...unprepared, isolated and now hiding from the mess they created.
Heard this morning that Boris' Brexit plan is going to plung the economy in Northern Ireland 'into the gutter'.
I despise the twat.
The Tory government doesn't care about Northern Ireland as shown by how they have allowed it to go without a government for over 2 years and how they have been prepared to rip up the Good Friday Agreement to get a Brexit deal that satisfies their own party's rabid right wing.
Agreed @Angela Channing i want Ireland to unite. We will just have to face the consequences.
A 2016 episode from the Jimmy Dore show from before the US presidential election:
Why Brexit Is Good For Working People In Clear, Simple Terms
His ‘featured’ expert is Mark Blyth of Scotland, who is professor of international political economy at Brown University on Rhode Island and the author of Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea.
He's an American citizen living and working in the US and so won't be directly affected by Brexit. The overwhelming majority of UK academics think Brexit will be disastrous for the UK.
Brexit: Universities warn no deal is 'biggest-ever threat'.
Are we to infer that in your opinion his professional opinion doesn’t count?
Ah, then it should be easy enough to find online lots and lots of articles by, or news reports on or about, UK-based academicians who support the theory that Brexit would be disastrous for the entire kingdom. In particular, I’d love to learn the contrary arguments of UK-based academicians in the same field of education as Prof Blyth, especially on the same talking points he mentions.
The heads of purportedly 150 UK universities think Brexit will be disastrous for their universities because of the threat to their research projects and standing, per that article at the link you gave. I hadn’t realised there were quite that many universities in the UK.
No, I was just pointing out that it is easy to say Brexit is wonderful when the full impact of the impending disaster is not going to affect him directly because he has chosen to live in another country. If he believes Brexit is so wonderful why has he chosen to leave Britain and live somewhere where he will be protected from the Brexit chaos?
Yes there are. The most comprehensive and detailed being the analysis carried out by the UK government itself which warned of post Brexit rises food and fuel prices, shortages of medical supplies and food and public disorder on Britain’s streets.
Ministers forced to publish documents predicting public disorder, rising prices and disruptions to food and medicines
There are and overwhelmingly they are saying Brexit will be bad for Britain.
I find it sickening that this witch has left NI without a government for 2 years but is now over in Westminster, lording it over everyone else.
Anyone with 2 brain cells should be running like hell from her and her bigoted party and not relying on them for anything. They are a national embarrassment.
In that photo she looks like the love child of Brian May and Myra Hindley.
It wouldn't surprise me if she was related to Myra.
