UK is sneezing - so Ireland would be wise to keep its distance
Some commentators believe that Theresa May's humiliating kick in the tail in last week's UK election will mean a soft Brexit, which would be better for Ireland.
The more deluded even believe the UK might reverse Brexit and stay in the EU. This is more of the same wishful thinking by the same media and political elites who have so far predicted everything wrong and still can't or won't understand the changing circumstances.
After being given a strong majority, democratic mandate, and a self-destructive Labour as opposition, Mrs May has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with no majority or mandate, and managed to make Jeremy Corbyn look a sane and competent leader.
