Your correspondent Peter Hill is gung ho about the success of Brexit - deal or no deal. The snag is that our Disunited Kingdom is now split down the middle. Our remain Prime Minister converted to leave has done her level best to sort out the wishes of the 52% but, after two years of talks, things are at a pretty pass. She has failed miserably and MPs are taking over to see what they can do.
In addition, two of our kingdoms voted leave and the other two voted remain. From last week's excellent Radio 4 programme called 'Brexit and Ireland: What's at Stake?', about 30% of N Irish voters vote DUP that is propping up London's government and there are about equal numbers of English nationalists in N Ireland wanting to remain with England, as there are republicans wanting nothing done to distance themselves from the Republic of Ireland. Ireland and the border barely got a look in three years ago in the referendum campaign. We now learn that this matter is a major stumbling block to Brexit. A week or two ago, dissident republicans exploded a car bomb in Derry/Londonderry. It seems that they are getting very on edge about English nationalists in their own community and in England voting for Brexit that may destabilise the twenty year old Peace Agreement that brought sensible compromise, a cessation of violence and Paisley and McGuinness being called the Chuckle Brothers they got on so well in government.
Will Brexit now bring about the 'Troubles, Part 2' in N Ireland? Are we all a good deal wiser about a break up that may have deadly consequences for N Ireland, in particular? I, certainly, am better informed.
