If SF were in any way concerned about the impact of brexit, why didnít they take their seats in Westminster?

Issues regarding anti-Irish/catholic attacks and Irish language had to be brought up by the Scottish parliament and that Welsh party recently. SF are the only ones able to speak out about the DUP/Tory deal and itís impact on brexit, so why the f**k arenít they doing it?!

Thankfully they are not in Westminster.

Imagine them on the floor of Westminster criticising the Brexit process and trying to frustrate any decision making. The pro Brexit red top English papers like the Sun the Daily Mail and the Express would have a field day given their old connections with the IRA. It would only add to the little Englander mentality and harden attitudes even more over there. The best thing they can do is stay completely out of the process and watch it all unravel.

That's it in a nutshell. Be part of the process inside Westminster and become the bad guys, or stay out of it and watch the world burn.

Thereíll always be a little Englander mentality. Surely they could call the tories/DUP out on their antics, and if theyíre so concerned about lgbt or Irish language, then go and highlight them where they can affect it most. Make their voices heard.

SF want to break the link with England....not keep it going. Goes  against what they are about.

Northern Ireland and the Stormont assembly is British manufactured. It also recognises partition (and NI as part of the UK). Why do SF participate in that (well, did)?

Nolan  and Allister. What an ignorant combo. Hope RTE viewers see and appreciate what we have to endure.

Ben lowry, Jim Allister and some stuffy idiot tory sums up brexiteers. What a clusterfuck. All they needed was RDE and Seamy Bryson to put the cherry on top.

Once I seen Jim Allister on the panel, it was fairly obvious it was going to be chaotic with loads of shouting back and forth. Nolan was very poor in how he chaired the debate, he made Claire Byrne look good when you contrasted the styles.

Very little emphasis was put on the poll results which was the only thing of any real interest. All of the rest of the show was just repeating old arguments that most people are just fed up of listening to at this stage.

What were the poll results? For those of us who went to bed early.

Karen Bradley, the actual secretary of state for Northern Ireland, said:ďI freely admit that when I started this job, I didnít understand some of the deep-seated and deep-rooted issues that there are in Northern Ireland. I didnít understand things like when elections are fought, for example, in Northern Ireland Ė people who are nationalists donít vote for unionist parties and vice versa.Ē
