The signing of the 1921″ Treaty of Surrender” Fuck your British ‘Brexit’ shove it up your English ass

It’s interesting that the ‘Brexit’ talks should collapse this week on the issue of the British-imposed border on the week of the 96th anniversary of signing the 1921 “Treaty of Surrender”. The terms of this treaty subverted All-Ireland democracy and imposed the two partition states on the Irish people under the threat of “Immediate and terrible war. “ Brexit#

No ‘misunderstanding’ of Brexit text – DUP

DUP accuses Dublin of trying to change the Good Friday agreement unilaterally

The Democratic Unionist Party “had no misunderstanding” about the text of a UK-EU agreement on the Irish border, one of its MPs has said.

The Conservative Party was aware of the DUP’s opinion, said Jim Shannon – one of 10 DUPs on whose support the UK government relies on to stay in power.

On Monday, Brexit talks between the UK and the EU broke up because of DUP objections to border proposals.

The DUP does not want NI border laws to be any different from Great Britain’s.

Unionists tend to view with scepticism any proposal for harmonisation of rules on either side of the Irish border,

They are concerned such an approach may be the thin end of a wedge towards Irish unity.

Reality check: How much UK-Irish trade is there?
DUP leader Arlene Foster spoke to Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday shortly after telling supporters she would not allow a Brexit deal that creates “regulatory divergence” between Northern Ireland and Britain, Reuters news agency reported.

A party source declined to reveal the content of the telephone call, but said the DUP was in continuing contact with Mrs May, added the agency.

Text ‘was agreed’

Disagreement over the post-Brexit operation of the Irish border is currently holding up trade talks, with the Irish government saying negotiations cannot move on until it has a firm, written assurance from the UK that there will be no physical border on the island of Ireland.

The DUP says it never assented to any of the wording which leaked out of the Brexit discussions, whether it be “no regulatory divergence” across the island of Ireland after Brexit or “continued regulatory alignment” .

Those words were meant to provide reassurance to the Irish government that, should the EU and the UK not be able to reach a trade deal, there would be a backstop that would guarantee trade across the border would continue pretty much as it does now.

It would mean Northern Ireland businesses adhering to the same standards and rules as their southern counterparts.

However, unionists tend to view with scepticism any proposal for harmonisation of rules on either side of the border.

They are concerned such an approach may be the thin end of a wedge towards Irish unity.


Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar said the British government had agreed the text of a deal which was satisfactory to his government on Monday morning.

However, he said it was evident that “things broke down and became problematic” by lunchtime.

Irish PM Leo Varadkar “surprised and disappointed”
The BBC understands the deal broke down after the DUP refused to accept UK concessions on the Irish border.

“We’re part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,” Mr Shannon told the BBC.

“So when it comes to regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland, politically and economically from the rest of the United Kingdom, we cannot have that.”

“The referendum was very clear when it was held back in June 2016,” he said, referring to the UK’s vote to leave the EU.

“We’re all leaving together. We’re in it together, we’re leaving it together and I think the quicker we come to some sort of understanding with the Republic of Ireland, the better.”

Asked if there had been a miscalculation or a misunderstanding between the DUP and Mrs May’s government, Mr Shannon said the DUP’s stance had been very clear.


Citizen’s rights, the Irish border and money are the three big negotiation points
“There was no misunderstanding from our point of view,” he said.

“There were enough of those in the Conservative Party [who] knew our opinion.

“They understood where we were in relation to this issue and they withdrew the suggestion for an agreement which was put forward.”

The DUP has a confidence-and-supply arrangement with the minority Conservative government, which means Mrs May relies on them to support her government in House of Commons votes.

The Ulster Unionist Party’s chairman, Lord Empey, described the handling of the situation by the Tories and the DUP on Monday as a “shambles”.

He said there could only be two scenarios.

“Either the DUP (leaders) were not consulted in advance by the Government, in which case they are not as influential as they say,” said Lord Empey.

“Or, they were consulted but didn’t appreciate the full implications of the leaked document and were asleep at the wheel.”

The SDLP accused the DUP of being “terrible unionists” because they were “vetoing something that the London government wants” in the Brexit talks.

SDLP MLA Claire Hanna said that in their rows with the Tories over the Irish border, DUP negotiators were “cutting of their nose to spite their faces”.

“If the DUP have a better idea, let’s hear it,” she said.

Stick your English Brexit up your English arse

I have nothing against the English, whether white, black, indian or asian, who live in England or anywhere else, and I have no problem with the great racial divides between the Anglos and the Saxons, to be sure, but I remain opposed to English sovereignty on any piece of Ireland, or, for that matter, on any other Celtic rock. That’s all. We love the English, we live with them, we fuck them, we have families with them, they break our hearts and we break theirs…we have affairs with them, we buy dinner for them (and far more often lately than was) and that’s great…that’s normal, but they just have to stop governing the island of Ireland in every way. Then there is no troubles.

Brexit presents a profound opportunity to break with England and form a good Union with Europe. This is a very good thing for all of Ireland’s 32 provinces.
What do you wish for? Border Guards and international boundaries to steal away forever the six Irish provinces to support the myth of the doddery Retards of the recalcitrant racist UK? And then, somehow, to blame poor bloody muslims for all the bad there is? “Celtic Warriors against Islam?” Oh, for fuck’s sake…what have they been drinking?
