Enda has been big on the Green Jersey...we must all band together...and do whatever it takes...in the name of getting jobs

He threw the UK under the bus in the immediate aftermath of Brexit , chasing lucre. He constantly makes little and big "compromises" on our behalf

He appointed the pink social thing , as Minister for jobs, she sees it as her job, to bring home the bacon of kudos for jobs...for her patron.

She is a haughty wagon , who rubs almost everyone up the wrong way ...including claiming to have "pulled strokes" to get jobs

This is contributing massively to the DUP's sense of unease with Dublin...at rather parlous a time
Foster accuses Govt of poaching NI investors

So what should our strategy towards the NI be ?
a) Hyper competitive ...with the wagon on full attack
b) Enlightened co operation to get more value for all

And to what extent should the strategy be influenced by security and cultural factors ?

cYp, after Mrs Iris Robinson, you can never again have pink social things at Stormont.

Ulster Says No.

Be it from the north or Britain, the south should just have a take, take attitude.
Interesting article in the Examiner during the week reporting lots of interest from companies eyeing up Dublin and elsewhere in Ireland from London.

The Irish Government needs to assert itself in an all Ireland way and take control as should have been done from 1919.

The good of the nation is at stake.

The Irish government offered cooperation to Arlene Foster in an all Ireland forum and she gave us the two fingers.

Someone must be snapping at Arelene's heals. She's all over the place these last few days. Obviously she's seriously fck ed up by not attending Enda's All Ireland think tank on Nov 2nd. Only information she'll get now is second hand.

Did she seriously think it wouldn't go ahead without her and her party?

The constant digs at the Rep will not make her any friends and the UUP could come out of this Brexit better than the DUP, simply by being practical and dealing with what needs to be dealt with.

Of course there's competition for investors. Silly woman.

So - you are in the "by all means necessary" Green Jersey brigade ... might all means include killing people ?

Seriously, I have no clue what you're on about now.

Poor UK....oppressed by Enda.

I'd like to apologize to all UKish people everywhere.

I agree but that doesn't mean beggaring the Northern Entity. Someone with a truly unity-oriented perspective will want to help out NI rather than take advantage of their problems.

England's difficulty might be Ireland's opportunity but NI's difficulty is our chance to show that the economic interests of all residents of the Island of Ireland lie within the Island of Ireland.

It is hard to know whether you are bad...playing dumb ...or...dumb playing dumb

These are the salient segments from my OP

Foster's accusations that Ireland is poaching investors "absolutely incorrect"

A FIANNA FÁIL TD has refuted comments made by Arlene Foster that the Irish government seeks to ‘poach’ investors from Northern Ireland.

Foster, the First Minister of Northern Ireland, was speaking today about opportunities post-Brexit when she suggested that the Irish government ‘talks down’ the North’s economy and takes its potential investors.

In her first speech as Democratic Unionist Party leader, Foster had some strong words for Enda Kenny’s government:

“Their representatives are sent out around the world to talk down our economy, and to attempt to poach our investors.”
Didnt Arlene vote for BREXIT?? Means out of EU, away from the Republic? Alls fair in love and war now surely? Arlene and the North via whole UK vote made their decision not considering nor caring about the consequences for north / south, WELL live with the consequences, her choice? We down south have to do the best for ourselves now ..

Nordie here.

If the Republic has any faith in Mary Mitchel O'Connor to put one over on us, then really the plot has been well and truly lost.

We wouldnt trust her to go the shaps. Not on our pound anyway.

Shes the kind of thing you pass in the street and wonder how did she afford that terribly bad blonde job? :)

Well ...see

Who would you fear more:

A dozen Canadian Special Forces
or
A dozen Russian Alpha Team ?

I'd fear the second a lot more ...as they use any available means ...and morality places no restrictions on them

Enda has reached out and wants an all Ireland approach to the issues posed by Brexit.

Called a remoaner by Arlene.

Says it all.

If Eire is rid of Albion why all the angst and whingeing about Brexit? None of our business.
