    Have to laugh at the daily express. Every front page for the past year has said the same thing “we must leave the eu now”

      In fairness, it’s ‘Your pension affected by XYZ’ every second day. “Get Us Out Of The EU’ all the others.

      It is a bit of a disturbing obsession, especially for what passes for a newspaper.

    I wonder does a Mexican website pour over the New York Post as if it has any import on their day to day lives?

    I wonder.

      I wonder how many Mexican websites there might be who don’t understand what you’re saying, or who’d care what you thought if they did.
      – Not sure I agree with you… Maybe I do…

        It’s a valid point – why the endless fascination with things that don’t matter to us, instead of a focus on relevant matters?

    before i read the garda strike/purge was called off, i was walking in this morning, and saw loads of cops around the roads, looking to catch out people using the bus lanes n stuff i’d say. they really are a miserable bunch.

      I would definitely feel a bit of schadenfreude at someone, who thought they’d get away with flouting traffic laws this morning, getting nicked unexpectedly whilst bombing down a bus lane on their way to work.

    Let me get this straight.
    Brexit was about sovereignty of British to rule themselves from Westminster, not Brussels.
    Judges rule that elected parliament in Westminster decides on Brexit, not the PM alone.
    So the people’s representatives, elected to parliament to govern, get to decide on Brexit.

    And the papers that backed Brexit object to this?

    1. SOQ

      Yes. Allowing the elected parliament have a say on what is decided is an affront to democracy apparently.

    2. Dόn Pídgéόní

      Yes. It’s the wrong kind of sovereignty. They are especially mad with the judges who speak french and are gay.

      Britain is the island beside this one. A ‘Giant Map of Britain’ would be a map of the island.

      A giant map of the UK would be the island beside us and a little bit on the top left of this island.

        Thanks for your enlightening point of information, I too have a rudimentary knowledge of geography. My point is that in shaping post-Brexit British identity I would be seriously worried if I was a citizen of Northern Ireland, especially if my perceived ‘Britishness’ and connection to a Parliament that was considering the realpolitik realities of hard and soft borders. If I was pro-Brexit, as the editor who made that banner presumably was, I would surely use the term UK and print a map of the entire United Kingdom and not merely a portion thereof.
        That British resident Daily Mail readers will be putting a map of the island of Britain on their (presumably grim) bedroom walls on Saturday morning and feeling like the United Kingdom is a little more safe through their act of tabloid patriotism is illustrative of a popular and establishment mindset which has potentially interesting consequences for the future of these islands.

    Joe, I will only consent to the Federation you propose if the Scots agree to take back the Nordies :-D
