The Republic of Ireland today voted 'No' in the vote about its future in the European Union, but it was ironic that Ireland itself is still divided with a border, unlike the nations of the mainland EU.
Speaking from Galway City, Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams said: 'You're expecting the Irish to vote for a borderless existence? And for the most Roman Catholic part of the world to vote for legal abortions? Sure, and Ian Paisley is joining the priesthood next week.'
Some have wondered why Ireland, or even Britain, are actually part of the EU, as they have nothing in common with Europeans and are not even part of the continent, but nobody in either country really cares.
The Leader of the UK Incoherent Party, David Frenchwinedrinker, said :'Look, we know you don't care about Europe, or even know where it is. Where is it?' And others cared even less in Ireland. 'Another Guiness?', commented Edna O'Malley in Dublin, 'isn't Europe where the football is on right now?'
Many have suggested that both Britain and Ireland have more in common with the United States than Europe, and in fact becoming American states would be more logical than pretending to be part of a European superstate, but of course when there's a chance of milking the French and Germans for money, the only country that's better at doing that than Britain is the Republic of Ireland.
