Whitehall’s ‘potty’ plan to keep NI lights on if no Brexit deal

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... rexit-deal

According to FT, the plan would involve bringing back equipment from military zones such as Afghanistan to build up capacity in the Irish Sea.

It now seems astounding to read the DUP manifesto from 2014.

It stated: "The DUP recognises that the Single Market is one of the European Union's most transformative assets. We want to maximise the economic opportunities that it presents for Northern Ireland.
"As a region of the UK, Northern Ireland is now part of a Europe that is better connected than ever before, by air, rail, sea and online. With better connectivity there is an inherent potential for economic growth, via the free movement of labour, goods, capital and services. [The DUP] wants to help businesses and individuals in our local communities to exploit this potential.
"We are committed to promoting Northern Ireland's highly-educated and high-skilled workforce at an EU level and showcasing our region of the UK as an hospitable business environment within the Single Market."

What a stupid article. The title had nothing to do with the content, which was just yet another rehash of the usual.

Of course there are differences. We let NI keep their medieval abortion laws. If they want "no differences", we should abolish that.

Just trying to help. I remember your asking me how NI Unionist politics works down the last 150 years. Now you know.
They don't teach that at Harvard Business School. Let alone the BBC or in school history books.

'usual' has many connotations..

A couple of issues here 1) loyalty to the Crown, 2) loyalty to the half crown.

Donaldson says Ireland should join the Commonwealth

https://www.thejournal.ie/dup-jeffrey-d ... 4-Mar2019/

He added that the Commonwealth is a place where “Ireland’s voice should be heard and I would like to see that happen”.

Priceless. He means NI.

There is a nice use case here (in the first stanza):
