    The Sun has a good exclusive from Trump.
    Soft Brexit will kill a US trade deal.

        This would be The Sun exclusive that every other paper picked up and is leading on in their later editions and which dominantes the morning news cycle.
        Cracking interview engineered by Rupert Murdoch and “facilitated ” by Nigel Farage.
        Meanwhile the SJW snowflakes protest with Baby Trump.
        A clearer example of how power,influence and persuasion works in politics you couldn’t hope to find.
        Still,Varadkar has always got his pal Brandy for Breakfast Druncker.

          OK, lets look at this simply.
          A fractured EU is in Putin’s interests.
          Sasamach makes the EU look unstable.
          May was given instructions by the EU on a soft Sasamach.
          May passed these instructions on to her cabinet.
          Bojo and Davis, realising the gig was up, legged it.
          Along comes Putin’s creature to tell Britain that it’s hard Sasamach or nothing and that Bojo would be a good Taoiseach.
          This information is passed on to the British people in arguably the lowest of the gutter press.
          Power, influence and persuasion indeed.

          So, tell me again about taking back control?

          A fractured EU is in Putin’s favour.
          Sasamach helps destabilise the EU.
          May left the last EU summit clear that a soft Sasamach is better for everyone.
          May passed this information on to her cabinet.
          Bojo and Davis, realising the gig is up, fled the village.
          Along comes Putin’s creature to tell Britain that, if they want a trade deal at some point in the future, it’s a hard Sasamach or nothing. Oh, and by the way, that Bojo would make an excellent Taoiseach.
          This information is passed to the British electorate via, arguably, the vilest of the gutter press.
          Power, influence and persuasion indeed.

            No edit option either so I can’t even remove one.

          It might seem reasonable on paper, but you’re asking a fruitcake with extra nuts.

          You know the kind of answer you’re going to get.
          – Is that ‘reasonable’?

          That’s right, it isn’t.

        Of course arms is a substantial part of British manufacturing and after the Falklands, sales went through the roof. Post Brexit they be able to supply to any tin pot dictator they wish, but expect the odd mini war here and there just to showcase the hardware.

          Course they did and if they had not Hitler would of had his new world order
          And thank god the free world stopped the Germans
          Ireland would of just been an official slave nation
          The Jews would of been exterminated I
          Gays would of been exterminated
          Slavic people as well
          We would have no special needs personal as every cripple and mentally handicapped baby would of been aborted
          And cian maybe you might of been exterminated before birth

      You have never heard the saying ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’ so. That principle, albeit well diluted, still applies today. If a choice has to be made between Berlin and London, Berlin will win every single time.

          Ex colonists always attract immigrants from the post colonies, it is the main reason why so many black English now. That, proximity, and the attraction of another English speaking country meant a lot of Irish settled in England.

          What is your point?

            Paddy IS Blighty because you’d be hard pushed to find an English person without an Irish somewhere in their background.

            Seriously, do you actually think like this in real life or is it a windup persona? You have a Brexit government akin to Stevie Wonder driving a bus and you are trying to score cheap points about this nonsense?

          2. Ollie Cromwell

            Nope – it’s a very simple point which you seem unable to grasp.
            Because of the historically close connections between the UK and Ireland Varadkar would have achieved far more for this country had he chosen to forge an alliance over Brexit.
            As it is he has aroused deep suspicions in the North and outraged many of Ireland’s traditional supporters in the UK over the minor issue of the Irish border all for his own political advantage.
            The art of politics is making the best of the hand you’re dealt – he’s simply proven that Ireland remains craven and supine camp followers of Brussels.
            Whatever his faults Bertie Ahern would have handled Brexit with far aplomb and skill.

          3. Cú Chulainn

            We tried the ‘alliance’ idea. It didn’t work. In essence we are genetically the same people. Only very minor differences. So, the division is ultimately both sad and unproductive. It will likely stay that way so long as one side think there’s is the only way.

          4. SOQ

            Bertie Ahern has made his opinions on the border very clear and are indistinguishable from Leo’s. No border is not some trivial ‘nice to have’, it is an absolute red line and supported by every single party on this island.

            I find it interesting how personal your criticisms of EU and Irish leaders are yet very silent on the obvious incompetence of some of the Tory crew.

          5. ReproBertie

            “Because of the historically close connections between the UK and Ireland Varadkar would have achieved far more for this country had he chosen to forge an alliance over Brexit.”
            It is in the UK’s interests to make the EU look both weak and bullying while trying to court Ireland over Sasamach.

            Sasamach is not in Ireland’s interests and Ireland was never more than an afterthought during the Sasamach campaign. How much time was spent discussing the border before they realised it would destroy their dreams of a hard Sasamach?

            Ireland’s future lies with the EU and the Taoiseach is well aware of that. It really sticks in the craw of the Sasamachs that Ireland won’t jump to their tune.

          6. Sentient Won

            ReproBertie,

            Did you ever meet an establishment talking point you didn’t slavishly regurgitate?

            The EU is falling apart thanks to the globalist agenda of uncontrolled migration and the adoration of fictional financial instruments. (and becasue Junker is a power-tripping drunk)

            The UK will leave the EU. Boris Johnson will be PM.

            Putin and Trump will refashion the post-EU world in their own image and Putin will give Trump all the dirt on Clinton and Obama’s shady Uranium One deal.

            They’re going down and there’s nothing you can do about it.

            So sit back and enjoy the show!

            uranium one? that old breitbart chestnut? that’s been investigated by the FBI and there’s nothing conclusive to bring charges on.
            jaysus, and you accuse others of being a stooge? hypocrite doesn’t even come close.

          8. Sentient Won

            The same FBI who failed to charge HRC with illegal use of a private server on which she shared classified material with unknown foregin entities?

            The same FBI who paid for a fake dossier to justify spying on the Trump campaign?

            The same FBI whose former head of counter intelligence spent yesterday squirming under a grilling from Congress and refusing to answer their questions?

            Yes, because that FBI is sooooo trustworthy.

            Expand your thinking.

            trump has had a wig on about the fbi ever since he fired james comey, who talked openly about russian interference in trump’s election.

    A record 125,000 foreign students have applied to study at British universities this autumn, including over 50,000 from EU, up 2% on last year.

    1. ReproBertie

      Hogwash you say? Yet in 2017…

      “Applications from EU students for places at UK universities have dropped by more than 7% according to latest figures, a committee of MPs investigating the impact of [Sasamach] on higher education has been told.
      It is the first decrease in applications from EU students to study in the UK after almost a decade of unbroken growth and will inevitably be blamed on last year’s vote to leave the EU.”

      This was before the UK government’s guarantee that students registering in 2018 would be able to complete their studies irrespective of the outcome of Sasamach.

            so you’re on the rock and roll then, thought as much. lack of capitals is both a personal protest and punishment for allowing myself to converse with profligates such as thou.

    Ireland mortgages borrowers are treated like Digicel,junk paying highest mortgage rates in Europe-why ?
    Legacy lending is the govt answer,but the banks were given adequate reserves for a ‘fresh start’ so why wold new borrowers be paying for the reckless lending of the past.

    ‘Ireland continued to have the highest average interest rate* across the euro area on all new mortgages agreed in May, at 3.21 per cent. The rate varied considerably across countries, with the average for the euro area being 1.80″

          The comment you made up above that was to Cian, I think it was, about him being exterminated before birth and all the rest of it, was a shocking read. I hope you bombard the embassies of all the countries you’re up in arms over, at least that would be productive. Good day to you, sir.

    SOQ, certain genetic ensembles are more prone to gall stones than others. An aunt and uncle have had them, the pain is supposed to be woeful. They are both fiery like me, so I need to watch it.

    I did try a meditation class but fell asleep and snored, haven’t returned, meditating at home is good time-out.
