    If the Tories plan to make a big deal out of the NHS (and their new found support for it), then one suspects that they will not be following the Irish route in that respect…the health service in the 26 counties is in chaos, with an ill-judged stealth campaign of privatising the health service underway…
    There is a price to be paid for having the lowest tax take in the EU and it is having a shockingly bad public health service.

    Nice to see someone looking West for a change though, refreshing…
    Perhaps, Unionists can appreciate the irony…

    Yes, but the Republic inherits a small infrastructure that needs investment to expand enough to cater for a growing population. Labour has kindly provided the Tories with high levels of expenditure, which could give them ample to cut.

    Front line services will be favoured: the manager class, put in under Thatcher, will go. If they can make the partnership work towards intelligent cutting, then I don’t see why things could not move towards Ireland in the medium to short term.

    It would give the DUP their requested cut in Corporation tax…
