Seems bizarre but arch Brexiteers, Leave.EU have relocated their offices to Waterford.

Yes, that Waterford, the one in Ireland, the Ireland that’s in the EU.

It seems the hypocrisy of the organisation that professes to hate all things European knows no bounds. And their motive for returning to Europe?

Now that we’ve been cast out they can’t keep the “.eu” internet address.

Having driven the UK’s ‘liberation’ from the EU they have discovered they can no longer keep the European domain suffix unless they shifted to a member state – the irony.

No surprise really, the horrible Jacob Rees-Mogg took time out from driving us out of Europe to shift his hedge fund to Dublin.

But it raises the prospect of the South becoming a brass plate of convenience for companies and privileged individuals who want to cling to the benefits of being European while condemning the rest of us to the consequences of isolation.

It comes as the DUP continue to wash their hands of all responsibility for Brexit.

Their latest gambit is to scare the bejaysus out of us by claiming hospitals will run out of food because of the sea border which they imposed on us.

Of course things will settle down, supply chains will be restored, the irony is the problems inflicted on us by Leavers will be sorted by organisations who warned of the dangers of leaving.

Put simply the chaos inflicted on us by the DUP can be summed up by a visit to my local convenience store last weekend.

By the time I got to the checkout I had lemons from Portugal, an avocado from Spain, frozen prawns from Vietnam but I couldn’t buy a lettuce from Donaghadee!

Nice job lads.
