    Indeed. Your footnote reminds me of George Orwell's "1984".
    "In times of deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act".
    We can hardly call a spade a spade or the PC briGAYde will moan.

    Fianna Failure could not even organize a booze-up in a brewery.

    You want our state to engage in the sort of vacuous nationalistic gobsh1tery that has paralysed the UK body politic?

    I'd much refer that they focused on practicalities and reality like they have been doing pretty well of late.

    Terry Leyden points the finger in the opposite direction on that one. Now if it was tapping an auld phone or the like he'd be on firmer terrain.

    Do you mean the PIRA (the IRA that many claim doesn't exist any longer)? Or one of the other ones?

    And why would anyone pay for a criminal organisation like any of the IRAs to police the border?

    With respect, all of the posters here are missing the point, which is - putting a hard border in actually RESTORES our national territory.

    A little-bruited consequence of the GFA is that we ended up with no national territory. As it turns out, that was presaged by Clinton-era articles like this from 1994;

    Present at the (Dis)integration: Deterritorialization and Reterritorialization in the New Wor(l)d Order - Tuathail - 1994 - Annals of the Association of American Geographers - Wiley Online Library

    The increase in our suicide rate is consistent with Deleuze's warnings about Deterritorialization. The issue of whether we have a country at ll is dealt with by Hassan Ahmed here;

    http://cosmosandhistory.org/index.ph...wFile/660/1102

    In short, we don't, as the Montevideo convention requires a national territory, and abilities to create law and have a settled population we have conceded to the EU.

    The fact is that the colonization we've experienced for the past 20 years has to date been subtle and effective. Thank heavens for idiots like the Brexiteers to reverse it
