In response to Janice Davis: Will Irish eyes smile on a Brexiteer?,
Dublin is an interesting small city well worth a short holiday. My wife and I enjoyed staying there for five nights, which was enough to see the best of it. It was the skyline that surprised me the most, being relatively unchanged since empire days, containing no truly high rise contemporary buildings and just a handful of medium rise ones. My favourite tourist ‘sites’ were Trinity College and the amazing Book of Kells plus a few bars were I was ‘forced’ by the heat to test the quality of the Guinness – truly a heavenly nectar!
As the article says, I too am a little sad that Ireland has been used by the EU to erect false obstacles as we set about regaining our sovereignty. I had hoped that the financial help we gave them after the crash, plus the successful visit of the Queen would have seen us through this change.
But no, that man Varadkar, clearly an EU stooge and career opportunist, chose to misguide his country of birth against us, even after we recently at least, worked to be good neighbours – very sad. At a personal level my farmer brother in S W Wales has, over the decades, imported significant numbers of beasts from Ireland whilst his son, my nephew, has sold them useful quantities of his firm’s good quality engineering products. My contribution has been merely to poke around in the wet limestone caves of The Burren, and in later years, visit a number of times as a tourist.
So I do hope that the Irish reject their deceitful globalist politicians’ advice as firmly as we, the British people, have done coming to see that true independence, freedom and upholding their own unique and valuable contribution to western culture lies outside that dictatorial EU empire. Even as a big nation we found that we had little influence over the EU’s wrong-headed policies. So small countries like Ireland have absolutely no chance in steering that gargantuan beast, which unfailingly takes its orders from mainly Germany, with France as junior partner. When Ireland decides to leave we will be waiting to welcome them to the independents’ club.
