A message for Britain in an anguished Irish Times editorial!

The entire leading article from yesterday's Irish Times, titled "Was it for this?" may be read here, the lesson for we English, particularly your typical Tory MP, comes in this paragraph: "The true ignominy of our current situation is not that our sovereignty has been taken away from us, it is that we ourselves have squandered it. Let us not seek to assuage our sense of shame in the comforting illusion that powerful nations in Europe are conspiring to become our masters. We are, after all, no great prize for any would-be overlord now. No rational European would willingly take on the task of cleaning up the mess we have made. It is the incompetence of the governments we ourselves elected that has so deeply compromised our capacity to make our own decisions."
