Call for EU to create ‘Brexit relief fund’ for Ireland

Call for EU to create ‘Brexit relief fund’ for Ireland:

I happily support this with my taxes. Ireland got into this situation due to no fault of their own!

I wonder how history will remember them?

Has the Good Friday Agreement failed?

Tory MEP Daniel Hannan just went out on twitter, where he promoted an article he wrote for the Telegraph where he claimed among other things:
The Good Friday Agreement has failed

The Good Friday or Belfast Agreement was signed into effect in 1999. 

The graph below shows the amount of people killed in the UK by terrorism per year. Notice something after 1998?

Some of you might be old enough to remember that there were no litter bins on any London stations, or in fact throughout most of the city.

In comparison to the IRA, the 7 July 2005 London bombings that shocked so many, would have been a quiet year! At least when compared to the average people killed in the 70s and 80s.

I am honestly lost for words by the ignorance of Daniel Hannan!
