Hate people suggesting that Priti Patel is ignorant for threatening to starve the Irish economy to benefit Britain. She knew the EXACT fucking context of those remarks - and she wouldn’t have made them otherwise. Awful, rotten, horrible way to go on. Fuck away off we that..

Statements like that of Priti Patel make me even more glad that I sorted out my Irish citizenship. For solidarity, as well as everything else..
I’m no fan of Priti Patel. And yes the Irish comments were daft. But remainers have told the UK it will starve, thirst, be deprived of medicine, turned into a car park, isolated, told we’ll die, end up going to war, no planes will fly standards my dear snowflakes?.
Worth remembering that before the famine, Ireland’s population was around and it has never recovered. These comments show (once again) nothing but complete ignorance and that brexiteers are hellbent on brexit at any cost no matter who it hurts.
Even Jonathan Swift would find it hard to believe that this ignorant & merciless proposal for leverage against Ireland by PRITI PATEL could be so blatant, crude and callous. 1845 is not a year the Irish will forget. 1.
This week was a good week for Remain. But I end it feeling sick, disgusted, hopeless as ever as I’m reminded again of how incredibly low politics has sunk. How can this country hope to recover when people like Priti Patel get jobs in government? Where’s the basic human decency?.
This has to rank as one of the most obscene, inept and insensitive statements to ever come from a Brexit MP. This is an absolute unadulterated disgrace..
@heidiallen75 I have always said you are an excellent MP but given the vile comments by Priti Patel and Dorries and the rest are acting it will be very difficult for me to vote for you again whilst in the same party.
Priti Patel, whose parents come from a country overly exploited to the point that it suffered incredible famines such as the Bengal Famine of 1943 during the Second World War, wants the UK to threaten the Republic of Ireland with famines. What a time to be alive. #Brexit.
@_michaelbrooks @thejournal_ie We in the UK know that Priti Patel is a hardliner. Also, she was fired from the government for being corrupt and a scumbag.
For somebody whose parents came from Gujarat - an area ravaged by several famines - Priti Patel @patel4witham is mind-bogglingly insensitive/ignorant threatening food shortages in Ireland.
Britain should use risk of food shortages in Ireland to get better Brexit deal, says Priti Patel.
The Great Potatoe Famine resulted in the death of one million Irish ppl. For Priti Patel to claim starving the Irish ppl in the 21st century is a price worth paying in order to save Brexit belies unparalleled ignorance and profound moral depravity..
Britain should use risk of food shortages in Ireland to get better Brexit deal, says Priti Patel | The Independent.
@OxfordDiplomat @patel4witham So Priti Patel just carries the same horrid baton of nastiness and hatred from Charles Trevelyan then. Some things never change..
Reminder: as minister, Priti Patel held secretive unauthorized meetings in Israel and urged for UK aid to be given to al-Qaida in the Golan.
IT is planet do you think you are on Priti Patel ?.
Priti Patel’s suggestion is disgraceful. In another age she would lose the party whip over it. What do you think @MarkLancasterMK ?.
absolute no sensitivity to Irish history Priti Patel is competing with Nadine Dorries for Christmas custard brain. #Brexit.
Reality calling Priti Patel, this is reality Ireland the best country for food security |.
@thejournal_ie Do the people of #Witham #Essex ever feel embarrassed by arrogant Tory Priti Patel MP?.
@OxfordDiplomat This disgusting wagon, Priti Patel, is no stranger to controversy. She is without shame, heart, or intelligence and those who vote for her are to be distrusted with extreme prejudice..
@NIALLfresh @tomdoorley There’s the thing: “Priti Patel” is obviously not an English name. Does she not understand that she’ll be on the first boat back to India when Brexit kicks.
Tory MP Priti Patel suggests using threat of food shortages in Ireland if there is a no-deal Brexit to drop the backstop..
