    EU to climbdown and allow UK to remain in Single Market?

    Rumours of this today. Sounds like a great deal for UK.

    Stay aligned for goods and free access but have the ability to negotiate trade deal for services and control immigration.


    Seems a big concession but EU has massive trade surplus in goods with UK.

    Well the proposals would not mean being part of the Single Market if there was no freedom of movement, no free trade in services and if they were free to make their own trade deals.

    If they get the right to control immigration from the EU, they wont be the last country to seek this arrangement, and I am very concerned that Ireland will be targeted by illegal migrants using the CTA as a transit to get here and the scale could be on 2004 levels for both legal and illegal migrants.

    My BS detector goes off at this story for some reason. What's the source for it?

    Isn't Leo looking for a million more immigrants before 2040?

    The Gardai are also concerned about illegal immigration after Brexit.
