here's a good idea

If the two parties were to merge, they would be a genuine UK-wide third party with safe seats, a solid party membership, and real power. The DUP’s entrenched status in Northern Ireland is just what UKIP needs to bring stability in changing times. Add Farage into the mix and things start to look very attractive indeed.

In general two parties always better than one. It will be an illusion of peace and agreement. North Ireland is an old continuing unresolved problem and its solution somewhat remind me a solution between what we have (=British) and what we wish to have (=Ireland).

The DUP are teetotalers and very stern; not sure Nigel bon vivant would be in for that.

You can't *** with the dogs and *** with the foxes. It's not kindergarten. The whole debacle is converging to WTO. It's the economy, stupid.
It will all be fine. 

If you are member of a tennis club you are expected to pay dues etc.etc. and when you.leave the club you have to pick up the tab for all the G&Ts at the 19th hole.

But one of the members can bring you along as guest to the club for a percentage of full membership. It's called maintenance of the buildings, grounds etc. Otherwise the place will fall apart like in the early 70s before joining EEC. But no 19th hole, members only. Sorry.

One of us is confused between tennis and golf. I can't keep up, is the analogy hunting, tennis, golf,...?

The mouth of Merkel has spoken - with a Polish accent.
A few more independence referenda, and the Brexit deal is sorted:

Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has said that Brexit was the "stupidest thing any country has ever done" apart from the election of Donald Trump as US president.

(Notice the nice use of the superlative adjective).

And #3 accepting Ian Smith's UDI.

It's because of the ridiculous use of the superlative that we can ignore him. More of the "boy who cried wolf," and I do mean "boy."

Meanwhile U.K. growth greater than expected, yet again. France suffering from butter shortages thanks to socialist control. And, something we can't blame on EM, wine production in much of Europe falling and English wine continues to win many of the prizes. (Sorry, I don't know much about Irish or Dutch wines.)

Most jobs (accountants, estate agents, analysts) will be replaced by robots. Only the skilled jobs like plumbers, bar personnel and mental health specialists will remain.

I don't know anything about wine. Some say it's the middle-class way to get wasted.

I think it's tilt at this stage. No phase 2.
