    Lets compare it to the much longer discussed but as yet to be agreed EU/NZ descriptions.

    It seems the Irish are worried

      I never found hardly any British lamb or mutton in UK supermarkets even when the UK was part of the EU. It all seemed to be NZ and Australian meat.

      So this is not an area I am expecting to see much change before or after the split?

          Doesn't really affect the consumer, this is more a problem for farmers. Interestingly the tabloid press who used to get incredibly emotional about farmers and fisherman now seem to be quite happy to see them disappear.

            Clearly, this is designed to be a starter and trade will grow as the two countries continue to discuss and identify areas of comparative advantage.

              in terms of standards, I still believe EU standards is the best you could do.

                  Oy... considering how many of the gen X are retiring in the next few years, you are not very kind with the people that will be paying your pension.
                  I understand Benedorm is off table for now but you shouldn't take your frustration on the 'foreiners'... it was your own government that did this.

                  And it could have been a lot worse, you all people could have been digging ditches and doing all the work. Imagine that. Flipping hell all that work even raises the hair on my back even thinking of it.

                    Digging ditches isn't that hard now breaking rocks & concreting that is hard... You whipper snappers would never manage it!
