Irish Republicans meet the Queen

Martin McGuinness’s handshake with the Queen will be indeed a historic and symbolic moment. He should do it. The island of Ireland and the island of Britain are both controlled by the unelected banks and the republic of Ireland is in the grips of the European single currency. While Britain is outside the single currency it is largely governed by EU Treaties upon which the British people have not voted. Both Britain and Ireland need to be free of the control of the EU and freed to develop a new set of mutually beneficial economic relationships with each other if that is what is desired. There would be considerable advantages to a new pact between Britain and Ireland based on mutual respect of self determination and independence and co operative trading agreements.
Speaking of the historic handshake moment Gerry Adams said the following wise words:

“As the record of the peace process demonstrates Irish republicans have frequently been prepared to take bold and historic initiatives and risks for peace to break stalemates and find agreements,” he said.

“Sinn Fein is an Irish republican party whose primary political objective is the reunification and independence of Ireland.

“We have a coherent and viable strategy for the achievement of these democratic objectives, including the end of partition and unifying the people of this island through a genuine process of national reconciliation and transformation.”
