Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What are the consequences for UK trader given exit from EU? My remarks concern the consequences for UK traders on exit, given NI and IE are significant supply nodes in UK manufactures and distribution of ("marketing") unfinished and finished goods to EU27 and ROW.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

It is generally not a good idea for an island dependent on other nations to help manufacture, distribute or sell their products to piss off said nations...

Hence Ireland is (i) keen to remain in the EU, and (ii) anxious to maintain as functional and friction free trade with the UK as possible.

The UK doesn't seem to be as concerned about this, or else thinks that the ROW can't manage without them...
