    This year more than 1,800 new solicitors from the jurisdiction of England and Wales had their names entered on the Roll of Solicitors in Ireland, representing a more than 163% increase on the same figure in 2018.

    Go to Brannigans Irish Pub on Playa de las Americas in Tenerife and ask for 'Manuel O'Leary', he'll sort one out for you, cheap....
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Easiest way: be born on the island.
    Next easiest: parents or grandparents born on the island.
    Next: marry someone with an Irish passport, then live on the island for 3 years.

    A few years ago you could get a passport if you invested €1million in the ROI, not sure if that’s still an option, but you could try with half of you moderator Christmas bonus for this year...

    I'm glad there will be more people to bail out the EU with big tax rises when time comes...2020 is the most likely.

    Tax is what pays for public services and the operation of democratic governments. The US-style obsession with low taxes but also tulip almost non-existent public services over there seems to be spreading like wildfire over here too unfortunately to inside IR35 serfs such as yourself.
