She's joined ISIS. Joined a terrorist organisation. Just because she's coming back to the UK doesn't mean she has rejected their ideology, if you can call it that.
She must not be trusted. She must be isolated and incarcerated.

 ;D That'd be a great world you'd live in

'Tanaiste rubbishes report ireland must face...'

So just to clarify that Guardian article.

When they talk about her deal are they referring to the original backstop one that got defeated, or the recent one that seeks to tear up the backstop?

The latter WC.

The original deal is seen as dead in the water after the historic defeat so the only way it will get through now is with the Backstop ammendment which the EU have steadfastly said will not be changed.

Brits pinning their hopes on the fact that the EU have in the past done last minute deals to get problems sorted, but it is the riskiest of risky strategies when the EU have made it abundently clear that this wont be happening as it was the Brits who put the back stop into the agreement in the first place.

I don't get that from reading it. It seems to be the former - May apparently stalling so that the Brits, her own MP's, are forced into accepting her original deal, or face a long delay

(there is only one deal)

Just saw the Donegal goal from last night... what was the Meath keeper at?

We were blessed.

Looked like the donegal lad got a touch on it, no? Good play rather than goalie error for me if so

Was just about to chip in my experience - don't buy it expecting to receive better treatment.

Much of the time any appointments and/or operations if required will be at a public hospital.

general, is this in the North? 

It is directly contrary to my experience.  All my appointments have been in private clinics or hospitals. 

My sister is a consultant in the Ulster hospital in Dundonald - no private work is done (in her field anyway) in a trust hospital.

I think this may be re Benenden - it isn't private medical insurance though, its some sort of hybrid.

Also have been thinking about getting cover - how much is it per month roughly?

There was a poignant moment at the start of the second half when Pigott got stuck into their midfielder. I thought it set the tone. He took the yellow and they stopped their funny stuff. I like this lad a lot. We could do with a few more like him. He's not dirty but he's a bit bould and there's nothing wrong with that at all. We upped our physicality from that moment on and didn't look back

Standard exchange

'SF should do whatever it takes to get back into government'

'well, they did make a lot of compromises to reach an agreement with the DUP, but it was then veto'ed by others, so the balls not really in their court'

'ha, SF obviously don't care about any of those issues they were going to compromise on'

'Well, they do, but they were willing to compromise like you said'

'...................none of those issues matter anyway'

I would have voted SF in the past. But they have done nothing for anyone in the last few years.
If The SDLP had Claire Hanna as a leader then they may well start to make gains. Joining with FF i think is not the answer.
Sf sit back while health education etc is collapsing around them all just to get one over the DUP. Its fine for mary lou she has no family in the North. I live in Dublin now but i see with elderly parents what the outcome of this sf dup stand off is. Its time for a change from both sides.

Can you explain that?

My reading of the current scenario is that SF made concessions and came to a deal with the DUP, which was then veto'ed by 'shadowy forces' behind the DUP. What would you have SF do? The ball clearly isn't in their court - they don't even have anyone to negotiate with, as the DUP don't appear to have any power to agree a deal!!

Could today be finally the day when the whole momentum started moving slowly to Remain? Nicola Sturgeon last night lambasted Teresa May again over her intransigence and desire to pander to her party right-wing. On C4 news the night before last, all Welsh politicans (save UKIPpers) and farming leaders all but admitted voting Leave was a ghastly mistake, the implications of which are now becoming all too clear. Today Union leaders' pleas for May to delay / change Brexit have fallen on deaf ears. The Airbus CEO has spoken this morning of the catastrophe a no-deal would have for their jobs and progress.

At what point does the snowball become an avalanche?

Nicola Sturgeon and the news on C4 are regarded in a similar light by brexiteers. They will not be passing any remarks.

If theres no deal they'll have no choice. Its still a border caused by brexit, ie by the british, no matter who is forced to maintain it.

Looking more and more like something will be agreed . . . certainly the market thinks so with the sterling improving a lot in the last week.

Can they put some kind of time limit on the back stop that will allow the deal to squeak through??!

What??! that polish gombeen was put up to that by the brits, you'd be better not passing heed. As was said, a time limited backstop isn't a backstop, this will not be happening  ::)
