    Ah well, time limit on the backstop is what she wants.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,935 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    It doesn't mention temporary in the document last December did it ?

    And the Irish Sea.

    No NI-only backstop to the backstop. Essentially they want the UK trade agreement wrapped up as part of the withdrawal agreement, which must also allow them to enter their own trade deals. Doubling down on the rhetoric, can’t see the way out here.

    thats why I said "oh no"

    She's sticking to the keep the union stance. Can't see any deal now. Temporary backstop shafts us at some point.

    A point that seems to have been forgotten in Britain is that the DUP campaigned against the good Friday agreement.
    Hardly surprising that they don't consider it binding in any way.

    The speaker of the House of Commons sounds like a school principle at times.

    watch a few PMQs and you'll see why

    That was an interesting question. I wonder how Theresa May will answer it ?

    For those not watching it live.... What was the question?

    I do watch them when I can. They are different to the dail debates which at times sound painfully scripted.

    Jeremy Corbyn is right about one thing anyway- this is a complete shambles.

    I’d consider moving back to the UK for career reasons right now if not for Brexit- it’s now deeply unappealing. Ireland looks better in almost every way.

    Corbyn asked what has happened to the December agreement in regards to the Backstop

    It was in relation to the document agreed with the backstop in December. He was asking does the commitment agreed in December still stand.

    I love when he calls out Jeremy Corbyn! Some voice


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,935 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Did Ian Duncan smith call Jeremy Corbyn a groundhog ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,924 ✭✭✭trellheim


    OK this looks like UK turtling to apply pressure on the EU


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,935 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Something about delayed in transit from this SNP mp. I've no idea what he's saying.

    The ERG killed it with their amendment to the customs bill in July, ie the UK signed up to something that was 6 months later voted on to be illegal


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,622 ✭✭✭✭Leroy42


    Some very good points by the SNP fella. Of course he was mostly talked over and ridiculed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,015 ✭✭✭✭Mc Love


    BoJo just having his say now

    Unwatchable. I've seen more dignified and rational food fights among the ducks in Stephens Green.
