Well, perhaps with the solid friends Ireland has in Brussels, perhaps we could convince them to join in this unilaterally. Or we’ll get a slap on the wrist, or worse.
Did Coveney and Varadkar see this coming – where’s the SCU, or the Special Advisors, or whatever they’re called now to give the media direction ?

    @wattsed: If the EU joined this, every American company in Europe and every European company in the US would be breaking US federal law by taking part. The current trade issues between the US and the EU would only be minor in relation to that.

    And Trump would probably slap a 20% on cars the day after, just for good measure. Francis Black is better off going back singing…

    You say that as if we can’t slap tariffs on things coming from the US which we already have.
