The President of the United States is one of those tedious Americans who insist that they are Irish because of some distant ancestor. No Joe, you are a yank and your romanticised and ill-informed views of what many of us call “the old country” wrecked appalling damage and great bloodshed on the British isles for many years.
Joe never explicitly supported the IRA but he often condemned the wicked Brits in the bad old days of the troubles As the IRA went around murdering women, nuns, babies, grandmothers and grandfathers, priests and the rest old Joe never once said this is wrong. Irish Americans of the Biden vintage saw acts like that through rose tinted spectacles and never condemned them. Indeed, Biden was instrumental in getting the evil, blood-soaked old bastard Gerry Adams a visa to tour the USA. That helped swell the coffers of Noraid the US fund raising arm of the IRA.
Now Biden is President and in between trying to remember what day of the week it is and which way to wear his diapers he has opined that the British must not do anything to threaten peace in Northern Ireland by trying to undo the hated Protocol with the EU. This ridiculous piece of paper which the idiot Boris Johnson should never have agreed to places restrictions on the flow of goods between two parts of the same country, that is to say Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain. It is the EU insisting on these crazy controls which do, whatever the liar Johnson says, put a border in the Irish Sea.
Imagine if Canada insisted on restricting the flow of goods into Alaska and if Boris Johnson suggested that in resisting this the USA threatened peace in North America. Biden would laugh at him and the yanks would be outraged at British meddling making lots of jokes about 1776 and all that. Yet that is what is happening here and much of the mainstream media and, natch the BBC, is taking old sleepy Joe seriously.
Our prime Minister should use all his diplomatic skills to very publicly tell the Plastic Paddy Biden to go feck himself. Northern Ireland is British and the USA has no more right to meddle in British affairs than the Brits have to set the price of tea in Boston.
