SIR – In the past year, Trump has been elevated to the US Presidency, Nigel Farage was triumphant in the Brexit referendum, as was Boris Johnson, yet these three winners are portrayed as the ‘enemies’ of the people, regardless that their victories were conducted through the ballot box. These men are considered really ‘dangerous,’ despite their democratic mandate, and the message is that the gloves are off insofar as the screeching opposition is concerned.

There are myriad groups and ex-politicians along with multi-millionaire actors and play-actors who are demanding that the democratic decisions of the citizens are dumped and everyone goes back to as we were, with Clinton taking the place of Trump, possibly, and somehow making Brexit impossible. 

Their childish aims are doomed to abject failure. We have calls for Enda Kenny to be left as Taoiseach so that, with his ‘vast experience’ in EU matters, he will be vital in the Brexit negotiations. 

What involvement – what negotiations? The man won’t be consulted in any way as far as Britain and the EU are concerned, no matter how many talking shops Kenny ‘masterminds’ on his ignored sideline.

Fine Gael and Sinn Féin in favour of the existing Irish border is too funny for words.

All of this, of course, is hilarious nonsense they are all struggling with, but with troubling undertones for the survival of the political system we labour under, such as it is.

The true direction of the sweet liberal agenda on the airwaves and in politics is in stark contrast to their cuddly image, as they show their true colours in fierce anger and downright rejection of the democratic process.

Robert Sullivan,

Bantry.
