that would double, that would kill that business,” he said. “What we need is a period of continued access to the EU free trade agreements for a period, but then we need the UK government to come in and start to negotiate and put in place free trade agreements that are specific to the UK to allow this business to continue.”Dr Johnston also warned that the industry is very dependent on free movement of milk, dairy products and people across the land border that has developed over the years through arrangements between the two jurisdictions.He said if that free movement was stopped, there would be a situation in which dairy farmers could be forced out of business. Barclay Bell, president of the Ulster Farmers Union, told the committee that the border “is a big, big issue when you consider the amount of cross-border trade”.“Anything that would complicate or hinder that trade certainly would be a big big challenge to the industry in Northern Ireland,” he warned.The agriculture and food processing sectors in Northern Ireland are a significant element of the local economy, collectively accounting for around 70,000 local jobs – based on 47,979 total farmers and workers and 23,557 food and drink processing workers.

Now, now, don't forget his poor uncle.  That's normally the line he trots out when his bigotry against  NI Protestants comes to the fore.

MR, Brexit is an English issue.
People in NI like Europe. Brexit is going to hurt farming. For the first time in a while the interests of Unionists and Englishpeople diverge. And it is about money which is also interesting.

Had a chortle at the BBCNI News yesterday evening, the NI Fishing industry were vociferously pro- Brexit but are now bleating about how a very high percentage of fleets are manned by Non-UK/Ireland EU Citizens and they will undoubtedly need special dispensation to be allowed to hire these same people pro-Brexit.

Saw that myself. Talk about wanting it every way. The gist was let us use cheap foreign labour until the "lost generation" of local men with the right skills to go to sea are up to speed. Then we wont need the cheap labour anymore. Aye right.

Hurt farmers??? Farming has been getting it tough for years... would see a lot of farmer though my door and they have been getting it tough year in year out! That's before brexit ffs! As for it being an English thing it doesn't matter as collectively it's been voted on and that's that!! No one I know (well they could have) voted for leave but hey it's here and that's that.

It's been drawn out something shocking!! I can't see how business won't be able to export in Europe to be honest...

The EU is a very small group run by the Germans... 70 odd years after losing the war in Europe they have it over a barrel....

The EU is 27 Countries with a population of something like 400m.

If that's "small" ......fair enough.

MR, the advantage of being inside the EU is tariff free trade. That means higher profits for NI farmers. It means higher taxes for HM Treasury.
