To fuck or be fucked… that’s the question
To recap, in 2016 the British voter was asked whether the border with the EU were to remain open or closed. A question, by the way, which had already been decided upon by the British government in 1998 – the only land border with the EU was to remain open… forever.
So, I guess we can agree that holding the referendum in the first place was superfluous – if not, pretty stupid.
Therefore, the real conundrum now is: are we going to walk back the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, or the outcome of the referendum? Or, to put it in comprehensible modern English for the average voter, pretty much impervious it seems to argument: are you going to fuck the Irish or are you going to… go fuck yourself?
