No Irish party (Nationalist or Unionist) makes one iota at Westminster.

Sure look at the number of SNP members that effectively don't matter.

My gripe with SF is they appear to be doing sweet FA here to get things back on track.

Stormont is dead, hopefully. There's a myth that things will improve if the Assembly and Executive returns. Balls. People have short memories, it was a farce, but it's always been a farce from 1921. Anything that shortens the life of this putrid statelet is fine by my, and the demise of Stormont is one of those things

In fairness it doesn’t seem to be any worse a farce than Westminster Atm but I get your drift.
Who said   “ The best argument against democracy is a half hour conversation with an average voter “

Churchill and he wasn't far wrong. What discernible difference has havingno government in NI made over the last 2 years?

Ask people waiting for operations
Ask those families on universal credit - Go and spend 15 minutes at any of the foodbanks across NI.
Ask children who's education is suffering
Ask construction workers who rely on public contracts
Ask any of the relatives of those killed on the A5

Do all that, then tell me Stormont doesn't matter, or Westminster doesn't matter or Government doesn't matter. It all matters, to someone, somewhere it matters.

Do you write this stuff yourself?

They managed to come to an agreement with the DUP only for it to be vetoed by those behind the DUP. Hard to know what you can do when those you're negotiating with don't appear to have any say. What would you have them do?

No work, no pay! Simples.

Pointless ill thought out soundbite.

No deal looks v unlikely once we've gotten into the zone where the date is more flexible than first stated. Everyone wants a deal (even those claiming not to)

Speedy boarders getting on before wheelchair users

I don't understand. Does this cause problems?

I have as much disdain for RDE as the next man but I can't believe Jude thought this would be a good idea. If the Newsletter did it about Michelle O'Neill or Mary Lou there'd be war and rightfully so.

How on earth is any of what you've described comparable?

Insulting someone because of their political views.

Jude Collins isn't a newspaper.

RDE isn't an elected representative.

Jude is a hired gun so I doubt he decided to do it off his own bat

Correct - he's on the payroll, similar to Chris Donnelly.

Great political analysis  ::)

RDE wrote a piece slating Jude during the week. This appears to be a personal riposte.

Jude Collins, a man who things Patsy Gillespie deserved to be strapped to his own van, forced to drive to an army checkpoint while his family were held at gunpoint and then blown up.

Jude Collins is a nasty human being who will not be missed.

He didn't say that.

One that doesn't involve trying to squeeze a few extra Euros out of wheelchair users who want to board his planes.

Whats this about?

O'Leary doesn't come across as a likeable character, and some of his business practices are questionable, but his company is one of the most successful Irish businesses there is, and has revolutionised air travel. I think he can be afforded some admiration for that.

Don't know how legit this is, but listen to the words.  Ignore the flag behind him.
