Re: Britain outside the EU

I'm all for owning it, it's easy . . just don't send any chilled meat to anyone in the EU . . and if that includes Northern Ireland (who are NOT in the EU) then I'm fine with that.

Let the Irish and their puppet masters sort out what THEY want, and leave the sausage eating to us

Incidentally, what sausages do Southern Ireland shops sell?

Correct, however, effectively NI remains within the EU's single market for goods.

hmm so the problem isn't with the Irish buying & eating our sausages, it's with the potential sell on to an EU country?

If someone asked how to spell 'peculiar' I'd write it, not post a link to a dictionary

I forgot to ask this earlier. Boris always said he was prepared to walk away. The question therefore begs, why didn't he? If 'silly terms' were the terms offered.

In my mind there's a couple of possibilities

1. The UK government didn't understand the terms offered.
2. The UK government whilst publicly proclaiming that they were prepared to walk away, believed that a no deal scenario was significantly worse.

Re: Britain outside the EU

I'm sure if you dig far enough you'll find the answer you seek.

I'm betting it has something to do with 'expert economic advisors' though

Answers 2. and 3. are not mutually exclusive though.

Re: Britain outside the EU

The UK wishes to portray the EU as obsessed with bureaucracy and believes that in this issue there’s a real chance they can get the EU to do it for them.

That line may play well to a British audience. It's to BoJo's advantage that he's hosting the summit and that Biden will be meeting the Queen afterwards.

But let's not forget that the G7 includes three EU countries plus another EU representative who will all be queuing up to bend Biden's ear. Biden will doubtless be well briefed by the Irish and is likely to put some pressure on BoJo to honour what he has signed.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Talking of the Irish, any news snippets on this subject from the First Minister or Deputy?

I guess they have more important issues this week, and sausages can play a back role
