Some words yesterday from a local Tory ex-town mayor seen on Twitter.

I am sure that the Republic of #Ireland could form a customs union with the UK, independent of its one with the EU-26. It would be great to see greater union between the two states in the British Isles, which have a lot in common with each other.

I'm absolutely speechless. It's really hard to even know where to start, it's so wrong. Quite apart from the Good Friday Agreement, what part of "Union" in "European Union" doesn't he understand? It's almost (but not quite) as offensive as when Humphreys on the R4 Today program last week challenged the Irish Europe minister that Ireland should leave the EU and “throw in their lot with this country.”.
