Karen Bradley again reiterating today that there will be no cameras on the border. Are they planting the seeds for a customs partnership in the north only. Surely it would be 100% impossible for any technology to work without infrastructure. Even as light as cameras. The maxfac option would be impossible to police and I just can't see May agreeing to a UK wide customs partnership.

Over the DUP's dead body. They will exit the EU on the same terms as the rest of the mainland. At this stage it's either going to implode dramatically for the Tories rather like the Nazis at the end of WWII, or May will finally grow a pair, tell the loony right to f&ck off and try for the 'third way' as reported in today's RTE news.
May is lining it up for the third way - she'll paint it as the only way to protect the union (ref: her comments on the border poll).

Supposed anti-semitism isn't acceptable, but anti-catholic, anti-irish, anti-abortion seems very acceptable.

Lololol the absolute state of you trying to draw an equivalence there.

The old saying of a tight arse Scot or Yorkshireman is laughed at, but when it's a jew... Oh, you can't say that!  ::)

As stated above, I'm not very familiar with the stereotype of the "money grabbing Scotsman" being used to systematically persecute the Scots (up to and including genocide) over the centuries. Perhaps you could refresh my memory?

It's not just the stuff the Israeli state has done, it's the stereotypes like the tight Scotsman that can't even be spoken of. All attempts of reference to the Jewish people is lumped into the big anti-semitism net.

A tight Jew or a drunken Irishman. Why is one an acceptable stereotype and one not?
Are you pretending to be stupid or are you genuinely stupid?

I think I know the answer to this one, actually, having had the misfortune to read a range of your infantile posts on different subjects.
As someone who earlier on this thread alluded to the ass-shaking of the females in the Cyprus act, iíd be careful when you try to link threads. What about treating women as second class citizens? Ok to objectify them when singing on the stage? Nothing to do with singing, lyrics etc.

Whilst most commentators didn't expect a rise today, some still thought it would be possible.

Suits me, I'll be looking for a mortgage in the next month or two.

You can do Lake Garda now from Belfast - we're going for a week in June.

Also agree that Portugal would be dead handy, and you could do a two-centre by going up from Algarve towards Lisbon - just back from a weekend in a town on the outskirts (Cascais - 40 mins outside by regional train) and it was absolutely beautiful.

We were in Lisbon at the weekend and visited the Eurovision Village, great craic - live music on the stage, beers and sangria in the sun, and a few sponsor stands to visit (including one with two Teslas that you could sit in).  Police absolutely everywhere.

Martyís breaking out the Baileys early he says.

I have done a fair bit of financial work in the insurance industry. Insuring underwriters (obviously) give better rates to firms that donít use accident management companies.
My OH just closed out a claim where someone went into the back of him, admitted liability, and he managed to get back the full value of the car he had paid for about 3 months previously. He didnít take a hire car or claim for personal injury, and I think that helped him recover the full value.

That makes me sick if it is reported right.
I have personal experience of kidney transplants and associated grief. Suing the state??

On another matter does Buchanan look and sound like Brian Dooher's da?

 ;D Don't see it myself.

My sister wanted to get a postal vote in WT - I personally handed the form to the electoral office in Belfast, but it was denied because her signature at the age of 35 is not the same as her signature at the age of 18.  Seriously, is there no better way to determine eligibility?

I'm having lessons at the minute and one of the girls in the group was saying that she's been keeping an eye on gumtree for second hand ones, but they disappear really really quickly.

Another girl got a set of second hand clubs in the pro shop for about that money so worth checking there too.

Flying to Bergen, Norway before taking the train to Oslo for a few days and finally on by train to Stockholm before dying back to Dublin.

Anyone been in Bergen, Oslo or Stockholm.
Jeez sounds like my ski trips in my 20s. Are you planning on hitting the drink hard? Probably cheaper places you could do it.  ;D

Ah we only have one day and has to be on the way from Madonna di Campiglio to Sirmione. Iíve been to Lake Maggiore on a day trip only, and if we like Garda, then itíll be next. Direct flights from Belfast now so no excuse.

The Provos planted bombs with the support of the majority of the Catholic/Nationalist community. So people are just carrying on their support. 
WTF?? Do you really believe this? SFís attempts to re-write the last 40 years are totally pathetic.

We're flying to Milan Bergamo in June and hiring a car - first couple of nights up in the Brento Dolomites (Madonna di Campiglio) and the last four down in Sirmione right by the lake, but looking to spend a night in between in another reasonable sized village or town on the way down.
A colleague has mentioned Salo, which looks good, and I've already discounted Riva and Malcesine - any other recommendations?

Last year we drove down the side of Lac d'Annecy and I remember thinking going through one or two towns that "aw if I knew these hotels were here, I'd have stayed here".  So hoping for some hidden gems that I don't find on google.
