So peeps, the long awaited and much lamented deal has been done, moi is sure no matter what political creed or hue or posters adhere to everywan will be unanimous in welcoming investment of up to 1.5 billion British pounds into NI...

We welcome this new financial support of £1 billion pounds in the next two years as well as providing new flexibilities on almost £500 million pounds previous committed to Northern Ireland. As a consequence, spending power of almost £1.5 billion will be available to address the unique circumstances of Northern Ireland and the effect these have had on its economy and its people.

News - Statement by Leader of the Democratic Unionist Party Rt Hon Mrs Arlene Foster MLA | Democratic Unionist Party


The UK Government, however, recognises the unique circumstances of Northern Ireland’s history and the effect this has had on its economy and people from all parts of the community, while recognising too the need to be fair to all parts of the United Kingdom. Both parties re-affirm their commitment to the restoration of devolved government in Northern Ireland. Following discussions between them, and in order to support their shared objectives of strengthening the economy, the UK Government is prepared to make available additional financial support to the power­ sharing Executive.

"Here, natives, here are some shinny beads. Now let us get on with making cuts, joining the war in Syria and crashing out of the EU without a deal, if necessary. Who cares if this divides and damages the nation we claim to love."

You guys. :rolleyes:

Why I welcome the Conservative and DUP deal

“There is much in this agreement that business will welcome", Trevor Lockhart, CBI Northern Ireland Vice-Chair commented.

“In particular, the delivery of the York Street Interchange has long been a key infrastructure priority for local firms from across Northern Ireland, not just those based in Belfast. The continued support for the devolution of corporation tax, plus commitment to examine options for implementation in the Autumn Budget, will be similarity welcomed.”



NI Chamber also welcomed the commitment to devolve Corporation Tax powers to Northern Ireland.

“This, alongside the establishment of City Deals, will prove attractive to investors,” Ann McGregor, Chief Executive of NI Chamber, said.

“Road schemes such as the York Street Interchange will do much to ease congestion on heavily trafficked roads in the region, helping businesses to move products and goods more efficiently and in the process reduce costs”, she added.

Let us all know when that happens, ratio. We'll cross that bridge if and when we come to it. In the meantime...

So they put the same terms in each referendum with no changes whatsoever?

Yes with getting the controlled media to add further fear tactics to get people to vote the way they wanted.

At the time Shinners were opposed to this carry on- but I'm sure they have come around to thinking it was fine now.

You're in the wrong thread. Again. Your mates mustn't be on political Irish yet.

We have enough to bore us with a Bridgey thread without you coming in with this shíte.
