It's clear the Irish have a religious conflict, similar to all others across the globe. The nations of mainland Europe founded the European Union to rebuild on the principle of peace - see the founding fathers of the EEC. The aggressive expansion into the former Soviet satellite states, so called "New Europe", has weakened not strengthened the union. The Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld administration and now the Trump administration attempt to undermine the economic might of the EU. The UK made a choice, well a slim majority led and misled by British Conservatives, made a choice for BrExit. They believe to be better off as a nation closer to the United States than to mainland Europe. What I read between the lines and watch in debates on the networks has truly amazed me. The British people and its leadership were not integrated into the EU, we don't speak the same language. The MPs have no idea what Europe and the principles of the Four Freedoms stand for. It's a choice to be made, a compromise for survival as a nation with ones neighbours.
A failed integration, not willing to compromise and have the best of both your country and the economics of scale within Europe. Short-sightedness of politics ... playing games instead of taking responsibility and lead a nation. A call for duty ... the parliamentarians and the Tory ministers of #10 went AWOL.
Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
