General discussion / Re: Brexit.
« on: February 13, 2019, 01:49:23 PM »
So just to clarify that Guardian article.

When they talk about her deal are they referring to the original backstop one that got defeated, or the recent one that seeks to tear up the backstop?

The latter WC.

The original deal is seen as dead in the water after the historic defeat so the only way it will get through now is with the Backstop ammendment which the EU have steadfastly said will not be changed.

Brits pinning their hopes on the fact that the EU have in the past done last minute deals to get problems sorted, but it is the riskiest of risky strategies when the EU have made it abundently clear that this wont be happening as it was the Brits who put the back stop into the agreement in the first place.

I don't get that from reading it. It seems to be the former - May apparently stalling so that the Brits, her own MP's, are forced into accepting her original deal, or face a long delay

(there is only one deal)

Is that not what yer man Ollie was supposed to have said very loudly in a Brussels bar the other night and ITV are all over it like a rash as their reporter was in earshot.


Also turns out that the backstop was not something the Irish Gov/EU came up with on their own and imposed it on the UK, Teasie and Co were also involved in its creation from the get go as it was meant to be the transitional status.
That won't please the DUPers.

Teasie is going to throw some glitter on this old deal and look to force it through by threatening all and sundry with their worst fears and then she's going to ride off into the sunset come the summer.

I was watching that last leg on channel 4 one night and Alistair Campbell was on it. Now he is a gobshite with plenty to answer for but what he said pretty much summed it up. May negotiated the backstop then has went back to the Eu saying she didn't want the backstop she negotiated. She's a fool.

McCambridge had a very good game on saturday. He had been getting rave reports prior to the championship but maybe didn't do it so much in antrim but definitely lived up to the billing at the weekend. Possibly more suited to midfield than the forward line looking at him. Probably had a better game than McManus and you'd rarely hear that said.

Ross Carr played football at the top level for years so I'm sure has heard plenty and seems like a decent enough sort so thought it must have been rough if he'd been on about it... If it was some random guy I'd have said that too.

He was fond of a good auld expense claim. I don't know the full ins and outs but I suspect if you google you should find it out.

I still haven't forgiven the offaly ref Padraig Horan(I think it was him) for our game against wexford the year we should have beat them with Liam Watson getting more or less assaulted by Dave Guiney every time he got the ball and barely ever getting a free then Codd putting them in front at the bitter end when the game was in the mix. Damn offaly refs...

Still really feel for Cushendall :( Such a great 2nd half performance and they must be gutted.

Read on twitter the derry ref wasn't too good. Mcatamney came on and near straight away he gave him a red for a second yellow but he never got a first ;D

Come on antrim and hold out for the last 5.

A wonderful mp she is too ;D

I had never heard of Kevin McCarthy before so didnít realise he actually was a Kerry senior since 2 years ago. Google also threw up a few issues with him which is maybe why we didnít see him last year  ???

Bogieman yesterday just showed Kerry football is better than Antrim football. The main embarrassment is that post - not sure if the parts that make sense or the parts that donít are the most embarrassing.

Great run by stendas. Hopefully theyíll push on in the senior championship now. Would be good to see a few teams outside the usual suspects challenging.

That Kevin McCarthy boy would be better than any forward  in Antrim.
