    Ah I see where you are coming from..

    Well yes, that could possibly be true.

    Certainly the North will have nothing to do with it. We dont bomb people any more.

    I lived in England in the late eighties and early nineties. Every time I passed through Heathrow, Luton and Holyhead, I never quite sensed that sense of "we're all British" togetherness from the British cops, Branch and Border officials. Did I miss out on something?

    Judging by the top discussions on here, it is way down.

    Anyway, great discussion and banter. Which is what it will amount to really.

    People have given everything and of course MONEY to make this work, but it still may not realise ambitions.


    But still lives go on outside of this kind of discussion mainly.

    That is the reality. The Assembly is Theatre. Paid for a pre Brexit Government.

    Immoral to fight a war you can't win.

    War ? What war?

    Gangsterism and extortion yes, cowardly bombing shooting and terror ( mainly on its own community) yes. But no war.

    I think you might have ran away with that

    Says the poster who entered the thread saying MMG had resigned purely on health grounds and then went into a total melt-down when the resignation letter was posted

    McGuinness didn't look great tonight. Any update on the health front? He'll be missed if he goes.

    Ah my dear I would love to hear about my "melt down" I actually keep that term for my little nephew who has ASD and cerebral palsy. But off you go.

    And he did resign on health grounds aligned to the other issues.

    One would have to be a moron not to see that.
