General discussion / Re: Sinn Fein? They have gone away, you know.

Always thought for sf to really progress they needed rid of ones like her.
I assume you mean in Derry? Elsewhere, SF have done nothing but progress dramatically.

Martina Anderson may not have been the greatest political communicator but she spent 13 years in jail for her role in fighting for a wholly just cause and for that she has my respect. It's a mark of her character that she hasn't thrown the dummy out of the pram over how this was handled, accepted the reasons for it and remains committed to the party. Best wishes to her.

She isn't committed to SF. She's committed to the struggle.
Lesson here for everyone. Once you are past your usefulness, SF will dump you, no matter who you are.

She was primarily committed to the pound sterling

SF vote reduced overall

In Derry, as I mentioned.

Nationally, SF have been progressing dramatically, as I mentioned.

It dropped overall percentage share in the north. In the free state they were badly stagnating and then they became the party of protest which yes led to an unexpected revival, so much so some of their candidates were off on hols during the counts.

I've said many times, get them in South of the border , it will be very interesting

No sure if they are house. But Bicep, I mean sublime, orbital but better

I see in the 6 Cos  28 % identify as Irish, 33% as British and 33% as "Northern Irish"

A good clip around the back of the ear needed there

"I think the border does have an effect here. I think that the good effect of Donegal people is at times diluted when there is a high incidence say in Derry," Dr McCauley said.

"Then when the behaviour of people in Donegal is not as good as it should be, it is exaggerated when there is relative outbreak in Derry".

What in under jesus is he blabbering on about there?

General discussion / Re: 💩 DUP C*ntwatch - Arlene overboard!
« on: May 01, 2021, 03:09:13 PM »
Isn't it so that the new DUP leader will have to gain SF support before taking up the First Minister position?  if so, the chances of that happening are very low and a new election beckons.

SF will support it. The gravy train depends on it. It's a game

UI will be great economically long term, inevitable short term pain, we don't bring as much to the table as the south does. It has to and will happen

Yeah just reading some things here you would think they have gone but sadly not.

I would agree with most of what you say. The likes of Ballymena area or Wilson country(east antrim?) they probably just aren't going to lose seats. East Belfast and North Belfast are big variables for them. If they lost all of Belfast altogether would be a big blow. Lagan Valley I'm not familiar enough with though thought they were winning it easy enough. I must have a look at the votes in the last elections MLA wise and see what the score was there.

If the UUP had anything about them the DUP would be in much bigger bother however unfortunately the UUP don't have much about them at all these days.
I wonder if wee Robin Swann will have another dart at leading the UUP.  Doug Beattie seems a better bet than your boy Aiken too.

Beattie seems an alright sort. Swann is either the best in the world for his handling of COVID or the worst in the world depending who you talk to.

Aiken seems useless. This is a massive opportunity for the uup. They are doing nothing with it. (Not just foster resigning but the way brexit etc is panning out).

Beattie and swann are really likable, but would that be perceived as soft at a time like this

Ended up gettin the AZ last week, I have to say I had 2 bads days with it, unbelievable cramps and shakes

Good man Fear. Yeah, shivers and aches for a day or 2 with the AZ seems to be common enough.

Probably correct decision jog2

GAA Discussion / Re: Underage training
« on: April 30, 2021, 02:55:20 PM »
Does anyone think its crazy the way GAA clubs are now offering training for 4 and 5 year olds? I mean some of them won't even be in school!

There is now huge competition to recruit players/members this young in our area and I find it baffling.

We have always done it. Just games. There is an u6 hurling blitz in Derry
And do the referees get boxed in the head at them as well?   ;D

We take in school kids but some are 4. An hour a week and the coaches are mad in the head IMO.

Lol. haven't been at one yet, wouldn't be surprised. Ours is more like a run about, numbers were crazy last 2 weeks at that age ive been told, I think there is a danger at the age of 4-5 putting them off
