Priti Patel’s comments are outrageous. A first world county threatening food shortages to a friendly neighbour is unbelievable but to a Nation effected so greatly by your colonisation and the Great Famine; your comments could be borderline a hate crime.
Simple - Apologise.
Respect Irish History and choices.
I’m Irish living in the UK, working in the NHS, a role I adore, for an organisation I care more about than our current government. These comments are hurtful and show a real lack of respect for The Republic of Ireland. After many years I no longer feel welcome.
