    Quick! Catch it before it disappears! Priti Patel and ultra-#Brexiters reckon on an imminent Irish famine
    Ireland faces food shortages and will suffer a bigger economic hit than Britain in the event of a no-deal Brexit, according to leaked government papers.

    Cabinet ministers and Brexiteers have seized on the papers, obtained by The Times, as they believe their contents could let Theresa May put pressure on Ireland to drop the “backstop”.

    The papers say the UK leaving the EU without a deal would cause a 7 per cent drop in GDP for Ireland, compared to a 5 per cent drop in Britain. This is because Ireland is “a more open economy than the UK, accounting for 60 per cent of GDP comprised of goods imports and exports, as opposed to 40 per cent for Great Britain”.
    Prepare yourselves for a subsistence diet of cheap prime steak, ham and bacon, Mitchelstown dairy produce, soda bead, Guinness and Jameson Redbreast.

    And didn't the last Economic War go well, huh?

    He used to remind us - in every single post - that he was a proud Oirish Republican.
    Now, he's a James Connolly man.

    It only gets better.
    In fairness he is working his way through the Irish history Wikipedia article.
    Wait till he gets to Parnell!

    Also our government published a report last February telling us about the GDP drop. It's not a surprise.

    The expresses line seems to be the UK have a trade surplus with ireland so therefore we will suffer yet the same doesn't apply with the massive surplus the EU has with the (very food dependent) UK.
    Its a joke story from a joke newspaper.
    Complacent horseshít. We had near food riots earlier this year after a bit of snow.

    In fact hard Brexit requires careful planning.

    Anglophobic sneering isn't a plan. That I can tell you.

    Anyone who voted Leave in the likes of the North of England and who suffered under Thatcher are welcome to her...

    The thin veneer in the 26 Counties looked very thin in those days .

    The Peter Casey Vote also showed that the thin veneer in the 26 Counties is very fragile . The mainstream media went in to melt down in little over a week .

    Tbf, things are so bad in some areas of Northern England are so bad that leaving or remaining will make very little difference to their standard of living.

    These unfortunates are precisely the ones that were targeted by the uber-rich hedge fund brexiteers with their romantic nationalism during the leave campaign.

    Have you managed to figure out the fact that the North is not in Britain yet ?

    You forgot to remind us that you're an Oirish Republican in that post.
