The law is truly an ass. How can someone who fled the country before trial/sentence be allowed to appeal the sentence.....paid for by legal aid.

Me & the Mrs watched the 1st episode of Sex Education on Netflix last night, hard to explain how bad it is. They've transplanted an American High School set up into rural England somewhere but it stiĺl has US sensibilities. I know I'm not the target demographic and young uns might lap it up, but god it is awful.

Are you just trying to tell us you got the roide last night😜

This from a barrister friend of mine earlier today.....my head hurt after reading it😩

No deal? No problem. Here's an extract of the summary guidance on civil justice from the Law Society...happy reading..National law rules will apply to this area of the law in the UK and in EU/EEA member states (unless otherwise stated in the guidance), as all reciprocal elements of EU law will cease to have effect. In the UK, they will be repealed by the UK government.
In some cases, bilateral treaties and conventions pre-dating EU membership may exist between the UK and EU member states. To find out whether this is the case, you will need to consult the national law of the state concerned. You may also need to contact a local lawyer in that country.
Where the parties have an exclusive choice of court agreement, the UK will accede to the 2005 Hague Convention. This will be applied between the UK and EU/EEA states, and other states party to that convention.
In relation to Service of Documents and Taking of Evidence, the Hague Conventions will continue to apply.
The status of ongoing cases is unclear. The rules governing the enforceability of any case decided after 29 March 2019 will cease to have effect, and there is a risk that parallel cases may be taken in multiple jurisdictions.
The Brussels I Regulation will no longer apply between the UK and EU27. It is likely that England and Wales will fall back on pre-existing common law rules for the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments.
The government has signalled its intention to adopt the 2005 Hague Convention on choice-of-court agreements in the event of a no-deal Brexit. This convention provides only for the recognition and enforcement of judgments where the parties have concluded an exclusive choice-of-court agreement.
The national law of each EU/EEA state will determine whether a foreign UK judgment can be recognised and enforced in that jurisdiction.
The Insolvency Regulation will no longer be applicable between the UK and EU27 member states. An insolvency officeholder appointed in the UK will have difficulty obtaining recognition in the EU.
Other EU regulations concerning the creation of special instruments in specific fields (eg the Motor Insurance Directive) will no longer apply. EU rules protecting the weaker party, for example victims of motor accidents, will no longer apply in the UK.

Lowry leading by 3, few holes left of 3rd round. Michelson shoots 60 in opening round across the pond.

Is it true that the Brits have put all their army reserves on notice to be ready to mobilise on 30th March??

Withdrawing article 50 unilaterally would be the worst option. It can never happen. The people voted for Brexit, if its not to go ahead it will have to, at the very least, seem like its the public who've changed their minds.
It can absolutely happen and it would be a far better option than no deal.

You have to separate Brexit the abstract idea from Brexit the reality.

Half of Britain likes the abstract idea of Brexit. An abstract idea is fantasy.

In reality, Brexit has proven to be undeliverable - every single practical idea of what Brexit could be is deeply unpopular.

May's deal is deeply unpopular, no deal is deeply unpopular, Liechtenstein is deeply unpopular.

If somebody is on the edge of a multi-storey car park for six hours shouting loudly that they're going to throw themselves off but is secretly having second thoughts, relenting and retreating is a far better option than throwing themselves off for fear of losing face.

Far better to lose face and survive than not lose face and self-destruct.

Were the 'will of the people' denied, Britain would have much bigger problems going forward than Brexit. The entire democratic system would be shaken to the core, and the rise of the far right would be the least of the problems.

There are much safer ways to withdraw from Brexit, most of which are routes to a second referendum.

What do you base this assessment on? Far right? Tommy Robinson been on to you? Most people are busy getting on with their lives.

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 doesn’t seem to be any worse a farce than Westminster Atm but I get your drift.
Who said   “ The best argument against democracy is a half hour conversation with an average voter “

Churchill and he wasn't far wrong. What discernible difference has havingno government in NI made over the last 2 years?

Ask people waiting for operations
Ask those families on universal credit - Go and spend 15 minutes at any of the foodbanks across NI.
Ask children who's education is suffering
Ask construction workers who rely on public contracts
Ask any of the relatives of those killed on the A5

Do all that, then tell me Stormont doesn't matter, or Westminster doesn't matter or Government doesn't matter. It all matters, to someone, somewhere it matters.

People were waiting on operations 2 years ago
The DUP/SF cabal introduced universal credit to N.I.
Reality is life goes on without the need for Stormont.
