World is crazier & more of it than we think, incorrigibly plural (not me; Louis MacNeice) Working at Sky News, but blame me not them for my tweeting mistakes.

This new guy nicknamed "The Crocodile" must be worth a go, right? It's probably just a pet name based on his love of swimming slowly or something.

Manning the Gibraltar stall at tomorrow’s DUP conference would usually be the very definition of an easy gig. But their Brexit positions could hardly be more different.

But really my only point is this: if you want to see a United ireland through agreement, which is a totally logical position, wouldn’t it be good to avoid tired divisive phrases like typical unionist bigot.

But the thing is, we all know that’s not true, in terms of either common sense or even in law (fair employment legislation etc). In fact, from memory Kevin’s own book makes this exact point, with its focus on demography.

I was pointing to the irony of people rightly slamming him for racism, but doing so in a way that attributes his racism to his ethnic identity. Some of the comments are as poisonous as his own remark. Yours is not, but I ask you to consider that it verges on the same territory.

Half a million pounds wasted, because a jury was dysfunctional & incapable. Imagine the human misery in this case, now prolonged.

I’d scour belfast’s 2nd hand bookshops for the works of Brinsley le poer tench, who said the earth is hollow & UFOs come out the poles.

It’s terrible. And read the replies; he’s called a “Scottish planter” & several “huns”. Ironic. Yr comment not much better I’m afraid Kevin

It was Cricket Australia not ECB I think. I can’t remember an Ashes with less public build up. Surely you agree Sky would be better.

This thread & discussion on the Irish border worth a read. A key point; is Dublin serious about agreement? If so need to dial down rhetoric.

But doesn’t that mean the “tube” sites, the most popular porn sites, will be totally unaffected ? Asking for a friend

I had to do a Google Image search for that. Try it - it's great

Yes. A very different subject, but I'm also troubled & intrigued by the word "extreme" which routinely describes the porn found on Damian Green's computer. Was it illegal or not?

A brief, powerful and important read...though far from an uplifting one. Sometimes it's important to face the darkness. Respect to for stating difficult truths.

A quite unusual Daily Mail story, in which they report on the judicial & parole system working perfectly well.

Yes, in order to make housing more affordable, the Chancellor has had to make it more expensive.

Interesting challenge for the SNP to follow suit. If they don;t, will Berwick end up full of young Scottish couples moving in ?
