So are these twats so annoyed because the ILA is going to be passed?

The fact that people vote DUP makes me think you should have to pass some form of IQ test before being allowed to vote.

Bigotry has nothing to do with intelligence as Jim Allister is living proof.

BREAKING NEWS

It has been revealed that Edwin Poots did NOT consult with DUP officials regarding the deal struck with the Secretary of State and when it comes to nominating Paul Givan as First Minister he needs those votes. Very very interesting development as we may actually NOT get the support regarding this deal. Will we have another stalemate? Stay tuned folks.

Poots nominated him anyway!! Should be good craic over the next few days.

20 against 4 for. I don't know where this will end up.

Dodds and Co in Westminster making life difficult for Pootsy but he plunders on with his man Givan.

Time to pull up a chair and get the popcorn out.

Yet again it takes the British Government, a useless, hateful Tory government at that, to deliver for those who identify as Irish in NI - because SF are even more useless

Abortion, same sex marriage and now an Irish language act

Seems to me NI would be better off just going back to direct rule from Westminster, because the British Government stepping in is the only way NI is getting any positive change as it is
Yes because SF famously opposed all 3 of those things.... the obsession is unbelievable.
They chickened out on the abortion issue

And they got none of the three implemented, it took the Brits to do that

Surely indicates British rule would be better because it can actually, you know, do stuff

Also if the Sinn Fein supporters on this forum are anything to go by, a lot of them are conservative and anti-same sex marriage and abortion, so I doubt they're very happy with these things
Was the DUPíers blocking all 3, not SF. Or are you too blinded by your anti-SF obsession to acknowledge that?

He willfully chooses to misunderstand how power sharing in Stormont works (or not in most cases) and it is the DUP who are either intransigent or break their promises.
I understand full well how it works

It doesn't work

And it certainly doesn't work with the parties involved

It is quite the irony to see the Brits come to the rescue, I thought SF supporters were very much against that kind of thing!

I agree that Stormont in its current form is unsuitable for substantial change to any institutions as we well know but don't think this is down to the DUP and the Shinners as the DUP have made it clear they'll hold their noses not matter what taig is sitting across the table from them.
The DUP have triggered the petition of concern 87 times or the likes since they've been in joint power. They don't want those pesky taigs about the place

What is interesting now is that with the possible exception of Tipp  it isn't the old firm teams that are driving the changes in the game.

If Limerick keep racking up AI's then expect a "change" somewhere in the game.

A bit like "over physical" Clare in the mid 90's. Every committee room decision seemed to go against them.

Sinn Fein will get shafted by the Tories on this Öcanít believe they are going to trust them on it and nominate a DFM
Will they? Iíd say itíll be similar to the abortion and gay marriage issue in that the Brits stepping in allows both sides to save face.

Do you trust the Tories to keep their word?
Iíd trust a Tory about as far as I could throw Big Ben. But I donít see them caring enough to shaft us here, at the end of the day they want Stormont to work and to not be annoying them.

they need Stormont as they know the NIP is for staying in some form and someone has to take the fall for that as well.

currently Stormont is useful to the Tories so passing this culture bill won't cost them a second thought no matter what their mate Doddsy says.

Much being made of the rocks score back in 2005 but that was very much the exception and the reason it's still clear in our minds but now every team has four or five lads capable of landing points from their own 45 and it isn't all S&C.

There's something to be said about the rims alright as I had a look at some old balls and the rims are far prouder on them than the current balls meaning more aerodynamic lag.

I don't mind high scoring games in itself, its' the free takers trudging down the park into their own half that slows everything down and probably makes the games seem more stop start.

Referees are more inclined to let a lot of the "half" fouls go come championship so it'll be interesting how that goes in the first set of games in Munster and Leinster.

As said before Stormont has one more life left.

What is the alternative?

I would be more positive. Whilst I can see things getting worse first ultimately Stormont will work. Whilst we are still in UK Stormontís powers just revert to Westminster (I.e. SoS and NIO). They will do what the can to create political pressure for Stormont to come back.

Even in a United Ireland the same pressures will exist - just replace Westminster with Dublin.

But to even get to a UI you need to convince the people of RoI that this is a good idea. People will ask the obvious questions. What will it cost and what do I get for it? Right now the answers to those questions are (i) a lot and (ii) a problem. Itís not attractive. The more dysfunctional NI is the less attractive a UI will become.

Stormont has to work. The people of NI need it to work and Irish Nationalism needs it to work.

To extend that I also think unionists need it to work.

We all need it to work.

My point being that in the past many republicans thought it was in their interests for NI not to work. By now only the extremely hard of thinking could still be of that opinion

Equality is the issue and every attempt at equality is deemed to be a gift from unionism and that is wrong even when the facts are staring them in the face.

If it's not 50/50 policing, it'll be the ILA, it'll be not having a nationalist justice minister or something else. All bigotry dressed up as something else.
Heck wasn't Jim Allister complaining that too many nationalists were passing the bar exams and something needed to be done to address this imbalance.

WRT approving the DUP (Joint) first minister, the Shinners need to be not seen as the intransigent ones yet hold Poots to the NDNA and force it through and show who are the intransigent ones..

As a nation, no matter what sport, the Scots have cornered the market in playing well and losing. They have dominated this game.
Punished for mistakes. Plucky losers.

Temple bar still have their mad prices even though its outdoor service, no live music or Americas around to cod.




Your in the most expensive area of the fifth most expensive city in Europe, that looks about right.

I never really get people who complain about the price of pints or food. If you don't want to pay those prices go somewhere else. Get a carryout, stay at home or whatever. Taking a picture and putting it on the internet - It's up there with the woman who left a bad review because the restaurant wouldn't give her just hot water and a cup so she could use her own teabag.

Don't go.

Do you ask the price of a pint before you order, everywhere you go?

No. I couldnít tell you the price of pint. Iím not a penny pincher. If I go to temple bar I bring plenty of 50s or if I go to a nice hotel I know Iím paying nice hotel prices. If I go down the local for an hour, £20 might do me. I donít go to a place and moan about the price of a pint. I find it shitty. Just donít go. Or go somewhere else.

£4+ a pint down our way with the local hotel £5.10 a pint and it's far from high end.

Don't think the brewery's have put their prices up and they've all been getting their covid grants when closed!

I think Boris should have a referendum, just in the north, regarding the protocal. Just a simple should it stay, or go. Im convinced it would pass and the dup would be sidelined further with nowhere to turn.

The NI Protocol is an international trading agreement between the EU and the UK Government in London.

A bunch of idiots in Stormont won't get any say in it as if it's rejected something similar will need to put in its place.

Even this so called vote in 2024 on the NI protocol can only "amend" 5 items out of the whole protocol and then something needs introduced to replace these five items.
