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.

I know,  but I can't see trade stop altogether. As much as you'd like it to be, this won't happen...

As for developing trade with the other countries I've mentioned, that's just what's going to have to happen, and for a lot of companies they are currently doing this !
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

MR2 don't understand your post above

Not sure what countries that you think would make up for the exports that will be lost. And if these export opportunities are so exciting why aren't they being tapped already?

Not sure what you do for a living, but you are a bit of a self-appointed expert on the subject yourself.

I thought that you did the local notes in the Kerryman for the Presbyterian church in North Kerry giving the rundown on cake sales etc
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

You should be on stage, preferably in another part of the world.

I think you misunderstand the purpose of the post, which is not a serious discussion of international trade, but just an attempt to be contrary to other posters, or maybe MR2 is really Sammy Wilson.

In reality many EU countries have developed markets across the world and being in the EU hasn't stopped them. Switzerland has a "trade deal" with China, but UK trade with China has grown more quickly in recent years than Swiss trade with China.

We don't know what will be lost, until it's done! To say that the UK will collapse and require a bail out like the republic got is silly... if ni ends up with food banks that are unable to feed people and charge people£50 to have a doctors appointment (normally the done thing down South) then I think we'll be in the shit... at the minute Britain has actually improved lately as companies continue to invest and deal with Britain.. globally countries will continue to do what's best for them as will companies...

The scare of brexit has actually disappeared in most place bar Galway

Another nonsense post. Nobody, or at least few people, are saying that the UK will collapse (although Scotland might leave and the peace settlement in NI might collapse). They are saying that the economy will be less in 5 years time than it would otherwise have been, with a great deal of pointless disruption caused in the meantime. Companies will do what is best for them, and this xenophobia driven project is not good for a lot of them.

And alluding to a different system of charging for doctors, as is it was somehow relevant, is just immature.

I'm sorry. I thought you actually had a serious point to make. Now I see you are full of shit.

Today's leak shows NIs standing. May is about to invalidate the GFA. The ditching of NI and the £9billion is about to become a political football. Cross border bodies about to be strengthened.

Interesting times for team Brexit.

Tell me again why this is a good thing?

In none of my posts about brexit have I said it's a good thing, I've just said it won't be as bad as seafoid wants it to be... that's me being optimistic, it could send us back to the 50's  but  I'm thinking more back to 2007 when the banks fucked up...

Grow up MR2, there’s no need for that sort of foul mouthed stuff.
 
Anyway, your childish logic seems to be that because the NI weathermen got the weather forecast wrong in AN AREA of the province, there’s no point listening to anyone’s opinion about the economic repercussions of exiting the EU.  (Except, bizarrely, yours!)  And there’s not much point debating with anyone that uses that sort of logic.
 
I’m away to make a snowman.

You cant throw comments at me for being childish when you post the same stuff?

My point on brexit is that while it will have a huge bearing on us financially, it wont be to the extent that seafoid wants... or to the extent of the 2006/7 crash..

From a sales point of view i havent seen people holding on to their money, hopefully that stays like that, otherwise i'll be back teaching!!

Rubbish, I'd never use that word. It has horrible connotations and I've zero respect for anyone who uses it.  Especially in the context you just did.  Now remind me, is it going to be as bad as 2007 or is it not?  Because you've performed a Givan-esque flip on this one in the space of a few days.  Also, could you tell me what qualifies you to make such a confident prediction?  Because when someone posts the opinion of someone who is qualified to speak, you are intent on rubbishing it.  It would seem that, like trump and the leave voters, you've embraced the post-truth movement wholeheartedly.  I'm glad other posters are now also calling you on your bullshit.
