Apologies if this has been posted already.

One other comment- Tommy Gorman from RTE is worse than useless.
His latest classic question to Arlene Foster on Tuesday highlighted his lack of understanding of 'this place'
"Arlene- do you want to be remembered as the woman who re-introduced the border ?". He actually put this question to the leader of a party whose entire reason for existence  is to preserve the border!!

Ah cop on. There’s a world of difference between what we have now and a hard border with checkpoints. Everyone else seems to get what Gorman meant without being pedantic.

Listening to Gorman all week one would think the DUPUDA were the Government of the North and had about 60% of the population behind them.
Don't think there was a single word with SF, UUP, SDLP or Alliance.

Which one is propping up the Tories and vetoed the agreement? You have your answer.

Exactly Syferus ..... there are few media that know the N Ireland elected reps better than Tommy G  ....  on the Unionist side there are precious few actual politicians ...

Sounds like a deal is imminent. No leaks this time.

Any deal will be a likely fudgearama now. I hope Leo doesn't back track or accept some wishywashy wording that allows plenty of wriggle room.

Never, Never, Never ..............................  if there is a deal the brits will renege on it (as I said before the alleged first deal)

I do feel that whatever is agreed, there's a good chance the UK will renege on it at least partially

And again you vastly over-estimate for much Britain cares about NI to even be bothered enough to renege, nevermind the profound impact such action would have on their other agreements with the EU. You weren't right the first time, and you certainly aren't four days later.

Rupert Murdoch must have spoken personally  to Junkers.


https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2017/dec/08/brexit-border-eu-theresa-may-juncker-tusk-markets-live

The Sun gives May a boost this morning with a report that she has “won her fight with the EU” on the future role of the European court of justice – although Brexiters might not be quite as enthusiastic.

The EU had insisted that, post Brexit, issues concerning citizens’ rights and access to the single market must come under the remit of the ECJ. May has already conceded that the court would continue to have jurisdiction in Britain during any transition period.

The Sun reports – under the headline “We win, EU lose” – that this period will be a full decade, running until 2029. It admits the apparent agreement “risks infuriating Tory Brexiteers”.
