apparently Majority want to be in the uk?
It should be noted, that poll was taken last autumn. The more recent Lucid Talk poll shows a much smaller majority for "Remain".

I don't think the recent leylist/Tory shenanigans will have encouraged moderate catholics.

Re: Munster 2020/21

The SA defence coach has said he used to do the same when he was at Munster because the wood tended to be damp. He’d previously worked for three years as a physio in a burns unit. An English doctor is being shown around a Scottish hospital. At the end of his visit, he's shown into a ward with a num...

Just as long as it had a happy ending, old boy.

"Accident" is very generous. Gross stupidity would be more accurate.

Hope nobody has suffered any permanent damage.

Re: Cricket season

Jimmy's "offence" : tweeting a decade ago that Broad's haircut made him look like a 15 year old lesbian.

Morgan and Buttler: mimicing their overly deferential treatment by Indians while playing in the IPL.

I'm as "woke" ad the next man, but come on

Re: US special envoy

Just found out he's a Tory boy. I thought he was aligned with the liberal wing of the UUP.

Selected by Brandon Lewis , a man with zero emapthy for NI or it's people, unlike his predecessor who did actually seem to have our interests at heart.

Re: US special envoy

Difficult to stand over 60% in the current climate without a proper debate and referendum. You could also argue that some may wish to remain in the UK but still consider themselves to be Irish. It's very complicated. All that aside, I'm not sure how much traction Mr Ringland will have in the US. The...

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

Only lived here for six months. Realised I hadn’t received a bill for rates and phoned up. Apparently, they aren’t ready yet. So the council doesn’t need two months income then??? They certainly do. Those bonfires and riots don't clean themselves up afterwards! You have your friendly Finance minist...

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

I'm not sure his "brief" will correspond to your view of it Bobbie. He's a Tory pawn and more fool him. Still, I will concede that you're at least partially right. He does indeed comprehensively beat me on the "chasing a knighthood" criterium.

Another cunning plan dreamt up in tory HQ. Utterly pointless.
Boris hates devolution and this is probably a clumsy attempt at undermining it.
