Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

You couldn't make it up could you ? so much for british jobs for british workers.

The Guardian - British exporters told to move to the EU to avoid Brexit costs

BBC News - UK firms told to set up in EU to avoid trade disruption

For CNN fans
Probably fake news

Rotting fish, lost business and piles of red tape. The reality of Brexit hits Britain

Quote:
The region where food shortages could fast become a real issue is Northern Ireland, where images of empty supermarket shelves have circulated on social media.
Due to the unique position of Northern Ireland, it has split with the rest of the United Kingdom and remained inside the EU single market, making it a lot harder to import food from Great Britain.
Simon Coveney, Ireland's foreign affairs minister, said that images showing empty shelves in Northern Irish supermarkets were "clearly a Brexit issue" and "part of the reality" of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.

Why don’t they just import the food from Ireland? Probably cheaper since it doesn’t need a sea crossing.

Well you know people have their food likes and dislikes and are used to British foods.

There has been unrestricted access to Ireland for a very long time, if it had been cheaper the trade would have developed already.....

In fact the cost of living is between 15% - 20% high than the UK and average GDP per capita is about 40% higher. Ireland is not a cheap country. NI is to Ireland, what France/Germany is to Switzerland when it comes to shopping.
