Remembrance.

This Remembrance Day has an added significance as this year is also the centenary commemoration of the ending of World War One. We can only try to imagine the overwhelming collective sense of sheer relief across Britain and Ireland when the end of that horrendous war was announced.

For many of today's younger generation it has to be even more difficult to understand the collective grief and trauma that afflicted so many families at that time. A century ago was a long time ago.

Is Democracy Endangered? Why I voted Leave.

Is the centre of British democracy endangered? 

By Willie Drennan

Every day, it seems, EU devotees spread their mantra that Leave voters are all thick, under-educated, narrow-minded simpletons who were tricked into voting Leave by manipulative exterior forces.


On the contrary, I reckon the majority of us voted the way we did because we are capable of independent thought and judgement. We did not vote because of any political party, guru, writings on a bus, or campaign group. We voted the way we did in spite of a massive Establishment campaign to keep us all in subservience to an undemocratic System.


Prior to the EU Referendum in June I posted a blog 
explaining why I planned to vote leave. It was perhaps a bit too heavy on detail so here is a summary of my reasons.

Glorious Opportunity: Brexit + Irexit

  It's all the same freedom in the end.


By Willie Drennan.


Throughout history, people on the island of Ireland have battled each other over territory and the right to live in freedom within territory: in conflicts usually instigated by ruling classes; asserting their authority, conquering and dividing to solidify their power and dominance. In conflicts where people had little choice but stand and fight for their relevant freedoms. And still it goes on. No such devious scheme by the ruling classes has ever been more blatantly obvious than the current weaponisation of the Irish Border by the EU masters and their devotees.

Currently on this island many of the establishment's elite are in denial of the existence of logical solutions to any post-Brexit difficulties in Ireland.
