No deal Brexit shock may be too much for Ireland to bear says report! (4k)

An official briefing paper for the Irish government says that, on top of the pandemic, a second shock from a hard Brexit might overwhelm the Republic’s economy.

The Irish Times says that a government briefing document has warned the Irish foreign affairs minister, Simon Coveney, that:

“Households and businesses may not have the capacity to withstand a second economic shock as a result of a hard Brexit at the end of the year, …”

And the document itself says that the Republic of Ireland is :

“…facing into Brexit from a fundamentally different economic starting point than for a no-deal Brexit in 2019.”

And that, taking the Coronavirus pandemic into account:

“…the capacity of households and businesses to manage a second economic shock will be more limited …”

Coveney has been warned that protecting the €85 billion trade link with the UK is vital to Ireland’s economic recovery.

It is predominantly aimed at UK politics from a centre right perspective, but delves into all areas of global politics where appropriate. It also aims to promote the concept of an independent and sovereign UK taking its own place in the world, post Brexit.


  1. The Scottish Nationalist Government Party in Scotland fully support Catalan Independence from Spain. The Catalan Nationalist Independence Party in Spain support Scotland in their quest for Independence from the United kingdom in 2021.
    The Catalan Nationalist Independence Party in Spain would offer a joint Catalan and Scotland
    Independence bid which would strengthen their bid for Independence from the United kingdom. The only drawback at present is we are probably in The worst recession of the 21st Century which Worldwide Economists predict will last for at least Six Years.

  2. Keep 'em Salty Jeff…. Still growing mate… Time to join the Constitutional party The English Democrats… ( not to be confused or compared to tbe American Commie Dem's ).. The English Dem's are a Law and order English Civil Rights and English Constitutional party… Which opposess the political swamp that are the 'British '.. political system that rapes the Civil rights of ALL UK citizens and the National resources.. Supported by such as treasonous May back stabber Major and tbr Fabian Communists and wronguns Blair. Brown and the swamp… We need an English representation in our own Parliament… They-ve already lost us our resources.. Heavy industry.. NHS. North Sea Oil.. Judicial Rights by using Admiralty jurisdiction rather than Common LAW Jurisdiction wherebye All are equal in the eyes of the LAW. Regardless of tenure.. position or wealth.. King or Pauper…. And the wholesale incorporating of our prison systems for the wealth profiteering of their owners.. End the Racketeering if such as the propagandising and brainwashing BBC.. and MSM.. And freedome of speach returned without this pseudo political correctness… Which is designed to cause social dismantling along with English traditional life and socialising.. upon which the constitutions of the free Western world are based from Love if GOD and the Gospel which also they are trying to rid us the right to….
    This is England.. The England of Daniel Defoe
    Where men and women are born free… and have Civil Rights ( 1688/89. )written for our benefit against tyranny by our forefathers in perpetuity…. That is the base of our Constitutional rights and cannot be changed.. Ever.
    Cheers Jeff… GOD bless you mate. In Jesus blessed and mighty name. Amen.

  3. Bye bye Ireland ….. go play with your eu masters because the UK doesn't need you. Oh .. and you can stick your beef and kerrygold where the sun doesn't shine as far as we are concerned.

  4. I would like to see a report on how the southern Irish fishing fleet and, dock vessels from other EU countries have increased so much when considering the Irish fishing fleet was in decline and out dated on till one year ago. But now their is a lot more Irish fleet vessels brand-new / newly registered foreign boats with Irish fishing quotas

  5. Ireland's exports to the US are five times that of it's UK trade & is the only EU member with which the UK has a substantial trade surplus. Ireland buys more UK goods and services than all the BRIC countries combined….

  6. N.I.: A substantial majority voted to, 'REMAIN'.
    It would be sensible for N.I. to re-unite with Eire.
    Those who wont stomach that? Buy them Out!
    (A substantial number wish for a Re-Union for historical reasons!)

  7. I won't rehash the data here. But the impact of a no-deal Brexit will hit only some specific sectors and locations in the Irish Republic. The big picture (macro-economic) will not be severe. A gulp and a hiccup for a year or two.
