Letter to The Editor - Our own self-esteem depends considerably on the dignity of the mother country
To The Age Eurosceptics in the UK House of Commons should resist last minute attempts to coerce them into voting for Mrs May's pseudo-Brexit deal ("Resistance to 'rubbish' plan softens", 18/3). They should recall how the Irish got their constitutional freedom by not compromising with their fatally tainted British overlords. What is now needed at Westminster is the unyielding integrity that was shown a century ago by Eamon de Valera and Daniel Mannix. It's surprising how little public discussion there is in Australia about the ongoing betrayal of the British people by politicians and the UK establishment. Our own self-esteem depends considerably on the dignity of the mother country; and the sabotage of Brexit is a wound in our own national soul.
