Someone needs to remind that it's 2018 not 1848. You don't have an empire. You're not a major player. You don't get to dictate to Ireland or the EU. Learn your place in the 21st century.

Hey good people of the UK. Do you want to turn friends into enemies? Vote for Priti Patel. Threatening food shortages against a neighbour whose population was halved by genocidal policy during a famine. That's how you turn friends into enemies.

Dear Ireland. Most of us think this woman is a joke. And not a funny one. On her behalf, sorry.

Regardless of party politics, anyone who voted for should hang their head in shame. All eyes now on for firm action to be taken. We cannot allow members of Government to bring the UK into disrepute in this manner.

So Priti Patel picked up tips on her dodgy secret Israel trip, that led to her sacking re how to cause conflict, bully neighbours /civilian populations, that she now wants to use on Ireland. Tory party sewer reaches new depths.

Hard to believe was once Secretary of State for International Development, a role requiring a modicum of intelligence and compassion. Not for this one though. Rotten to the core, she will say and do whatever it takes to shimmy up the greasy pole.

Not just moronic but utterly ignorant of history of how the Brits (well, the English) starved the Irish previously. This is beyond insensitive, she really must be called out and rebuked.

Threatening Ireland with food shortages? What other genius 19th century ideas does have to save no-deal Brexit Britain? The restoration of the British Raj perhaps, to ensure the UK retains at least one major trading partner?

When “threatening food supply” to a Country, who’s population (under British rule) was decimated by a famine, becomes a legitimate political strategy you have to wonder about the Tory Party

I realise some Conservatives are happy with cutting off benefits for the disabled and increasing the use of food banks in the uk, but reintroducing famine as a tool of state policy? Ireland?????? How morally bankrupt are these people?

It seems perfectly acceptable to say that Britain will experience food shortages in the event of (along with no medicines etc) but to suggest Ireland might also suffer as a result is considered outrageous

Bloody hell, has got me agreeing with ... Utterly shameful comments by Patel. Completely beyond what is acceptable and I think clearly shows the argument on has been lost.

Be nice if the BBC reported a senior Tory wanting to starve the Irish but since its not got a negative Corbyn angle they'll ignore the fuck out of it.
