Can every one of the shinners on here tell Gerry Adams to shut the f**k up until the election is over?

For the first time in maybe close on  20 years I'm not going to vote, they can all f**k off.

But unfortunately that means you are happy with the status quo.

Stormont is very norn irn

The benches in Westminster are green but that was unacceptable for use at Stormont. According to wikipedia:

The painting The Entry of King William into Ireland, a gift from the Dutch government to its Northern Ireland counterpart, was hung in the House of Commons when it opened. However, it was removed after having been defaced by a Scottish preacher, who had travelled from Scotland for that express purpose. The reason for his anger was that the painting also showed the Pope, who had blessed William's enterprise.

The building itself changed little over the years, even as the parliaments meeting inside it did. To camouflage it during World War II, the building's Portland stone was painted with supposedly removable "paint" made of bitumen and cow manure. However, after the war, removing the paint proved an enormous difficulty, with the paint having scarred the stonework. It took seven years to remove the "paint", and the exterior façade has never regained its original white colour. While most traces of it were removed from the façades (though having done damage that can be seen up close), some of the remains of the paint survive in the inner courtyards and unseen parts of the place.

No shit.

Question for the shinners: Could an election be avoided if Arlene stepped aside now for a RHI enquiry?

PS. I am not from the DUP.

I've only just discovered this thread, and now feel guilty about creating the homophobe thread which was half in jest, but half because of some camp-as-you-like performances of gays on television.

Watched Captain Philips. Good movie with a couple excellent performances. Also watched Green Room which is a violent thriller. However it is excellent.

I was puzzled by how easy it was for the pirates to initially board the vessel.

I thought you liked Rors.....

I do. I'm just annoyed at him for losing a tournament he should have won, especially when he was one up on the 17th.

Storm is so boring. Some McIlroy magic can win this.

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir is head and shoulders above every other MLA in Sinn Fein and Stormont.

Good to see he's not taking too much notice of what's written about him on here he's -8 for his last 8 holes.

Few sights better in golf than McIlroy on the charge like that!!

Curates egg. 3 dropped shots over for the first four holes and 2 dropped shots over the last two holes.

Hold on... he didn't wanna go to the Olympics cause he's scared of offending his mates? His mates like?

He's in a position to be the fuckin Mufasa of ALL his (real) mates. Unless you meant he was worried about annoying Niall Horan? Then I'd buy it.

I think you've hit the nail on the head. He's brought up in a culture of supporting OWC and Ulster Rugby and his mates would all be british passport holders. (They're the people that want to know why they cannot vote Tory or Labour in local elections). So clearly in that environment Rory will have no affiliation whatsoever with Ireland or being Irish.

Which makes his delight at winning the Irish Open rather puzzling. His celebration looked pretty genuine to me.
