Farage To Travel To Ireland To Promote Irexit
It has been announced that Nigel Farage will travel to Ireland next autumn to promote the cause of an Irish exit from the European Union.
He will attend a conference entitled ‘Irexit: Free to Prosper’ on September 3 next year alongside journalists John Waters and Cormac Lucey and eurosceptic councillor Ames Charity.
Mr Farage has previously stated that Brexit means that the case for an Irish exit of the EU is even more compelling:
“With Brexit, Ireland has an even greater financial imperative to leave the European Union and agree a free trade agreement with Great Britain so that the smooth and full current arrangements continue into the future.”
However, Euroscepticism in Ireland remains weak. According to the last Eurobarometer poll, 88% of Irish people want to remain in the EU.
The cause of Brexit, however, remains inextricably tied to the strength of the EU. So, the good wishes of all of us should go with Mr Farage when he travels to the Emerald Isles this September.
