Poor analogy Rooster

We all know the Septics pre-disposition to friendly fire.

With not a lot of the Irish navy to actually shoot at, I wouldn't put it past them to shoot at each other and sink their own ships.

With Dipstick in the white house it could escalate and go nuclear.

The Irish as ever would claim neutrality while the world goes to hell in a handcart and the Irish navy emerges unscathed and rules the 7 seas .... or a couple of them at least - the couple they can actually put ships in to.
No plan survives the first contact with the enemy!

DUP cannot be allowed have a 'veto' on backstop deal, says Coveney

The Minister for Foreign Affairs has said the backstop agreement on the Irish border has been turned into a "green and orange" issue.

Simon Coveney also said getting a good deal for Ireland in the Brexit talks is being hampered by the actions of political parties.

Mr Coveney said that Ireland cannot allow one political party in Northern Ireland - the DUP - to veto proposals on the backstop agreement.

Speaking on RTÉ's Marian Finucane programme, Mr Coveney said: "We need to get a deal" and that while the DUP has a role to play in supporting the British government, Ireland [and the EU] does not have a 'confidence and supply' agreement with any political party in Northern Ireland.

He said Ireland is not seeking "in any way" to threaten or undermine the constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom, but accused Sinn Féin of "spreading fear" among unionists by calling previously for a border poll.

He said there is a danger that some parties had turned the efforts to get the backstop agreement into some sort of mechanism to change the border and this was making unionists fearful.

Mr Coveney said a backstop deal must be nailed down, but there are legal hurdles to be overcome first.

He said he believed an agreement can be found and he trusted that British Prime Minister Theresa May is not going back on the commitments she made last December on the so-called backstop agreement.

He said the Taoiseach will never sign a withdrawal treaty that does not ensure the commitments given to Ireland on the border are not followed through on.

Mr Coveney said there are aspects of Theresa May's 'Chequers plan' that can be worked on.

He said the UK had now committed to working on a revised text for the backstop and he called for an intensification of talks between the UK and the EU Brexit teams.

RHI inquiry was excellent listening today, it is even more preposterous than an entire series of Yes Minister, the Little Penguin thought it would be a good idea to film ding ding Bell when he was drunk.
