  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Seem to me though that there will be no political stability in the UK unless Brexit is tried. It will only get stronger if it denied by the political class and that may get violent....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The Unionist are not ready to agree to a United Ireland, it would need a prolonged economic downturn that was not affecting Ireland or some serious political betrayal from Westminster. Otherwise they would resist violently and the Irish government or...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Long term no, the UK is too big a player in European term to ignore in the long run. It simply cannot be trusted or taken at is word though as long as UK and the Brexit wing of the...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The banks probably cannot wait for the politicians to get their act together. Anyone know how long to get regulation compliant and Euro-passport ready in France or Germany?...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    That is actually not a bad idea. The austerity bit can and will be changed when enough voters get sick of it and a viable alternative that they believe presented to them. Or in Europe's case enough countries reject austerity...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    LOL It does looks a bit like that doesn't it. I still cannot get over the notion held by some that the UK gov. can ignore the vote and say ha ha lad it was all a joke, we're sober...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    I think you are right the EU cannot afford the UK, much less the England tail to wag the EU dog. So Scotland vetos the leaving of Europe, Westminster does what? or will the SNP push UDI anyway? I think...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    For those that think that the UK Government can delay exit as long as they want I have a question: Is this politically viable? Presumably most of the Tory pro Brexit backbenchers believe in it and why will they stand...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Farage has already withdrawn the promise of 350 mil a week for the NHS. That was quick....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    So Britain shuts down immigration and the economy remains poor, with poor prospects then What? How long before people wake up to the real source of the problem?...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Oh! I know it is a long way from ordinary Goths which is why I read the article....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Yeah, I was somewhat aware of the nature of Scandinavian racism, a couple of years ago, for reasons I cannot remember I stared googling something on Goth subculture and found myself reading some fascinating stull on feuds between Norwegian Death...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I do not follow. First off I fail to see any advantage of being in Schengen and out of the EU. I understand why Norway and Switzerland are there, I just do not see any advantage in the position, Secondly...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Not any more as far as I remember, he left once it was no longer tax efficient for him to stay. I think he is now living in a proper tax haven, not sure which one....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Thanks, Stevie, its been illuminating...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    This goes to the heart of what I suppose I have been trying to tease out. It has been my impression that the GOP in the US are not fundamentally interested in addressing the illegal immigration issue because they want...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    So are we talking the 400k or so mentioned here or the several millions of Irish decent since the mid nineteenth century? The former we could cope with the latter would destabilise more than Ireland. I suppose you are also...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    That last line should have been: Irish born, living in the UK......
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Apology accepted, not a bother anyway. I just though you had me confused with a pro brexiter, couldn't have that now. I agree that Ireland is in a tricky position and I am well aware of the history of UK...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Ok, as far as I know, EU law is agreed to by the Council (essentially the governments of Europe) and can be amended by the EU parliament (in limited circumstances the Parliament has I believe a veto). Anything passed at...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Gerry Adams is now a mainstream politician in the Irish republic. TD for Louth, Leader of the 3rd largest party in the Dail...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I do care in the sense your are saying but it is an event entirely outside my control and I think Stevie was mistaking me for a brexiter. The people that I know that have a vote are all pro...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Good answer, better than mine but you will never get less bureaucracy from the EU it is the lowest common denominator of 28 National bureaucracies and legal systems, arrived at by committee. It is never going to be less than...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    The problem is the Euro, take away the Euro and the EU in its current form could exist pretty much for ever, a bit like the Holy Roman Empire. If you want to keep the Euro they you really need...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    First off Stevie, I am Irish and not pro Brexit, so I do not give a shit where the lost capital inflows to the UK come from should they choose to leave. Second, Doing nothing is the default action of...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    No I am not, It any country rocks the boat and it all goes to shit the fingers point at them and everyone yells its their fault and does what ever they wanted to do under the cover of that...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I really do not see what is in it for the EU to launch a trade war with the UK. You would have to get all the EU governments to agree on it and why would most of them go...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    What exactly is wrong with Corbyn? I get that the press does not like him but never seen a good reason for it....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    You impression is correct but I think the issue arises because, the operations of the Council are opaque and Governments tend to blame their EU colleagues for forcing them to do something that they would/should have done themselves, papers making...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Don't think so Greg, any useful reform of the EU requires someone to speak for Europe, member Governments don't do it. They speak for themselves and the Commission does not have enough clout. I am talking about an European government...
