Talks About Talks

at

This morning.

Dublin Castle, Dublin 2

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar (pic 1) and  Leader of Fianna Fail Micheal Martin (pic 2) address the All-Island Civic Dialogue on Brexit watched by Sinn Féin Leader Mary Lou McDonald  with Deputy Leader Michelle O’Neill MLA. It follows another Parliamentary defeat for UK Prime Minister Teresa May last night.

Mr Varadkar said:

“One of the most striking things about what’s unfolded since the UK’s decision to leave has been the remarkable solidarity from the EU side, despite many attempts to bilateralise issues.

The solidarity has been strong and resolute and those who think it will break at the last moment are in for a nasty surprise”.

Hmm.

Taoiseach says Brexit extension possible but not inevitable (RTÉ)

    “the solidarity has been strong and resolute and those who think it will break at the last moment are in for a nasty surprise”

    ie

    “we can see what you trying to do”
    “we’re trying our best to stop you, did you see that giant card last week and Si had to give away our neutrality in Washington on Venezuela in return for US support”
    “we’re dreading the inevitable outworking of the Brits talking down the clock and the EU27 faced with deal or no deal, and choosing deal which includes a cave-in on the backstop”

    In fairness, the interest in the EU and the feeling of togetherness has been pretty strong. I mean, who would have heard or seen Guy Verhofstadt if it wasn’t for Brexit? I just hope we (Ireland) get a wedge of cash as compensation – and it stays out of the hands of the blushirts and into great Brexit-mitigating projects.

      Part of Ireland is in the UK dear. Most of those inhabitants are lacking in what we know as soft social skills but still, definitely part of Ireland.

    There, fixed. You’re welcome.
