    How about we do a merger with the Republic of Ireland?

    I was just having a think re Brexit. The problem with the Irish border could be elegantly resolved if the UK merged with the Republic of Ireland to become one sovereign nation, outside of the EU.
    Called the UKIB (the United Kingdom of Ireland and Britain), the seat of government would move from London to Dublin, leaving London to take over most business and financial work. Irish MPs would only be distinguished from British MPs by virtue of the location of their constituencies, not their nationality. The five constituent countries (northern Ireland, southern Ireland, England, Scotland, wales) would remain in place.
    It would respect the good Friday agreement by not having a border between northern Ireland or the UK or southern Ireland. It would satisfy the desire by Sinn Fein and the Catholics for a united Ireland. It would keep the DUP happy, because they would remain in the same country as their beloved Great Britain.

    At the moment, around 40% of Irish people are in favour of leaving the EU, according to the last poll in 2012 I think, and that figure is rising.

    Makes sense don't you think? You heard it first here. Init?

    Fake news and a BNP position rolled Into a single post by a Brexiteer. Top notch cretinism from GJABS.

        Ireland is neither of those.

            Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

                    At least one of those is a nuclear power, and the rest are members of NATO.
