    So that means there will be two economies, the legal documented one and the black one. Who would have thought that the Italian way of life would come out tops courtesy of Brussels?

    It's just like setting before during after a war where between two opposing parties there is a third parties that will connect the two,like a third man or a private company enterprise etc l,who where they will find to fill those who can connect the Ireland,UK,EU in the back stop ?..legally and others etc.

    In principle, yes, a very good idea. Two snags, one temporary, one permanent:

    1. Trump has declared his aim to stop free trade, and the UK is no exception to his malarkey.

    2. Unlike Europe, the USA is not exactly on our doorstep, so the trade in perishables (and therefore the hit to our farmers) - while by no means impossible, would be much more difficult. Add to that the "just in time" aspect of manufacturing - e.g. motors - and you begin to see that even the USA, despite our frienddhip, is only a second best to Europe.

    After reading this article ,I'm having some thought either Germany have many researchers institution inline with there work or industries or they are more connected to France that after world war, They  France and Germany became the two main members of EU,and even EU is at the door step it takes several attempts to convince them to make UK a member in the seventies maybe that is intentional to catch up with UK and USA after the war,after WWII the UK start shrinking maybe underneath they like unified EU but not along with English speaking countries even UK does not want to became EU members then they can pass a law or agreement that UK is welcome in a way that what I interpret in the passing of some law line right of Abode that former colonies can apply to go to UK etc,...,because they should or could  make UK a automatic member and gets its coal to UK instead of France.

    In trupms time all is in equivalent of cash just an opinion ,there is a free movement in the US in the past they can make a free movement in exchange for trade or its equivalent ,Trump wants all process is paid like any other application for job,work,residence and citezenship, USA does not want a free ride it is always wants cash or money or and agreement.  And maybe the Federal reserve see Euro as a treat any currency or anything treathens a dollar or Federal reserve is a enemy if the state same goes maybe to the pound?. It is Trade and number one reserve currency or anything that make a dollar still number one?. Just a speculation  I dont mind spending money or USA capping the number of migrant going to the US they been doing that ever since,there is  always a long cue outside US embassies, Trump is Capitalising access to America 


    The things that UK have is long history of law, government,currency pound,how to make use of it?. Germany have money or EU they can finance there project?. Or Germany can earn money by selling loads of car to EU countries and taking over there industries ,that a payment for a car is like a deposit for a house no needs for land ,construction material etc just a car will do to sustain income for commercial base industries like Germany?.  What will happen if UK buy only state own PPP car UK owned car manufacturing company,nearly happen to DMC?  After Thatcher or decline of Industries in UK it emerges a stock market boom property boom in london,now between Industries and Stock market what is next for UK transport,communication and security hub between US and EU copper and fiber underwater cable,bad weather can hinder communication, connectivity from stocks or information every time or delay is money like the movie sting?

    Josie, You forgot the phillipines  (sp) unlike the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, they were once a USA Possession, after the Spanish American War. (1898). :rolleyes:

    Yes the USA did colonized the PH. also Spain  colonized PH but US cap or restrict the number of Filipinos entering the US, In Spain becoming a citizen coming from colonized countries like the Phillipines requires two years to be a citizen other countries like Ireland takes five to ten years to become  a citizen,why not lessen the number of years require to became a US  citizen coming from first world English speaking countries?.  UK have a right of Abode,Spain have two years,US is the New land, if other former colonies will apply to live in those countries the physical space for migrant is small if the destination is EU,became a UK citizen then go to US if they like and apply for US citizenship other way to go to US or EU,I'm more like thinking VATICAN can make all Christian nation under one citezendhip and freedom of movement and Trade Italy and UK and Russia orthodox can tag along?. Just a thought it did happen in the past during maybe  When Victoria times etc or King Phillip of Spain or Mary and Philip?.

    Josie, That is a excellent idea...free trade and movement between The USA and the United Kingdom. Our countries have been friends since 1814, it seems to me it would be a good fit.

    Maybe they can form English speaking countries they can   include Canada and Australia,free trade and free movement,I'm more into citenship process between English speaking countries,each countries varies wonder if US can pass a law that Ireland who's population is around 5 million they can make it automatic  US citizen same as the UK vise versa among English speaking countries for they are more than friends they came from northern dwellers English speaking,Anglo Saxon,Celtic  more or less they are all relatives,in going to US they can tag along Greenland to connect USA to EU?. 

  5. History back stop,back door,

    Wonder if US can make Irish very easy access to have citizenship or somekind of arrangement between UK Ireland and US can work and live together like what they are doing in EU freedom of Movement and trad

  7. Brexit,this article have other  idea or ways on the ongoing Brexit process,,.        His name is Scott Packer other individual who thought of this or near to it is Farage (for pun the  autocorrect of Farage is ?.).  While Sinn Fien is looking for unification., after Trump made some announcement about exiting avarns treaty with Russia,he did left Europe by its own or Europe should build its army or incase of war ?. Where the army under the coat of arms of UK will gets its fund?.  Or the arm forces of Ireland is independent and can still fight for the crown or UK ?.  https://www-joe-ie.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.joe.ie/amp/news/brexit-petition-ireland-rejoin-united-kingdom-657110?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.joe.ie%2Fnews%2Fbrexit-petition-ireland-rejoin-united-kingdom-657110

    Assuming remaining in the EU could be the option adopted I wonder how the UK will work with the EU after all the angst caused by the referendum. If UK stays will it be under the existing arrangements or will the UK have to adopt the Euro for example? I also wonder how the. UK can live with its self after being beaten into submission by a bunch of Europeans whose only aim is diminish the UK..

    True colours even UK have a mistake voting for Brexit or it is destiny why EU will use all its power to make Brexit and renogotiation harder for UK  they should be more welcoming or UK and EU is at war since in the beginning EU and Euro is a treat to UK pounfs  or  US dollar why not have coins that is Euro that is same as coat of arms of UK when UK have France and Spain or each country have a currency by itself but also one currency for EU it would be a waste if UK pound will be replace by Euro where will be the center or central bank of EU or Euro when EU started to trade outside EU or create a currency like the East India currency just a thought even US dollar will have a second thought for reserve currency Federal shutdown for months?. Open port airport for Gibraltar all other countries can trade to UK in pounds they all seems to left UK by its own even they are saying UK wants to be alone by itself if they really want UK they can offer a lot since uniting EU is there aim?.  

  9. Just posting sometimes I admire Tories saw some news that they are taking labour programs plan and implementing it even there are very fierce opposition with in the conservative still united and implement the program during  Cameroon times, it feels like Theressa have this deal or no deal WTO thinking that Tories have some kind of algorithm program for this kind of scenario that they all figured out what to do and protect there parties and interest against the labour either way the most worst scenario is no deal WTO they can get everything and still in power Theressa still have the confidence in seat or Tories is quite united or solid?. Or the reverse or labour is same as the Tories?. Algorithm have no emotion it's all base line numbers and profit?.  If WTO no deal EU will use to cordon the UK trade etc the biggest trade partner of Ireland or its product goes to the UK ?. While German products goes all to EU   and why Germany didn't make any car factory city in Ireland or advance medical school tech research here it is mostly US ?. 

  10. Just posting I have seen some video that the minister of UK have a hard time entering the EU market don't know the story about it but other reason some article saying is that France and Germany some what merge and instead of getting coal from UK they get it from France and Germany sold  there product,situation coal - oil in the seventies the decimalisation and international reserve the creation of Euro the lost  of production sector of UK and its market or its trade although they have right to abode wonder if they will equate it to trade or residence and citizenship or freedom of movement just like what EU are doing maybe it should be France and UK so that the coat of arms are four or five if Spain wants and its former colonies to freedom of movement since it only needed two years for be a Spanish citizen if a person came from Philippines or make it easier for UK  Canada Australia to became US citizen vise versa every languages have different personality English speaking just a thought.  https://www-thejournal-ie.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.thejournal.ie/rockall-explainer-3333490-Apr2017/?amp=1&amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQCCAE=#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s

  11. Free port island port maybe there are more nearer just like some contested land between France and Germany but in a shore between North and Republic so they can trade in free port area just a thought https://www-thejournal-ie.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.thejournal.ie/rockall-explainer-3333490-Apr2017/?amp=1&amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQCCAE=#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s

    Are you some kind of Russian troll bot? I am struggling to make sense of any of your previous posts. I had seen people saying Bots have been posting on Brexit stuff on Youtube but i was sceptical but now i am not sure. 

    Thanks Rob, no worries Uktsu it is not the first time it happens due to comma and punctuation and other reason such us not finishing the sentence properly or every line is like a thought hang in the air like three dots waiting to be finished the core of the four post is that UK is the three horn in revelation comprise of Scotland England. and Ireland,  if they UK and others are not short or lacking in writters inspired to be prophetic or manifestation of eye or forseer in revelation it means they are choosen and in God's favor any harm done in God's own will have consequences someone have to say it  to inform all parties so all we know even UK is in disadvantage position now God can move anything on its right time UK have long history of resilience how much more if there action is a fulfilment on what is written I will wait for proof if it will happen and I  hope they will weather this one and will not cost alot or in other words bad weather comes to those who touch them just a thought.

    The union should be solid, but isn't. Scotland wants a different outcome to England.....and the Northern Irish question - complex beyond belief.  

    Center of the world those who are into reference verse every time what's is happening on the UK they have reference verse how UK will solve it many might see three can be united as one in this obscure situation just a thought.  By history it have a high chances they will solve it I will just wait and see if it unfold?. 

  15. UK more than Europe, Ireland Scotland England all independent but United in UK and part of EU that can trade globally by its own and with EU regulation policy etc it needed three Ireland Scotland and England to be one just a thought in reality how UK will be one of the major leaders that can say no no yes yes to EU at least the center core of coat of arms of UK other commonwealth nation will follow?.  EU and commonwealth countries through UK in trade etc.
