And they won't even have to go very far with the Republic of Ireland
staying in the EU. London or Dublin, doesn't make much difference.

They do still make the three-wheeler but I was thinking more of the
4/4, which is still made of wood but has four wheels and a real engine.
It is one of the most fun-to-drive cars made today. And less scary to
drive than the Ariel Atom.

He probably meant a Morgan 4

I assume anyone who finds a three wheeler desirable would
just get a new Prius or 'smart' or some such.

That was a bit cruel, Alan. Dave is not accustomed to being so brutally
confronted by facts.

Good point. Let the Irish pick up the tab for their next megafailure.

The UK government bailed out Dublin the last time to the tune of £14
billion. Any country that hosts financial institutions deemed too big to
fail will have to have deep pockets.

It was the most outrageous scandal of recent times, and yet you find
people like Dave Plowman cheerfully defending the indefensible. :-/

It's actually fairly new. And horrendously expensive. The originals were
fun though, and still quite a few around.

Yes you can have great fun with one at speeds that aren't scary.

There you go then. We export very little in the way of manufactured goods
and financial services are actually a drain on the economy.
Hope you are looking forward to penury.

But isn't this the stagnated status quo that those wishing to remain are
so eager to promote.
