Re: Brexit too hot a subject for discussion now ?

How hard is it to have an ancestor born in Ireland, anymore than it would be to have one born in Timbuctu or Swaziland?

Voting in such a way knowing that it would have a massive effect on peeple's lives, knowing it would not affect yours as you had a way of totally avoiding said effects, just cannot be fair .
It has nothing to do with "fair". It is about basic human rights. British citizens have a right to vote. Certain people with Irish ancestry have a right to apply for an Irish passport. Neither right has any effect on the other, and nor should it.

What next? People who vote for a Conservative candidate should be barred from claiming benefits? People who vote for a Labour candidate should be prevented from benefitting from tax cuts?
