Re. United Ireland which is starting to get mentioned
Imagine the recent protests in London except 1000 times worse. The people here know that protesting here is pretty pointless - they will be directed to the mainland U.K. I am not sure that people have any idea how bad this could get. Sticking yourself to a train would be nothing compared to the ‘protests’ that would result, there would be no train to stick to!
Apologies for being so morbid at the beginning of the weekend.
Fuck me that’s bleak. Hadn’t even crossed my mind.
Is that something that’s previously been reported with sources?
Won't this spark the very violence they were trying to avoid in the first place? This time from the unionists, obvs...
The world is getting madder by the day...
I have a friend who organises tours for classical orchestras. Sometimes there are 40+ musicians from 15 different countries carrying carrying £millions worth of rare musical instruments. Each one requiring a carnet, valuation certificates, etc. They are having to schedule several extra days into European tours just to cross borders. The revenue implications alone are enough to put her on tranquillisers.
Tbf I'd go see an orchestra on ket
Edit: the orchestra specifically is on ket
Not directly Brexit related but Brexit border related. Really worth watching. Shit's fucked up.
Parliament just started:
Bercow selected Letwin amendment, wahey
Is Spreadsheet Phil voting for the deal???
All these softball questions..
I still doubt it'll go full Troubles.
But unfortunately for some actors a few more deaths in the fundaments of the UK / the Quest for unification don't matter.
I'll be shutting bricks if I were living in some border towns... :/
I can’t see full troubles but it wouldn’t be good at all.
Why has no one even bothered to put down a motion calling for a second referendum? It's now or never.
Why isn’t Starmer leader of the opposition?
Yup, class act he is
Starmer taking the house to school, shame there aren't more tories there to listen
Have been caught doing it a few times over the years and widely reported on up here at least:
Tory ex MSP poses as audience member, not identified when asking questions:
Another +1 for Starmer here.
Starmer getting the dishonesty of Boris on the Hansard..
There’s no such thing as ‘posing as an audience member’. Audience members have political views, more so in political shows.
All of the audience are asked about their voting patterns etc.
If you’re alleging bias in the production of the show that’s different.
So if you introduce a known political activist or representative of a party as "Joe public" that's not misleading? The audience are screened and it would be more transparent to declare their status in that case.
I don't think it's just random happenstance that an Orange Order member and ex-Ukip candidate can be selected for the audience, and asked a question 3+times in different parts of the country with the invariable aim of ambushing an SNP panelist to make them look bad: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/bbc-question-time-investigating-after-13971180.amp
And it doesn't just happen in Scottish episodes:
Looks like a clear pattern of lending an impression of greater tory or unionist support by planting audience members with vested interests imhop.
Here we go.
Here we go, Letwin amendment vote. I predict it passes by 1
Edit: DUP backing it!
I'm a bit nervous and I'm not even British or in the UK.
Wonder what the viewing figures are?
I am waching on Parliament TV, BBC have over 160,000+.
