It always amazes me how then can predict these things to the second, decades in advance.

 - and that they've been able to do it for 330 years.

Anyway, the B-I-L is now doing a Brexit from the family and good riddance to his expansionist imperialist arse. We're going to see if we can find a decent alt-white rebel to replace him.

I'm searching for the relevance to logic in your point.

Are you talking to me? Where did I tell anyone what to think? I asked FeaR what he thought. And geography has no  bearing on logic.

OK then. Thanks for the excellent advice. I'll have to fall out with my imperialist expansionist brother-in-law. I didn't even know this about him until you told me. Thanks  for saving me and my family from the shame of such an association. I  think I'll ring him now

Hardy, the English flag, the St George's is fooking grand, as they well know themselves. And as they equally know, the Butcher's Apron is not, nor has it ever been, an 'English' flag.

Sincerely hoping that answers your kind query, yours, FóSB.

Sorry, I'm even more confused now. The English flag often co-opted by the National Front, among other upstanding community activists) is OK, but the Union flag is not?  My brother-in-law probably wouldn't go within an ass's roar of the NF flag, but he'd imagine he'd be grand with the flag of his sovereign country. What am I to tell him and where am I to sit/stand if he tells me if it's OK for me to take my flag* then he's f**ing well going to take his (even if his vexillology is somewhat suspect)?

* I wouldn't be taking any flag, but that's not the point.

I have a Cork person in my extended family. He doesn't bring confederate flags to matches but if he tried to, I'd tell him to cop himself on and, if necessary, explain to him what the flag symbolises these days. And if he still insisted, I'd tell him he could stand on his own at the match.

But Fear, I need your advice. There are two English people in my extended family. When Ireland next play England in Dublin, am I to tell them that I find their flag offensive and they should leave it at home or I'm not going to any match with them?

Let him at it. I don't think punters can be levied to bail out bookies (as opposed to bookies masquerading as insurance companies).

It's the equivalent of the straight bananas myth. Brought to you by Boris Johnson.

FT :
The Trump administration recently killed an effort to use online technologies to draw people away from extremism, axing a $400,000 grant for a deradicalisation group called Life after Hate in Chicago. Run by several former members of white nationalist organisations, the group was planning to use counter extremism technologies pioneered by Moonshot of London

Steve Bannon was never going to have that.

They actually put the starting the games by puckouts rule on trial in direct response to the Colin Lynch massacre of 1998.


I didn't know/remember that. Do you remember the outcome - why it wasn't adopted? I can't imagine why they concluded that the ugly spectacle of the throw-in was preferable to a puck out and contest in the air for possession.

Maybe they concluded that that your opinion is wrong (heaven forbid they disagree with Meath's premier, all seeing, fountain of knowledge) and that it's actually NOT an ugly spectacle after all!

Maybe you should lie down for a while.
