PAT+JUDE TALK ABOUT MARY LOU TRUMP, THE REPARTITION OF IRELAND, AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT ISRAEL

You’ll probably not believe this, but Stephen Collins has a Shinner-bashing column in today’s Irish Times. He’s referred to a Dail debate, where Josefa Madigan made reference to ‘Mary Lou Trump’.  So that’s the level of Dail debate – name-calling.  I wonder did Josefa get the idea from Trump?

 

State papers from the 1970s reveal that one option for responding to the Northern Troubles was to repartition Ireland. That would have brought 60% of NEI into the RoI. I wonder how the unionists in that 60% would have responded. Not to mention those nationalists still stranded in an enhanced Northern unionist state.

 

Finally, the Middle East. Both Varadkar and Martin have spoken out against violence perpetrated by the IDF and Jewish settlers on Palestinians. That’s commendable, as is the EU banning Israeli travel. But will that really make the Israelis think twice and stop their campaign of genocide?
