love your neighbour

There is this Poker game going on, Europe says, there will be no deal possible and UK is likely to drop out without a deal and UK says, we’ll drop out without a deal anyway.

It’s just like children trying to impress each other, proposing strength that just aren’t there really.

So the EU has gotten Britain over a Barrell because of the Irish and Northern Ireland border.

I am trying to get to find out what the history of this is and how everything went to pot in these areas.

I know something about a potato famine, killing many Irish people because the UK took all those spuds away as exports. Yet being an immigrant without any relatives in Northern Ireland or Ireland, the facts are hazy for me. But looking this up on Wikipedia it seems the Irish Free State got established in 1922, not that long ago. In 1949 Ireland became a Republic.

Well it seems the British government needs to have a look into the relationship with the Home Nations because we constantly see squabbling over Scottish or Welsh independence. Perhaps the Queen wants to stand down and allow some fresh thoughts into the debate, as longest serving monarch, perhaps she also has the most troubles over her reign.

It is very important to firstly get on with your neighbours and always keep friendly with them because if circumstances change and a country is under International law and regulations, then there is nothing that can be done.

Britain cannot blame the EU for applying international law to the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, to ask them to do so, would be completely crazy. Unless of course the UK has gotten a secret argument and asks the EU to join a British deal with Britain being in charge. Yet that would jeopardise all other arrangements the EU would have with other nations.

Whilst Boris says Britain can save 1 Billion per month, the Insititute for Fiscal Studies says it would cost business 1 1/4 Billion to deal with administrative and other changes.

A no-deal Brexit would push the borrowing requirements for the UK to a 50-year high. So where is the rational basis for wanting out of the EU?
