When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure 'tis like a morn in spring. In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing. When Irish hearts are happy, all the world seems bright and gay, And When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away.

From The Guardian: The roadblock hard Brexiteers can't drive around: Ireland these three comments:

Spot on. Look at this comment from last week's Sunderland Echo and you'll see why England and the UK were never compatible.

"There you go another supporter of Europe with their blinkers on, OF COURSE we can build cars, Are you that nieve that you don't realise that "Import Tarrifs" work both ways, they charge us we charge them. We import more than we export, we will be the winners, As for your "No Merchant Fleet" comment, we can still build ships in the UK ypu know and that will bring more jobs for "OUR PEOPLE" we will also not have millions of people from the EU comming here and taking all of the jobs, WIN, WIN for us I say. As for your comment saying we should should let the Japanese Atrocities rest as it was 75 years ago and we should be thankful that we have an ally in Japan, GET REAL MAN, the Japanese have never been our ally, all they have ever done is dictate what they want and threaten to leave. ALLY MY AR*E I would rather trust a fox with my chickens, But thats OK you think its all right for our relatives to be Tortured and Starved to death by the Japanese and the you want to cosy up to the Murdering Barstewards, NOT ME MATEY, NOT ME. ou say we should be thankful to be part of the largest market in the worl EUROPE, are you kidding, most of Europe is Bankrupt, that why they are all over here taking BRITISH JOBS. When we leave the EU we will be the WINNERS, Oh Happy Days".

I prefer statistics to anecdotes, but I suppose this comment is representative of more than half of all Brexiters views. Enjoy your future without us, you lucky buggers.

"I wish people would stop talking about problems with the Irish border. The only problems would be if the EU or their lap dogs the Irish were to create them.

"All Britain has to do is to say there will be no border. There will be no customs post, no tariffs on imports from the south, no nothing. Not even a pat-down. We will carry on just as before.

"Why cannot the pathetically stupid Theresa May not see this? If the EU or their lap dogs the Irish say there must be then let them build a wall or a moat or a trench or an anti-tank ditch or a mine field and then all the expense and opprobrium will be on the shoulders of the EU or their lap dogs the Irish.

"What on earth are these people arguing about?"

As Mogg and IDS have said just recently, Europe needs us much more than we need it, and will eventually agree to anything and everything asked for in order to survive both economically and culturally.

All we need to be, is very hardnosed, threaten to leave with no agreement, and sooner than later Brussels will yield to all our demands.

May and Davis need to keep their nerve, call the bluff and the EU will concede.
