Brexit is war, not a nervous breakdown
Sir - Some of Colm McCarthy's statements (Sunday Independent, December 31) in relation to Brexit and the EU are open to challenge.
He characterises Brexit as Britain "having a nervous breakdown", and the €85bn bailout, which resulted from the most calamitous collapse in this country since independence, as "a straight-forward stick-up".
Brexit is no nervous breakdown. It is a declaration of economic war by the UK on the countries of the rest of the EU and especially on the people of this former colony.
