The man who really made Brexit possible, Nigel Farage, made himself available on one of those “pay a celeb to send a message” apps. And, he recorded one of himself cheering on the Irish Republican Army.
“This message is for Brian Ó Céileachair, Brexiteer, and I hope you have a great birthday. This comes from your good friend Aidan. Now, it’s a bit early in the day, so all I’ve got, actually, is coffee. But I hope you enjoy a few pints with the lads tonight. Up the ’Ra!”

For those who don’t speak in Hiberno-Anglais, it’s almost like a sports cheer. “Up the Dubs” is a cheer for Dublin. “Up the Ra” is a cheer for the Republican Army, the one that conducted all those bombings in the Troubles.
I’m surprised that he wouldn’t have been able to figure it out. Anyway, my guess is Brian Ó Céileachair is interested in a very different kind of Brexit.
