Leave It To Nancy

Steady on, Village people.

“Whatever form it takes, Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday agreement, including the seamless border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland,” Pelosi said.

    Actually for once, the Village hits the nail on the head.

    With trust being eroded in British political institutions, the US of A is being presented as some gold standard brand, and if Boris is able to do a deal with the US, then all will be familiarly well.

    Nancy doesn’t have to pipe up to cut Trump’s moustachioed one down to size but she has and she appears to have done so in Ireland’s interests, or at least, Ireland’s interests is a beneficiary.

        Maybe. In Congress, there’s a small cohort who are passionate about the peace process and they will certainly pipe up when push comes to shove. I’m not clear what Nancy’s motivation is though, maybe all bluster, maybe it’s to undermine Trump.

          I don’t think they are all that a_____ed about the peace process on that side of the Atlantic anymore Eoin

          I suspect our biggest allies will be the EU when it comes to standing by and protecting the GFA

          I have lost all interest in US politics and politicans
          and that’s something

    Nancy Pelosi has been a member of the United States Congress since 1987 and worth a minimum 30 million dollars. Insider trading or just knows where the bodies are buried?
