If Boris can get the ERG, and some Labour party rebels onboard, then it would be very tight.
This so called deal is doomed.
I don't get why northern nationalists are clinging to the remnants of the arse end of british imperialism to do right by them.  Has recent decades of subvention addiction affected rational perspective?

The whole focus is on what the DUP demands, there's not a peep out of NI nationalists, It's left up to EU representatives to explain that a DUP veto is not an inevitability to be endured and suffered but one  can choose another way.

I think you're forgetting the "great work" Martina Anderson has done for Sinn Fein in Brussels!!!

John Campbell of BBC NI, I think he's their Brexit Business expert said as much last night even if you are being sarcastic  ;D

Sinn Fein had a big say in the EU's Brexit steering committee as can be seen how the democratic mandate requested by the DUP/UK for the people of Northern Ireland was changed from what in reality was a DUP Veto to a simple majority in Stormont and far from a DUP veto.

Jim Wilson revealed that he met with the DUP yesterday over the Brexit deal and nearly exploded into a fit of rage on the Nolan show when asked. Who would have thought that the UVF would have an input into the outcome of the Brexit process and yet the Tories and ERG are still taking their lead from these people.

Jim was taught economics by a MR S Wilson so understands fully the legal text he was shown about customs and regulatory alignment and how it will pan out.

How desperate are the DUP?

'EU sources' are talking nonsense. Discussions continue.  Needs to be a sensible deal which unionists and nationalists can support.

Brexit fatigue might be a saviour. Get this done by Halloween and literally the Parliament can breathe again.
What better deal is any PM gonna get.
Another referendum will drag this nonsense out for years.

Absolutely none and I include Corbyn in that.

The Moggster has made comments to that effect recently as well and if he tells the ERG it's this deal or no Brexit then they'll go for it irrespective of the DUP.

I wouldn't be surprised if the SNP are being offered another referendum in order to get them onside.

Irrespective of what Corbyn says I think there's enough Labour MP's sitting in pro Brexit seats scared enough to vote through the Boris (Canada -) deal.

Some progress from then to where they are now.

just for clarity, people on here seem to think the GFA stops at saying we can idientofy as British, Irish or both so here is the actual wording

Quote
recognise the birthright of all the people of Northern Ireland to
identify themselves and be accepted as Irish or British, or both, as they
may so choose, and accordingly confirm that their right to hold both
British and Irish citizenship is accepted by both Governments and would
not be affected by any future change in the status of Northern Ireland.

So, not only can you identify as Irish you are also entitled to Irish citizenship.

Is that not contrary to the De Souza outcomes yesterday?

This case reaffirms to me that we were all duped by the GFA.

Well Jesus SF were in there negotiating so hardly surprising, they would not be  known for their high end intellect

I think every party on the nationalist side were in 'negotiating'.

British diplomacy in a nutshell it seems.

You think they're giving something away but really they're not.

Hence the reason the EU is big into legally binding text and Boris and Co want well meaning documents which means SFA.

If you pay the £380 odd quid to renounce your british citizenship, do you also need some other Government to offer you their citizenship in parallel as you can't be countryless so to speak (unless you are a jihadi bride) ?

I was out last night and took a lot of stuff and finding it hard to shift. I've tried Lucozade, water, orange juice, sausages and stuff.

Is there anything that definitely works but the government wont let on?

The secret is planning. Try to drink as much water before you go out as possible.   Ideally 2 litres over the course of the day. Get a decent lunch/dinner which includes plenty of spuds/chips before hitting the drink. You can then drink as much as you like provided you remember to have another 2 pints of water + 2 x brufen or paracetamol  before bed.  You'll awake fully hydrated and no hangover.

You'll awake in a flooded mattress more like.

I am hearing that it will change, seems to be common knowledge.

Just waiting on the county telling us offically. :-\ :( :o

Down CB have agreed to follow the directive from Croke Park to move to the new age groups Im led to believe.

I think Croke Park still have to rubber stamp this and I thought it was supposed to happen at this special congress but I see nothing on it's clar about it.

The likes of National Feile is staying U14 though.

Go games look to be moving up to U13 rather than down to U11.

Heard the bold Pastor had 2 mortgages on the JTI property which he was able to leverage because he bought it for basically nothing and that was the main sticking point!!!

Bamford more or less said yesterday he'd clear those mortgages to secure the sale but Pastor Jeff was looking way above and beyond what he'd payed for it and Ian O'g obviously knew this
