    Bloody Sunday -

    I suppose the peace keeping conditions would have understandably made the soldiers very jumpy ,not knowing if there was a sniper behind every window or a bomb under every car. Perhaps UN troops with blue helmets would have been more acceptable to all factions as peace keepers.

    Bloody Sunday -

    Most of the time the armed forces in NI were very reserved in their response to terrorist action. I remember a very apt Giles cartoon from the time where a squaddie says " If another one of them bricks bounces of my head i'm going to ask my sergeant to ask the captain to write to my MP to see if i can fire a rubber bullet back ".

    jeanious ? !

    Perhaps said jeans could be marketed as a life saving tool complete with flashing light ,tube for topping up the air & whistle to attract the rescuers who are searching for you. No need for life jackets somewhere under aircraft seats then.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I must apologise ,it seems i have been looking at some bum information . I have since read some other articles that remove any future problems with the treaty that have not already taken place.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I believe the stranglehold of the Lisbon Treaty will not be fully felt until 2021 when every country that signed up is sucked into its grip.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I think a second referendum would have so many alternatives that it would probably not give a clear mandate for any way forward.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    What happens if said extended delay clashes with the Lisbon Treaty being fully implemented ? Are we then trapped for good ?

    Deal or No Deal ?

    Won't mainland Britain be able to source its Irish tariff free meat & produce via NI ?

    Deal or No Deal ?

    Yes, tariff free south to north ,tariff to pay north to south.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    What still puzzles me is that the EU has insisted on borders with non-EU client countries which the UK would be after Brexit, but they are lambasting us in the event of need of a hard border in Ireland.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    Apparently, the EU has no limit on referendum re-runs as long as the "right" conclusion is attained.

    The thin end of the wedge

    Of course the internet will be state controlled in quite a few countries.

    Perhaps it is just an advertising stunt Obs. You would need plenty of wind to inflate them & keep them inflated. Maybe extra sprouts should be compulsory for all sailors.

    I certainly won't be commenting further in case i get labelled as wanting to ban free speech.

    The thin end of the wedge

    One of the problems with social media is that any comments could prejudice court cases & could even result in criminals walking away.
