I never quite understood the huge power you have in the EU.

Neale Richmond says Ireland has huge power. I did not know that.

Not sure what point you’re making?

There was more coherence in that debate (on both sides) than the UK has managed for the last 3 years .....

And it wasn’t happening on the Irish equivalent of Question Time either .... that was daytime TV - the equivalent of Pebble fecking Mill

If your point was that you still think that Ireland is going to be left high and dry by the EU, well god bless you

I can certainly see why the Irish are so enthusiastic about the EU when Varadkar is as powerful as Macron or Merkel

I thought it was a good debate.

Obviously, given Ireland's power, the EU cannot leave Ireland high and dry.

I guess Orban can make the same power claims on the basis.

So it should impress you

Enda Kenny basically crafted the EU negotiating principles re: the Irish border when the brexit loons were still hungover after the post referendum knees up in wetherspoons ..... and it’s been the rock upon which the Tory party has been tearing itself asunder ever since

Michael Collins could only ever dream of inflicting such damage on the English establishment :lol: :lol:

They're coming after your Google billions by way of qualified majority ;)

In theory, or in practice?

This debate seems to hinge on whether one thinks Ireland is a rule-taker or a rule-maker inside the EU. Neale Richmond genuinely believes Ireland are a rule-maker. Bassett is of the view the German Chancellor and French President decide.

Ray actually makes a decent case for a Norway-style deal for Ireland, retain the benefits of Single Market while not having to increase budget contributions, endure changes to the CAP and increased defence spending etc.

I suppose it's a moot point at present given as the presenter says the Irish population is hugely in favour of EU membership but perhaps worth bearing in mind for the future.
