Letters to the Editor

John Bruton, in his article on Brexit (Irish Independent, February 22), states that British Prime Minister Theresa May's terms for Brexit will do incalculable damage to our island - politically, emotionally and economically.

Mr Bruton is thus at one with the former British PM Tony Blair in urging the British electorate to change its mind.

Alas for them both, Mr Blair and Mr Bruton have now got their answer in the rural Cumbrian seat of Copeland, where for the first time since 1982 a governing party has taken a seat from the opposition, thus endorsing Mrs May's leadership and her enthusiasm for Brexit.
