To be fair Dre and dac as well.

From the IT :
Bupa said to plan Brexit move to Dublin
UK-based healthcare group considering moving its European health insurance hub from UK to Ireland in order to write EU contracts after Brexit
6 minutes ago Updated: 3 minutes ago
Joe Brennan




UK-based healthcare group Bupa is reportedly preparing to move its European health insurance business to Dublin as it prepares for Brexit, more than a decade after the group quit the Irish health coverage market.
Channel 4 News has reported that the Bupa plan comes as the group deals with the prospect of not being allowed to write EU contracts from the UK after the Brexit.

Why would the EU fork out costs for part of the UK? Who does the Canada EU joint court respond to? We already have unique employment law in NI from the rest of the UK and employment is devolved to Stormont.

I'm not sure you've grasped what the Canadian / EU trade court is for. You're conflating things which I'm not asking about.

The people in the EU customs area would have to work to EU laws. Everything would fall under the ECJ, I'm not talking about "unique" anything. If these rules cost jobs or impose costs to UK state offices then who pays ?

Why on earth should somewhere funded by, the phntaxed by, protected by the British state hand that power to a foreign body. It's total rubbish.

Oh good, are we back to "Brexit will be as bad as a war in which 20,000,000 died and many of the UK's cities were reduced to rubble, but that's OK because we're gritty"? I always find that line of argument so convincing. Where's Mick Mannock to tell our Brexiteers off for being obsessed with the war?

The UK government, being made up of people who had actually experienced the horrors of industrial European war, did their level best to avoid it in the years leading up to 1939; and in the end were forced to undertake it to try and avoid Europe, including the UK, being dominated by one of the most evil regimes that ever ruled. Whatever your arguments for us voluntarily undertaking Brexit I suspect they don't quite match up to those, so probably don't really justify allusions to that sacrifice.

If you don't think Brexit will mean any privations you don't need "we coped with the war" as a reassurance because there will be nothing to cope with.

If you rather suspect that there might be some privations to cope with, you need to persuade people that those privations are worth enduring, not just that they can endure them. Most of us can endure lots of things for a good reason; I get a bit tetchy about trivial stuff like my train being delayed when it seems to be for no good reason.

Really?
How would EU forces be greeted in Northern Ireland I wonder. The UK had decades of trouble trying to manage it with 50% support and one of the worlds top militaries so I wonder how a few tin pot militaries from Europe and no local support would do.

This brilliant Brexit thing you've been defending to the hilt sounds absolutely shit.

I'm sure we'll eventually swallow the shit sandwich you've served us.

But it's the poor fuckers who didn't vote for this who will have to sort it rather than selfish "I'm alright jack" baby boomers who will slope off mumbling "something, something, something May's a remainer"

I'd love a BH in the middle of July, who wouldn't ?

EDIT

That's pretty good going by the way.

The Oireachtas report is 452 pages long, and the KLC Consulting one some 84 pages.

That's pretty good reading and digestion of ideas and models for under 15 minutes.

The Canadian one looks like his MSc thesis for some Poly. The Irish one is from the same people who gave us 28% growth or something a couple of years back. Excuse me if I think you may have underestimated the impact of taking on 2 million people, mostly all state dependent, be it work or benefits, 1 million of which don't want to be there and the security operation that goes with it.

What would you do about the 12th of July, would it be a national holiday north and south or would you tell the 1 million people to stick their history as there is a new sheriff in town,
Well there you have it. The Irish are too thick to run their own affairs. Not much has changed in 100 years.

You do know that means nothing in the real world. Remember the fearsome Republican Guard in Iraq that the news kept going on about as the troops when in and all the stats. Waste of time in the end.

You're scared of a story about something that "could" happen, and if it does it will sort the issues being faced. ?

Blimey you'd have loved my Nan and her living through the war stories during the blitz.
This brilliant Brexit thing you've been defending to the hilt sounds absolutely shit.

I'm sure we'll eventually swallow the shit sandwich you've served us.

But it's the poor fuckers who didn't vote for this who will have to sort it rather than selfish "I'm alright jack" baby boomers who will slope off mumbling "something, something, something May's a remainer"
I voted remain. I defend the democratic decision and the importance of democracy. Just think those poor f uckers could have voted for a remain party last year, they flocked instead to an old brexiteer who promised them a bit of free stuff, I've so little sympathy.

But your view to austerity alone says you don't actually care for their burden.

But think of the stories
I have visions of the "war" films we'll be watching in 50 years time

Saving Privatised Ryan
A Boris Bridge Too Far
The C*nt in the Pinstriped Suit
Where Chlorinated Chickens Dare
The Shit Red Line

But Egypt is 12th and Thailand is 16th. Both lunch time jobs.

Well not anymore, that's rather the point being made.
