If you think we're the arsehole of the EU, we'd be less than that outside it In my opinion, at best we'd be the tories little afterthought. All those multi-national jobs Pharma & High tech, would be long gone. There arent enough fish in the sea for us all to be fishermen.
It's not the EUs fault that successive Irish Governments have failed to invest in our Water infrastructure. Or that we had each county council looking after water in their county, meaning we had far too many people involved all minding their own little patch rather than a nationwide strategy.All those people are unsackable and are guaranteed a nice juicy pension of course.
