This is a legitimate complaint *and* there is a legitimate defence of DD's words. The word Ireland means more than one thing, and every day Brexit is forcing people to engage with that ambiguity. https://t.co/nBBWkpO4jX

Among the ways the Southern US is like Northern Ireland: personal warmth but political extremism. And an endemic inability to confront the past honestly. https://t.co/GkGKvYuqO2

@MarriottRewards lads you just kept me on hold for nearly an hour. I'll just cancel the booking rather than waste more money on your phone line.

Am in the southern US and decided to accompany a drive through the Smoky Mountains with Rush Limbaugh on the radio. Aside from the politics, the format is bizarre. It's just rambling. No apparent structure or preparation.

Some think the Treasury had its way im whitehall for too long: they can now observe the spectacle of what happens when the Home Office has its way https://t.co/2mRQsSbf6i

@sunny_hundal Possibly, I don't want to impugn the man but he edited a national newspaper and it is fair to ask why he bigged up the 'first time ever' broadcast of the speech and ignored the analysis, which is the essential bit. Ppl reading the tweet didnt understand it was a doc.

Post-Barnier remarks, lots of people speculating about the prospect/risk of never sending transition. Reposting something I wrote last year - other than the Tory right it is hard to see where the will to continue with the hardest of Brexits will come from. https://t.co/L5xH9uxPAv

@AllieRenison @DAaronovitch I'm not sure FG has ever published a paper on unity. Both big southern parties have avoided anti-partition rhetoric for a few decades (except the odd statement of aspiration). Eire Nua was quite a significant SF step in the 80s albeit still during the '!armed struggle'
