    I would think the last thing Eire want at the moment (the Govt at least) with Brexit about to whack their economy is having to take the cost of assimilating NI.

    That poll shows there is some elasticity in that direction to, with being in favour of a unified Ireland at 36%, dropping to 31% if it meant paying more tax.

    The Irish are not daft. Not like us.

    The telegraph has really done a complete 180*. I used to read it a lot and respect it. It was right-leaning, but sensible conservative opinions regarding economics that I could at least relate to and at one time even agreed to . Now it is now better than the USn or Daily Mail, except less boobs so is entirely pointless! Their headlines and stories are a complete joke.

    So the Tories have taken up Farage's offer of an election pact I see.

    Just watched Andrew Neil destroy Farage and Kwazi Kwarteng. Neil did not let them bluster and BS. Farage lost for words a couple of times. Political interviewing as it should be held.

    That's nothing to bother about, it's probably just about the expected number of deaths from a no deal, nothing to bother your little mind...

    Here is an EU Q&A document about no deal brexit - https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/contingency-qanda_en.pdf

    40 questions and answers.

    The UK Gov gives 20 statements, 1 redacted and those that are left seem to be lacking some substance I feel.

    Presumably something worse than "low income groups will be disproportionately affected by any price rises in food and fuel."

    I'm going to guess deaths.

    Seeing the way things are going, you're probably right! I wouldn't trust a word Boris says.

    Found this interesting, but who knows, remainers are liars so you can't trust a word they say anyway.

    "Fifty four per cent agree the referendum result should be respected, the survey by ComRes found. Just 25 per cent disagreed and 21 per cent didn’t know. Of those who voted Remain in 2016, more than a third (35 per cent) said they now wanted Brexit delivered."

    I honestly don’t know why Kwarteng keeps getting put up in front of the media, he’s a complete shambles most of the time.

    That document is nothing earth shattering that we never knew anyway.
