    Or did they fudge that due to the pathetic ongoing impasse up north?
    Nope. Some of it was earmarked for specific projects such as the York Street Interchange.

    The UK is toast and w@nkers like Chris and his ilk will have played a much greater role in its demise than they will ever care to admit.

    His diction is excellent (for an Irishman). I very much enjoyed his contribution on Newsnight. I have however advised him to dial down his Nigel Dodds Angry Face if he wants to succeed in Mainland politics. He is certainly quite the Londonderry man, with an emphasis on the London, so to speak.

    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.

    No regulatory divergence is the slippery slope tbf. All Brits and West Brits need to be vigilant.

    The Democratic Unionist party has accused the EU of pulling an “astonishing confidence trick” on the UK government by claiming the Irish border problem is a road block to an overall Brexit deal.

    The remarks by Sammy Wilson, the DUP MP for East Antrim, come just hours after the party, which is propping up Theresa May’s government, threatened to sabotage the Brexit negotiations by voting down her budget later this month. In a further warning shot across the government’s bows, the DUP abstained in a vote on the agriculture bill on Wednesday night.

    Wilson said it was to “everyone’s amazement the government bought this con” perpetrated by the EU after it promised in writing that there would be no regulatory divergence between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
    I love them so much. Who's "Everyone" in that sentence? It's such a DUP position to take. Why is the stupid EU and the stupid UK trying to hard to sort out it's land border? Can't they just use the money tree the way NI parties do?

    There's no such convention. He's pulled that one out of the same place as he gets most of his information.

    In the early 1980s, Labour under Michael Foot were still talking about pulling the UK out of the EEC.

    The Referendum Party started up in the late 80s with the goal of overturning the 1975 referendum result via another referendum, and the anti-EU, have another referendum mantle was taken up by UKIP in the early 1990s.

    The fact that another referendum wasn't held until 2016 doesn't mean it's a convention. It simply reflects the fact that the numbers weren't there to vote a referendum through parliament until after the 2015 general election.

    The hard core Brexiteers, for all their talk of the will of the people, are scared shítless at the thought of a second referendum, and are determined not to allow the people to choose the 'Norway option', which, as the polls show, is what a majority of British people want.
