It was obvious to anyone who managed to consider the matter for more than a nanosecond that no conceivable version of Brexit lunacy would be good for Unionism or the Union. But no, with their customary crassness & ineptitude, the DUP sleepwalked into another Nationalist trap.

Why haven't medical orderlies in white coats emerged from the sidelines to lead the demented toddler in chief away to some Secure Unit?

Matters of State should not be decided by plebiscitary madness. Even the 'benign' view of Referenda as a means to opine on legislation already proposed/enacted,(let alone 'everything we like/don't like' silliness of Brexit)is fraught with dangers which outweigh alleged benefits.

I must have missed the 'consultation' on the Backstop's 'no time limit' fiscal and regulatory regime, imposed and managed (on behalf of the EU) by Dublin. Where is this permitted in the Belfast Agreement again?

The Border was created by the secession of the 26C entity in Dec.1922. The first border controls were introduced by the Free State in 1923. Yet somehow it is all the fault of the British.

Since when did a Remain vote mean acquiescence in Dublin's imposed Backstop which violates the principle of consent enshrined in the Belfast Agreement? Or perhaps you 'believe' that it does not?

Corbyn did not 'help' opponents come together(sic) in N.Ireland; he supported only the sectarian assassins & bombers of the IRA who were responsible for 70% of all human rights abuses since 1969. Do you understand any of this, or is this just not an issue for ill informed idiots?

Perhaps because SFIRA have been opposed to the EU since 1972, yet here they are again hijacking(opps....) yet another cause they do not really support.

If only all these tramps were indeed permanently on the other side of some or other border...

A Cambridge economist explains how the huge pressure put on the DUP, with exaggerated claims on the 'disaster' of a no deal Brexit, helps explain why they have felt the need to make such massive concessions

¿Violencia en ? Violento es un aparato judicial obsoleto, que penaliza ideologías e inadmite querellas con los fundamentos más peregrinos. Violento es un Régimen caduco, donde el acosador vive impune, y las cuentas electorales no salen ni para gobernar sin

Duplicitous nonsense from Kinnock and a shocking indictment of the Brexit cabal who have turned Labour's historic internationalism on its head.

As opposed to imposing on all strands of Unionism a Brexit deal which violates the Belfast Agreement requirement that any 'new arrangements' be subject to cross community support. Loyalist paramilitary views are as valid as those of the sectarian assassins & bombers of SFIRA.

The secession of the 26C entity in Dec.1922 to form a theocratic Statlet which incorporated swathes of mindless Catholic dogma into its Constitution and Laws is the cause of partition. N.Ireland was established in May 1921, quite legally & democratically. This is the reality.

Brexit has destabilised the (deliberate) suppression of questions of (imagined) identity in N.Ireland,which had allowed most reasonable people to identify(sic) as whatever they wanted...who cares apart from them? This was an inevitable outcome of Brexit lunacy .

It's his phonology, those broadened phonemes and morphemes as he struggles to sound how he believes, at least in his otherwise empty head, 'posh' people must sound like.

It is becoming more clear that Varakdar is using the Brexit Negotiations to advance his objective of a United Republic of Ireland and, regrettably, because The Republic is remaining in the EU other EU nations are supporting him.Time for the Unionist Majority to prevail!

Again, Nationalists witlessly conflate the possibility that Loyalists obtained intelligence info from individual members of the security forces (thereby helping target Republican activists) with their preferred fact free narrative of shadowy services directing Loyalist groups.
