And that is why in another thread here I have condemned that as don't want to be in a US of Europe.
Yes i dare say that GB could leave the Irish Border open and we have been very good to them south of it loaning them billions at low interest as a help. The Irish Republic unfortunately has never been capable of proper running itself hence the kind of "acceptable" begging bowl attitude re Brussels. The country has completely about turned from decades of mixed ignorance. It is far better educated and the Roman Church been stopped from pulling the strings for generations. The general closeness between Gt Britain the Republic is positive and trust that continues as crossing the border is a lot less inconvenient than decades ago when I was young. However my regard for Ireland does not mean that we can have our strings pulled!
