Letter to the Editor: The Irish question must be answered

Firm and friendly looks to be the way with UK PM Boris “Pro Rogue” Johnson, as he decides about defying parliament and breaking the law, or with accepting a withdrawal agreement (he has all along had available a 585-page agreement reached with the EU 27 regarding the UK leaving).

He can break the law in Westminster and crash-out and if he somehow remains PM he will be one of a “third country” without a withdrawal agreement.

However matters about the island of Ireland must be settled; they had already been provided for.

We have had the Belfast agreement for 21 years and further agreement among the 27 and the UK in the EU giving consideration to the wellbeing of the North, about the border, regarding the island of Ireland and the EU and the UK post-Brexit.

Brexiteers have had a “good campaign” up to now.

Three years since the referendum result they are meeting opposition that could be called determined — six weeks ahead of Brexit.

Supremacism sucks, we know.
