Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I don't read the right wing media, but I remember very clearly the almighty stink Corbyn caused by inviting convicted IRA members to visit the HoC a few weeks after the Brighton bombing. That was a very long way beyond the pale. You can fact check that all day.
This feels like the last US election again, there's someone you don't want to vote for, and someone you won't vote for. I just can't understand why one of the two doesn't step aside for the sake of their party.

Is the use of beyond the pale a reference to the bombers homeground?
