A British MP from the Shin Flake party has branded Irish Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan "a unionist"...

Sinn Fein MP Chris Hazzard has branded Irish Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan "a unionist" after the minister said the argument for Irish unity should not be combined with Brexit.

On Twitter Mr Flanagan said that "conflating Brexit with Irish unity is unhelpful and misguided".

In response to the Tweet Sinn Fein's South Down MP said that Mr Flanagan was a "unionist".

"His response to growing demand for Irish unity is entirely predictable, he wants to protect the status quo," Mr Hazzard wrote.

After criticism of his Tweet Mr Flanagan said that he stood "four-square behind the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement".

The unionist gammons know they are about to be betrayed again.

May has given them sugared words and their squeals when the knife is applied will be off the scale.

Flanagan. The Shinners don't like him especially since he criticised them for wearing the Lily at Easter.

British MP Brands Irish Minister As A 'Unionist'

when I saw the thread title, I was wondering who was the "British ………...… ahem …...…...MP"
Jacob Rees ………. ahem ……….. Mogg, or some such swivel eyed ol geezer !!!!!

on clicking on the thread title - saw that the OP was one BTB
time for a laugh - this should be fun !!!!

anyway, on reading the OP, discovered that the MP wasn't British at all, at all,
Irish in fact.he's from Co. Down.
just as Irish as myself & ol Bridges.
LOL !!!!!!!!

Nay lad. Westminster is the UKanian Parliament.

Describing it as the British Parliament would exclude the 6 NE counties of Ireland that are (still) included in UKania.
