Some golden handshakes going on in the Irish government at the minute… some jobs for the boys lol.. brilliant set up going on
You don't have to specify that it's the Irish gov, just mention the government. We are Irish, this is Ireland, not Britain, France or Germany, the default government is the Irish government.
i.e. if you consider that Michael D is your president.

Yeah, the same Irish government that turned a blind eye to the atrocities that went on in the north of the island, that Irish government that was glad to partition the country. They seem a lovely bunch to be fair
Nordies have long memories and grievances aplenty for events which happened 100 years ago ;D 
Is Michael D  your president or not?
When it comes to referring to the government, I'd refer to them as the ('effin) government for better or for worse, if I am referring to a foreign government I'd name the country -  French, British etc.
There is no way that I would refer to the British government as the government.

The north want no part of a 32 county independent republic,

too wedded to a status quo which suits them just fine   ::)

You talk some shite.

Unbelievable. Seems to have seen one or two nationalist posts that offended him so we’re all the same now and more or less unionists. Absolute relentless bollocks.

If Boris goes so will the cabinet of muppets. Brexit is damaging the UK economy. OWC is powering ahead of England.
Brexit might be seriously adjusted eg Single Market when Boris goes.

If only the EU would abolish exclusive sports rights.

It's clearly not in the consumers interest to have to pay several subscriptions to services to see matches in the same competition.

That'd put the DUP in a real bind, as many of their voters would see a real tangible benefit to EU rules and regs - they're saving 40-50 quid a month on a separate BT/Sky/Premier Sports sub.

Shít is going to get real for Boris and Truss if the EU start hitting UK manufacturing...

Lord Bamford won't be long off the phone if he can't get parts for his diggers....

This is basically all about jockeying for places in the Tory party.

And their reasons for doing so would seem to be to create a smokescreen that shields embezzlement and fraud of increasingly outlandish levels, from the front pages.

Exactly 100% correct, also they want to push as hard and deep into a fuckup as they can because invariably things will self correct to some degree down the line if a Lib/Lab/SNP coalition ever get in, as much damage as you can now so that any new administration will waste years inching it back, it'll never return to anything close to what it was pre-Brexit or any of the soft Brexit damage limitation alternatives, like Thatcher previously, do so much wrecking that it can't possibly be undone, and line the pockets of your conies and elites when doing it

Tariffs imposed on Scottish Whiskey? That's Scotland who voted to remain, on the surface that sounds like a brainless sanction.

I listened to Sammy in a debate this morning on ulster radio, it was mentioned to him that the Wright Bros chairperson? came out strongly in favour of the NI protocol and obviously stated that they have made huge contracts all over the EU. Sammy said they could have made those contracts without the protocol in place by using the trade agreement in place.  Not mentioned was that signing the protocol allowed for the trade agreement to be put into place. Otherwise the Wright bros ability to fulfill contracts would be burdened by paperwork and probable tariffs making them less competitive.

Not so brainless if you play the long game. Scottish Indy 2.0 has been launched.

Was Lord Frost of 20/20 hindsight and not taking blame for the shít deal he agreed to not something in the Scots Whisky association or the likes?

I see your point,  the perception that traditional Scotland business is being punished as a result of British gov shenanigans.  But somehow I doubt the EU could be in secret cahoots with the SNP.
