The reason our National Childrens Hospital is going to cost 1.2 billion to build (fitted out my guess between 1.5 and 2) is because of EU restrictions and red tape. There was a developer from America on the radio today saying he could build it anywhere in the US for 500 mil.
Construction inflation lol
Our Prawns and chickens come from Thailand,they package them here and suddenly they are guaranteed Irish. Horse meat being marketed as prime beef..
You really are a dingbat.blinded by liberal media...
How little you know of Italy! You paint a picture that is totally wrong. Italy has 3 economies. The ordinary documented one. Then there is the black economy at least as big to by pass very high rate of IVA (VAT) and finally as big again the Mafiaa economies. Mafia proper, Sacro Coronata, Ndrangeta, Etc. That is why Italy is in such a state. The access to tariff free markets of EU is a red herring. and of course unlike Britain Italy is a big manufacturer from clothes to cars to fairground rides and agricultural equipment. Indeed she is supplying the trains for one UK franchise soon. And I believe possibly for HS2 if it ever gets built. Funny that Trump Is so against free trade!
The economic advantages are mainly trade related: Italian producers have access to the European market without paying tariffs, and with no exchange rate risk. They also meet the EU quality, health and safety standards, which are the highest in the world and thus ensures them virtually unhindered access to hundreds of markets around the world. By belonging to the most powerful trade bloc in the world, Italy and its producers can negotiate advtangeous deals wtih non-EU countries for importing the raw materials they need for their production.
Talking thru your ding dong again bruce. Above are the advantages.
A Grat place to live. friendly people , wonderful food, art treasures, cultured urbane. Roads and driving bad, bureaucracy and politics mad. Still great value and lovely. EU gives no support to us or Greece. Commissioner States only 10% of refugees dealt with. Better than Cold Hearted May Queen. Only 350 unaccompanied children of 3000 taken of which 100 still away
Lives in Italy - he tells us - Europe is BONKERS - presumably he means Italy in particular !!!
Surely he knew that before he decided to live there - since he hasn't left yet I can only presume that there are fringe benefits such as lower property prices (when he bought), better climate, cheaper and better food grown locally and of course the wine.
For someone now living on a pension these are all considerations not to be overlooked - then of course there is also the matter of selling property in Italy, which may leave you pining for the warm beer (with no head) the wet weather and the burgers and popadoms which now seem to be staples of the English diet these days amongst the younger generation.
The old green fields always look better over the hill.
