    The image below says a lot, but the question should be not what we do now, but ‘how on earth did this happen’? So many lies told and still being told by a completely corrupt, self interested government. twitter.com/MollyMEP/statu…

    Hmm, Gaelic speakers, amongst the kindest, most welcoming, most hospitable people, whose homelands you are most likely travelling to, certainly do not deserve your ill conceived, rude, insulting tweet. Have a great trip. twitter.com/Subtact/status…
