EU leaders at their summit at the weekend I must discuss a statement that if Ireland reunited, her sever will automatically get EU membership.
It is not excluded that the European leaders are prepared to accept a United Ireland in a Declaration that will create the conditions for the North again, quickly joined the European Union. At its meeting on the issue of withdrawal of Britain from the EU, which will be held on Saturday, the heads of 27 member countries of the Union shall discuss the text of the statement which States that in the case of the reunification of Ireland, its North will automatically become part of the European Union.
The wording in the text of the Declaration is a great victory for the Irish government, which insisted on the inclusion of the “regulations on the GDR”, referring to the entry of East Germany into the European community after the fall of the Berlin wall. This Declaration will certainly cause concerns that Breaksit could trigger a collapse of the United Kingdom, although the majority in Northern Ireland against the merger.
European diplomats are preparing for a fierce response from the UK, mindful of the angry headlines in the tabloids after the emergence of various predictions about the status of Gibraltar. At the insistence of the Madrid Union agreed that the Spanish government should have the right to exclude Gibraltar from any trade agreements between the EU and the United Kingdom if Spain would not be satisfied with the status of this territory.
Position about Ireland came from the Belfast peace agreement, which States that the North and South of Ireland have the right to Association in the case, if it will agree a majority in Northern Ireland. Irish Prime Minister ENDA Kenny said that the North of Ireland it is very important to the possibility of easier entry into the EU in the event of the reunification of the island.
Because of Brexia the issue of a United Ireland again came to the fore, however, this idea does not enjoy much support in the community. In Northern Ireland, where recently held a public opinion poll, a clear majority of 62 per cent in favour of their territory remained part of the United Kingdom, and only 22% support the unification of Ireland. Voters in the South also belong to the reunification of skepticism, especially if it will have to pay.
Answering the question about how they will vote in the referendum, if the unification of Ireland will cost nine billion dollars a year, only a third of Irish respondents said they would support a reunion. A third vote against, and another third are undecided with the decision.
“The position of the GDR” is contained in a separate document, not included in official directives of the EU in the negotiations. This is because it is considered a reflection of the Belfast agreement, but not a topic of discussion with great Britain.
Informed people in Brussels are saying that Saturday’s summit will be short. They believe that EU leaders will quickly approve the guidance material on the negotiations on Brexia, which set out the limits of the European Union, as at the expert level already agreed and approved.
The clock is ticking, and before the start of official negotiations after the elections on 8 June have less time. In this situation, there are growing signs that the EU is very angry at Britain. On Thursday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that British politicians are in the power of illusion, believing the United Kingdom after secession from the EU will remain a large part of the privileges of membership in the unit.
Before the speech in the Bundestag, the German Chancellor held talks with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. He told her about the dinner held the previous evening at 10 Downing street, which was attended by he the head of the EU delegation at the negotiations on Brexia and Theresa may.
One diplomat from the EU said: “I am deeply pessimistic and hope for a positive outcome of the negotiations.” In this regard, he believes that chances of an exit of Britain from the EU without any agreement in excess of 50 percent.
The European Union is unhappy that the team may, in his opinion, “not serious” to the promise of David Cameron to pay contributions to the EU budget until 2020. Brussels insists that the British promise to the former Prime Minister. “They [the British] just don’t live on another planet — they live in another galaxy,” said the European diplomat.
