As the Tory Brexit fight club slugs it out, do they even care about Ireland? | Rafael Behr

Ego-wrestling British cabinet ministers seem willing to risk their neighbours’ hard-won peace and prosperity. And the rest of Europe can see that There is no definition of good neighbourliness in foreign affairs. Alliances are fixed by treaties. Regional trade is measured in goods and services. But those things cannot describe the texture of relations between countries, the way adjacent nations rub along together. This quality is as important to Brexit as the technical hooks on which negotiations are currently snagged. No European Union member state wanted the UK to leave, and it is hard for them not to feel aggrieved by Britain’s choices. Theresa May urges Brussels not to take offence. Less emollient leavers say the continentals should get over it and focus on mutual trade (as if their own campaign was some case study in cool rationality). 14-11-17

So way should we leave the EU? Therese May didn't secure a mandate in the elections to leave the single market.? do we have to keep doing this, I voted to remain by the way. It wasn't a vote on Brexit, Corbyn also said Brexit should/is going ahead, according to your reasonoing, you could say 80% of people voted for Brexit, since Labour and Tory achieved about 80%
Ms Sturgeon and her 'taking another vote on a UK split' - so she gets a stay together vote, again, what then. So she gets a leave, break? It looks like self-harmers have taken over the UK. Tory cutters and Tory brexiters. And now another attempt at an internal divorce petition. If her new one isn't really democratic in the sense that more than 50% of the total Scottish electorate votes to quit the UK, then it will cause an additional and similar layer of chaos to that of Brexit. Independence needs to be clear, not a fudge. People should be enthusiastic about it. Minority vote independence (as with Brexit) causes unending internal strife and makes everyone sullenly work to rule.
Could Brexit inspire other countries to leave the EU union? No, Brexit will be the guinea pig for telling if a country will succeed or collapse after leaving. As an N.Ireland citizen, the negatives far outweigh the positives of Brexit. Most of our agriculture industry relies heavily on the EU for funding and distribution. Northern Ireland's border with Ireland is going to cause havoc with the peace process if there's a return to the hard border. N.I science and engineering will likely see funding cuts as that comes from EU as well. Brexit was not a democratic decision. England has the largest population by far. It was not a UK decision, if it were then the individual countries would have been able to make their own decision. May have meant the end of the UK but that would have been proper democracy.
EU say Ireland to be sorted,before further movt, on brexit.Ireland's been fighting in 1 form or other for 100 yrs.Is that brexit over, then?
Hello, regarding Brexit, could you please help me understand the consequences for Ireland, Wales & Scotland? As Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are all countries in the UK and the Brexit vote is to leave the EU which all the countries of the UK voted in........... the Republic of Ireland is another completely separate independent country and has nothing to do with the UK ( as far as voting is concerned) Like everyone else you will have to keep your eye on the discussions between the UK and EU and assess the "consequences" for yourself... one of them is that the UK voted to back our democracy and not have to live by the EU dictatorship and another is not having to pay billions to be a member of the EU dysfunctional club
Is there British military bases in Northern ireland? Northern Ireland? Do you know how many 'Brits' in Northern Ireland have applied for Irish passports since the Brexit referendum? It has risen by 70%. It might be that not only Scotland votes to leave the Union if/when Brexit goes through. No need for the Republic to invade, the Northerners might make up their own minds. After all, they don't get a mention in the Olympics. It's 'Team GB'.

Brexit Britain will have to get used to life as a ‘third country’ | Rafael Behr The government can avoid being ripped off by the EU, but the best deal the UK can hope for is to be first among outsiders Once upon a time there was a creature called Brussels that ate national sovereignty. This monster had a special hunger for Britishness, feasting on the independence of that nation, while its neighbours were mysteriously undiminished. France never became less French, despite dwelling closer to the beast’s lair. Prime ministers were forced to pay tribute to Brussels. They defended themselves with magical red lines, but the m
David Davis is bluffing on Brexit. And now it’s clear for all to see | Rafael Behr The secretary of state’s blustering over the impact assessments reveals one thing: the whole of the government’s Brexit strategy is built on lies and obfuscation It called to mind Bill Clinton’s impact assessments ” and never had been. The secretary of state did not deploy air quotes in his testimony but the implied inverted commas carried the full weight of his argument. It was, in essence, that MPs had voted to insist on the provision of something Continue reading...
May can berate Putin. But Brexit is his dream policy | Rafael Behr As the Russian leader tries to diminish Europe, he finds ideologues such as Boris Johnson are doing the job for him With lighter diplomatic baggage, Boris Johnson might have been a hit in Moscow. The foreign secretary’s artfully dishevelled, pseudo-Churchillian kitsch is not to everyone’s taste, but it could work in the bombastic idiom of Russian politics. Related: Continue reading...

Face facts. The west that won the cold war no longer exists | Rafael Behr Capitalism conquered the eastern bloc. That’s why liberal politics alone won’t defeat today’s populism Finnish TV and toilet paper did as much to undermine the USSR as the nuclear deterrent, an Estonian friend once explained to me. He grew up in Tallinn, under Kremlin rule but within antenna range of American soaps broadcast from Helsinki. What Dallas did for eyes that craved glamour, a smuggled supply of soft tissue did for bums rubbed raw by Soviet-issue bog roll. The Balts had too much exposure to what they were missing to be reconcile
So David Davis won't be found in contempt... 10 Tory MPs and one DUP voted that he had complied with resolution on releasing Brexit impact assessments. Rest of Brexit committee (8 opposition MPs) said he hadn't.

Why do the Irish fight in north Ireland? People aren't actually fighting there. This is a common misconception. There has been trouble for historical reasons because some people in Northern Ireland want to be part of the United Kingdom and some people do not. Things are far more peaceful now due to the peace process.
Do catholics and protestants fight anywhere apart from ireland? Yes. The 17th Century was dominated by religious wars between Protestants and Catholics, including conflicts in France, Spain, Portugal, England, The Holy Roman Empire, and most of Western Europe. Currently, though, the Irish conflict is the only international conflict between Catholics and Protestants.

Why does the Brexit vote align well with biblical prophecy? It doesn't. [edit] I have been asked to expand on this short answer. The Bible is not an answer book for everything that happens to and in human societies or to individual human beings. It is the record of Israel's dealings with God and the witness of God's offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. Nothing that I am aware of in the Bible can be applied to the Brexit. Being pattern-seeking creatures, we naturally look to see if there is a pattern to things but sometimes things just happen.
