When Irelands underground-agression starts to shoot, Great Britain will awake: There is a truth behind the sadness, not being empire any more. And sorry this time: Germany is not Great Britains enemy this time. Germany is simply sad, if you really manage it, to leave by populists, or not. Because one half of Britains society will be angry about what decision ever in the end.
Being seperated by walls, Germany is an expert by experiance as well: Mind those barriers of populism, please ! Britain decides to leave ?
To leave what ? America first ? Good luck... no Schadenfreude. Not at all... wake up, Ladies and Gentlemen !

Nigel Farage for PM.

I want this woman to start her own YouTube channel where she takes 10 minutes each week to explain the current issues of top-level EU politics...

The UK is just an embarrassment at this point.
Daniel Adams
I find her tone arrogant, patronising and condescending. Can’t bear to listen to her.

This lady would wipe the floor with Farage, Mogg, Johnson and the rest. They wouldn't dare try and get off one of their soundbites with her in the room.

magic madame!

So basically the potential threat of an uprising of Irish terrorism dictates U.K. democracy! The EU is using this analysis as a way of creating a border in the Irish Sea so as to unify the island of Ireland and they hope this would then encourage Scotland and Wales to push for independence......divide and conquer is their motive as retaliation to the U.K. for daring to vote leave!

Who voted for this technocrat?

The backstop, in fact the whole Irish border issue, is a confection dreamed up by the Commission and its puppet Varadkar.

Who in their right mind would want to be a member of a supposedly voluntary organisation that threatens punishment for expressing a desire to leave?

Just as the first Brexit when we separated from the Catholic Church we tried negotiating with them under there rules and just like last time they have refused to do anything in good faith, so the only option is to just walk away and dare them to stop us and then wait to see if and when they are willing to talk to us

The EU put the UK in the meat grinder. Just compare Sabine and David Davis
Robbie Speirs
Make her PM and get the old bag out we need someone who can make a decision.

I don't know why, but i suddenly started thinking about scissors when i saw her...
Yannakis1999
As I don¨t like what she says because the naked truth hurts, I'm going to mock her looks instead
Fred Nav
Very thorough explanation of the situation and very sensible lady.

A rise in hate crime against the UK's Polish community is making some of them think about leaving the country as a result
