DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4155* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 22 Mar 19

Re History: This was an amusing snippet amonst everything going on last night -
#HannanIrishHistory was trending after pro-Brexit Tory Mr Hannan used Ireland to make a point about the EU in a comment article.

In particular, he suggested Fianna Fail had won every Irish election between 1932 and 2008, when in fact the liberal-conservative party Fine Gael was in power on six occasions during the period.

When the accuracy of his article was questioned, Mr Hannan said "historians necessarily have different takes on the same event", adding: "Please try to accept that yours is not the only interpretation."

Another example of the unrelenting search for accuracy and understanding we have come to expect from some of the leading Brexiteers, like Hannon and "Dover" Raab.
