Be interesting to see how many resources the Guards throw at the investigation.
The vigilante’s phones would have pinged off the nearest mast at 5am on Sunday morning. And there’s bound to be a CCTV camera in Tulsk and Strokestown, say at the local credit union.

But that takes time & money to investigate and there’s been many cutbacks in rural policing.

Armagh 6-17 St Mary's 1-07 FT
You’d have to say Armagh won’t be far away in summer 2019.

Philip Stephens

This is what happens when parliamentary democracies seek to shrug off responsibility. Referendums undermine political pluralism. As Margaret Thatcher used to say, they are a favourite device of demagogues and dictators. The so-called will of the people reduces liberal democracy to majoritarianism.

F88k off Philip Stephens.

if "parliamentary democracies" are not supposed to follow the will of the people, then scrap the idea of representative democracy and replace it with a meritocracy.

I'm personally sick of having useless incompetents that are not qualified for the roles they are in try to run things and have the wool pulled over their eyes by equally inept and incompetent civil servants.

How many of the current cabinet have professional qualifications appropriate to the roles they find themselves in?

Just a random selection
Minister for Energy & Clean growth - "read" geography at oxford
Minister for Universities, Sciences, Research & Innovation - Modern History at oxford
DEFRA - English at oxford
Transport minister - history in cambridge
Health minister - philosophy, politics and economics at oxford

Not one of them are suitably qualified to critically examine the work of the civil servants under them with any authority.

The conservatives were stupid to ask such an important question to an angry electorate in a referendum. FFS

Correct. A huge risk that has spectacularly backfired.

The question to the electorate was "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?".

Noone knew then how difficult/impossible it actually is to leave the EU. So the question was a minefield.

Michael Lyster would never have stood for that nonsense, so Joe can count his blessings RTE’s No.1 has retired.

We are still 2 points behind city and maybe more importantly 16 points ahead of United.

Finishing top is what matters. Nothing else.

3 points at home to Wolves on the final day should do it.

U23 is Olympic team, LoI selection. I assume you mean U21?

Wpuld be the second Cavanman to play for the senior team if he made it.

Meath, Offally, Carlow, Tyrone and Leitrim are the only ones to not have produced an Ireland player.

I guess winning All-Irelands takes precedence.

Just saw on the news that the eagerly awaited Euro20 draw is on tomorrow. That eagerly awaited I didn't even know it was on  :)

The 4 and 5-star hotels doing a roaring trade tonight.

Mogg questioning the governor of the Bank of England's credentials and name calling just goes to show how the fantasists are willing to peddle anything in order to perpetuate this myth of a promised land full of milk and honey.

Then you have Barnier stating that there will be no other deal yet still the DUP and the hard Brexiteers think that they can get a better deal. They couldn't get 48 letters to put their money where their mouth was. It was time to put up or shut up but they failed to do either.   

I just don't understand the logic. Surely these politicians are (Relatively) intelligent people, if there is a no deal do they not realise that there is a huge possibility that what the BOE claim will happen, will happen. Are they just blinded by the hope that the UK will rise from the flames or do they just not give a rat's ass if the pound drops by 25%?

No in a wrecked economy they supposedly can clean up.

Like a Bilderburg conspiracy. Brexit just a big plan where the elites make themselves richer.

I'd be worried about this evening , a draw would suffice

A loss tonight is real squeaky-bum time. Home wins for Napoli and PSG tonight would mean a table of:
Napoli     9
PSG        8
LFC         6
Belgrade 4

The beginning of the end for the Brexiteers?
Strangely the Daily Mail is backing Tessie May's deal. It's MP's that are out of touch is the theme.

It's just like the dream in Dallas was isn't it ;D

Brexit is a dream. It's better than real life if Arlene can tell the farmers and the business community that they are wrong
Brexit is better than cash.
A bird in the hand is worth nothing compared to a 34 Brexit birds plus Arlene in the bush
Or maybe she has been drinking Bushmills

Who are these businesses that are telling the DUP and Jim Allister that they'd prefer a no deal than Theresa May's deal?

They're not prepared to say which I find strange.

There are a few contenders. When Theresa May landed in July Arlene brought her to Beleek Pottery. It was a seen as a safe business to go to as most exports are to the US. Possible them or someone of similar ilk.

Wrightbus would be on the list. Moy Park likely.

Sammy and the DUP have got their bogeyman;

"Sammy Wilson accused "Brit-bashing" Taoiseach Leo Varadkar of harming good relations he helped forge between the Belfast and Dublin administrations while he was a minister in the Northern Ireland Executive."

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/brexit/brexit-britbashing-taoiseach-varadkar-has-undone-good-relations-work-i-helped-build-says-dups-sammy-wilson-37547473.html

That'll keep the natives happy.

Sammy is the equivalent of Chemical Ali, he keeps the entertainment values high.

I don't know what it is about him but I just can't take him serious and it's still a bit surreal that he is currently at the forefront of British politics. He has received saturation coverage on mainstream British tv since last week and is loving the attention. I don't think he is capable of conducting an interview without mentioning SF/IRA, EU, Irish government, Varadkar, Coveney. He's just a more sanitised version of Willie Frazer.

I didn't know he went to Methody & Queen's and was an economics teacher.

I see USA Eagles defeated Romania 31-5 in Bucharest today. They won’t be a complete pushover for the Ireland squad next Saturday.
