No disrespect equitrader, but if John McGrane, Director General of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce and Dan O’Brien, Chief Economist, Institute of International and European Affairs say so that is good enough for me... However, agreed that if UK sources agri. produce from elsewhere then that sector in Ireland has bad times ahead.
But I am sure about one thing and that is that the British consumer will not be impressed with the record of Brazilian meat....
The scale of the UK-Irish economic and trading relationship is significant. John McGrane, Director General of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, said that it accounted for €60 billion a year in two-way trade and directly supported 400,000 jobs.
Dan O’Brien, Chief Economist, Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA), was clear that the UK was still hugely significant to Ireland’s economy.
On Scotland, I think you are missing the point... They are sick to death of being dictated to by Westminister and the English... Incidentally, Brexit passed to regain independence from the EU and not on economics so I sort of think you have contradicted yourself... When T May was asked what she hope to gain from leaving Europe, the interviewed replied to her by saying that she already had all the things she hope to gain by leaving...
Why cannot people look these stats up themselves. 16% of Ireland's exports go to UK Belgium 14 ( was above UK) US 23 Germany 7. Well spread very satisfactory up 14% year on year seasonally adjusted. IRELAND IS GOING WELL!! Scotland export 80% of their out put to rest of UK and with Trident and cheap oil would be bonkers to split - they cannot afford to! as I keep saying Merkel has £80 billion of cars to sell to UK annually. With the balance of trade in her favour not difficult to see the outcome.
The Brittish have just chucked the baby out with the bathwater! Scotland potentially could split from UK and lots of talk now of border poll... Who knows where we end up... Two years of guaranteed uncertainty with article 50 being triggered and many more as fallout of UK exit impacts UK and Irish economies? Do you know what proportion of our exports go to the UK? Sir, we are royally screwed... These are now the fundamentals! This is the quagmire irish compsnies will have to navigate thru!
