SIR – I’m finding it difficult to keep up with the rapidly-evolving pronouncements from Gerry Adams regarding Brexit.
Just a while ago, he was assuring his followers that Brexit could hasten his ‘united Ireland’ dream, and lately he’s adopted the notion that there could be an occasion of our Good Friday Agreement unravelling.
The mantra now is that there is a danger of the ‘peace process’ coming down around his ears, but I’d like to know how this would happen.
Are there shady characters otherwise known as ‘freedom fighters’ awaiting orders to throw away the olive branches from the mouths of their doves of peace out in the backyard?
Will ‘permission’ be sought prior to any official announcement towards naughtiness, or will it be sprung on us by way of a Manchester or Canary Wharf spectacular?
Gerry and the shin-boners are upset at the small-ish majority of the Brexit success, yet are longingly awaiting his 50+1 percent Northern Ireland vote which he sees as giving Gerry victory over his fellow countrymen and women who wish to remain British.
One man’s majority is another’s man’s opportunity, I don’t think. Oh, Gerry, you have me all over the place with your flip-flopping on any given day.
Look man, things will be staying exactly as they are, both with a handy border suiting everyone going forward and co-operation all round. We’ll be fine, but please, Gerry, get assurances from has-beens like Bertie Ahern and John Major who, in their eagerness to see Brexit disappear, will say something stupid when they ought to say nothing.
Tell them to stop espousing nonsense which you might see as a rallying cry to ‘republican’ failures of recent history. That could be dodgy, and sure we all know your love of peace is as genuine as the rest of us hold.
No going back, Gerry, eh? Good man
