    And adequately explained in the other thread.
    Making sweeping statements based on flimsy claims is quickly becoming your forte.

    Your impression, of transam's bigoted and nonsensical comments, are becoming ever more frequent.

    Edit:
    But Macron's use of a Latin phrase is most appropriate:
    When it comes to promoting his French and Latin lessons in college, Emmanuel Macron is the first to shine.
    Today, the expression "pacta sunt servanda" is used in public international law. It means that States must respect their obligations in a contract, a commitment, an agreement and thus cannot get rid of them. It is a cardinal concept since it recalls the rights and duties of each State.

    Re-used by Ursula Von der Leyen
    “We found the one and only solution,” Ms von der Leyen said. “We have a treaty on that, a Withdrawal Agreement, it has been signed by both sides. Pacta sunt servanda,” – agreements must be kept.

    The 15% Irelands loss amounts to £38m - no self respecting Tory MP would even get a dodgy PPE contract for such a risible amount.

    As to CIWF - their views on the Australia UK Trade Deal are so strong they have a campaign against it.

    As it was eloquently pointed out.

    The greatest rebuttal of Brexit is in it's implementation.

    Famers, Fishermen, Musicians and now steel workers.

    Bloody Woke, the lot of them.

    "Brit" voters as you call them will have no say.
    The Irish Republic won't want N. Ireland because the price they will have to pay will be too great.
    It is very easy to talk about Unionists as if they don't exist.

    The RoI biggest trading partners are the EU and the USA, if these two economies decide to turn the screw on the RoI in regards to its money laundering activities, then the RoI is donald ducked. Its only hope of survival will be to leave the EU and enter into some sort of economic relationship with post Brexit UK.
    That way they will have economic security and maybe a united Ireland.

    'Briefings for britain'...lol

    Plenty of 'unionists' (mainly the younger generation who don't want a return to violence and a future within the EU) are now campaigning for a united Ireland...

    It's just a matter of time!

    A United Ireland will bring the UK and ROI closer it will happen but not how you want it.

    A united Ireland will happen as a result of closer ties with EU.

    Ireland ferry Cos are already expanding their routes to Europe

    and France has massively increased its sales to Ireland -cos guess what....brexit has put loads of barriers in da way

    One thinks that this brexit caper is causing issues in NI

    it could well pall into insignificance compared to the trouble that could occur if a united Ireland is forced onto the unionist community
     
  16. How could it ever be "forced"? Have you read the rules relating to a border poll?
     
  17. Not as easy, it seems, as it is to talk about them as if they were more significant than they are.
