Stubborness in Ulster ..surely not

================

Mind you in our area people seem to be poring over maps to decide, which parts of London will be burnt down first
when they cheat us out of Brexit
Everyone is on about the media's campaign to RamRemain down our throats.

"3. Ironic that what seems to have brought it down (though it might have been an excuse) was the "green" scandal.

Personal greed combined with religious self righteousness is more important to politicians than the wellbeing of those forced to pay their wages.

Did any NI Politicians foresee any problems with the Green energy scam?

Paranoid Totalitarian May II

May Govt Says ‘Pro-Brexit’ MPs Must Back ‘Soft’ Brexit or Face Second Referendum

But

However, Mr Stride also threatened those who are against Brexit altogether, saying they must back Mrs May’s plan or there could be a clean, full exit from the EU.

Err, what?

More surrender to EU

The Troubles were about catholic civil rights in NI, with a side order of ROI cultural links. They were discriminated against culturally and financially by a Protestant majority government....

That is a blatant misrepresentation of facts.

EM
I predict that the Republic will soon be joining us out of the EU (if we get a proper Brexit), They had to have several bites at the cherry before they finally agree to join and that was mostly because we were in. Now they seem likely to be net contributors and their business tax system is under threat by the EU move towards tax harmonisation. Once out with us we can have as close a relationship as both sides wish. Win, Win.
