As was noted over on the Cedar Lounge Revolution, Brexit is not just causing chaos in the politics of Britain. It is having a decidedly odd effect on the politics of Ireland too. Apparently we are living in a post-post-Civil War era where Fine Gael is morphing into Fianna Fáil Nua and Fianna Fáil is changing into Sean-Fhine Gael. Or something approaching it. From the weekend Sunday Independent:
In an address to his party’s Presidential Dinner, Mr Varadkar also referred to Fine Gael as “the United Ireland Party”.
Last night, senior Fianna Fail sources dismissed Mr Varadkar’s “political” address, but also described his united Ireland comments as “wreckless and feckless”.
What the actual fuck…?
