Warning Ireland




Westminster will not incorporate the principles of the Good Friday Agreement in the EU withdrawal bill.

Parliament voted 313 against, 48 in favour.

The DUP has got Westminster to abolish  the BelfastAgreement/GFA!

It will be gone by Brexit Day, March 2019

There’s no depths England will not stoop to as they over-ride other people’s rights. Ireland North and South held referendums to approve the GFA – the Republic even altered its Constitution to ensure it was passed

Comes as no surprise to the Scots who saw their hopes of maintaining devolution status eliminated on “usually” –  one word in the Sewell Convention 

What now for Irish Republicans/nationalists and Scottish nationalists? 

What now for the EU and International Treaties bearing the UK’s signature?
