    Theresa May’s plan! Not the Tories plan! All the patronising BS from “liberals” and “moderates” about Corbyn leading a personality cult while the Tories were *actually* trying to start one for May.

      she’s jealous of our slithery and incompetent right wing government that gets sod all criticism or opposition. i bet she thinks she could get the big gig here and walk away with 100k pension after a few years of monkey farming.

    I felt the love of the British when I was detained at St. Helier Airport in the 90s under “The Prevention of Terrorism Act”. Apparently, travelling with an Irish passport is a reason to detain and question. This was not the worst thing to happen in Jersey, my taxi driver asked was I visiting my brother, Gilbert O’Sullivan?

      Shayna, my unfortunate brother in law, who has always resided in the Republic, had the misfortune to need to travel to the U.K. on a regular basis for business purposes. He had red hair, and a red beard. Imagine what fun he had at various airports during that period. By the way, his first name was ‘Mick’ :-D Thank goodness the U.K. have NEVER indulged in ‘racial profiling’.

        @Sheik I feel for your unfortunate brother in law. I was also detained briefly in Gibraltar and Cyprus, I sensed there was a pattern emerging. As you mentioned, thankfully the UK don’t do racial profiling.

    historic ties, is it? it was more of a take take take kind of relationship, with not an inconsiderable amount of genocidal economic policies with a touch of land clearances and general lethal toffery from her accendents…not 1 jot do the tories give about Ireland – north or south, maybe find some oil, they’d be on us like a tattoo on a fat wans hewp
