Don't be fooled, a Brexit would be a total nightmare for Ireland
It is hard to recall a time in recent decades when the politics of our neighbour has been in such turmoil.
One in 12 Westminster MPs don't want to be there. They are the Scottish Nationalists, who won nearly every seat in a nation that in some ways has already made the psychological break with Britain.
A mere handful of the 229 opposition Labour Party MPs support their leader, Jeremy Corbyn. With his hard-left views shared by only a small fringe of the British population, he is unelectable. That fact, along with his views, will prevent Labour becoming a cohesive force as long as he remains leader.
