    The choice is really Northern Ireland's, I don't see what it has to do with Dublin...
    Northern Ireland is not a part of the Republic...

    Dublin has no say in the matter neither does the EU.

    As a citizen of the Republic of Ireland I entirely agree, it is nothing to do with Dublin and the idiots in Brussels/Strasbourg or wherever they are next week.

    Varadkar is just trying to make a name for himself as he is afraid that if he doesn't then Sinn Fein will roll him in the sand.

    Not to mention the fact that he is terrified of the EU allowing beef imports from SA and then having to use Ireland's veto as he thinks the Brussels Junta will then see Ireland as 'bad Europeans' and we would have to go and stand on the naughty step along with the UK, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and everyone else who has incurred the wrath of these megalomaniacs.
