OK - I've now seen the LinkedIn reference, and still don't think that much of it. It certainly has nothing to do with chickens.

Reasoning by analogy.

Nobody's forcing him to serve chicken.

How do you know that?
You are coccooned in London. It's different on the ground.

But Trump can force them. Just wait and see.

Same law applies in and outside London. You can't force a restaurant to serve chicken.

That remains to be seen.

At least in the case of Northumbria they already have a wall.

The similarities are actually uncanny. The biggest difference is arguably that his wall was to the north. His reign was only for 21 years, though. And Trump has so far not had the need to execute any senators, but stay tuned on that front.

Ms Hanna, outlining the SDLP's opposition to the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill, said: "For Northern Ireland in particular, Brexit has sharpened all of the lines that the Good Friday Agreement was designed to soften around identity, around borders, around sovereignty.
"We should have been spending the last few years talking about reconciliation, talking about regeneration, talking about social justice and equality.
"That's what all political action should really be about but instead we've spent morning, noon and night talking about Brexit - a problem that didn't need to exist and which, particularly in Northern Ireland, reopens old wounds and limits our horizons."
Ms Hanna said Brexit "fed off" people who felt lost and disenfranchised in the political system, adding: "I fear it will leave them feeling much worse."
She also said: "Beyond the economy, Brexit upends the delicate balance that in Northern Ireland has allowed us to imagine our shared and equal future together.
"We in Northern Ireland know the value of the EU and, as my political hero and predecessor in this House John Hume so often said, the EU is the greatest peace-building and conflict resolution project anywhere in the world and those of us particularly affected by conflict have a duty to reflect its principles.
"I'm afraid the concerns we have have been dismissed by those of you who won't ever have to live with the consequences of these actions."

Brexit has led to a surge in demand from Irish citizens living in England, Scotland and Wales. All citizens living in Northern Ireland are eligible for an Irish passport.
