“I’ve always said I’m going to fight until the last hour… so we can see an orderly exit,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel (top) said last night  on the eve of an Ireland visit, warning that avoiding a hard border was a matter of preserving the peace.

Speaking at a Berlin press conference, said that an orderly Brexit would be “in interest of Britain but also in our interest”.

She said that, because of the related issue of avoiding a new “hard border” between British Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, it would also affect “peace in Ireland”.

Therefore it was “a question of violence or no violence and here we naturally want to make a contribution,” Merkel said.

Gülpen.

    very interesting how her visit is being kept off the front pages this morning (bar the brief bit in the IT about the solidarity show) gosh almost like it’s not to be discussed…LPT musings, Treacy/Delaney, Hamish the fupping Terrier…sure tis all just an average calm day in Dublin, wha?

    Haben wir Angst? Vielleicht hat das Irische Publikum vor dem Brexit keine Angst und keine Ahnung. We are treated like tender mushrooms – kept in the dark and fed a lot of compost ordure.

      Ich mag Angela, sie ist eine echte Anführerin.
      Germans have a good understanding of the effects of borders and violence for some reason.

    You look like an Angela
    Walk like an Angela
    Talk like an Angela
    But I got wise
    You’re the devil in disguise
    Oh yes you are
    The devil in disguise

    I thought Jennifer’s contribution was brilliant and the first time on uk tv that someone has called out the racist and profoundly horrible and nasty attitude that many many people and large swaths of the political class have towards us in the UK.
