    Let me tell you this. You will not survive if you allow bureaucrats to rule you like the new Nobility and use you and other Europeans as there new serf population. While at the same time they import non stop new serfs from the Middle East and North Africa. Because you all aren’t replacing yourselves because of a lack of children. While you let the USA protect you so you can have every welfare program in the world. This can only end in blood spilling. Or you will end up as bones in a museum. You pick.

    When it comes to you not having a vote in Brexit, so what? You're not British, unless you want to be.

    You glibly talk about ‘Irish independence’ and describe the brutal war of independence in glowing terms as a ‘fight for ‘Irish freedom’ from Britain (betraying us and the Irishmen fighting in the trenches DURING A WORLD WAR) yet you moan about the fact you didn’t have a vote in the UK referendum. NO SHIT. You’re not British anymore. Lol
    Ireland achieved independence through murder, terrorism and civil war.
    The UK achieved independence through democracy and the ballot box.
    This could all be resolved if Ireland signed a free trade deal with the uk. Boom easy. Oh wait, that’s right you have no say! Youre tied to the single market! Now be a good little EU colony and do what you’re told by your foreign masters! (Lol @the irony) makes the years of horror and suffering seem even more pointless..

    My mum was watching the Jeremy Vine show (she hates him but she's been watching the program since Matthew Wright), they were debating Brexit and Northern Ireland and there was a caller who honestly said "If you remove the Catholics, Northern Ireland voted for Brexit". There's just one problem, those "Catholics" are BRITISH CITIZENS who had a right to make their voice heard. Like Ruddy, I don't want to see a return to violence in Northern Ireland, but the Tories are in denial about the consequences of their use of extremist language and Labour needs to get its act together.

    I live in northern ireland, in the south of county down, and that plea for unity really hit home to me, we're all so tired of Brexit, and the rest of the uk doesn't seem to care that northern ireland is getting dragged along so badly.

    A united ireland is the only solution


    Remember that the European community it's a ECONOMIC union, and not a POLITICAL union; so better for the banks and companies but bad for the people, (not because a company is wealth is likewise for the people). Here in Spain, we are ruled by Germany and France, like the rest of Europe; so do you really want that? We don't have the freedom to make our own economics. Rules are set from outside our country, just for the sake of their own economies.

    England tuck away Wales and Scotland. The last six counties of Ireland is no good to England now. Since England is leaving the EU. It's time to give back the last six counties. And it'll be a change of freedom for Ireland. And Ireland will need a new flag of Ireland too. When that happens.

    I agree completely with that last statement that you left off with... these are troubling times, and it feels like everything that we've taken to be normal happenings with regards to world affairs has just been uprooted by everything going on. Whatever happens, I hope that you are not personally affected too much, and that Brexit isn't absolutely detrimental to the economies of the UK and Ireland. Regardless, I will continue to support your channel for the incredible educational content it provides, as I learn something new from each one. :)
