    Watch Westminster’s Ulster Border Debate – 22/2 


    ooo\

    On Monday 22 February the Petitions Committee will hold a virtual e-petition session to discuss the movement of goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    MPs will discuss the issue in light of the petition calling for the Government to remove barriers to trade within the United Kingdom.

    A Minister will respond for the Government.

    Watch live from 4.30pm on Monday 22 February:

    Petition sessions and debates are an opportunity for MPs to discuss the important issues raised by petitions, however they cannot directly change the law or result in a vote to implement the request of the petition.

    ==

    OKAY.

    It’s just a wee talk.

    But let’s listen in on them just the same.

    Article 16? Time For UK To Use It! 


    How many of you knew about that hitherto obscure Article 16 which Kaiserin Ursula invoked, then ‘unvoked’ so quickly?

    .

    ..

    I didn’t.

    But now it’s out in the open…

    ….like Hope escaping from Pandora’s Box, and here are a couple of reasons that Britain should make good use of it.

    Johnsons could continue to sell in Northern Ireland if it used concrete or plastic to keep plants from touching the soil but, says Jonathan Whittemore, the firm’s head of production, that would mean a “complete change” in its processes…

    Yet another opportunity for The Jellyfish to grow a backbone…

    .

    ..

    …and ACT, by means of Article 16, to restore sanity – and sovereignty! – throughout the United Kingdom.

    Kennedy Poll Lead? Because He’ll Never Let You Drown – Oops -Down? 


    I see another scion of an ill-starred dynasty is hoping to win a place in the United States Senate.

    Though he is not a descendant of the legendary Chappaquiddick Girl-Drowner…

    ..

    …Joe Kennedy has some policy similarities to that unlamented Sinn Fein fan….

    Which one was saying ‘I’ve killed more women than you, buddy!’

    oooooo

    …most notably an arrogant propensity for poking his arrogant snout into UK internal affairs.

    .

    .

    Joe Kennedy was one of three uppity sticky-beaks who insolently interfered in the last British general election…

    …with a letter to all three Westminster party leaders which ‘urged all three political parties to demonstrate “continued commitment to an open Irish border”, regardless of the outcome of the election..

    https://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/us-congressmen-urge-uk-leaders-to-uphold-belfast-agreement-1.4112585

    This new ‘Camelot’ sticky-beak is of course running in a state which is populated by large numbers of morally crippled people….

    Is All Massachusetts Maladjusted? 

    …so he might well win.

    Sad, really.

    ‘Re-Unification?’ Don’t Hold Yer Breath, Senator Daly! 


    If you have read The Times this week, you will be aware that a prominent member of one of Eire’s major political parties has told the expansionist element in his country that “Ireland should heed the lessons of Brexit and prepare for reunification before any referendum…”

    =

    =

    By ‘Ireland,’ one assumes, he is referring to Eire, because ‘Ireland’ is a mere geographical expression, an island on which dwell two distinct nations, neither of whom has any right to aspire to absorb the other by any kind of annexation, by paramilitary coercion…

    …or by ‘border poll.’

    I know I have said this all before, but there are still too many mainland Brits insufficiently acquainted with the historical and/or ethnic realities, who may be susceptible to mystification by constant misuse of the name ‘Ireland…’

    .

    .

    …into thinking that the proximity of the two peoples, each with a right to self-determination, allows for absorption of the smaller by the larger into a republic repugnant to that smaller nation’s sense of national identity.

    ‘Re-unification?’ The island was only united politically under rule from London! Bet that’s not what’s being discussed in Dublin!

    Clearly, Fianna Fail Senator Mark Daly has forgotten the lines of one of his nation’s songs, about fighting so that ‘small nations might be free!’

    =

    Mark Daly

    His warning to Varadkar that ‘ministers were acting recklessly by failing to hold risk assessments’ may sound like practical advice but in fact it’s just offensive to the British people of Ulster.

    .

    .

    The real ‘risk’ which Daly, and Varadkar, and their Sinn Fein fellow-travellers, will face if they think a border poll plurality, or indeed majority, for the extension of Dublin sovereignty over the Ulster-Brits, is easily and quickly assessed.

    It’s called WAR, and while no Ulsterman or woman wants a war, equally, none of them will sit back and see their country go quietly into the nightmare of alien rule.

    Image result for bismarck counting majorities

    ….

    Any such expansionist antics by Eire would be met with what Bismarck called ‘Blood and Iron.’

    A righteous fight would see to it that Dublin, Cork, Limerick and the rest of Eire’s urban communities would get a taste of what Dublin’s cat’s-paws dished out…

    .

    .

    ….to Belfast and Londonderry and the rest of Ulster over those harsh years.

    Though unlike the savages of Sinn Fein/IRA…

    .

    .

    …the Ulster resistance fighters would not prey on the innocent.

    So let’s send Mark Daly a message, His facile conclusion, that ‘a vote on uniting Ireland should only happen “at the end of a very long process”  ‘ is over-optimistic.

    .

    .

    If the Enemy Within wins in a border poll, there must needs be immediate moves towards Re-Partition of the British Isles, namely the removal of alien-infested areas like Crossmaglen.

    Once the disloyal dregs are subtracted…

    Election Post-Mortem 3. Alliance Party Of Eire? 


    ’The Alliance Party of Northern Ireland?’

    ….

    flag-northern-ireland

    Only till it no longer suits their political convenience!

    We heard that awkward admission last night, when their new MP, Steve Ferry, did his mealy-mouth mumbling best to avoid a question on the treason option, the prospect of another ‘border poll’ going the wrong way.

    Stephen Farry MLA  Stephen Ferry, MP

    …but finally responded to a BBC reporter.

    If there’s a border poll, we’ll have to see…”

    So much for those two words, ‘Northern Ireland,’ carefully designed when that party was formed, to gull patriots into believing the Alliance Party were not into deals with treason…

    .

    .

    ….not out to deny British Ulsterfolk their self-evident right to self-determination.

    It goes without saying that if, by over-breeding and ethnic cleansing, the Enemy Within were to gain a plurality of votes in any such poll, a re-delineation of the border would become necessary, along with population transfers…

    .

    .

    …republicans in Belfast removed en masse to the damnable republic they say they are true to.

    And if that solution were not adopted, if it were said by either government, London and/or Dublin, that Ulster in its entirety were up for annexation y our ancestral enemies…

    …then armed resistance would be justified, and it would be the right and the duty of British patriots on the mainland and elsewhere to assist loyalist resistance, from each according to his or her ability or means.

    Anybody whose response to that scenario is to say “we’ll need to see” is a knave – or in good old-fashioned Ulster talk, a Lundy.

    Unlike much of the rest of the UK, elections in Ulster have always, admirably, been fought on issues of principle –

    ….

     – ‘we are who we are, and what we have, we hold.’ –

    Encouragingly, this past election on the mainland, and the standard of debate in the months beforehand, was to some extent a welcome improvement. One hopes that will continue to improve!

     

    Nobody with any sense of national identity should allow themselves to be distracted by diversionary rhetoric about socio-economic matters.

    .

    Some in Ulster seem to want to encourage such an unwholesome development, the APNI being an obvious culprit.

    No loyal citizen should give them the time of day.

      Too many people in Ulster have been led astray by propaganda in their schools and even more in their colleges, because their teachers are liberals.
      Liberals undermine the students’ British loyalties with a lot of malarkey and inaccurate history.
      Those young people come out of education thinking there are more important things than preserving our country.

      Did you read that she was booed at a closed meeting of senior Conservative activists, her own grassroots denying her the standing ovation the Tory leader automatically gets?
      You can find the story in the Telegraph, I think, but I have heard it from somebody who was there.
      People are waking up but will they wake up in time to stop her treachery.

      Didya see her half an hour ago?
      Dancing onto the stage at her conference.
      Then she had the cheek to talk about electioneering, dishing out leaflets in every kind of bad weather!
      That’s the activists she was talking about, the same ones she does all in her power to keep from any serious say in candidates and making policies..
      I was one of those activists but never again.
      She makes me sick.
