How dare the Brits do something so stupid?….Post Script

It is sometimes very difficult to define what being British means:   Do you have to be English, Welsh or even Irish to be British?   It’s is very unsatisfactory.

The answer to that question is of course Yes. Don’t believe me?  When the English One Day International team take the field today in the cricket World Cup Final their captain, Eoin Morgan,  is an Irish citizen with a Welsh surname and a British passport.   If ever you needed an example of the complex interrelations across the Irish Sea  look no further.

One final question. If he should lead England to victory I wonder if Leo Varadkar will honour him?
