Adams was right.  They just can't cope with equality.  Power sharing in the North is finished.  Time for Nats/Repubs to focus on Joint Authority and let the Unionists say No to that, and then no to the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing...

no deal

Fine. Let demographics and Brexit take care of the rest. Arlene Foster is playing such a blinder that surely she must be a Sinn Fein plant.. Tiocfaidh ar la!

You couldn't make it up. 

To be fair one thing the DUP are good at is leading the media by the nose.  They briefed journalists over the weekend that a deal was in the offing.  Journos fall all over themselves to say it's imminent, and Leo and Theresa buy the BS.  What they were doing was running a possible deal up the flagpole to see how the knuckle draggers would react.  The grassroots, OO and Jamie Bryson say NEVER and the deal is fecked.

Indo gives the names of the other three girls in the house that night, one of which I was informed was the IP;

This trial could go either way as yet.

Your informant is wrong.

For what it’s worth, bilingual road signs (when the second language is Gaeilge) are more costly to create. There must be tens of thousands of signs across Ireland that declare Rampaí, which means signs are bigger and need more ink.

More importantly, the increased levels of text involved in bilingualism decreases the legibility of those signs, and therefore decreases their ability to deliver information instantaneously. As such they could be perceived as a distraction to drivers.... and therefore make driving more dangerous.

The opposite might apply in somewhere like Croatia, whereby their influx of tourists undoubtedly struggle with the unusual characters in their lanaguage, and providing an English language version of the message helps prevent tourists from slowing to a stop at junctions and roundabouts.

But in Ireland, where every single person who speaks Irish also speaks English, and tourists have no understanding of Irish, I do believe it’s an unnecessary distraction.

Complete and utter shite

Another issue, Rory Harrison has been charged with perverting the course of justice.  I wonder what the evidence for this is??

David, does digital penetration or penetration with an object without consent not count as rape too??

Tricolour at Ireland game today with "I believe her" on it.  :o
A gobshite making up his/her mind having heard one side. Just as well he/she isn't on the jury.
As for the alleged victim having some physical injury we can wait for the old "very vigorous sex" line to be brought into play

I’d imagine if a rugby player was having sex with someone who’s 7 half stone (this is random, nothing to do with case) that it could lead to some pain, especially if you’re drunk and up for some wild stuff

Pardon??!?!

A draw at home against Wicklow is a poor result.  No two ways about it.

Why exactly would she lie?
Why exactly would Jackson lie?

Because he's on trial for rape and will end up in clink if convicted??

Agreed on most points there MS, but its only poor judgement should Jackson and co are found guilty? And not that you would be betting on such a trial but if i was betting on this based on whats been thrown about I'd be hedging my bets towards guilty.

What quotes I have found from this girl in relation to the questions that shes been asked have been well answered with a degree of confidence also, considering the serious nature of whats at hand and whats she's been through and going through (if she's tell the truth that is)

Its certainly a huge talking point in most work places

Agree with your assessment MR2 but while his attendance at court was a defence tactic, I think it is poor judgement from Best to offer a character reference.  If they're acquitted he's not needed but he's already received heavy criticism and he must have known this would be a high profile trial.  I would think if they're found guilty Best leaves himself open to criticism for giving a character reference for a rapist(s).

If we take this thread as being representative of public opinion, if Jackson and Olding are convicted you wouldn't want to be within a million miles of giving them a character reference!!

Barnier playing bad cop again

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator has repeated that a UK decision to leave the single market and customs union would make Irish border checks "unavoidable".

I've spoken to several fireside lawyers and a couple of actual lawyers.  The consensus is that it's 50:50 at the moment and the evidence of the other girl (who is slated to appear for the defence) will be crucial and how this evidence comes over will determine whether the defendants go in the witness box.

I ask again are we sure it was senior for the defence who directed he attend. If it was. Which senior?  We are again assuming a lot here.

From the Irish Times report:

At the outset of Monday’s hearing there was legal discussion of media reporting of how Mr Best attended the trial last Wednesday.  The court was told Mr Best attended the hearing because he was instructed to be present by lawyers involved in the case. The matter was raised by lawyers for the defence.  It was agreed that this fact should be reported by the press.

It doesn't say it directly, but I think this infers he was "instructed" to attend by the defence?

How many people on the street in Norn Iron would recognise and know Rory Best, not very many I would garner.

The witness was behind a screen so she wouldn't even know he was there.

Now you're Rory Best, farmer rugby player you are directed to attend your friends trial, it's not an invitation "Dear Rory, you wouldn't been a sport and attend....etc" He has been told to attend a very serious trial, of course he's bloody well going to attend, he can't second guess any SC's motives, he's not a law student or one of us gobshites with too much time on his hands. He was there in good faith I have no doubt whether he was invited in good faith is another debate and when it comes to ethics and the law that debate would break the internet.

Social media is becoming a scourge and is showing no signs of maturity, the amount of abuse Rory Best has received is disgusting. If any person is on this board was directed by an SC to attend their friends trial and your friend had pleaded not guilty, every single person would attend.

not that long ago Rory Best was in an eating place in Lurgan. Plenty of people recognised him

He can't be that clever, so!
