Poor old David. See the veiled threat of violence once again. Its always been a constant undercurrent in Unionist speak.
       To share a Nobel peace prize with the great John Hume sickens me to my core. Two more different people you will never meet.

Unionism has always had that Democrats when it suits vibe & then something doesn't go their way it's Grand Old Duke of York time. Dont think the plebs will fall for it this time, one of the East Belfast 'Community Workers' had their number a couple of weeks ago.

Sam McBride's view on it was, Boris J. would have to take in lawyers to parliament to defend a border in the Irish sea- which Boris also maintains doesn't exist.

it isn't a border, it is a differential application of UK tax and health regulations .

boris and the torys don't give one shíte for the law as can be seen by how Matt Hancock is still in his position after being found to have broken the law..

Who's paying the DUP/UUP/TUV legal fees?

Can't imagine the Scottish Tories or Leave.EU giving a crap, maybe the guy who gives you a bigger back garden? If Jim Allister drops the case against the hotel near the Gaints Causeway it would be suspicious.

The Isle of Man is distancing itself from the UK and striking a bespoke fishing deal with the EU, seriously peeing off the Tory government.
Apparently Boris and his crew were ignorant about  IoM not actually being in the EU but just enjoyed EU benefits  due to having a relationship with the UK.
The IoM did not vote in the Brexit referendum.

https://www.thelondoneconomic.com/news/isle-of-man-jettisons-itself-from-uk-to-secure-fishing-agreement-with-eu-222046/

Isle of Man’s chief minister Howard Quayle

Speaking in the Tynwald, he said without access for EU boats in Manx waters there would be difficulty exporting island goods, making it a no-brainer for such an export-reliant industry.

He added: “I know that some people would have wanted a future where no foreign vessels were able to fish in our waters.

“If we had refused access to this limited number of EU vessels and as a result had not secured the goods part of the deal, Manx-caught products would have been subject to tariffs when sold into Europe.”

Mr Quayle added on the fisheries arrangements with the EU: “We will have the right to license these vessels and manage our waters in a way that puts sustainability of our waters, and our industry, at its heart.”

Hard to believe that 1 out of every 10 remain voters now think it was right to leave the EU.
Shows the difference some really poor Politicing makes, the Economic self harm argument remains exactly the same.

Has the EU's vaccination nightmare not punctured a large hole in that argument?

Up for debate but likely a temporary blip in the grand Economic scheme. The main Economic argument was / is cutting yourself off from the single market and the friction that that will bring, the trade deal is a piss poor replacement.

I know but it also relied upon the assumption that the single market was being run competently. This assumption is now weaker than it was at Christmas.
