Whenever Irish reunification takes place, and it will, Dec 12th 2019 will be looked on as as a key date in laying the foundations for a United Ireland.  Bring it on.

Will it be Varadkar's legacy? To repeat one again, he should never have thrown that lifebuoy to Johnson, a 2nd ref. would surely have come.

Its not beyond the realms of possibilities that Johnson could lose Uxbridge. He's only ahead by 5k in 2017, closing from 10k the previous election. If hes not an MP can he not be Prime Minister?

I think if he loses his seat he can only remain PM by being made a Lord.

Great 3 points to get. Why can't they play like that every game?

They were ok in the first half. In the second, bar the peno and Rashford's occasional incursions, they were as ordinary as Spurs, (who had more possession). If that's one of Utd's better performances of the season then it's no wonder why they've languished for so long this season.

Twitter rumours tonight about a very significant death, all stemming from a screen grab from a WhatsApp group with an interesting profile pic.

And what have you done to dispel these rumours? lol
I was waiting for the newsflash at 9.30 this morning and nothing has come through.

Flippin Gibbo.

What happened to "point taken" Eamonn. Bit rude there so you are!

Feeling he may have meant to type 'Quite' instead.

JRM is very (too) influential and IDS was Tory leader for a number of years, so could have led the country.

Armstrong is a complete ignoramus. Just cos she's the Alliance Chief Whip at Stormont, she thinks she owns the place. Completely up her own arse - a vindictive & nasty piece of work altogether.

Remember on Nolan once she was talking absolute shite about how the Republic still had a lot to do to become as liberal and progressive as the UK, funny I dont remember when the UK had a PM who was openly gay and non-white. Sure even Tony Blair didnt become a catholic until he was out of office for fear of the shit storm it would cause. Nope I cant stand her and I once voted Alliance but they seem to be annoying me more and more

Blair converting might have something to do with Catholics not allowed to be the British PM.

When and where did you make that one up?

A quick google should tell you that although the law is not fully explicit for PM there is something to it....

The law was only changed in the last couple of years methinks. Was the same for the line of succession to the throne (or whatever it’s called) until around the same time.

They say it was changed recently. Maybe the anti-catholic stance has diminished (on the surface) in Britain, but the House of Lords has COE leaders only in it. No influence from Catholicism. The idea is that having Catholics around the place advising the government and royalty and pushing their Vatican dogma, we’ll we couldn’t have that, could we?

Anyway, I wouldn’t be fooled by the removal of the Catholic monarch/PM thing. Britain from the top, is as still sectarian as anything you’d have seen at the time of Henry 8 or the setup of Guy Fawkes.

Duchess of Kent was received into the Catholic church in 1994. Both Jacob Rees Mogg and Ian Duncan Smith are Catholics.

THE towering figure of Irish broadcasting. Could mix both heavy interviewing and light-hearted chat with equal aplomb.

Looking at the figures Boris will win this election by a very large margin.

Trump continually sticking his oar in is no help to him. Also, if no Brexit party pact, then it's bound to split at least some of the Tory vote. Either way, I do think it's heading for another coalition, this time without the DUP hopefully.

Did anyone catch Primetime last night on this issue and if so anything worth noting?

An unnamed official in an unnamed county might have ran up big, unsubstantiated bills on a credit card.
In other news, dog regurgitates man's homework while Miriam O'Callaghan pleads "Won't somebody pleeeease think of the children".

In spite of the mini-euphoria and popularity-boost (because a border was to be avoided) that has occurred since the Taoiseach and BJ came up with a compromise deal, it may come to be seen in time that it wasn't really Varadkar's finest hour. In reality, it is not a good deal for Ireland as it could still result in a No-Deal default at the end of 2020. The UK has to make up it's mind by mid-next year if they want to extend the transition period, even though Phil Hogan may not even have fully selected his negotiating team by then.

Though a huge gamble to take, it may have paid off if Varadkar/EU let the October 31st date expire without a deal, as the Benn Act would kick in and BJ would be bound to it, no matter what he said to the contrary. This would surely have brought a 2nd ref. closer than where it is now.
