Will Sinn Fein form some pacts with Alliance/SDLP/Greens to maximise the remain vote for the upcoming election this time??

Better than that should Sinn Fein not contest it at all to make sure there is appropriate representation for Remain in Parliament and the /Tories have to overcome another 7/8/9 seats to get a majority??!!

Looks like it's all kicking off this week and a good chance that Bojo and Cummings have gone all in too soon and will now be backed into a corner.

Should be fun to watch like two eighty year olds fighting . . . entertaining but ultimately sad because we're going to be worse off for the experience!!

Pact needed but won't happen. Alliance won't want to look too green and side with SF and SDLP. In fact I dont even think they would stand aside for Hermon not after the Euro election has given them delusions. Greens would be more open to a pact but will want something for it. The obvious answer is SDLP stand aside in NB and SF in SB but it won't happen unfortunately and we will likely be stuck with the horrible Dodds and ELP

In a nutshell, same with Liberals and that self obsessed new leader, after Euro's they think they will win big time in a General Election and will end up just splitting remain votes.

Is Lady Sylvia going to go again?

As much as the DUP closed a bit on her last time out, I think she will consolidate her North Down vote if she chooses to stand.

Shinners allowing the SDLP a free run at South Belfast with the SDLP doing the same in North Belfast on the face of it is a no brainer even though there'll be calls of both parties turning this election into a sectarian head count, something that never seems to be levelled at the UUP or DUP when they do the same.

To avoid a No Deal Brexit, she will.

So apparently Boris Johnson is going to call a General Election on Thursday to be held on the 17th October and any Tory MPs who actively campaign for against a No Deal Brexit will be deselected.

...interestingly I googled the deputy prime minister and hadn't realised that the post has been put on the shelf since Nick Clegg

I heard somewhere, maybe BBC News at 10, that Dominic Raab is the new Deputy PM in the UK as well as Foreign Secretary. Mind you, haven't seen it written on any websites or mentioned on Twitter. So who knows really.

Dont want to get involved in fan for fan tantrums but Tyrone fans are better than Dublin fans in their behaviour is what i am hearing here, Dublin fans have their bad apples all right, especially in the past, however Tyronen are  the most violent county in the country, most likey people sitting in the stands who murdered people, innocent people, and falls over to the football pitch, county chairmans being knocked out at a ladies county finals, a manager who supports rapists in court. Tyrone fans can be a horrible shower in the stands behaving like animals shouting racist and homophopic slurs, violent taunts.

Anyway gents back to the game, i would expect 2 strong teams and im going for a draw, Omagh is a tough place to go and last years game was very tight with a few calls going Dublins way.

It was a Kerry man who threw the punch and knocked the chairman out.

But that is neither here nor there. Scandalous post and nothing to do with anything but muck flinging. GAABoard has gone to pot in recent years, which is why I rarely post anymore, but this is sinking it to new lows.

Caught the last few minutes of, there's no place like Tyrone !! Lots of inbreeding going on up that direction?

Caught the first episode, never again. Terrible show. Seen a trailer for last night's, some young girl turning up to a gala sinner in a tractor she was driving? Nope, never happens.

Another Tyrone local paper is biting the dust...

QuoteTyrone Times to close as JPI Media axes 10 titles

Cookstown-based newspaper Tyrone Times is set to close, as its publisher looks to secure the "long-term stability of the business".

Tyrone Times is one of ten regional newspapers to be shuttered, owners JPI Media have announced.

The publisher said no jobs would be lost in the process, with affected staff to be moved to its other titles.

The North West News Group stepped in when the Dungannon Observer folded with the Dungannon Herald. Could be room for a Cookstown Herald?

We didn't need to hear it as we knew it already... but the prize for no deal is that the US gets it's grubby mitts on the NHS.

Confirmed today by the orangutan.

Can wait until the legal US drug dealing conglomerates get in the door here.

Divide and conquer.

The first decent thing Teresa May has done in a long time was get him to confirm that!!!

Totally f**ks the Brexiteers up there is no way that the country wants to lose the NHS not a f**king chance and now Remain have something concrete to use for the next election/confirmatory vote etc.

Video of Farage talking about moving to an insurance type system as well this should be gold to remain politicians and they need to drive it home!!

I thought the same myself. I can't help wonder how history will remember Theresa. Yes, she was a clueless PM. Can't help now reflect back thinking she tried her best (not good enough) to avoid a hard Brexit or no deal Brexit. Now that she has been defeat, fire that in now to show that the big casualty for Britain will be -  the NHS.
People who won't Google for information, but instead put 100s of questions every week on Facebook.
