LETTER: We were used as a pawn to hurt our best friend

SIR – The 'bull-in-a-china-shop' Brexit arrogant bluster of the Leo and Simon government has come home to shock them at the temerity of the UK agricultural tariffs which will apply in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Did they really think the EU was going to protect farmers from an economic border which they assured themselves was never going to happen?

This is only the beginning of tariffs and taxes Britain will take in its own defence against every and all vengeful EU measures undertaken by it and its willing puppets (Irish).

Take a good look at what is happening because we stupidly were used as a pathetic pawn to hurt our best friend. It is Britain we should have been courting all along with regard to our future.

Already EU murmurings from Brussels are talking hard borders, yet it will be Dublin forced to enforce it on the orders of Brussels. Good luck with that.

The Dáil is a childlike embarrassment to the citizens of Éire regarding Brexit.

Robert Sullivan,

Bantry.
