There is only one part of Ireland with the "highest offices" occupied by SF. See if you can guess where.

Fianna Fail are hardly terrorists, unless you're concerned about government spending on public sector pay deals, but it would raise some eyebrows if they were consulting with the Kinahan cartel on ways to sabotage an international trade agreement they campaigned for!

It's both more invidious, and insidious than that.

After "consulting" with their terrorist comrades, the DUP minister responsible, has decided to stop construction of the Border Control Posts, that are required under the NIP, at Belfast, Larne and Warrenpoint.

That might have something to do with the fact the Irish government constantly used the threat of "potential dissident violence in the event of a hard border" to get their way in the Brexit negotiations.

Indeed. Dangerous times:
A former loyalist paramilitary has warned that Brexit tensions in the North could soon lead to “active, orchestrated loyalist violence.”

In a special report for The Pat Kenny Show this morning, Newstalk reporter Barry Whyte spoke to members of the unionist community about the ongoing tensions over the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The protocol, which keeps the North in the EU single market for goods, is included in the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement to prevent the return of a hard border in Ireland.

The former paramilitary told Barry that young loyalists are gathering information on people they view as “legitimate targets” – including members of Northern Irish political parties and the Irish Government.

“Unless something major changes in weeks or possibly months, I could see violence,” he said.

“It might start off low-key. It could be interface violence or rioting between teenagers but if this continues on this path, you are going to see active, orchestrated loyalist violence.

“I know, at the minute, there are discussions – there are young loyalists involved using encrypted messaging apps talking to each other.

“People starting to gather intelligence, addresses and car registration numbers of people they would regard as legitimate targets.”

He said potential targets could include anyone involved in agreeing or maintaining the protocol – including, “anyone involved in Sinn Féin, the SDLP, the Alliance party and the Irish Government.”

“Leo Varadkar, I would not advise him to come to Northern Ireland without some kind of security,” he said.

“He is a hate figure here now because of the constant threats he was making about, if you put any kind of hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, you are bringing back IRA violence
.
Varadkar and Coveney's handling of this issue will go down as a major historical error.

Context on Varadkar:
The Tánaiste has never made any violent threats of any kind; however, in October 2018, he warned that any hard border in Ireland could become a target for violent paramilitaries.

At the time he showed fellow EU leaders a newspaper clipping which reported on an IRA bombing at a Newry Customs Office in which nine people were killed and six people were injured.

One might equally write:

The DUP campaign for Brexit.
The UK votes for Brexit.
The EU and ROI use the threat of dissident republican violence to enforce an Irish Sea border instead of an Irish land border, thereby effectively annexing part of the UK.
Loyalist paramilitaries respond.

The DUP have played a terrible game, but it's just amazing how the ROI/EU can't see their part in this farrago.

Views were more moderate in the 60's than they are now, which is akin to what was said by the older folk that sometimes implied Catholics attended the 12th etc and both communities lived amongst each other without problems.

Great video.

Of course, the Ulster Protestants featured there were all absolutely right about the insidious role of the Catholic Church in Eire - as most southern Irish have since acknowledged...

Alliance and SDLP saying that the DUP move to stop building Border Control Posts is illegal as it needed the agreement of the entire NI Executive to be implemented.
Also of course it wallows the EU to say to the UK, look you are not implementing the agreement.
