Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"as the offshore western islands of Europe [we] are all part of a common whole, and if England or Britain loses so too will Ireland"

If geographical proximity is the main determinant to supposedly "being all part" of that so-called "common whole", then, surely, Northwestern France and Western Flanders can make that claim too: after all, the distance from Dover to Calais is about the same as the distance from Portpatrick to Bangor, and Ostende is almost as close to Ramsgate.

As it happens, the vast majority of nations in Europe have realized they are very much part of a common whole, and they decided to do something about that: it's called the European Union.
