Thereís  no hope the  DUP will go back  to Stormont the way things are.

It looks like there  will be no change to the WF , and  according  to Mark carruthers the other night , neither British or Irish  governments  are  keen to reform  power sharing (  or sf/dup  losing their veto)

If thereís going to be no  change to the  WF or power  sharing reform , then what  are we waiting for ?  People   canít sit forever waiting and hoping there will be some sort of resolution  to  get Stormont  going again. Itís not going to happen

Itís  either  Westminster rule, or joint rule.  Whether people  want either of those  or not ,  it has to happen. And it needs to  happen very quickly.

Cats usually dig a hole and then cover it up again. I have a dog and 2 cats. The cats are no bother at all. Feed them and they head off and shit in someone else's garden. ;D  I know people put full water bottles in the garden to deter foxes  might work with cats also.

Thatís the  problem. Theyíre not my  feckin cats. Itís  a neighbours.  Thereís an area  of  the garden with stones , and they seem to  always shite   there , the feckers

Jim says no to Stormont at the TUV Ard fheis

Yet they  have no issue calling   their annual conference their   Ard fheis?

Bizzare  ;)

Jeffrey, Arlene, Sammy, Gregory, Nigel, Emma, Ian Og, Edwin, Givan, Carla, Angry Jim, Bryson, Moore, Kate, Ben Habib. Ben Lowry, Nolan

What a line up? No friends anywhere in the world, no strategy......Lowry wants to go back to 1972 to 1998........they would all love that.

At last the world sees them for the clowns that they are........but how can we all move on despite them wanting to hold this place back to a time 30 years ago?

Ben Lowry did actually say that direct rule worked well in the 1970's. Quite unbelievable.

I  recorded the  program  and watched it last night. I had to pause it  because I thought , nah he didnít just say  that.  I rewind , and  sure enough, he had  just said  it.  Unbelievable. But This is  what  youíre dealing with

Donít you  mean 300  years ago? 

The  British people have moved on . Only unionists in the north.( and those  bigots in Lewes ) behave like they still live  in the  1600ís.

Only 29 against, that is a laughable figure. Honestly thought there would be a sizeable minority that could give some, albeit minor, credence to the DUP position but it's over for them

What's next though, I just don't know. Think the GFA is done, we need to move to a coalition of the willing

Yup, should have  happened  20 years ago.  If Stormont  is to function  in any way , that is what needs to happen . Otherwise , knock it down (I still  need that rubble)

not really a wtf because its what i expected


ireland the 4th largest cocaine consumption in the world

https://www.irishtimes.com/crime-law/2023/03/19/irish-people-joint-fourth-highest-consumers-of-cocaine-globally-says-un/

The cocaine use  is frightening to be  honest

Itís  reckon ed that cocaine use is  in every  town, village and gaa club  in the country.  When you think about it ,  surely the odds are that  those using it are  all around us.... one of our family members, next door neighbour,; some of our local gaa players , a local teacher  teaching our kids,  the nurse taking  looking after  your elderly relative or doing  your blood test,  taxi driver,  shop assistant,  etc. Mad when you think about it

Another own goal, genuinely must take a serious effort to be on the wrong side of everything constantly.

No more negotiations to be had, the Gov't going to force it through regardless.

Touch of arrogance from Mr Donaldson, expecting Sunak and the EU to re-open the talks just to appease him and his ever decreasing cabal.

What now for the Assembly, Is it Joint authority with major inputs from the Irish TŠnaiste?

Well , Iím in need  of some rubble for  a laneway so Iím hoping  they knock down Stormont

Only  thing is , I could no longer complain about  Stormont  never having done anything for me

Itís decision time now for Donaldson and the DUP. I canít see the leadership of the party publicly supporting the WF which could then leave them in an even more perilous position. At every juncture they have managed to make things even worse for themselves as they are petrified of being lundified. I think Peter Robinson is one of the few in the party who has a strategic brain and will recognise the opportunity that the WF offers to unionists. But he is only one of 8 people and the threat of the TUV/LCC/OO axis looms large over any decision to be made.

Thatís it in  a nutshell. The hot potato that is the  unionist leadership . Say no  to everything.  Replace, and repeat

Decision time would suggest that Donaldson has options.
If he has 3 options then he has 3.
If he has 2 options then he has 2.
If he has 1 option then he has no option.

He will reject the WF, and say that he is passing the problem back to Rishi. He will then tell his electorate that Rishi has messed up and Rishi has to find a solution.

Looking like no Stormont for 2 or 3 years.

Conservative Party is the most successful party in World Politics for a reason.. They will string this out and then next year when theyíre out of gov it will be a Labour problem. This is when Labour will probably f**k up and do something thatíll threaten the union and there the conservatives slogan will be run on in the 2028 election to save the Union and our Country vote Tory. Theyíve already started with going after refugees, they know they lost 2024 so itís all about getting back asap

Yup sounds about right

But surely  the Brits  will say to themselves , never vote those Tory b*******s again!!!  I mean , not everyone  was around during  the thatcher years and the  shit that she did.. but by Christ they should remember these Tory  years!

I honestly donít. think United are that further on  than last season.  Still  some  mediocre performances,  and it was the same today until the game  turned  on the handball  incident

Was hoping  United would get City  in  the semi.  The semi is pencilled in  between cityís euro QFwith Bayern and the title decider  with Arsenal.
