NI sends a tricolour to the EU
Comment: Unionists aren’t happy!
They lost a seat they had held for 40 years.
The psychological impact of that should be lost on no-one.
NI was set up to placate Ulster Unionism
Now 57% in NI don’t vote for Unionist parties.
Remain and the backstop have been given majority support by the people of NI.
AND . . . .
the EU and Ireland stand firm. No hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland
We need a legal Treaty guarantee of that. Backstop ahoy!
Scotland elects an international SNP trio
One grew up between Scotland and Saudi Arabia
One is a French citizen
The other worked in Brussels for years
Comments: Just to underline they are Scots, not Brits
And Scotland has an international outlook
And will be Independent
English Query: At this crucial time of Brexit,
How could Scotland possibly do this?
The Brexit Party swept the boards in England,
demanding a “No Deal” Brexit,
They have nothing further to discuss with the EU
And then Nigel Farage announced they should be part of the UK negotiating team
BUT . . . .
The EU has said negotiations are closed
“There will be no further negotiations”
Comment: For the series
“No Deal Party is better than a Bad Deal Party”
The British Conservative and Labour Parties lost votes hand over fist
Comment: The Tories hadn’t managed to deliver Brexit
Labour hadn’t managed to position itself on Brexit
Query: Isn’t it time the UK parties realised they can have either
Brexit or the UK?
They can’t have both.
And triangulating is a waste of time
As we have seen to date
Remember: No law says the UK has to have a Labour or Tory Party
Comment: Maybe their time is drawing to a close.
Ireland’s still counting . . . .
PS An ex-RUC piper led an INLA (Irish National Liberation Army)
Up the Falls!!! To the Republican Plot!!!
Comments: I think that is what the Volunteer wanted.
Otherwise whoever organized the funeral could have opted for a republican piper
Bet that was the piper’s first time!
Up the Falls. Into the Republican Plot!
How our worlds have shifted .
Well done the organisers and piper!
“She played very well” said a mourner
“Her “Amhran na Fiann” was lovely”
Piper: “Every half-crown counts in these straitened times!
I play for all communities
Comments: He who pays the piper . . .
Music and Funerals know no boundaries .
