Today in the Irish Times, Harry McGee explores the possibility of an Eirexit in the near future based on the continued growth of the Irish economy. Currently, the majority of Ireland's foreign trade is with other English speaking countries and the EU has threatened to add heavy tariffs to trade goods with the United Kingdom as a punishment for their Brexit. In addition, Taoisech Kenny, managed to beat out both Germany and Britain, in discussing future economic policies with president elect Trump this past Wednesday. So do y'all believe that an Eirexit is all but inevitable?

This is an interesting topic. Sorry it has taken me so long to jump in.

I have a good friend who lives in the Republic. Because of recent events. he believes that the uniting of the North and South is inevitable. Therer has been a lot of talk lately with a "hard" or a "soft" Brexit, and how that is handled may be the turing point. On top of that, the recent collapse of the Northern Ireland government could give impetus to unification talks. Who knows?

I would personally have a tough time with way the EU runs things in certain countries. The tax issue with Apple is a fairly recent example. It may just be my nationalistic bent.

It will be interesting to see how things play out with Scotland also. I wonder how quickly a separation vote might come up again?

I think that Ireland will be very likely to follow the United Kingdom out of the European Union, if the United Kingdom ends up doing well and is prosperous. As far as trade goes, Ireland and the United Kingdom are dependent on each other and a better trade agreement would likely be reached by direct negotiations between the two nations.

I am in general opposed to organization such as the EU, UN, and WTO as they end up with policies and regulations that are direct assaults on individuals, liberty, and freedom. I am also not a fan of any government for the same reasons. As far as the Apple situation goes, I think Ireland is going to end up giving the EU the middle finger on that one as it would be very destructive to their economy and people.

The Scotland issue, is more difficult to judge, because what is good for the Scottish people, is not mutually inclusive with what is good for the English. I think another succession vote is likely in the next several years.
