Ireland's sellout to the EU empire

Published 28/01/2016

It's puzzling that some of the politicians and parties currently scrabbling for ownership of the 1916 Rising can't seem to arrange Ireland's further disappearance into a European empire quickly enough. How, exactly, does that fit in with their "republican" principles?

Could any of them please enlighten me?
