Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A day after the Irish Independent had published my full letter to the editor, the Irish Times published a truncated version leaving out the evidence I adduced to make my point:

Corbyn's Brexit conundrum

Sir, - Jeremy Corbyn was in town last week to drum up support for his Brexit strategy and his hopes to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement should he ever achieve power. Helpfully the Government here shielded him from media scrutiny, which may be just as well as he has no answers for the questions he is likely to face. Why should Ireland and the EU give him a better deal than we gave Theresa May after two long years of negotiations? Precisely what favours do we owe him after the damage Brexit has already done to our economy and the peace process in the North?

If he came with new ideas, then perhaps all well and good. They should be considered. But so far his public utterances have done nothing to dispel the notion that he is still hell-bent on pursuing Brexit, even after it has become clear that an increasing majority of British people have changed their minds.If Mr Corbyn won't represent his own people, then why should we listen to him? - Yours, etc,


I don't like expressing views without at least referencing some supporting evidence...
