A 'Brexit' will not answer the old British Question

LETTERS to the Editor are the very place to think the unthinkable and say the otherwise unsayable. That is why they have so many readers ( a lot more than this poor column).
It is also why this column reads them. A recent one said the well-nigh unsayable about 'Brexit' (the possibility that Britain might leave the EU). That is: might it be better for the EU, even for Ireland, if the Brits did depart?
It must be admitted that the writer, from the Irish Political Review Group, was the staunchest of staunch Europhiles. He is worried that the attempts to keep the UK in the union will damage the traditional Irish policy of support "for deepening EU and Eurozone integration".
