Brexit


#241

You are vastly overstating May’s political nous there mate.


#242

Of course there is always the possibility she, and everybody else on the UK negotiating side, merely innocently forgot the DUP existed and it just never crossed their mind to tell them about any of this.


#243

#244

Leo and Simon will make a statement at 5.15


#245

That never happened, nobody understands Northern Ireland.


#246

It’ll be class in a few years when it’s Simon and Simon making these statements.


#247

And founding presence of a few dozen GAA clubs


#248

They’d cut their nose off to spite their face that mob. NI could have benefited enormously from having a foot in both camps, but the DUP are too bigoted to see the merits of this.


#249

Exactly. In the UK and in the EU would mean a huge boost for their economy. Unheralded advantage. They really are fucktards to claw defeat from jaws of victory over some principle. Sure NI money is not even legal tender in GB. They are already treated differently.

DUP and their supporters are really thick as pig shit.


#250

The DUP are utter parasites .


#251

In one part of the UK, the largest party is desperate for an advantageous special deal and is being refused it, another part of the UK has been offered an advantageous special deal and the largest party is refusing it.


#252

Stephen Donnelly on Ivan Yates now.

They were briefed that there would be no border under any arrangements. The status quo would remain. EU rules would apply.

Northern Ireland would essentially become a special economic zone.

The previous guest said that the DUP had been briefed on the wording. And they only kicked off when the story was being spun that it was a good deal for Ireland.


#253

Headshot


#254

NI could have been the central trading hub for U.K.-Europe trade. It was an unraleable deal for them


#255

Leo is in the mood now :facepunch:


#256

It could have been the greatest deal in the 4000 years since the earth was created.


#257

that poof varadkar trying to act the hardman is hilarious :rofl:


#258

He’s clearly inVESTed a lot of effort today.


#259

Coveney has slipped in and thrown a few digs now. They’re passing this one around like the Kerry Golden Years side, its beautiful to watch.
