Thank you Ireland:

“Where is the humility? Where is the sense of them listening to the people’s concerns?” the Sinn Féin spokesman asked on Irish radio.

Who would have thought I would ever agree with a Sinn Fein spokesman? (I clearly recall checking under my car, every drive, for IRA bombs.)

So will the EU respond by genuinely reforming to restore sovereignty, diversity and democracy to the nations of Europe, or will they blunder on, perhaps illegally, with further sophistry?

I think this will get worse before it gets better but, tonight, champagne.
