    If Marine Le Pen becomes French President and France leaves the EU, what then 4 Ireland?

    Marine Le Pen has a good chance of becoming French President and has promised to hold a referendum on France's membership of the EU. If France leaves the EU should Ireland stay in the EU or leave?

    In either case, Ireland should now start working on a formal relationship with the UK that would be at least as strong as our current EU one

    You mean, 'build another rat's burrow' just in case loike.

    10 Rat Facts

    If a rat is trapped and released it can move up to four miles from the release point.
    A rat burrow can be three meters deep but is rarely more than 0.5 meters deep.
    Brown rats show a tendency to be negative geotaxis which means they prefer to move downwards as opposed to upwards.
    Black rats are superior climbers and can climb any slightly roughed surface up or down.
    Brown rats can jump vertically more than 77cm and 120cm horizontally.
    At one time 11-31% of all female rats are pregnant.
    Patterns of movement become so engrained in rats that when they get used to moving around an obstacle, if the obstacle is removed they will continue to move around it. Thus the correct siting of trap means they do not have to be baited but it is imperative they are placed directly on the run.
    Female rats can distinguish the sex of their offspring by smell.
    Rodents can live and breed in cold stores and have been known to nest in the fat layer of carcasses.
    Rats eat up to 10% of their body weight a day and cannot live without access to water.

    Correct - and it should nominate Sean Gallagher and Joan Burton to do so.

    Between them they would charm us so totally Ireland would get a sweetheart deal.

    Why would Ireland leave the EU? (Assuming the eu continues to exist).

    Ireland would pay a very heavy price for access to the single market. A punt nua would be very weak. Our interest rates would rocket. Our whole business model would be turned on its head.

    What would be gain? Control of our border, exclusive access to Irish fishing waters, tax freedom, and sovereignty.

    I think it highly unlikely France would ever leave the EU but if it did I think the EU would collapse.

    France is a key founder member, I simply cannot imagine the EU surviving without it.

    Ireland already meets the requirements for access to the Single Market.
    Why would it have to pay a heavy price?

    Yeah. Pffft. Control of our border. tax freedom, fishing territories regained.....and sovereignty. I mean what would be gained??

    It think there is a higher chance of France leaving than Le Pen winning.
    Le Pen will face a massive media onslaught in the coming months.
    You dont have to be a Le Pen voter to support Frexit though. Many far left groups also want Frexit.
