Looks like we’ll have to live with inaccurate, divisive articles like this for next few weeks, aimed at unsettling people – best ignored. Ireland’s position on #Brexit has been fair, consistent + honest, and it will remain so, despite provocation. https://t.co/nRLI4YjF3O

It’s such a pity that Bruce Arnold’s #bredit truth bomb is behind a paywall for most and an even biggrer pity that it isn’t being published in an Irish newspaper. but m goodness this needed to be said. pic.twitter.com/usYXlRgaGw

Ah lads, come off it! Britain is our “ancient and friendly neighbour.”?! Fair enough, we’ve been getting on reasonably well since GFA but from 1169 to 1998 it wasn’t exactly what Bruce Arnold might describe as cricket! https://t.co/9LqqcdlzdT

Mr Arnold might have added that Fine Gael’s forebears fought a civil war, committed atrocities including executions without trial and the Ballyseedy Massacre all to impose a hard border.

Bruce Arnold, Eoghan Harris and co. These preposterous trogs, the more they and other Tory fools attack Varadkar, the more they make this ineffective, housing crisis-maintaining, capital spending-inept, self-obsessed, Kylie-letter-writing Taoiseach actually look competent #Brexit https://t.co/sy2KAjayyq

‘Bought by Brussels, little Ireland’s ridiculous leaders have landed it in a Brexit crisis’, Arnold writes.
“Whatever faults the British may have, they understand independence and freedom. I can understand why they mock the ridiculous behaviour of these two men.

Bruce Arnold furore & the venom released by many Irish commentators is instructive. Regardless of the hyperbole in the article, the kneejerk reaction illustrates a nation lacking a certain maturity to calmly discuss relations with UK rather than engage in puerile anglophobia
