From 'nebulous' to 'kissing': 'Robust' May-Juncker dispute dominates EU summit | Sky News |

This evening, Brexiteers Jacob Rees-Mogg, Nigel Farage and Kate Hoey were among a number of speakers at a Leave Means Leave event held at the QEII Centre in London.

Labour MP Kate Hoey told the audience: "We didn't spend 30 years suffering IRA killings of soldiers and civilians in Northern Ireland to see a united Ireland imposed by a few jumped up EU bureaucrats and a complicit prime minister."

Earlier, the DUP's Sammy Wilson told Sky News: "Nobody likes to see their prime minister being humiliated in the way in which Theresa May has been humiliated.

"It's a reflection on our nation as well as on her as an individual. I think it says a lot for the leaders of the EU, that they feel they can toss her around like some kind of political rag doll."

As Marx wrote, "Hegel remarks somewhere that all Brexit facts and personages appear twice. He forgot to add: the first time as stupid, the second time as even more stupid."

Like having had to go through a full blown leadership contest from within her own party, you mean?

All in all, May has been treated much better by Juncker and Tusk (and Rutte, and Merkel and...) than by her fellow Tories.

Brexit will destroy my late grandfather's dream of an open Irish border

At 16, he nearly died from appendicitis on the floor of a smog-blackened terrace on the Isle of Dogs. He'd come to the shipyards of England to work as a welder - having been unable to ply his trade on the loyalist docklands of Belfast's Harland & Wolff - only to be met by the braying of Cockney foremen who told him, Sorry Paddy. No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish. He spent the next 15 years going back and forth between England and home, often experiencing horrendous abuse at the hands of his English foremen and the sectarian "B-Specials" police force.

In 1911 the Titanic was launched from the Harland and Wolff shipyard

So Brexit is the 21st century Titanic for Northern Ireland, how ironic! No need to explain the iceberg, 90% underneath the surface PM May is facing. :(
