    It’s probably too little too late to save her but impressive to see May finally come out fighting.
    Tusk’s crass Instagram stunt will be the equivalent of Obama’s disastrous Back of the Queue intervention in the Brexit referendum.
    Even hardened Remainers object to the smug sarcasm of unelected Brussels bureaucrats.
    Thanks Donald.You’ve done Brexit a huge favour.

      Looking at May’s body language and diction, that was not fighting. That was more cowering with hands on head on the beaches, allies strewn at distance, throwing the last grenade aimlessly towards the European mainland and eyeing up a safe bunker.

        I agree,she’s dead woman walking.
        If she limps through to March 29th 2019 she’ll be gone shortly afterwards.
        But,and I hope you’ll allow me more knowledge and expertise of the British psyche than most on here,I think the EU27 in Salzburg,egged on by a strutting martinet French president desperately trying to shore up record levels of unpopularity at home,overplayed their hand yesterday.
        Whatever their political views many Brits take huge umbrage at seeing their prime minister – any prime minister – humiliated in the way she was.
        I mean low-rent,crass Tusk Instragram levels of humiliation.
        Now,that’ll play well to the blowhards on here who applaud anyone who kicks the Brits.
        But in serious political terms which could eventually affect the lives and incomes of everyone in Ireland the EU played a their hand poorly.
        I’m no fan of May but Tusk,Druncker and that gurning Belgian clown Guy Maurice Marie Louise Verhofstadt will come to regret their actions.

          What are you like. GB is leaving. The EU set out their stall. GB still doesn’t get it. You have the offer: Norway lite and allow the border to be soft. How hard is that to understand. May wasn’t humiliated. She was given the opportunity to look tough and British bulldog like. I’ll let Johnny Foreigner who’s boss. Then she can say you have the best deal. Get this: GB has just lost the war. And you did it all on your own. When GB and Ireland stood together.. but you guys have lost the plot with your nasty attitude. Good luck. Which as you have an Irish passport, you have..!!

          It doesn’t matter what the EU negotiators do, it doesn’t matter in how reasonable a fashion the Irish government sets out it’s position, it’ll be spun in the most ridiculously ott way by the Tory press. Some leave voters will lap it up, but increasingly more will see through it.

    2. Not on your Nelly Too

      Same old mad Tory pretend. So transparent and desperate. That show wasn’t for anybody outside of the UK, barely meant for anybody outside Westminster. But you know that. You just comment the same predictable diatribe everyday. It’s boring. And as the comments have shown in the last few months, people are getting sick of the constant negativity.

      You aren’t helping but you knew that.

    Don’t get me wrong.
    Ireland has its butter and spuds and Guinness,even though that’s British owned.
    And there’s a host of American multi-nationals here paying virtually no tax.
    And,of course,there’s Paddy’s Day – famous the world over for people celebrating getting drunk like the Irish.
    But you don’t really have a lot of this do you ?

            …he’s got the oranges but he can’t manage the gagging technique…anyone…a few people on here good at gagging…

            And full marks for following an English team.
            Shame there was nothing for you in the League of Ireland.

        1. Ollie Cromwell

          Not quite as bad as Euro ’12.
          Ireland P3 L3 GF 1 GA 9
          The joint worst record ever in European Championships.
          Still,at least they actually made it to a tournament.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            doesn’t even scratch the surface- i love europe and love being part of it.

            any plans for tonight? heading down nostalgia lane… on YouTube… on your own…. again? all a bit post-brexit when you think about it.

          2. Ollie Cromwell

            I’m having some chums round for dinner.
            No doubt by then you’ll still be sat in your crusty underpants fighting battles on the internet.
            You should get out more Quentin.

          3. Ollie Cromwell

            We know who you like to pork Quentin,you dirty old man.
            You spend so long sat at your computer in your underpants you have to be chipped out of them with a toffee hammer.

      The only thing you can rely on Tony Connolly for is accurately reporting what the EU spin doctors say.
      When he removes his nose from Varadkar’s posterior.
      RTE like the rest of the Irish media including that clown Fintan O’Toole are spineless camp followers.

    Dramatic picture on the front of the New York Times to accompany their big round-up of all the evidence pointing to Putin influencing the American election.
    Trouble is in paragraph eight they admit ” there is a plausible case that Mr. Putin succeeded in delivering the presidency to his admirer, Mr. Trump, though it cannot be proved or disproved. ”
    A bit like the police saying we think we have a case but we just don’t have any evidence to prove it.
    More fake news BS from the New York Times which is like the Irish Times but even duller.

    1. jusayinlike

      That’s right Ollie, in 2 years the Mueller probe has found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

      Meanwhile everyone from the previous administration who worked with the doj or FBI

    2. jusayinlike

      – has been fired, and are facing criminal investigation.

      Shame the NYT seems more intent on blowing hot air opinion than actually reporting the news.

      It’s probably due to the deputy AG Rod Rosenstein being caught out trying to wire tap the Trump campaign during grand jury proceedings against disgraced FBI stooge Andrew McCabe.

      bunch savages……the animals are killing each other in London !
      “The Metropolitan Police said that there had never been any evidence that a person was attacking and dismembering cats, but news reports of a “Croydon cat killer” or “ripper” led to widespread public concern about the cats in the area, and resulted in more people coming forward with allegations. In all, more than 400 cases were reported, in several parts of London and the surrounding counties.”

        1. johnny

          According this headless cats now litter the area,with widespread ritual killing of cats-the brits huh-the place will become like “28 days’ after Brexit,Kate Moss is from there…….
          the boring NYT again :)

          1. Johnny

            The Brit palate can’t even distinguish between horse meat and beef,so anything’s possible there,looks like they trying frame the “irish foxes” plus ca change-no resources to conduct a proper investigation…..

    “There will be no withdrawal agreement if there isn’t a legal backstop. Let me be very clear, the Taoiseach & I will never sign a treaty that doesn’t ensure the UK commitments on Irish border are followed through,” Simon Coveney leaves the British Taoiseach in no doubt.
