Posted by Jim on December 9, 2017 By Sinn Fein MP Elisha Mc Callion The people in the north of Ireland voted to remain in the EU.
Yet on 29 March Theresa May signalled to the European Council the British Government’s intention to leave the EU and drag us out.
“The historical evidence for this view was all around, in the circumstances of housing, hunger, emigration, exclusion and language loss.
The cultural freedom allowed was a freedom merely to imitate or ingratiate,” the president said.
“And then when they don’t like what the final compromise is they simply ignore it and don’t implement it. The British Government has been making promises to Irish people for years and then refusing to fulfil them.
She said once the resolution is turned to legal action there can be “no more ambiguity, no more contradictions, no more taking the British Government as their word”.The artwork is a giant bronze acorn which contains letters and poems while the shell is impressed with text and used pencils.“All of the participants in 1916 had come to perceive and recoil from what was a constant theme in the assumptions of the imperialist mind: that those dominated in any colony such as Ireland were lesser in human terms, in language, culture and politics.He said if the British Government’s offer on the border is unacceptable for Ireland, then it will also be unacceptable for the EU.This is a welcome approach which needs to be maintained.
