if. u.k. pull. of the close of union forget the single market we know that are done for get to you but if they pull out at the close and you know how can you have a friction this border how can you have a border that would have controlled somebody checkpoint along leader of a country you've been do not feel some sympathy for the prime minister to these images caught between a rock that is to say the the at the point you make that the customs union may be necessary to fulfill the frictionless border and some very hard cases and but. with a cabinet it's the nightmare for any and prime minister to have a cabinet as the vitus as hard as both the difficulty for all so if i can be a bit parochial. position pascal lamy who is that the expert on world trade because of his w t o as world trade organization days and european
commission days has said that it is impossible to have a non controlled regulated border and if on the border if the u.k. pulled out that's our that's our dilemma and you know it's i'd love to hear said david davies and all of the elders say that they don't want to damage the peace process they don't want to damage the good friday agreement. they don't want to do anything that will upset the north and the south and all be done for twenty years and then quickly add both we're leaving the european union to sink a mark in the close of union it's not the people who start fighting again are violence alex it's it's a two way trade it's you know our unit is an export country we export. practically seventy eighty percent of what we produce and the u.k. is to big the big markets of both it is the industries that are vulnerable and. the
agricultural in the face it's the perishable it's a you know the vegetable picked a small learning in north county dublin as in the supermarkets tomorrow morning and in different parts of the u.k. when you look i do not limit can't you see examples of the one countries in the customs union one come to illustrate norway and sweden for example not always out of the customs union swede novices afu european union members know that border this is not fictionalise but it couldn't be described as a hot bowl of a maybe real sense isn't it is not beyond the ingenuity of humankind to work the difference with a lot of the examples that are around if you take the european ones is that you know the countries that are outside third involve than i dared to european economic area and they've effectively selling dope to brussels roods i'm tackling them with movement and afraid meant to move and so so there. might be some technical
difficulties but there's not many in our case it's different the. u.k. will be out of the whole goddamn lost and and. david davies lights to mention is the american canadian border bolt and i don't know why he keeps mentioning that because they always have to do is google this and you'll see the massive coos of traffic. waiting for it to checkpoints so that's precisely the example you use this is precisely our fear on the border in this solution that we would like to find if somebody goes use ingenuity is near to the status quo as humanly possible. as you led coalition governments you know the difficulties one exactly so depending on sometimes small parties for parliament. and that is the position that recently is in with the. unionist party.
leadership would seem less flexible less pragmatic so it was twenty years ago. are you surprised the move against what seemed like an accommodation between the tories only and the european union before christmas i was surprised in the referendum campaign that the democratic unionist party there were the only party i think where the only major party in the north who can bust. everybody else where remainders. and the coalition of all kind of groups wanted to remain and of course to vote in order an ardent was overwhelmingly to remain. and sold out house to be taken into account to do you peto could opposing view they believed. they would get a very good deal at a so i suppose the election result was was great for that and i'm from
a political point of view and it's a lot at the beginning of the election phase may was going to have a huge majority and that nobody in ordinary that would matter a tall and that ends up in the election. to stay in power that she has to have the support of the. relatively small you know very crucial group of do you pay democratic unionist party and peace so i don't blame them for playing the card i mean what they're. and i don't worry about that because quite frankly they've the responsibility now that if the british government does anything that's very negative. and affects the economy in order and aren't who's going to get the blame in northern ireland patrice and pay it will be that democratic unionist party so they can only support as long as they agreement this puzzle off. and that's not going to be easy as we go through this year. because.
the transition agreement ok i don't see that it's a difficulty transition agreement that probably would go where you want to go to the end to twenty twenty two weeks may want to go bit a bit longer but she has to watch the next general election when that is but more importantly she has to to now start work what's the future relationship and that's going to be to the crucial issue in order to hadn't look at blood and the islands both the. scottish first minister those are working together to try and secure the position within the single market a few of the thoughts of advice to these ministers how they might deploy the deploy their arguments to get a result it's in our interest to to to watch carefully and the island the veyron of both north and south and how they do and what they do because we we have built up really good relationships in particular with scotland over over the years and
that's something we want to keep and treasure the huge interest between our people and scottish people i think the big issue for them again is trade me let's look at what is the future relationship about the future relationship about foreign policy i think we can see where there can be solutions and those it's on security we can see where the solutions are it's in everybody's interest of good security but its trade is the big one. and the future relationship i think for trade is important republicans are good for the islands environment for scotland for wales. that's what's going to happen in that ad kind of a knock on effect to our population a workforce you know i'm to your leadership the chinese council. a meaningful institution out of the agreements and normile and you see a more meaningful role for the british i was counsel to high. looking at this
confused landscape a means of getting a lot of cooperation which would be difficult to see any other institution which could bring about we all toss for ever more we were going to be in the european union together. and that we would be partners in european union and that's the negotiating table for fisheries and. you know for health care and cooperation and education was going to be in the european union and. backs it happens that's not so anymore there is no british representative set to table on any of these issues but the issues are still hugely important so i think the british are as counsel would be the only place where political leaders of these islands would meet the institutional arrangement is dare and it hasn't been used enough in my if you. think it should be more active and there should be more engagement so i think
you're correct i think it's the other side of bracks as it gets a new lease of life beyond the buttons of possibility the future british prime minister or perhaps even the english prime minister might be folding up there. asking for some subjects to be raised in the european capitals that will not be able to raise them so i think crazy its position in the transition period. is that . the european council would be continuing on and britain will still be in the european union fully and they won't have any say whatever to the go satan table i mean that sounds to be the worst time and if you're playing cards you definitely give up so i don't think i'll be in the long terabyte include pee in the shard tear and the bruises will need arland and the doors to be helpful it'll save a little boy so it will fold your cubs face up it's
a bad hand. elliston is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos i'm in bill fails to commission to do it like a million little pieces and my complicity is something i'm going to go for sunday all may be a bit. old john and i just hope for the ship the only palestinians is who gets the most help from its jerusalem counterparts i don't think this is about those who endure under the oak vision of no one who could do this. and no it is unfair that it's got to this lady of the most of that you had i not going to continue muslims you know do more in the middle sauced don't piss off. me. hey everybody i'm stephen ball. task hollywood guy yell suspect every proud
american first of all i'm just george bush and r.v.'s to say this is my buddy max famous financial guru well he's a little bit different i'm not a good one i know no one knows up with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the road have some fun meet everyday americans come home and hopefully start to bridge the gap this is the great american people which. fifty years ago breaking with it until comes again as a sleeping pill does this is what i believe because i just want to share this thought the scientific sweat terrible but not on the road as shown in dutch wonderful board. here not the war. then boom boom off across europe
victims are starting legal battles demanding at least some compensation in south in two ways first will the physical damage itself as well that the constant reminder that the people who actually perpetrated this crime has never been able to justice and there has been a couple of. welcome back to dublin i'm speaking to the longest serving dish of island apart from. the man who presided over the celtic tiger economy of the one nine hundred ninety s. one of the economic implications. for i am a look at your political career over the period. so one waving to this but.
maybe you will to the t. show through the the celtic tiger and the start of the the financial side going to a substantial. kind you you see the game of the possible phylum froma. in london yeah well we are gaining already i mean and dublin we're not going to take out huge financial houses and see the move. from london to dublin that's going to happen but what is happening is that more and more of the financial companies and the insurance companies aviation are opening up dublin offices are expanding their dublin office and that's good for us we've probably moved in position where about one percent of our population would have been non irish now to our work and force about fifteen percent and would be new irish whichever term you like to use is made a huge difference and i think if bracks that happens there will be again and that
area right across the food sector which issues for else to drink sector. and many to go there are small or small and medium size industry c s m e castaway and they will suffer. if there is any kind of tired of see if there are any kind of obstacles if you go back twenty years ago only a target of the trade that took place anywhere else in europe between dublin belfast was happening we don't we don't have targeted we've grown that now that the two great cities of this island are working together expanding to go. that are developing together it's not a small figure at billion a week and two way trade between between the the island the vironment and. maine the end intendant it's a lot of money and before like i know bardas likes to tell us about all the new trade deals but you know it was a lot of stubs and an artist on site are the secretary come over here recently was talking about the you know all the new new deal he's going to get should remember
usually when you have a business you hold on to watch i have and then go out and you tend not to troll way which i have and then go somewhere else and even in the commonwealth club face and there's not that many of them that are that begs to provide trade but most of them of agreements already with the so i don't think that there is this great. trade deals that the war that turned out there and if you and i were negotiating trade deals and you are in india and i was the e.u. trade minister you know he cannot give the terms and that to you you can get i mean do you are a far bigger marcus look at your political career over the period. despite less huge issue to be dealt with for the terms of bricks that. lee island and island the file and develop them been transformed us a as
a serious european player i would you assess that period will bit the range of your time in politics we have over doubled our size of our economy and the last twenty years and employment when i was minister for labor negotiating with the trade unions. we did a million people working. and we had almost twenty percent unemployment today we've two and a quarter million people work and we have about five part something percent on the bottom and we were down we will go down again i. train the half are forward again so we're in a strong position there are ups and downs at that i like so a lot of the industries are multinational a lot of our exports are pharmaceutical and i t. the food which is more indigenous so the challenge is all the time but you know it's a strong conflict today it said you know that the last thing we need as you know
problems with our with our neighbors we had that for hundreds of years so we want to try and find solutions to problems and get on with it and we can do it i would direct that issue but you know we are developing all the time we're strengthening all the time and we just have to keep doing that i'm working hard because as a small island ted said there's not a never easy going to happen in the interest of celtic so a balance if. you get the quick. scale of course has to be. of the other stuff else for you thank you so much thank you very much thank you thank you very much thank you. fascinating insights there from alan's former teacher but i see her and let's hear from you and your tweets messages and e-mails and what a terrific response there was to merely mcdonnell's interview last week not least of many women i'm going to beat five treats first i've trees are from some of our women of yours if you know yours and says well done it may we're getting alex tilt
women not girl those of you who watched last week remember that alex referred to me lou as a doctor and girl and she quite correctly correct him say dublin women alex kyle and say it's really enjoyed watching this and i've never said that about political interview hazel says thanks for today's show i've enjoyed all your shoes but today explains much about allen's political sphere that i didn't know looking forward to the next two also keep up the good viewing i'm glad to enjoying and hope even joyce and enjoying today show and indeed next week's more says how to fashion to have interviews where people are allowed to speak for the interruption the new lease of shin fein was impressive i look forward to seeing what change she may bring. more like says there's no denying that alex salmon she was going from strength to strength fabulous listening to the new sion families are another strong female voice and i to give the lads a quick look and robert like he says really ensure again alex intice mina scotland's most global broadcasting ambassadors you give hope that
a voice can be heard thanks robert archie finally says first time watch the alex salmond show i don't know all the fuss was all about it's pretty good well thank you artie and i back to island trees i'm a surprise election of last year dramatically change the calculus of the house of commons and so tomorrow i will move a motion in the house of commons calling for a general election to be held on the eighth of june not least for the democratic unionist party after generation is a mere bit played in westminster politics elections saw them emerge victorious in their long struggle with the ulster unionists for supremacy is the voice of northern irish unionism even more significantly the election is that combined with the loss of the twenty majority in the house of commons so the d.p. propelled into position of the site of influence and a hung parliament he who holds the balance holds the power but with power comes responsibility and there are signs that this position is causing difficulties within the party talks the sinn fein who preach deadlock and the party are seems
uncomfortable with the compromises required to restart the diva lucian's process and no matter how many times we're told that the norse and british north american british. the brits are supporting d.d.p. now finds its antipathy towards should apparently conflicting with its wish to maintain an open border with the irish republic the party funded by the late reverend paisley in the one nine hundred seventy s. has reached its zenith of power and influence that ironically with that very success now if you face it all of its achievements rest from the stables doing. college grid so you don't house of commons this week assume a deadlock at the top so no. violent and all the governments are still in favor of the belfast agreement for the first statement twenty years voices across the political spectrum from brought to tears so the good friday agreement has outlived its usefulness and then the house of commons chamber
a number of voices less than enthusiastic about the resumption of devolution. i think the people of northern ireland will be disappointed in the secretary of state and of course they'd like the executive back but what they want more than anything is a budget that is green on ways to reform of the health service and education that we're all agreed before and walked out why is the sixth state still dillydallying and waiting and waiting and waiting what does she think is going to be achieved in the next month you mr speaker in the last say forty eight hours a couple of members of this time so the british amy p. have attacked because trade you can even times has been saying as field and unsustainable will she join. our lives to keep prime minister in condemning such language as is responsible for the good friday agreement school to the peace for almost twenty years in northern ireland could the foreign secretary have given other political assurances that the her majesty's government will not do anything
that undermines the agreement including pursuing any policy that not only undermines the agreement or in any way undermines the principles that led up to the creation of that good friday agreement mr speaker as the house will recognise this april marks the twentieth anniversary of historic belfast agreement that agreement along with its successors has been fundamental in helping northern ireland move forward from its violent past to a brighter and more secure future. and this government's support for the agreements remains steadfast as does our commitment to govern for everyone in northern ireland i'm to the secretary of state. we of course she. stand ready to form the executive today tomorrow on the basis of no preconditions on the basis of the agreed to program for government which in fee and back in december before she walked out of sat preconditions political demands that they want to see implemented before they
get back into the executive so the fact additional we exactly to fish not the fault of the d.p. indeed the fault of the other smaller parties next left make up very pretty clear but in the absence of the government now is the time for the secretary of state to to do right by all the people of northern ireland i've just come from a meeting of a group of charities and others who want somebody to lobby a minister to argue with mental health twenty eight in northern ireland there will be no ministers for thirteen months that's how it continues its time secretary of state to set a budget that the efforts should be evolution continued yes we want to see devolution but it is a dereliction of duty to continue without a budget without ministerial decisions it's time to get on with it while the slightest bit of a drain and a time line for the imposition of the records that sit in this place to ensure that the people of northern ireland are not contained to the lead of the nose by shanthi in the party who do not have the intestinal and aren't at heart pretty sick with
destruction of the state of northern ireland an attempt to secure i don't want that on on workable on and that is never never never going to happen jim shannon the experienced m.p. for strength echoing an old war cry from dr the imperiously i thought it was ian paisley who led. the government to. in contrast in a later interview jim shannon pretty uncompromising i think there are three options in the table that one of those getting. possible but then that's the fight that we could probably get by the northern assembly it works well there's nothing that the killer that's going to help at this point and the second one has as direct will which will be a clear direct role. from from here from the on the third one i think which is a possible it is a half way house where they were just pay the register their office they were just there a neighbor come a consultative body to oversee
a government departments and then real. unsafer the. to the ministers on a friday at westminster where they say the papers probably were looking. this is the second week of our chile to an island in the wise words or form a t. shirt party hard resonate like the ghost of christmas past for today's amaze government this hugely expedient statesman confirms that the good friday agreement is that see just risk from the westminster government's reckless approach to brics it he also to visit his city when dining state will have to go cap in hand to dublin to see its interest protected in europe i start traversal in the relationship between the two islands of britain ministerial statements prime ministerial meetings come and go but as yet no breakthrough is in sight next week we return with the voice of former looked around the violent to me to mark elise a woman born in the north to became president of the republic she will certainly be
