83894 Good Friday Agreement
Does our resident Norn Irelend lad know what the deal is surrounding the land border with The Republic? As far as I know, troops on the streets is a direct contravention of the GFA, as historically they had a habit of shooting teenagers, as is doing anything which inhibit Co-op between the two nations. That was ratified by the EU and UN(?), so it's not really up for debate (as far as I know) so I have a couple of questions.
1) Why do the DUP want to stir tensions with a hard border?
2) Are my assumptions correct and is there anything else you're aware of people need to know here? It wasn't discussed at all outside warnings from Blair and Major which were dismissed as "Project Fear" despite being, apparently, perfectly valid.

The agreement guarantees incorporation of the ECHR in NI law, with direct access to the courts. Either we need to remain under the jurisdiction of the ECJ, we need a special deal for NI, or we need to amend the GFA.

The GFA doesn't directly mention the border, but it does pledge the removal of "security installations", which could be reasonably interpreted as including border checkpoints. It's very difficult to conceive of a border that is soft on both sides but satisfies WTO and EU rules. If we retain tariff-free trade with the RoI, then we'd be obliged under the most favoured nation rule to abolish tariffs on all our imports.

83879 Revolution
The bourgeois military power existing in Westminster by its politics of robbery, taxation, violence, executions, and torture should open the eyes of the deluded. It is hostile not only to the working class, but, by the essence of things, to all the labouring peasantry as well. The labouring peasantry of the North of England and Wales should understand that only in union with the urban proletariat and the soldiers, in union with the Scottish and Northern Irish poor can the Conservatives be defeated.

This union of the urban and village poor can be realized only through the Labour party. Like it or not, New Labour will now strive towards the same thing for which Corbyn has long since begun to fight. His common goal is the overthrow of the autocracy of ministers and lords appointed by nepotism, hateful to the people, and the establishment of the power of workers by means of a nationwide armed insurrection. For that, their struggle against the right wing fascist media of the bourgeoisie, who are armed to the teeth, will have to be conducted as a regular frontline war, persistent and prolonged.

83826 Nazi Dog Video: The Saga Continues
>Man who taught dog Nazi salutes ‘should be convicted of hate crime’

>A man who recorded his girlfriend’s dog giving Nazi salutes ‘should be convicted of committing a hate crime’, a court heard. Mark Meechan, 30, filmed pug Buddha responding to statements such as ‘gas the Jews’ and ‘Sieg Heil’ in video footage posted on Youtube.

>The original video, uploaded in April 2016, had been viewed more than three million times on YouTube. Meechan, of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire, is on trial at Airdrie Sheriff Court and denies any wrong doing. He insists he made the video to annoy his girlfriend Suzanne Kelly, 29. Prosecutors allege he communicated material that would cause fear and alarm and stir up hatred on religious grounds by posting a clip which was ‘anti-semitic in nature’ to YouTube.

>He also faces an alternative charge of posting a video on social media and YouTube which was grossly offensive because it was ‘anti-semitic and racist in nature’ and the prosecution claimed it was aggravated by religious prejudice. Prosecutors asked Sheriff Derek O’Carroll to convict Meechan after branding his actions an ‘odious criminal act’.

>The depute fiscal said: ‘The video contains footage of the accused stating 23 times in total the words ‘gas the Jews’ in a comparatively short period of time. ‘He accepts he was involved in editing and producing the footage and managed to distill it down to a short period of time. ‘This is not some two and a half hour production with many shards every half hour, this is a toxic distillation of what he may call the best bits of his video.

>‘He has made very, very, sure the phrase ‘gas the Jews’ is repeated over and over and over again. ‘The phrase contains a clear threat of incitement to carry out a seriously violent act. ‘He might just as well have said ‘murder the Jews’ that is the effect of the toxic phrase ‘gas the Jews’. ‘The historical fact of what happened to millions of Jews in a way that frankly is difficult for a civilised society or people to comprehend. ‘Any reasonable person would suffer fear or alarm having heard that awful phrase uttered over and over and over again.

>He added: ‘Mr Meechan said on oath he thought the phrase “gas the Jews” was one of the most horrible phrases he could think of. ‘This was an odious criminal act that was dressed up to look like a joke.

>‘He is a highly intelligent and articulate individual, we are not dealing with some callow youth who is inexperienced with what is going on in the world. ‘The Crown contention is that the inclusion of the dog is an attempt to muddy the waters around him making, producing and posting the video. Meechan had earlier told the court he only ever intended the video to be seen by a small group of friends on his YouTube account and insisted he still found it funny. The trial continues.

Are you a time traveler from the 1970s?

Probably not. The protests aren't at their core asking for change, they're asking for price subsidies and if it gets as bad as Venezuela a few months ago then I'm sure Trump will make some stupid statement to discredit the opposition and entrench a siege mentality.

I don't see how that would play out as neither side has much of a chance to make direct attacks on the other across the Persian Gulf and neither Iraq nor Kuwait would volunteer to be a battlefield.

Quite. When Croatia added the EU rubric to theirs, they seem to have gone from their old blue to an even darker blue. Looks black to me, but apparently it's still officially blue.

Of course, the greater irony is that adopting the burgundy was the first time we'd really exercised any self-determination on the matter. The old blue was forced on us by the League of Nations, as was having everything in French. The contents of the current passport go above and beyond the requirements of the ICAO at the behest of the US. Proper TAKIN ARE CUNTRY BACK innit.

Do you know who else has a blue passport? I wonder how long it will be before every airport in the world has a "blue passport" line.

I am quite sure the line will move really quickly, particularly those based overseas - nobody discriminates on colour, right.

International travel in five years time is going to be just great.

>Sir Edward Heath would have been questioned over sex abuse claims if he was alive when they came to light, police have said. Wiltshire Police launched Operation Conifer in 2015 when the former PM was accused of historical child sex abuse.

>The Conservative politician would have been interviewed under caution over seven claims, including the alleged rape of an 11-year-old, they said. No inference of guilt should be drawn from this, police stressed. The allegations include one of rape of a male under 16, three of indecent assault on a male under 16, four of indecent assault on a male under 14, and two of indecent assault on a male over 16.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41503143

How in Gods name is this still going on? Operation Conifer has so far burnt through £1.5 million without a shred of evidence and the press are still going along with it instead of calling for Mike Veale to be sacked and possibly tarred and feathered.

I seem to remember a mythical time when if someone talked about satanic rituals they would be laughed at.

I think it is quite a different scenario the IRA ended because it felt it had achieved its agenda, ISIS has just been supressed. They are quite possibly in the position where they are strongest now, fighting a guerrilla campaign. As long as the funds don't dry up they are really as much of a threat as they ever were.

Philip Hammond effectively ended austerity today with a £25billion Budget splurge that abolished stamp duty for most first time buyers and pumped £3billion into preparing for Brexit.

The Chancellor ditched his 'Spreadsheet Phil' reputation for tight money management as he fought to save his job - turning on the spending taps to meet a bewildering array of challenges.

Despite the OBR fiscal watchdog slashing growth forecasts, Mr Hammond ploughed £2.8billion more into the NHS, £1.5billion into heading off anger about the new Universal Credit rollout, and paved the way for significant public sector pay rises.

I'd say he can. In the early 00s it's not something that would pop into anyone's head given anonymity was still generally assumed and I'm still not even sure if terms like 'Marmite Motorway' count as homophobia given our cultures love of sex euphemisms.

Anyway, this is the point I was getting at, he signed a contract but 'past actions that could bring disrepute' is a rather nebulous and subjective clause that is largely decided upon retroactively. For example, if the Mrs occasionally pisses on me or I put her over my knee and spank her it can all seem like none of party business but it very much can be if we get labeled the Golden Showers or the police try and do me for BDSM -and that is stuff you would ordinarily flash across your mind. If this came up in a court of law it would be pretty easy to pick it apart on the red hand rule alone and if I were a party leader I would also be rather cautious with the whip anyway considering everyone has some skeletons in their closets.
