    Bigots on the ropes in Ireland?

    One simple reason we might see a United Ireland before independence | The National

    "It’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that the Northern Irish public could demand a poll on reunification with the South – not likely still, but no longer unthinkable. If that happens, the radicalising effect on Scots would be enormous, making indyref2 irresistible and leaving Great Britain a shadow of its former imperial self. "

    Who'd have thought it the pope and arlene foster bringing about unification?

    Apparently we need to watch the next week for a stream of revelations about the brexiters' plans...


    ...or was it this week? Brexiter promises are so vague...

    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Don't know about brexiteers crystal ball gazing but apparently, Boris Johnston has given up navel-gazing apparently he is finding it hard to see.

    What kind of democracy do we have when a clown like johnston seemingly thinks becoming leaser of the tory party means he becomes prime minister. The vast majority of people in this country do not vote tory.

    On a happier note

    Mundell admits 'chaotic Brexit' will fuel Yes campaign | The National

    "Mundell admits 'chaotic Brexit' will fuel Yes campaign"

    Also
    "Later, talking to journalists, Mundell said Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson had the “excellent qualities” needed to replace Theresa May in Number 10.

    There has been speculation that the Scottish Tory chief will head to London after the next Holyrood election in 2021. "

    She might well have lost her seat by then - oh no wait a minute we have proportional representation so maybe not.

    Hmm. If anyone can save the Tories Davidson is probably the person. Scotland gone in 5 years and NI in 10 is my Brexit prediction - with the caveat that if the EU collapses as a result of us leaving + whatever other crisis crops up then that prediction no longer applies. I don't think the EU will collapse but our leaving does make it more vulnerable in the short term.

    More than a think. If you read just the mainstream press you would think it was a done deal all you get is the same bull**** over and over again. The referendum was advisory never binding in any way except in the fantasy created by the brexiteers.

    Re: Bigots on the ropes in Ireland?

    There have been calls for a 2nd ref since the first and rather than dying away they have been slowly gaining volume. There have been a few petitions that have gathered about 600k signatures I think, the Lib Dems have been calling for one consistently but are too small to be very influential.


    It's probably too little too late. But we keep plugging away. The real nasties here are the European Research Group who are the far right out at any price Tories. The precise number isn't clear but it's probably about 60. That's in Parliament. Outside Parliament there's this American, Steve Bannon, who is advising the far right all across Europe. He was Trump's big man during his campaign for President, now he's advising Johnson and Rees-Mogg as well as the Austrian President.

    He is the guy co-ordinating the far right in Europe on behalf of trump. And if he is acting on behalf of Trump he is acting on behalf of Putin.

    Total filth.
