    No, I deal with them every day.

    We digress (as usual on p.ie).

    Happy to discuss economics of Brexit on another thread.

    OP is about the border.

    Ruth Dudley Edwards says Ireland wishes to "exploit Britain’s difficulties by blocking access to the second stage of negotiation" in order to "exert maximum leverage".

    All I can say is that I certainly hope so!

    Is that nutter still peddling her toxic shyte?

    Are we ever going to be rid of the revisionist lunatics like RDE and Harris? The feckers must all be in their 70s and 80s at this stage and still screeching away

    I'll tell you what's silly.

    Referring to 'trade', or 'biggest trading partner'.

    When the US govt bought country size tracts of land from Indian tribes for a few shiny beads and a bottle of whiskey, the Indians became the US's largest trading partner.

    What matters is not 'trade', it is how much we sell to them.


    Not a lot considering. We have a huge trade deficit with the UK. They sell us a lot more than we sell them.

    In essence they are as large a 'trading partner' with us as they are because we are too lazy to source items from non English speaking countries.

    So do I. As a bit of an anglophile myself, I've sometimes found myself agreeing with her in the past, but at this stage all I can do is smile at her amazing capacity to ignore Irish interests in her efforts to defend her beloved British.

    There is something in that. We need to get better at languages.

    Of course. But would be useful to see a genuine effort of P.iesters to get behind a single issue for once. I was also half cut writing the OP.
