Brexit and the back­stop

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – Fr Joe McVeigh ac­cuses the Dublin Gov­ern­ment of be­tray­ing the “na­tion­al­ist peo­ple in the north­ern six coun­ties” over Brexit and the back­stop (Novem­ber 8th). Is he re­fer­ring to the same peo­ple who voted en masse for a party which vol­un­tar­ily chooses not to ex­er­cise its in­flu­ence in the only par­lia­ment which can ac­tu­ally de­feat Brexit? Those vot­ers and their party have al­lowed the DUP tail to wag the Con­ser­va­tive dog, and yet Fr McVeigh blames Dublin. Clearly, whilst he can­not bring him­self to use the term North­ern Ire­land, he has no dif­fi­culty em­ploy­ing north­ern irony. – Yours, etc,

KEVIN O’SUL­LI­VAN, Let­terkenny, Co Done­gal.
