Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So yeah. Couple of days ago I glanced at an OpEd headline at Irish Times or RTE (I forget; distinction without difference?) demanding to know what the EU will demand from IE in exchange for cooperation.

Yes, I did not read it. The premise alone being as preposterous as it is a comical testament to the parochial affectation pronounced, "The Brexit Veto: How and why Ireland raised the stakes" (Nov 2017).

One would hope the writer launched this polemic with a survey of the IE/NE corp tax competition to defeat EU public equity, but I will settle for a "nuanced" demonstation of quid pro EU.
EU approves state aid for Government's National Broadband Plan
I will provisionally label this prerogative "enlargement" of the wee nation-state.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
