He'd have volunteered.

However there are no full time army jobs in Fermanagh.
Not necessarily, they are volunteers but ff you sign up for the TA its part of the contract that you can be called up if needed. Although there are many circumstances were you can have a legitimate excuse.

Bombardier, H&W and Wright bus. Unions can call all they want for the Protestant dole to come to the rescue though it’s highly unlikely a right wing Tory government will throw good money after bad in keeping non performing businesses solvent.

Brexit will provide immense opportunity in the new sunny uplands anyway...make it on your own lads.

That ignores the children and other family members who will suffer from the job losses. The social consequences of job losses in the industrial sector are wide-ranging and hit the working-class hardest, i.e. those who are least equipped to weather it.

There is a wider debate to be had on the future of manufacturing in the UK, which now looks like it's in serious trouble. But in the interim, a Northern Ireland where everyone is on the dole or employed by the public sector is no solution at all. And a united Ireland is no panacea either.

Your concerns should be directed at the ultra right wing Tory government and the billions they are squandering on Brexit instead of looking after the starving/sick/disabled and the most vulnerable in British society.

Spot in.

Not at all - the kids and the families need to be looked after as part of the welfare state. Unfortunately the DUP and the tories have been eradicating the welfare state for some years now.

I note the local mp for the area was on the airwaves today speaking about portraits of the queen. Perhaps he could hand out portraits of the queen to the laid off workers as they leave the ship yard for the last time.
