    http://www.ema.europa.eu/ema/ (based around some of the UKs most successful companies)


    Both these EU agencies are currently based in the UK.... To protect British Isles jobs should the UK government campaign for them to be moved to Dublin or should we not care where they go after Brexit?

    Should we be pro-Irish or not bother?

    This is an odd thing to post about. We're talking a handful of jobs. If Britain leaves the eu ( I dont think it will) then they have to leave.

    Then of course there is the finances of the entire UK at high risk:

    a whole 1000 you say? Britain creates about that many jobs every couple of days

    secondly you're linking two different stories. That talks about the passport which means staying in the EEA has nothing to do with where some tin pot agency has its hq
