The Rev. Ivan Foster explains thing very clearly

"Further to Tom Ferguson’s letter on Friday (‘Unionist unity is not possible without a shared political objective’, May 26, see link below) may I add a comment in support of what he says. Unionist unity is attractive but if there is an incorporating of the unscriptural policies that both the DUP and the Ulster Unionist Party presently adhere to, what would such unity be in the eyes of God?Nothing but the old rebellion renamed! Disunity is not the problem. It is but one of the consequences of the problem. The problem is an offended God! Until that matter is addressed, no matter what ‘repair jobs’ are carried out, the advance of the enemy will continue. In truth, I cannot see a return from the apostasy that has been embraced by Ulster and that repeatedly.

The DUP voting pattern shows a total disregard for the standards that the party once espoused. It is clear that the DUP is increasingly repudiating the truth of God in its search for votes – all to no avail of course. Even professing Christians have joined in the casting off of ’the old paths’.This old Bible text holds the answer for us. “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein,” Jeremiah 6:16.
The DUP and Protestantism generally, echoes the reply of the rebels in the days of Jeremiah."

What would the trading agreement be with GB?
What would the EU view on that be?

Brexit managed to damage both the status quo (NI in UK) and a future United Ireland.

Membership of the EU managed to make the border almost invisible as a practical matter, Brexit damaged that and in a future United Ireland the Common Travel area and EU membership would leave the border between Ireland and GB mostly invisible, Brexit makes that almost impossible.


@MoSalahI’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this. We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League and we failed. We are Liverpool and qualifying to the competition is the bare minimum. I am sorry but it’s too soon for an uplifting or optimistic post. We let you and ourselves down.

You would think nurses didn't know that is was a famously underpaid profession when they signed up to be one. They are all the same with their loud mouth personalities when I was in hospital. Actually the thought of having to be around nurses makes me want to live a healthy lifestyle to avoid hospitals.
What a horrible comment. It is not fair to tar them all with the one brush. It is like any profession these days

+1    very sad individual to write something like that.

signed up two weeks ago, obvious troll.

Two missed conversions the difference

I am watching the game on gaago in the US. The picture quality is ok but noticably lower quality than the Liverpool Villa which I just watched also on a streaming service. For those of you watching in Ireland is the picture quality as good as other streaming services or a regular TV image?

13 of those 14 soccer games were World Cup games which only happens once every four years. It was in the winter and the kickoffs were mostly in the evening which would give the viewing figures a boost they wouldn't get in other years.

General discussion / Re: The US$$ as the World's reserve currency
« on: May 03, 2023, 08:47:47 PM »
Reserve currency status usually goes  to the most powerful country in the world. Before WW2 that was the UK with sterling and after WW2 it was the US.


There are a lot of things you can buy with dollars, therefore there are a lot of people willing to buy dollars, therefore USD is the world reserve currency.

(assuming you're making good faith statements).

You're new here, aren't you.
