    Good luck with Sasamach.
    Will we survive without our biggest trading partner, how does that work again?

    Maybe we can ask the EU to start up our sugar factories again.

    Well, we are talking about Europe, not America, we are also talking about real trade, not accountancy magic that shows balance books and money channelling through Ireland. So Ill ask you again, who is our biggest trading partner in Europe?

    You never asked before - but in the context of Brexit its a choice between EU and UK and as such the EU is by far our biggest market. It should also be remembered that we hold a negative trade balance with the UK ( so its not one way traffic) . Most of our European partners result in a positive balance - Belgium who you seem to have it in for actually affords us a positive balance of 13BN ( and yes I'm aware that its a stop off point for other markets)

    What a lot of issue avoidance.

    Address the question - who is the ROI's biggest trading partner in Europe?

    The EU isn't a trading partner, since you're part of it.

    There never was a question - but an untrue statement which I corrected, this of course was followed by
