I am getting very tired of the two main topics of news these days.
All we hear about is the Virus and Brexit.
Brexit has been dragging on for years now, but it seems to be having a particular resurgence lately. As I predicted many moons ago there is a major problem with Norn Iron being part of Ireland but not part of the EU. The Unionists don’t want to be treated any differently from Britain but no one wants the border to return. Deadlock.
On the Virus front, the Powers The Be are pissing their pants because there cases are rising despite 90% of the population being needled. What is causing the numbers to rise? Well, apparently it’s because we are too close to the UK!
It’s strange how a lot of our problems are caused by our proximity to the UK?
Well, I have a very simple solution.
I suggest we dynamite all the border crossings, up anchor and sail south. The gap left by the absence of Norn Iron would very conveniently hook us onto the Brest Peninsula in France.
Let’s look at the advantages…
Of course there is the weather. Moving south would give us much warmer weather. Who can argue against that?
One of the biggest benefits would be the access to the continental mainland. I could go on holidays in France without the tedious and expensive ferry crossing. A short ferry crossing between Rosslare and Bordeaux would be an alternative quick access to the best spots. Lorries too would have direct access to Europe thereby solving the Brexit nightmare of bureaucracy.
Donegal would actually prosper, though they might miss their normal damp miserable weather. We could let them keep Daniel O’Donnell as a consolation.
The Unionists would have nothing to whinge about and can beat their Lambeg Drums to their heart’s content in peace.
We would be well clear of disease ridden UK.
I think it’s a brilliant idea?
