Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week April 23, 2017

Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.

Some regulars are missing today so not as much to consider as normal, but at least one old hand delivers.

Ruth Dudley Edwards has a piece on how Scottish and Irish nationalists need to grow up when it comes to Brexit. Strangely, no mention of English nationalism.

There’s genuine concern in Westminster about the effect of Brexit on Ireland, north and south, and a strong desire to make the effects as painless as possible.

All that evidence to the contrary is clearly wrong.


1. EWI - April 23, 2017

Brexit is happening and all those affected should be trying to make the best of it. Yet Irish and Scottish nationalists seem intent on seeking party advantage through negativity and an Anglophobia that grown-ups grew out of long ago.

This is like neo-Nazis accusing a mild-mannered centre-right party of having fascist leanings. It’s not as if ‘crush the saboteurs’ wasn’t a phrase being thrown around by her natural home in the rabid English Tory press this very week.
