Merkel & the EU will have been advised, by the UK remain lobby, that the UK won't abandon Northern Ireland, so the plan has always been that the entire UK remains in the EU.

Northern Ireland is just a conman's distraction technique.

Absolutely. The EU see NI as the big stick that they can whack us with.
If and when we leave without a deal as it seems more likely and without the £39bn being paid the EU will have to get themselves out of a massive financial black hole.

So now Merkel is saying. effectively, that Northern Ireland must remain part of the EU if the rest of the UK wishes to leave. Sheer, naked aggression. If we are gutless enough to give into her demand, she is well on the way to achieving - by different methods - what Germany failed. twice, to achieve. at the cost of millions of premature lives, by force of arms - domination of Europe

That is exactly what I have been saying for the past few years. Germany tried to take over Europe by force twice in the past, they then saw the light of wanting to control Europe by political and financial means.
It's in their blood that they must dominate.
France is happy to go along with it (as they did twice before) because their farmers were being given a lifeline to support their peasant way of farming - much like the Scots with their crofts. The eastern block countries see the EU as a cash cow.

It seems to me that the UK has always been treated badly by the EU but it has never refused our payments into it - they even had the nerve to keep asking us to pay more in as other countries needed it. 

Breakdown of France’s finances with the EU in 2017: Total EU spending in France:       € 13.505 billion. French contribution to the EU budget: € 16.234 billion. 

In 2017 the UK government paid £13 billion to the EU budget, and EU spending on the UK was forecast to be £4 billion.

The EU depends on Germany France & the UK.

If any one of those three pulls out, the EU will effectively go bust.

Not overnight, but within a few years & it won't be called going bust, it'll be called restructuring.
Make every day count. Every day is precious.
