I want to see Varadkar outside the Dáil holding a press conference welcoming our unionist brothers and sisters into a new economically linked Ireland, purely for maximum trolling effect.

If SF were in any way concerned about the impact of brexit, why didn’t they take their seats in Westminster?

Issues regarding anti-Irish/catholic attacks and Irish language had to be brought up by the Scottish parliament and that Welsh party recently. SF are the only ones able to speak out about the DUP/Tory deal and it’s impact on brexit, so why the f**k aren’t they doing it?!

Thankfully they are not in Westminster.

Imagine them on the floor of Westminster criticising the Brexit process and trying to frustrate any decision making. The pro Brexit red top English papers like the Sun the Daily Mail and the Express would have a field day given their old connections with the IRA. It would only add to the little Englander mentality and harden attitudes even more over there. The best thing they can do is stay completely out of the process and watch it all unravel.

That's it in a nutshell. Be part of the process inside Westminster and become the bad guys, or stay out of it and watch the world burn.

There’ll always be a little Englander mentality. Surely they could call the tories/DUP out on their antics, and if they’re so concerned about lgbt or Irish language, then go and highlight them where they can affect it most. Make their voices heard.

What is the hangup about the abstentionism? All SF voters realise when they vote for their MP's that they won't be represented. Look at Corbyn's treatment about being anti-Semite or zionist. Now imagine what'd be said to the SF representatives especially on Brexit. Their voices wouldn't make a difference in Westminster, as the DUP's evidently doesn't either.

You realise the DUP are keeping the the Tory Government in power?
SF are pro Brexit. They want an extremely hard Brexit. They are prepared to sacrifice business, prosperity, growth etc for a UI or at worse complete chaos in NI. They will keep their coffers topped up with racketeering and illegal smuggling.

 ?????????

Stop embarrassing yourself. All you do here is shout Sinn Féin down all the live long day. Clear to see you've a chip on your shoulder. Are you an SDLP activist?

Unionists getting more triumphalist as the Brexit endgame edges closer.
Do they even have a majority?
And inflicting economic losses on voters is never advisable.

No, they dont. But unionism recently has reverted to 1960. I'm enjoying their downfall.

I work in the Civil Service. The only there's any degree of uncomfortableness between the 2 sections of the community is at poppy time. They should ban the feckin thing. I used to go mass at lunchtime when there was a holiday of obligation. Most times the church was practically empty, come Ash Wednesday they were queued down the street. Every bit as bad.

I remember the mass thing from uni. Queens chaplaincy was empty all year until ash Wednesday when every gombeen was in to get the ashes before walking out of mass and into the pub.

Trans men are not allowed into female changing rooms until"
they have « transitioned ."
Whitey hasn’t had any surgery yet  as far as I know so she wouldn’t be allowed in .

False

False in that you have had the surgery already?  :P

In all seriousness though, anyone who says this isn't coming to Ireland in the next 10 years has their head in the sand.

« It doesn’t matter what’s true and false, what matters is what people think is true or false »

Ok so Whitey. Say you think you are a woman.
Can you walk into the female changing rooms at your local pool?

If people believe lies they have been lied to
.
And that is one reason the US can’t address its gun problem.
It’s one reason the country cannot come together.
Who would want that?
They are playing you like a banjo on MWR.

Yes, you can.

Absolutely not



CL stepped in front of a reporter and if you relied on the MSM for your information you’d have thought he’d be up for GBH for that encounter

If Brett Kavanaugh had got on the way Acosta did with a woman the Dems/media would have had a field day.

So Jim Acosta has sexual assault allegations surrounding him too?
yes a woman is about to drop a bombshell on him from his high school days
She doesn’t remember the year , the place the time or how she got to party or how she got home , she has no witnesses but just because it’s Jim Acosta I believe her wouldn’t u

According to the logic of Republican-supporting posters here, the victim in the following case is a liar, "because there's no evidence".

That's Republican logic for you, ie. none at all.

Nobody is calling the accuser a liar, what we would say is you cannot convict/block someone when the evidence is completely non existent. As used to be the case in the western world until 2018.

See the left are out in force today defending a white male after an altercation with a young female...  ;)

When was the last time you interacted with a female?

About 5 minutes ago.

Play the ball, not the man, gabe.

At the end of the day, he's stealing time of other reporters, which isn't fair. Acosta has a history of this sort of thing.

Acostas press pass revoked now after the fracus between him and the intern trying to move the mic on.

If I was a Democrat, I would be furious because the Democrats won the “Senate Popular Vote” and somehow still lost seats. The system is rigged against them and it’s rascist and unfair

It's really not though. Most of the Senate seats up this time were in democrat areas. There was even a democrat v democrat race in California I believe. It means nothing that they won the popular vote. Nothing.
