Corbyn Helped Good Friday Agreement

Jeremy Corbyn welcomed the deal and, along with the vast majority of Westminster MPs, supported it by voting in favour of the Northern Ireland Act in July 1998 and saying: “We look forward to peace, hope and reconciliation in Ireland in the future.” Indeed, in response to Bill H`s previous comment, JC voted against the Anglo-Irish agreement because at the time it did not concern the paramilitaries and the treaty was effectively rejected not only by Sinn Fein, but also by many unionists. As a result, it has failed to put an end to paramilitary violence in the province. He believed that the agreement strengthened rather than weakened the border between the six and 26 counties. Hence his opposition. Interestingly, even Corbyn`s members make no attempt to justify his vote against the 1986 Anglo Irish Agreement with Enoch Powell and Ian Paisley. Unfortunately, his attachment to the dogma of a “united Ireland” has surpassed his commitment to peace in Ireland. The peace that the AIA has achieved may be far from ideal, but, my God, it is an improvement in violence before. Anthony, please you can delete your embarrassing article and our night now that it turns out you are bad. Maybe stay talking about comics, because you`re good at it. What people don`t understand is that Jeremy Corbyn was part of the peace process when he started working, the Conservatives didn`t want a Labour MP to take responsibility for the peace process, and then, after saying they had no talks with the terrorists, supplanted Corbyn and said he would deteriorate their conversations and he wouldn`t help, then, with the recognition of the peace process. Please, let`s do it right and stop denying a good man`s name! Corbyn voted against and opposed Parliament and said: “We believe the deal strengthens rather than weakens the border between the six and 26 counties, and those of us who want to see a united Ireland reject the deal for that reason.” The deal – which involved London, Dublin and the parties in Northern Ireland – has had a significant impact on reducing sectarian violence and is widely seen as the end of the period of violence, known as riots. Unlike the author of this article, I have seen first-hand how the peace process is really progressing.

My wife worked for JC for 17 years and accompanied him on many occasions in Ireland (North & South). Unfortunately, Anthony contravenes most of the facts. It was not Blair`s entry into office that broke the traffic jams, but a statement by a Tory minister, Brooke, who said: “Britain has no selfish interests in Ireland and is ready to talk about peace” that it started. At the same time, John Hume and Gerry Adams had both begun, under much criticism, discussions about what a ceasefire might be and negotiations.
