How Greg O'Shea's victory affects Brexit


When Leo Varadkar first sent three career diplomats (Yevande, Maura and Greg) to break into the Isle of Love, our last best hope for meaningful Anglo-Irish cooperation, it seemed like a long shot.

But what option was there? It was Love Island or infiltration into one of the other British protectorates – Gibraltar, Parks Center in Longford, Blesbridge. Agents 1 and 2 may have failed, but the man known to us as "Greg" has already been distributed all over the UK and co-owns £ 50,000, the sum that will make the richest man in Britain come in October, and it will come in handy when there are border guards who have to be bribed and the diesel purchased from Ra.

In a previous episode, Agent 2 (Maura) fulfilled her own mission – to teach the British public that Irish names are pronounced differently – during a segment where the elderly could visit the island. At first, this reminded me of the lifestyle at Logan's Run, where the youth of a future dystopian town meet the old man, played by Peter Ustinov. At the time, I thought they were ex-racers, outdated by life in the neighborhood, returning to warn their friends not to watch the news when it came out.

In fact, these doomed souls were relatives of the islanders who had come to appreciate the romantic arrangements of their relatives in a way that seemed to me to be unjustifiably supportive, coming from people who grew up with only ground stations.

Highlights included Molly-May agreeing with her lusty relatives that Tommy was "cut by God." ("God has no part in this, Molly-May," I called out.) And the life in which Curtis, the moronic handsome man of Maura, had to repeatedly remind his mother that Irish names had their own pronunciation, at least until October 31, when all bets are off.

"My-yer-ra," she said.

"Maura," Curtis said.

"My-uh-raah," his mother said.
