  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Discussions of Ireland's quote-unquote neutrality tend to forget how driven by the domestic politics of the time it was. The Economic War was only over a year and the anti-Treaty IRA was still out there, bombing England and in contact...

    I'd also argue the Democratic politicians should just drop gun control - leave it to the states. Counterpoint: Chicago. Illinois does its best to regulate guns, but Indiana and its gun laws are right next door......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I've had Stiff Little Fingers' "White Noise" in my head the last couple of days, can't possibly think why... :-)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I would strongly suggest you not treat someone calling someone a tout - straight up trying to get them killed, in the wrong time and place - as "a friendly warning." And this is the second time they've done it...

    Is this as full of non-sequiturs as I think, or am I just overtired?...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I thought they had in-house religious nutcases to be funding? From "reading articles about Green Pastures' planning travails"-level knowledge Paisley has form for being in their corner but it doesn't seem to be party-wide... (Is Paisley being sensitive to the...

    Well now my "click the latest comment in the sidebar box" method seems lazy. :-)...

    ...do something about Brexit, to which all I can say is that Cromwell had the proper solution Invade Ireland, kill >10% of the entire population of the island, ethnically cleanse most of the rest, and pay off your debtors with...

    For ride-share, ride-share is enormously better than taxis I shudder to think of your personal carbon footprint to have accumulated the evidence to make that global claim. Or maybe - just maybe - you're massively overgeneralizing. (For instance, there's no...

    Sorry for your loss, Charlie. Glad to hear you're planning to take things a bit easy on yourself....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    My rebuttal is less based on logic, but OTOH it has longevity in its favour....

    Kate Hoey's still out there, lurking in the Brexit grass......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Small problem with unilaterally removing the deadline: "The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification referred to in...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    AFAIK both the Irish and UK government have stated that they will not implement a hard border under any circumstances including no deal. I'll set you the same challenge I've asked everyone who's brought this talking point up with me:...

    So your defence is that you were using Lyra's death as part of an intellectual game... to push facile "insights" about NI politics obvious to anyone who's paid a blind bit of notice, and inform us of an Alex Jones-style...

    If you'd told us "are we going to commemorate the centennial of the last time we burnt our economy to the ground to inconvenience The Brits by doing it all again, or are we going to jump the gun?" would...

    What's actually on the menu is that a certain mafia clan with strong ties to Boston, USA is being used and tooled up and will be used to generate enough anger (Aahah, begore, it's the boiler scandal, what a...

    It's slightly complex: the common decency/humanity of a Fine Gael government barely exists*, but their Anglophilia might overwhelm their base "let them eat cake" stance and the common decency/humanity of the Irish people is not that of a Fine Gael...

    1. Vote of No Confidence followed by putting a new "Government of National Unity" together with a new PM who will either ask for a further extension or cancel withdrawal 2. Pass legislation to cancel the UK's Article 50 notice...

    Platform and track replacements, sez they. Lurgan'd be a weird place to put customs controls, though?...

    Sadly the HSS service is an ex-parrot. OTOH, Ulysses sails in just over 2 km from the Point......
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    I've done the reverse in well inside that time, though I've no idea how Irish immigration compares to Dublin Airport security for delay. The 747 bus will get you from the airport to the Point Square or CCD in ~35...

    They're ranked priorities. I was expressing the hope that the most Anglophile, neoliberal party in Irish politics would care more about the Good Friday Agreement than preserving the current state of the Republic's economy. And (in a certain light) (1)...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I'd hope we have 2 and 3 swapped, but I have little evidence for my preferred order and given it's Fine Gael in government I'd sadly lay odds you're right. Either way, (1) demands border controls, (3) demands not accepting...

    So given that, if Ireland refuses to put up a border with NI Have you read a quote from an Irish government official that's said that? There have been lots of we abhor, and a border would be terrible, and...

    Eh. See, suppose you were a white supremacist. Then, maybe you'd want less immigration Go look up Nazi forced labour practices, including mass kidnapping of Polish and Soviet citizens. Or, y'know, remember US forced labour history. "White supremacist" describes both...

    This is the DUP you're talking about, who were never going to vote down Theresa May on a confidence matter for fear of causing a Sinn Fein-supporting PM yet still wangled a billion quid for a confidence and supply arrangement....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Let's remeber that Churchill offered De Valera & "Eire" NI on a plate - & they turned it down, because NOTHING ELSE MATTERED but defeating the Nazis ... And WC, having enocountered NI protestant-nutters at Curragh & arms-shipments in 1913-14...
