Brexit opportunity for Republic to rejoin UK

The sincerity of Theresa May, Britain's Prime Minister, should not be taken lightly, when she said she is a devout believer in delivering a fair and just society, for the people of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Surely this is a moment of opportunity to offer the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland an invitation to rejoin Britain?

The level-headed people of the present 26 counties of Ireland who possess any common sense must ask themselves if or when (where it is fair to assume, it's more when than if ) the European Union collapses, where do they go?

People like Gerry Adams and Nicola Sturgeon are hoodwinking the electorate by having the audacity that beggars imagination of mentioning the very words of 'national independence' when at the same time they are devout believers in EU membership, with their countries being governed by twenty seven foreign nations.

Should Ireland accept an invitation to join Britain, it would be the greatest beneficiary, for besides the economic benefits, the people of the 32 counties of Ireland would come together, and who could object to that?
