Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've given up reading Munchau, and that article illustrates why...
The volume of trade between the EU and the UK was £634 billion in 2018. The total trade volume between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic was £5.4 billion. This is a ratio of more than 100 to one. I understand why the rest of the EU places a higher value on the interests of Ireland than the UK. I do not understand why they place so little value on their own interests.

Shorter Munchau : Fuck the Irish. And the Sudetenland too. The fellow clearly has an impaired sense of history. Appeasing someone who has no interest in being appeased...
