Scrap useless Northern Ireland Protocol, urges Foster, as Johnson threatens EU (Arlene Foster, Daily Telegraph)

    Typical Foster. She wanted her cake ( she railed against May’s deal which would have avoided this mess and lost all her leverage in the ensuing election) and then Johnson delivered the NI Protocol which he patently doesn’t understand. Scrap it and the entire deal is liable to fall apart not to mention yet another blow to UK trustworthiness and competence.

    But the real issue here and deep down she knows it, is that the little Englanders and most of GB do not give a flying frig about NI and to be honest don’t really see the DUP or any NI resident as fully British. Johnson might use the NI issue as leverage to soften up some parts of his “deal” with the EU (he is pissed that in the end Brexit did indeed mean Brexit) but this is certainly not out of love for an energy and money sapping godforsaken province, an antediluvian relic of history, never fully British or Irish.

    Foster has made her bed. She should have been cleverer but no one like an NI siege-mentality unionist not to squander an opportunity.

      I’ll give you some news – most people on the mainland couldn’t give a toss about Ireland north or south.
      They think life here is a combination of Father Ted and Mrs Brown’s Boys and everyone is down the pub getting pissed on Guinness and waiting for instructions from Brussels.
      Ireland’s obsession with the UK isn’t reciprocated, I’m afraid.

      Dry your eyes mate …

        Imagine if they’d given Ireland even a passing thought before Brexit, things might have gone smoother. Haha jk they didn’t give any aspect of leaving a moment’s thought.

        you’re saying little englanders arent obsessed with ireland?

        wouldnt have guessed that, in fairness, charger

        Charger, the original post is making precisely the point that the Brits don’t give a damn about Northern Ireland so no you haven’t any news.

        It’d be good if people in the rest of the UK did think about Northern Ireland though because they keep pretending they are an island with no land-border. Imagine being so ignorant you didn’t even know where you’re own country’s borders were.

          1. Nigel

            Defending the UK by insisting that the ignorance and indifference of the British appiles to the ENTIRE island of Ireland, not just part of it. Good job.

            I won’t repeat the point that Bitnboxy has made about Arlene Foster going against Teresa May and now finding herself in a mess partly of her own doing. But I will remind you that she was responsible for the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. Remember that Admiral? You were saying on here recently how a skilled politician she was. Just forgetting rather important things again conveniently?

          3. george

            Charger, if they don’t care about the North, which is part of the UK, then obviously they don’t care about the South. Try to keep up, old bean.

            That’s interesting, isn’t it?

            I never notice these things as I primarily use the app, which only show specific avatars, like mine or yours.

        @Charage Was it something I said? Lol!

        As I often say to crazy GiggidyGoo (your equal loony opposite on that same dank coin)…

        Do one. You know what I said is true.

    “Mr Sefcovic is under considerable pressure after the commission last week briefly invoked the Article 16 override mechanism to allow Brussels to block the shipment of vaccines from the EU into Northern Ireland”

    per the FT (which I had become accustomed to reading for a balanced reference for Brexity issues)

    front page story this morning

    is this strictly true? that they actually invoked/implemented this Article 16 for some period of time? or are now even the likes of the FT getting in on Tory sabre rattling? disappointing….

    The DUP urged people to vote for this unmitigated disaster though, no?

    He says “I can’t imagine that’s what they planned”- he should have been involved in the planning! The DUP were in power in NI and told people to vote for Brexit without knowing what the plan was?

    1. Kolmo

      The DUP were paid at least £435,000 from “donors” to circumvent electoral laws in England, they were _duped_ into thinking that they were important by elements in the tories, they were mere cogs in a larger plan, they were so predictably and easily manipulated using their version of a brexit to solidify a british border in Ireland regardless of their utterances to the contrary. Sympathy for their self-inflicted position is very thin. Nowhere else in Europe would the DUP be regarded as a reasonable party, I hope history moves on without their worldview poisoning and retarding any type of progress.

  4. Shitferbrains

    Snarlene is clever enough to put the wind up the gubbermint of the repubalic who are terrified of the border, it’s prone to violence inhabitants and the complete inability of the DF to patrol it let alone hold it.

  5. RuilleBuille

    This us exactly what Paisley and Foster campaigned for and are now unwilling to own it.

    How many times do the English stiff the unionists before they cop on?

  6. V aka Frilly Keane

    What I find missing it all the talk from Arlene and about Arlene
    Is that Arlene Foster herself left the UUP
    So she could share her objections and vote No to the GFA with the DUP

    Tis gas now how they hang on to the very same GFA with the same crass grit as an NRA (in liquidation) spokesperson
    from my cold dead hands stuff

    Or in Sammy’s case
    from my cold dead filthy dirty hands ಠ ೧ ಠ
