Last quote by Peter Hain

At this historic moment, Theresa May’s team seems not to grasp the most basic rules of negotiation. Apart from the hard right political trajectory of the government’s Brexit stance, what worries me most is that Theresa May’s team appears to be ignoring almost every one of the rules of negotiation. These are in the DNA of the best British diplomats, who are famed across the world for their creative professionalism – as I witnessed at first hand as a minister.feedback

Sep 29 2017 Brexit
We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Peter Hain is associated, including Angola, USA, and troops. Most recently, Peter Hain has been quoted saying: “Brexit must not lead to the reimposition of a hard border on the island of Ireland. That is non-negotiable. A hard border would damage the economy by restricting trade, and harm the lives of thousands of people who cross it every day. And in doing so it would damage the peace process at a time when power-sharing has never looked so fragile.” in the article Northern Ireland could stay in customs union after Brexit - Verhofstadt.

I thought I’d be the last minister to govern from London. But after the collapse of power-sharing, and now this seismic election result, I’m not so sure.It was an it-will-never-ever-happen moment when, in May 2007, Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness together took power in Northern Ireland’s devolved government.
