As hard as it is to believe there actually ar a few differences.

Look at casement park and how it can't progress. School funds, civil service funds etc seem to have suffered - more the distribution of them - which has led to a struggle to plan.

If the civil service (who are also utterly useless in certain areas) were allowed to make strategic decision (like budgets/infrastructure/etc) then it wouldn't be a problem.

Suitable legislation could be introduced to allow that - then you'd probably notice the benefits of not having stormont.

And who puts forward that legislation, politicians by any chance. These turkeys arenít voting for Christmas when their wages are at risk even if it is detrimental to the people who voted for them. And donít think Westminster will override anyone over here seeing as the DUP tail is wagging the Torie dog.

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 doesnít seem to be any worse a farce than Westminster Atm but I get your drift.

Had my first 5 Guys the other week (hadn't planned on eating there but it was right next door to the pub we were in in Dublin)...Ä17 for a burger (regular, not double), fries and a Sprite. Was decent but not Ä17 worth of decent !

Been to one in Belfast, after paying I was going to ask ďis it 5 guys or 5 Michelin starsĒ on the door. The food was Mc Donaldís standard.

Manfred Weber ask ď what do you want to achieve ď the answer is they donít know. ďWe donít know what we want but itís not thisĒ ,It really is laughable at this stage but at least they (EU) are not moving on the backstop.

I would agree on that for sure, and they next time they come canvassing I will be giving them an earful on it. As for their abstention in Westminster I couldnít gave a rats ass.

And what good has the SDLPís presence done over the years for nationalist here especially when the tories were in power. How many posters on here if they were starting a new job first port of call is the swear allegiance to the British Crown. If you donít like SF policy on the matter then donít vote for them. Seems the the majority of Irish nationalist in the north donít have a problem with abstinence.
All the disfunctions and pantomime thatís gone on in parliament this last few months and all some people can think of is that on a Brexit thread.

So bringing peace to the North and saving countless lives has done nothing for Nationalist?

Muppet.

Their presence in Westminster fellow muppet. I respect the SDLP more than you respect SF but while we are on the subject do you think SF had nothing to do with the current peace we are enjoying. I never voted SF during that period because I am opposed to violence. You sound more like a Dupper than any sort of nationalist.

Sorry guys I didnít realize that SF was opposed to the back stop deal as well therefore flying in the face of the NI business community, farmers union and the overall majority. Are SF perfect no and I would have issues with the way they have played a part in the current impasse of the running of this place, but comparing them to the DUP is lazy criticism.

Some politicians resign but these ones never will. What Paisley was up to would never have stood anywhere else and now he's talking about May making him a cup of tea in a speel which was clearly incredibly arrogant never mind the blatant sexism.The arrogance of these people know no bounds. With things like RHI they'll be alright though but once again they will shaft most of the people who vote for them and they will continue to vote for them.

I am unsure if they understand the implications yet. This is the biggest thing which could wreck their precious union and even if a quarter of the doomsday scenarios predicted come true they are bound to lose some voter base. They are bound to surely...

Never underestimate the voting unionists electorate to cut of their nose off to spite their face. Come election time the fear of a nationalist majority will negate any hard feelings over RHI, standing by MPs with gift holidays and leading their precious union into a no deal Brexit. You have to remember that most of them (DUP) have parachutes and their loyal voters are a resource that will be expended when the time comes, left to wallow in the wreckage along with us nationalist of course.

Interesting bit of theatre yesterday with most of the DUP MP's suddenly becoming available to meet Simon Coveney after he'd suggested that they'd refused his offer on Good Morning Ulster. Christopher (I'm younger than I look) Stalford struggled to explain what happened but mumbled something about the Irish Government not following up on it's initial request and then playing the I'm not sure card when pressed further...

On the TV coverage it was interesting that they showed poor Gregory Campbell being made to swap seats with Nige so that Nige could get closer to Coveney for the cameras. Our Nige pulling rank on wee Gregory.

Coveney has a degree  in Agriculture and a firm grasp on Economics and Trade Mechanisms. So heís maybe the best Equipped on how to educate those Animals (DUP) on how their reluctance to embrace NIís great opportunity that this current deal is and the only trough they should be drinking from.

Very disfunctional performance due to players not use to each other and playing out of position. Biggest worries would be Milner, he didnít have a great game and the same when he was on v Man City. Sturridge should be sold as he didnít look interested or maybe his legs are gone, Moreno should be sold to. Shaq looks like he is a impact sub for when the game opens up or when they are leading.
Got the impression that the FA cup isnít on the Klopp radar and is a distraction, so it maybe rubbed of on the players.

Antrim / Re: ANTRIM HURLING
« on: January 07, 2019, 07:00:00 PM »
meant to get to the game on sat but was working and never got to it. I see that all 6 forwards got on the score sheet and by all accounts it was a good run out for the panel.

Was a competitive enough game, Antrim obviously missing a few and that will only improve once players start coming back. Hopefully Cushendall players are not available till after St Paddy's day and that will give other players a better run in the team.

Was expecting more on the panel from some clubs but some players are still with their college teams I suspect and others may be carrying injuries

What size was the panel for this game?

Antrim had, I think about 21 there, not sure TBH,  few lads came on during the game

Young rice came on at half time for Ronan Molloy, big lad with pace to  but I canít remember who else
Darren Gleason the tipp goalie was on the line helping. Got talking to him heís a sound big lad.
Lots to work on for sure, well done to all the lads who weighed in. The Ref was a bit iffy looking 😊😊

Kompany lead with the studs and should have walked. Another ref bottles it when a big call is the right one. Man City played like a team who needed the win more and just about deserved it. If  Gomez or matip(yes even him) where on instead of Loveren then itís at least a draw. Still 4 up but itís how the players respond that dictates the rest of the season.

City player wrestled to the ground in the box, thought ref missed a few in the game tbh

Refs canít get everything right I know that but they shouldnít miss the tackles that could break a players leg. Look at the footage only Salah seen it coming and lifted his leg it could have been real nasty, Ref bottled it for sure. Still I donít think Liverpool played well enough tonight to earn 3 points.
