    Coronavirus

    18. The Junior Cert, which 16 year olds sit, has been cancelled

    Coronavirus

    I didn't read the article, but the plan here is for teachers & Leaving Cert students to go back in, & run a delayed Leaving Cert in July/August. Schools won't be "normally open" until new academic year. The Leaving Cert plan is subject to decreasing virus numbers, & there are some calls to scrap it altogether

    EU Referendum

    If that is the case, they'd both be playing right into the Shinners hands.

    EU Referendum

    I think it'll be SF-FF-SD, with John McGuinness or Éamonn Ó Cuív as FF leader
  6. From memory, it was probably the 2nd biggest plan k in No campaign after the economic argument. I clearly remembering Cameron use the phrase "the only way to guarantee EU membership is to remain in the UK" I'll try drag some video footage out

    Election 2019

    I think they know they've extracted as much from Brexit that they're likely to get. Also, was very telling how involved the likes of Eoin Ó Broin were involved in the campaign. Their ambitions south of the border means their power base is shifting southwards, & they don't want to be seen as a party of protest

    Election 2019

    Not what I'm hearing. The message received on the doorsteps of get back to work was loud & clear, & expect movement soon to getting things up & running
  9. We're good enough now to play our own game & not worry too much about nullifying them. Fab-Gini-Ox in the middle, & go at their weakened central defence

    Election 2019

    Here's hoping alright. I've read on Slugger O'Toole that Alliance are also in with a shout in South Antrim. Whilst I think there's a certain amount of wishful thinking from a former SF MLA here, I think the fact that its even being considered a possibility shows this could be a difficult election for DUP https://sluggerotoole.com/2019/11/01/election-battlegrounds-ge19-south-antrim/

    Election 2019

    https://www.rte.ie/news/ulster/2019/1104/1088516-election-northern-ireland/ SF not standing in 3 constituencies in favour of SDLP (South Belfast), Alliance (East Belfast) & Independent Unionist (North Down)

    EU Referendum

    We were never an empire, so its a lot more difficult to construct an argument for us to leave the EU to return to past imperial glories. Plus, whilst most people here would be sceptical about the direction the EU is going, membership is seen in an overwhelmingly positive light. Membership has brought us improved transport infrastructure, & allowed us to position ourselves as the gateway to Europe for big American companies. (Excluding Malta) we're about to go from the only English speaking country in the Euro to the only English speaking country in EU.
  14. That article was quite rightly ridiculed by SF. There are marginal constituencies where there's no guarantee a "Unity Remain" candidate would be returned, & to expect SF to resign all their seats is pie in the sky thinking. It also needs to be viewed in the context of O'Tooles absolute naked hatred towards them.
