Deal or No Deal?

So it appears the U.K. and the EU may have reached some sort of deal for Northern Ireland.

Now I won’t pretend to understand all the complexities of the situation in Northern Ireland, when the Good Friday Agreement was reached it was a good thing for Northern Ireland and it’s people. So I can understand the fear of many that leaving the EU and having a hard border back in place puts at risk that agreement and brings back the potential for the return of terrorism. However this afternoon it is being reported that Britain has agreed a deal with the EU on the issue of the Northern Ireland border that would effectively keep the province in the single market and customs union, EU chiefs have told members of the European Parliament.

In my ignorance, and for whats its worth, I just don’t think you can have a separate deal for Northern Ireland and pretend that the union within the United Kingdom has’nt then been altered, and is therefore no longer a union if one part is different from the rest. No doubt there will be many who will argue that nothing changes, and again in my ignorance, I just won’t accept that. If Northern Ireland stays within the framework of the EU then for me the union is over and Scotland should walk away. The Tories and their friends in the other unionist parties laughed and scoffed when the Scottish Government put forward proposals for Scotland to remain in the single marker, before they had even read the proposals they had rejected them, well the chickens are coming home to roost today, if it’s not good enough for Scotland then I’m sorry it’s not good enough for Northern Ireland.

Deal or No Deal? I’m afraid I suspect it will be no deal as not only will Scotland rightly demand the same concessions as Northern Ireland I suspect there will be those in London who demand them as those in Wales will also. Now what if a deal is reached for Northern Ireland, and what if a deal is reached for London? What do Scots do then, do we accept more of this shit from the unionists and just say yeah ok, do we surrender again more of our self-respect and dignity. You will certainly have the nut jobs in Scotland in Union coming up with their usual crap but again when is enough enough for us in Scotland. Now as I said I don’t think a deal will be done as the DUP won’t accept any and have told journalists at Stormont: ‘We have been very clear that Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the UK, and we will not accept any form of regulatory divergence that separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the UK.’

I don’t want to see the troubles return to Ireland, no one in their right mind does, but Northern Ireland has to look after itself and my concern is Scotland. What today says to me is that the Tories are a shambles, the EU equally are playing their own games, but there can be no different deal for Northern Ireland, there can be no deal that allows EU citizens to live under EU law while the rest of us live under UK law. Basically we have got to get out of the UK as soon as we can and then we can decide what we want to do. Lets grow a pair and stop listening to the threats from the yoons about the so called UK single market, the EU about brexit and lets chart our own path and take back all the powers and decide for ourselves what that all means. I have had enough of the UK and todays double-dealing just emphasises that even more.

      Certainly the worst in my 48 years and getting worse by the day. The politicians now in the main are such a poor qulaity and that has come about since it became a creer and not a vocation.

    This is yet another example that the Union was never a union between nations, it has always been Greater England and always will be.

    It is in Greater England’s interest to accommodate a deal for Northern Ireland (a face saving colony from 1922). Scotland? Well they have their lickspittles to look after it for them.

    I honestly struggle to understand the motivation of many yoons. What will it take to wake them up?

      What England wants England gets and it amazes me that people continue to put up with. I despise the UK and I despise anyone who supports it, it is a disusting construct that even though 1707 is a long time ago the people who agreed to the treaty of union should have been hung. if Scotland were independent now how many would vote to join the UK, not many. Its time people woke the f up and saved themselves.

    This goes from bad to surreal , the UK and the EU agree to a deal and forget to tell the DUP , who then tell them to fek aff ….. But fear not I have a cunning plan ………says a Tory insider !!
    I have the solution to all of this , let little England have a vote on their own independence , solves all our problems , because they won’t be terrified not to vote for their own self determination .

    • Ricky
      It is a shocker that not even a writer could make it up, what a shambles. The most incompetent government in the hstory of the world. All for England having a vote on their own independence, and if they vote no then we have a parliament made up of equal numbers of representatives from the 4 countries until we grow a pair and get out before we really are back in the victorian age.
