Men's deadliest enemy. Ireland nevertheless still deserves our moral support!

"When unlimited and unrestricted by individual rights, a government is men's deadliest enemy." Ayn Rand

The EU is now effectively a government! Worse it is daily ever more obvious that its nature and methods are tyrannical!

Although the people of Ireland have shown that imposition of an economic dependency can successfully drive a once independent people to choose imagined comfort and security over sovereignty, independence and freedom I imagine others will not so readily accept effective slavery. Their leader presupposes that benefit might be achived from such cowardice, read this report in the Irish Times, from here.

Elsewhere in that same newspaper, read here, one of the main architects of the EU's present venal machinations, EU Commissioner Olli Rehn, actually predicts the obvious end result of  the treatment already inflicted on Greece, Ireland and Portugal now resulting in the breakdown of civilised life in Spain and Italy.

Britain or more correctly England, Northern Ireland and Wales must offer their support to the Irish people in the coming difficult times. The people of Scotland unhappily have themselves presently chosen a government that wishes to impose a similar form of slavery on their country as that selected by the people of Ireland yesterday, when they opted for rule by foreigners under the new European Fiscal Treaty, so far thanks to Britain and David Cameron, not yet an EU Treaty!

Sorry I do not agree that we have to help out the Irish. They have voted for the EU. They got the chance to vote no and failed. When they had to rerun the vote they changed their minds and voted yes.

They got the chance that we since 1975 have not had. Our government goes to any lengths to avoid putting the question to us.

Sorry, but the turkeys voted for Christmas and Christmas is coming.

I fully understand your point of view.

I beleive we should (perhaps "must" was too strong a word, in that we share a land border with Ireland, the same imperative which exists for us to try to retain our union with Scotland.

Of course if the Irish and the Scots opt to go with whatever it is that emerges from the present EU shambles, we will have to go our own way, whatever the difficultie such borders might present!

Note in the headline it was moral support I was intending we offer. The low turnout in the referendum vote means all is not yet lost!

Bollocks, the UK owes the Republic of Ireland nothing, financially or morally.
They have made their bed, they need to lie in it. The UK isnt a friend in the eyes of the Republic, they are a competitor to be screwed and taken advantage of when the times suit.
Let the UK ensure Northern Ireland mops up the jobs and industry currently located in the Republic. Why subsidise that country to ensure its corporation tax levels and APD levels are much lower than in Belfast, costing jobs for our own people.
