Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here's an interesting twist:

IRELAND IS TO get two more European Parliament seats because of Brexit and Sinn Féin is calling on the Irish government to give them to Northern Ireland.

The call was made in a Sinn Féin submission the Constituency Commission which argues that citizens of the six counties of the north should continue to have representation in the European Parliament.

The majority of voters in Northern Ireland voted for the UK to remain in the EU and the border issue has emerged as one of the key stumbling blocks during Brexit negotiations.

Of course, they believe that they would both be Sinn Fein MEPs. Since you'd have to be an Irish passport holder to vote. Cute!
