      Even though it would be catastrophic for Ireland, part of me would love to see the look on their faces when there is no-one left to harvest their crops, and when 1 million sub-burnt pensioners are deported from Spain and France looking to be treated by an NHS that has lost half of its nurses and and a hape of doctors…

      Yea, the Jimmy Savile loving royals get to keep their offshore blood money away from the EU accountants and screw everyone else.

      Democracy isn’t democracy when it’s sold on false pretences.

        Were you waving a pitchfork when you wrote that ?
        Asking for a friend.
        He’s Irish.
        And lives in London.
        I don’t recall ever telling him to go home.
        That would be racist.

      Mullered, surely?

      Mullahed is a different thing entirely; something that the Brits railed against in this Brexit thingummy.

      Brother Barnabas has taken the time to school you on the need for precision in the use of language and grammar. Best respect your betters and pay attention.

        Mullahed or mullered is a slang word which can be spelled both ways depending on your preference.
        It would be like me choosing to describe you as either a silly or a shilly – it’s purely a matter of preference.
        Not that I would, of course …

          1. Charger Salmons

            The discussion is about spelling not pronounciation.
            It’s also an English slang word not an Irish one.
            Top o’ the morning to you.

            …maybe getting ‘mullahed’ is the equivalent of the Irish getting ‘leathered’ – could happen in either a religious school (all schools) or a pub…

          3. Charger Salmons

            The origins of the word, like the phrase the Full Monty, are shrouded in mystery.
            My spelling of it is meant to come from the expression mad mullahs.
            The muller spelling is something to do with the German footballer of that name.
            But it’s a slang word so really any interpretation will do.
            I prefer mine.

      Thanks Kate.
      Magnanimous Irish People with an eye on the bigger picture are the new Ireland.
      The small-minded , whiff of the farmyard mob still clinging to the past on here are yesterday’s news.
      Brainwashed and without an original thought between their ears.
      Huzzah.
      Brexit is done.

          Balbriggan. Not ‘Ballbrigan’.

          If you want to insult someone, at least do it accurately.

    I’ve never been a patriot or loyal to a European flag but yesterday for the first time I was proud to disassociate myself from these loud, arrogant, hate filled hooligans.

      Cheers Clamps old sport. You always were one of the more enlightened posters on here.
      We’re out and it’s a triumph of democracy – the first country in the EU to actually carry out the result of an EU referendum and not simply have another one to void the first.
      We’re in no doubt the hard yards start now but I believe with goodwill on both sides a trade deal is possible.
      It just needs the EU to accept there’s a new kid on the block and if they want our custom as their single biggest market it will take two to tango.
      For now though we’ll enjoy the day.
      February Ist is the end of dry January and Veganuary as well as the start of the Six Nations. It’s nearly summer !
      What’s not to celebrate ?

      1. Clampers Outside

        Aye, you’re out, now make a proper go of it! :)

        I find beyond reason the comments that wish failure…. it makes zero sense on All accounts.

        The same commenters do appear to be driven by that which they accuse Brexit of being driven by… “hate”… which from my reading of various UK attitude polls say otherwise, and can only be a projection of the hate of said commenters.

        Again, I say, good luck!

        1. Charger Salmons

          We’ll give it our best shot.
          When all is said and done all we’re doing is changing the way we trade with Europe and the rest of the world.
          Which, when you think about it, is the only reason we joined the original Common Market in the first place.
          All the European superstate and vast unelected bureaucracy came afterwards when the Lisbon Treaty was rammed through by the EU while ignoring opposition.
          The EU is now reaping what was sown.
          Quite why this has people on here foaming at the mouth and coming out with the usual Brit- bashing is genuinely beyond me.
          I can only conclude it’s fear and ignorance.
          A strong UK economy is a major benefit for Ireland.

          1. Clampers Outside

            No.
            No I don’t know that.

            Doesn’t matter how you, I or anyone imagines it.

            It is what it is now, and it is done. And wishing the UK well, is a good well wish for us too.

          2. Otis Blue

            I’m genuinely interested in the claims of a democratic deficit in the EU. Many valid criticisms can be made of the EU, but the real wonder is that it exists at all. It’s democratic legitimacy comes from the elected Parliament and through the Council of Ministers, again elected representatives. Sure, the Commission is a behemoth but the very nature of an Executive makes it so. If it lacks efficiency and accountability it’s no different to any other Civil Service; not least our own.

            As for the UK, it’s worth mentioning that the Monarchy, the House of Lords or the likes of Dominic Cummings suggest much more in the way of a democratic deficit.

          3. Clampers Outside

            Take for example the refugee risks and how it is handled in Europe… Did you ever watch the BBC special on how the refugee crisis in Europe came about and how the elected EU parliament was over run by Merkel? That’s a big example. Start with that. And start by looking at the genuine problems it has caused such as a directly attributable 10% rise in violent crime in Germany since 2015 (as per Ed Balls BBC programme earlier this week). That’s just one stat in one country on one huge issue that has knock on affects across all services.

          4. Otis Blue

            I’ve not seen either programme. When you talk about the refugee crisis in this context, are you referring to its cause or its effect?

          5. Clampers Outside

            Both issues.

            The cause, the anti-democtratic decision by Merkel.
            The affect, the resulting social issues (see Germany + others) often covered up (see Denmark for eg), or dismissed as nothing (see Sweden for eg).

          6. Otis Blue

            Help me out here. I’m not clear on what the anti-democratic decision taken by Merkel was.

            Any useful link?

    When does the “let us back in” campaign start as they get screwed into the ground? #britsin

    In the meantime, bye. Nobody liked you anyway. Even yourselves.

  3. Charger Salmons

    Well you quite liked us when we had to bail you out with three and a half billion big ones baby.
    Why, you even paid us rather a generous interest rate for it.
    Now back in your box.
    Toodles.

    1. spudnick

      To save your own banks’ interests here, is all. And you got every penny back. You’re welcome

    Sad day it’s come to this
    There will be no winners as all are weakened
    As for GFA that’s now in danger as the game starts

    Much as I disagree with the politics of the paper she works for there’s no doubt that Marina Hyde has become the pre-eminent wordsmith of her generation.
    This piece on Brexit reads like an absolute dream.
    ” Boris Johnson must now play the Henry V to his own Falstaff, which is his tragedy. We all have to watch, which is ours. ”

    She’s the Apple MacBook to Fintan O’Toole’s Olivetti typewriter.

    One thing I must say. The removal was done with dignity, and the lady was very respectful in handling the flag. Well done!
