    Sit back and watch the wheels fall off this one.

    Labour majority government within 12 months.

      They may as well keep their posters up.
      OUL HOOP TRIVIA: there were three general elections in Ireland within 18 months (1981/82).

    Good riddance to May, Trump, and Vardkar soon.

    Why FG just doesn’t merge with the DUP and Brit Tory party beats me. Plenty of over-65 fellow-traveller sympathizers and sneaking regarders in the DLR constituency for a start.

      On behalf of myself, and other over 65’s, I resent that comment. Many of us were of the last generation in this country who actually cared enough to protest. Enough of the lazy, facile generalisations.

        Except now you’re sitting around getting fat while we pay your pensions and medical care. You’re the lazy, facile generation with the equity.

          You actually think that? :-) I apologise, you are not just lazy and facile you are (automatic ban for robust language)……

          Umm, no. Over-65s paid for pensions in advance; the pension fund was raided repeatedly by the government in recent years to pay for current debts.

          As for medical care, the current model is that anyone who can possibly afford it pays insurance companies – a model that would arguably be much cheaper if the same payments or lower were instead made into a government-run National Health scheme through taxes, cutting out the profiteering middleman.

        First past the post. In the absence of a strong center, the system lends itself to polarizing the political spectrum.

    Yikes! Clearly a reference to Jeremy Corbyn’s support of The Republicans in “The Struggle” in The North.
    I currently live in Belfast, voted not for Labour, nor for Conservative last week . Despite the claim of Westminster that they represent Ireland (Top Bit), in a General Election, there’s no direct vote for the two main parties here.
    However, it appears that the Top Bit of Ireland may crown the Queen. I don’t think so. The DUP are so right wing, they’d pick up votes in North and South Carolina. Anti-Gay Marriage, Anti-blood donation from gay men, anti- everything from a diverse and progressive society.
    I think there’s a real chance of another election (Blimey!) ultimately.

    Meanwhile on Twitter :
    “The Conservative and Unionist Negotiating Team head to Brussels next week. Hopefully they’ll come up with a nice acronym”
