For 4 years the EU have used Ireland as a tool to get their own means in Brexit negotiations. But now it seems with Brexit done, Ireland's usefulness to the EU is over. Just weeks after the Brexit deal done, to cover their own hinds in the fiasco of EU's vaccine roll out, without consulting either Ireland or UK, the EU decided to make a hard border on the island of Ireland; they invoked Article 16 then quick revoked Article 16, without even telling EU member Ireland they were doing it. Ireland it seems, are back at the bottom of the pile now that the EU's finished with Brexit. In decades, nothing but the EU Commission's actions to have united London and Dublin more. I honestly don't care if Ireland are at the bottom of the EU with their usefulness over (that's their prerogative if they want to be in the EU), but it should be known, the EU doesn't care about Ireland.
