What the Brexit referendum forgot

Please watch this, particularly if you still believe that Brexit is the right thing to do. The testimony from Alan Black will bring tears to your eyes.
It is quite clear that the impact on the Good Friday Agreement was ignored during the referendum. Even with the backstop there are risks to peace - without the backstop those risks are far higher. As someone who vividly remembers the London bombings in the '80s, which can only have been a microcosm of what was happening in NI, I really don't want to see us go back there.

I'm not a great fan of the EU. I don't believe it should be necessary to be a part of it, it goes against my belief in localism, my dislike of free trade and globalisation - however it has brought benefits and peace has been one of them. That's quite a big benefit too.

Boris Johnson is threatening to break the law at the end of October. If he does so I hope he goes to jail for a long time and that whoever replaces him can sort out the mess that he is creating.
