More optimism over experience from the Brexiters. And less optimism in Dublin or Belfast. October 3, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
“You put it to me that we know that if we control our borders, we will not be able to get access to the European Union market, I said we don’t know that at all,” Mr Hammond said during an interview with ITV television.
Oh I think we do. I think we do.
By the way, another Tory politician who in their speeches refers not at all to the border on this island. And small wonder Charlie Flanagan is sounding a pessimistic note today. I would think the chance of said border being hard are very very high now. I share the sentiments expressed by Martin McGuinness but can’t see how they can be upheld:
“The Irish government has a very important role to play during those negotiation in representing the democratically voiced wishes of the people of Northern Ireland who want to remain in the EU.
Our position remains the same, we refuse to be dragged from Europe. We are not going to give in on the issue.”
