Crispin Odey's comments (made last week) are the reason sterling jumped last week.

Interesting bit of theatre yesterday with most of the DUP MP's suddenly becoming available to meet Simon Coveney after he'd suggested that they'd refused his offer on Good Morning Ulster. Christopher (I'm younger than I look) Stalford struggled to explain what happened but mumbled something about the Irish Government not following up on it's initial request and then playing the I'm not sure card when pressed further...

I heard that - Stalford said that the Irish government didn't follow up on the invite they issued...well there was obviously no response from the DUP!  Everyone else managed it. 
Always someone else's fault, when even if it was an oversight, it was a DUP oversight!

David, check out Autoline’s telematics policy, called ChilliDrive. It is based on monitored driving, and premiums come down quite a bit in Yr2. £1,500 is prob right enough. No black box needed, just an app.

The IT reports,

'After the eviction, the security staff stayed on at the property, in an apparent attempt to ensure the house remained in the possession of KBC. But they were attacked in the early hours of Sunday morning by a 20-strong gang armed with a gun and baseball bats.'
Where did the figure of 20 come from?  Did someone do a roll call?
And then the  IT report that there was a gun.
 Is the reported presence of a gun in the ambush an established fact  or is the IT  just repeating embellished accounts of the incident by the hired security thugs and presenting them as facts , the very same thugs who were caught napping, were outwitted and easily overpowered in the ambush?
I thought the dog was shot?

How much vigilantism is the right amount?
There's not near enough of it.
And some of the FineGael/banker lovers on here should be ashamed of themselves; bunch of arrogant, self-riteous c"nts- ashamed that some of them claim to be GAA men from Tyrone
w**kers,  ban away
Catch yourself on

There has yet to be the slightest evidence demonstrated that the security firm involved were loyalist paramilitaries.

Your man is an absolute lowlife gangster. Bleeding the state dry for years. Slap it up him.
If this is the firm I think it is, it is certainly not the first time they have operated south of the border. Given the gardai involvement, wouldn’t it be safe to say they were not acting illegally?

There’s a specialist security company up north who are called upon for any hostile work the banks, receivers, insolvency practitioners etc may need to engage in.
It is a former British army guy at the helm, so wouldn’t be surprised if it is the same people.

Heard someone on the radio earlier saying that anyone talking about a border poll should learn the lessons of the Brexit poll - make a decent plan before asking people to vote!
Correct, I have not seen any plan from either SF or SDLP that would get me to vote for a UI, and I consider myself a republican, small r. I'd abstain.
SDLP are not calling for a border poll at this time. I don’t think it is a bad idea though for SF to keep mentioning it (despite knowing no one will grant it immediately) as it has the effect of making it sound inevitable.

Another handy thing I’ve used Revolut for in the past while is to collect deposits for a hen party. I send each person a request for payment, and they use the link to send me money using their debit card. V handy.

Sammy Wilson has just said on C4 News that the backstop proposal as it is currently proposed will lead to reunification of Ireland.

Smokin’ Joe- are the DUP taking any notice of industry groups at all?

Love it. The rates are what they are but there’s no commission.

Oh yes - you may have mentioned that one. I stayed in a chalet run by the Mountains utopia people in Chamonix and it was great, though they wrangled “hot tub cleaning” money out of us - was deffo a racket.
The pub is called and it is good for showing soccer and rugby, and also showed the AIF. Follow them on FB to see when they have music running. There’s a good après bar at the bottom of the Ardent lift called Happy Hours and they run buses back into Montriond and Morzine a few days a week but am sure the chalet guys would pick you up.

There is what I understand to be a good board park in the runs above the Ardent Lift called The Stash. Never been in.

Heading for Morzine (our chalet is in Montriond) in January. Just starting to do a bit of research - the area seems so massive as to be overwhelming though. Any recommendations for any runs/bars/anything else that we should ensure we see or do in particular? Most of group will be skiing (and a few beginners in that who'll be in lessons for most of the week), but a couple of us will probably board, and we're decent enough - will def be looking out for boarder cross tracks.
Which chalet did you go for? You’ll be closest to buses up to Ardent that links well to Avoriaz and good access to the Swiss sectors. My fav run in that area starts at a collection of lifts called Plain Dranse and is a wide red run down to the lift at the bottom. I have plenty of tips on the Morzine/Les Gets side that I can send on.
Not much entertainment in Montriond but there is a little bar-tabac that is run by a girl from Omagh! I’ve had a few good seshes in there.

Appreciate the help,some of the forms/questions online are a bit confusing,I don't want to lie about something when I don't actually know the answer,il get something sorted
Def don’t do that (lie) - you will be found out. You could just call a local broker (Autoline if in NI) and they can help answer the questions that you don’t know the answer to.
