BARNIER: BRITAIN NEEDS TO ABIDE BY EU STANDARDS ON THE ENVIRONMENT, WORKERS’ RIGHTS, TAX AND STATE AID IF BRITAIN WANTS A DEAL

Ireland is one of Europe’s fastest growing markets and there’s concern that a so-called”bare bones Brexit deal” could significantly disrupt Irish sector.

Staunton said:”There is still some hope in Dublin that’s misplaced that Boris doesn’t mean his hardline approach.

“There’s a belief that when the reality of the discussions sinks in, he is going to undermine like he did over the backstop.”

“But the reason we have the backstop is that the rest of the UK can diverge in the EU.

“I don’t think people in Dublin have digested the probable consequences of Boris Johnson’s Brexit.

“He will either go for a bare bones trade agreement, or he will visit a no deal WTO arrangement, which would be even more disruptive.

“The financial impact will be severe. Britain is still an integral market, particularly for agriculture and so forth.

“It’s a future that Dublin has to handle. Once the Government gets in and talks start in Brussels, the Irish Government will not get a particularly warm welcome in Brussels when its looking for concessions for Britain to facilitate things in Ireland.

“The EU will remind Ireland that it showed a lot of solidarity during the first phase of negotiations, much more than they had expected.

“And now its time for Ireland to show its solidarity.”

BORIS IS PREPARED TO WALK WITHOUT A DEAL… “the UK will flourish" regardless.

Earlier this week, Boris Johnson has set out his vision for a trade deal with the EU, saying there is”no need” for the UK to follow Brussels’ rules.

The Prime Minister called for a Canada-style free trade deal, saying the UK would return to the Withdrawal Agreement if such a deal was not reached.

But the EU’s Michel Barnier said its”ambitious” trade bargain provide required a”level playing field”.
