    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...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    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...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    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...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    There'd be immediate violent rebellion with Ulster Volunteers magnitude popular support. NHS workers at the prospect of being 'managed' by the HSE, I mean....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Note that this plan has the classic Boris hallmarks: it's big, it's bold, ...it's illegal. Unilaterally evicting Northern Ireland is against the GFA; though, as it is a Boris plan, that's unlikely to prevent him trying....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    My other mildly uneducated guess is that typical progressive and minority voters will hold their noses and vote for anyone Maybe (I suspect not, but anyway); are the votes of misogynistic Democrats who might vote for Trump instead of...
  • Commented on Story time!
    If the described capabilities of this malware scare any government we've got much bigger problems than even I thought. I'd tentatively believe they've correctly id'ed the author because "scanning for telnet ports and attempting to login with default credentials, then...

    Guineas, of course, are still used to this day. (The price paid in many livestock auctions is in guineas. Nowadays a guinea is £1.05; as soon as the animal is knocked down the buyer knows they're paying X guineas, the...

    I need to ask: what was up with Tony Stark, the genocidal maniac who everyone thinks is a good guy because after making billions being the bad guy he repents? I refer the honourable correspondent to Andrew Carnegie of Carnegie...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    There simply is NO majority in the House for a "no deal" Christ's sake, Greg. You keep saying this. Try listening to the people telling you it's irrelevant sometime....

  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    [Assange] is charged with conspiracy to commit computer fraud and abuse, aka hacking. It's not something that can be protected the First Amendment's Free Press clause. If Assange were a bona fide reporter for the BBC or the New York...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Comparing Daniel Ellsberg to Assange seems wrong; Assange published the documents. Manning was the one who exfiltrated them. And Manning has served time for doing so - and, indeed, is back in jail at least partly on a principled objection...

    it may be that the EU has realized that there would be advantages to having the UK in the EEA or just as a rulestaker in the single market Yes. Preserving something approaching the status quo in Northern Ireland. Which...

    The only objection that I would have to using this as a description of the unification of the British Isles into a single state is that the First World War is too late. I would pick 1802, the date of...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    I think the only time there was serious tension was when those who joined up to fight in WW2 returned home to find the government doing its best to prevent them from getting jobs I thought the offical repression was...

    the Irish refused the treaty of Nice and the Treaty of Lisbon [...] Referendum are now to be avoided or if you can't avoid to be ignored (see the treaty of Lisbon as a classic example of this). Oh, fuck...

    Mobile phones can be easily switched to work peer to peer. While true, and while the whole tangent is fascinating, it spun off from a mistake. The weapon in Rwanda was not radio, it was the radio - commercial radio...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    So to extrapolate that: a hard Brexit might well be followed by something similar to the WA; the UK needs to survive (literally) and the EU could use the money and much prefers not to seize it from UK's assets...

    "Displaced incumbency", well, the Glorious Revolution is the least violent version Going and having your war of succession in a colonial territory does not make a transfer of power bloodless, alas....
