    Guaranteed me botty. Nothing is guaranteed, nothing has been agreed. This is a face saving exercise only – and the Ratforleo campaign hail it as a Kennyesque “seismic shift”.?!?

      An accurate apt description. The demeanor of the three of them at the announcement (like a bowl of green jelly) was one of one great lie. And they drag Helen McEntee into the farce. I wonder why? And of course Varadkar uses another (he thinks) well chosen phrase.

      No deal until all agreed or no border no matter what. Which is it because it can’t be both?

      The second is backed by a bilateral agreement which if compromised will violate international law and no hard border in Ireland means that at the very least an Irish Sea migration customs. IMO the Irish team have played a blinder because unlike their opponents, they were rock solid in their objective.

          Back of the net.
          Only a Spud would describe Ireland’s biggest trading partner as opponents.

            good man – agreeing with yourself

            I’d imagine that’s an indicator of your primary sexual activity, too

          2. some old queen

            That’s gay spud to you sweetheart, unless you have a problem with that too… which wouldn’t surprise me.

          3. Charger Salmons

            Not at all.
            I’m very partial to a British Queen covered in butter and pricked.
            Ooooer missus.

          1. some old queen

            You are nitpicking now. One of the items in this phase was about borders between the two jurisdictions and in particular the free movement of people. The next is about trade.

            Will the Irish and British be opponents there too? I doubt it but given the chaotic nature of Brexit so far, anything can happen.

        2. paddy apathy

          The opposite side in negotiations and they’ve already opposed to a number of proposals. Yeah, opponents.

    “And that will be England gone,
    The shadows, the meadows, the lanes,
    The guildhalls, the carved choirs.
    There’ll be books; it will linger on
    In galleries; but all that remains
    For us will be concrete and tyres.

    Most things are never meant.
    This won’t be, most likely; but greeds
    And garbage are too thick-strewn
    To be swept up now, or invent
    Excuses that make them all needs.
    I just think it will happen, soon.”

    The Irish Time abortion poll is attempting to programme reality rather than reflect it. Standard practice in the liberal cesspool of lies and deceit.

    Meanwhile, in the US there are on going investigations into the sale of dead babies by Planned Parenthood (founded by a eugenicist).

    How long after the engineered ‘repeal’ vote will the same start happening here?

    Don’t say you liberals weren’t warned.


    1. LW

      Zuppy! It’s been a while. The tide has turned on the issue of choice, even one of the FF members has changed position after hearing the facts. I’d say the polls are fairly reflective. This ráiméis about planned Parenthood is, as usual, utter tripe

      1. Zuppy International

        More lies from LW inside the liberal “safe space’ where there are no consequences for any actions.

        If anything the tide is turning the other way, particularly the the US where individual states are starting to defund Planned Parenthood.

        And the selling of dead baby body parts? It’s a real thing. Are you in favour of this practice coming here? If you want to continue debating me then I’m going to need a direct answer to that question.



    2. Nigel

      Trump’s DoJ investigates news as old as it is fake. The US right’s principled opposition to women receiving health care continues.

          1. Zuppy International

            Cheap shot. You’re better than that bisted.

            We’re talking 21st Century ‘medical’ practice here.

            Are you in favour of the commercial sale of dead baby body parts?


          2. Zuppy International

            And again broadsheet is altering my comments AFTER publication.

            That’s how i know I’m scoring points against the boo boo liberal mindset.

            What’s the matter ladies? Can’t handle the truth?

            Abortion is BINKYTOOTS and you know it.

          3. realPolithicks

            “And again broadsheet is altering my comments AFTER publication.”

            It’s scandalous how you conspiracy theorists are constantly being interfered with by the looney liberal media. I bet your friends over at fox would never do such a thing.

        1. Nigel

          A person so concerned with morality shouldn’t stoop to lying or embracing the arguments and words of liars. Or is the cause so pure anything can be justified? No wonder a panderer like Trump plays people like you like organs from hell do easily.

    I dunno.
    Here’s me thinking Leo wanted the North to stay in the Single Market and demanded an explanation as to how Blighty intended to leave the SM and CU and not operate a border.
    And the Sinners were insisting on NI being given special status in the UK.
    And Arlene Foster blows them both out of the water with a single ‘phone call.
    She is some operator.
    Not that you’d notice from all the media fawning in Dublin.

    1. some old queen

      If the British are serious about curbing immigration and they leave the customs union then having to produce a passport when travelling from NI to Britain is inevitable now.

      Hardly a score for The Ulster Taliban now is it?

  5. Charger Salmons

    Tough as old boots is Arlene.
    Saw her father gunned down by the Shinners and watched her school bus being blown up.
    Leo’s toughest test in his life was deciding to come out and [dismissive euphemism for gay people].
    I know who I’d want next to me in the trenches.

    1. Brother Barnabas

      Heading down the homophobic route would be adding a whole new level of ugliness to yourself, Charger. Maybe have a think about that one.

      1. Charger Salmons

        He’s gay.Get over it snowflake.
        I’m talking about his political ability not his sexuality.

        1. Brother Barnabas

          would be / conditional, you dim monkey

          And a reasonable comment given what you’ve shown yourself capable of

          (I was expecting you to reply with your GiggidyGoo sign in, so you’re not entirely predictable)

          1. Charger Salmons

            This is a new one.
            Racist,homophobic AND using an alter ego.
            And I haven’t even had breakfast yet.

          2. Charger Salmons

            Hang on,just let me check.

            Nope.Definitely haven’t killed six million Jews this morning.
            Do you know how ridiculous you look ?

          3. GiggidyGoo

            How dare you BB. If you resort to the ‘you have multiple logins’ line, then you’re not worth the effort.
            But to be clear – I have one log in.

          4. Brother Barnabas

            OK, I suppose.

            Just be careful not to cross the line, please. Don’t want any of that weird stuff.

    2. bisted

      …Leo’s father and mother’s ancestors suffered centuries of brutal british colonial opression while Arlene is the descendant of planters…I doubt if either would be in the trenches…Arlene would be a green grassey slopes kind of a girl and Leo would definitely be fighting them on the beaches…

      1. bisted

        …somewhere in the Aegean for sure so he could sail over to Galipoli to see if he could spot you and Arlene pop your heads over the trenches…he’ll be scanning the horizon for tinfoil hats above the parapet…

      2. Catherine costelloe

        Leo’s father came to UK to progress his doctor career, Leos Irish ma got training as a nurse in UK…..that’s not oppression. Its opportunity.

        1. bisted

          …their grandparents and great grandparents might beg to differ…british colonial oppression in India and Ireland is historical fact…

        2. Charger Salmons

          A lot of Blighty’s former colonies maintain strong links with Britannia – they value the positive impact of the Empire and consign the bloodier aspects of it to the distant past.
          Modern Ireland is the same with just the odd Japanese soldier still in the woods convinced the war isn’t over.
          It’ll be interesting to see how many Irish people who had to go to the mainland to find work post-crash will decide to stay or come home now the economy is booming.
          Out in rural (i.e most of ) Ireland very few I would think.

          1. bisted

            …mainland…love it…I’d say you are no stranger to the woods yourself Charger…the backwoods anyway…

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        I’m watching Trolls Holiday with a sick kid. She has no interest and I’m loving it.
        Living the dream.
        It’s grey and dreary out. Screw that.

    How did I forget Devo in the list of overrated bands?
    They just popped on Spotify…. terrible.
