Irish are now the richest in Europe

Post by zzzz »

...welll, if you exclude Luxembourg which isn't really a country.

Image

That's just under Euro16 Billion as a net contribution. Pretty special for a tiny country.

You lads are now each paying just under twice as much as Germans, and about three times as much as the French.




If anyone's ineterested, on the same allocation, it looks like the UK would have been on the hook for a net Euro 80 billion contribution if we had stayed in.

A noble sentiment Which must be why you declined to join Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, and Sweden in opposing the Budget- even though it meant walking away from the rebate they secured.

For the period 2021-2027, lump-sum corrections will reduce the annual GNI-based contribution of Denmark, the Netherlands, Austria and Sweden, and in the context of the support for the recovery and resilience, as well as of Germany. The Member States concerned shall benefit from a gross reduction in their annual Gross National Income-based contribution in 2020 prices of:

Denmark: EUR 377 million;
Germany: EUR 3 671 million;
The Netherlands: EUR 1 921 million;
Austria: EUR 565 million;
Sweden: EUR 1 069 million.

We got EU structural funds for years to build us up so we would exactly be in this position. A position to contribute.

We are also nowhere close to the largest per capita contributor. Thats the Dutch by some distance. The above graph is the relative change on the previous budget cycle.

Unsurprised a Brit doesn't get this. Not much of a history of mutual prosperity building more of a pillage mentality.

The Irish will piss away any excess because that's what they do. Jolly decent of them to chip in so much to help out the Euro peasant economies mind, they'll need a lot more when the recession starts to bite. I'm told the cost of a donkey has fallen through the floor, worrying times ahead...

Is the Irish contribution based on GDP or GNP?

If the former, they have been stitched up good and proper.

I think it's GNI but would be interesting to know. Of all the EU countires, Ireland would probably have the best case for arguing their calculation should be adjusted downwards for a rebate. Dont seem to have tried.

Yeah - I think you're overselling your popularity there.

So you have point. Which isn't your point, but is a point. And I need to address it. But no-ones allowed to know what it is?

God what an irredeemable and pointless process Brexit is.
Just so stupid, nothing about it is sensible.

Expect plenty of deflection from the Brexiters with the shit that's coming their way. And they know it.

We're doing pretty well though so we can take any scrutiny as a compliment

Well no, what Brexit folk know is that they have regained their sovereignty, self respect and pride.
Irish kidders on the other hand have traded all of this just to be a pimple on Germany's arse.
Sad end really although some irony given that decent Irish folk once fought to own these things.
Well nice chatting but I'm afraid there is remoaning filth to deal with elsewhere, bleating about the Portuguese air corridor would you believe?

I worry about the Irish when it comes to money.

As the great Michael Lewis famously observed in Vanity Fair:
Left alone in a dark room with a pile of money, the Irish decided what they really wanted to do with it was to buy Ireland. From one another.
Be sensible this time, lads.
