The DUPes are bleeding like a stuck pig; they can't be seen engaging in any kid of constructive cross-border talks but the longer they leave discussions entertaining possible Reunification means if/when it comes to actually happening they'll be playing their weakest hand (probably a good thing). The smart play would be to make their deals with Dublin now but instead they'll push Poots out front and hardline themselves into greater irrelevancy.

You would hope the absolute neccessity for an all inclusive long term Zero-COVID strategy, so the island could open up and go about its business, would be the push for de facto Reunification – at least the idea of dumping Partition would then be about survival/common sense and less about triumph over unionism.

Thanks, Funt... or Linton?  I like to think that it's your surname, and your first name is Geoff.

The Geoff Linton?

Didn't quite make it out of this shitty year.

Never the news you want to hear at anytime. Sympathy to you and yours, Dan.

... there's some troubling subtext in here about that is never quite unpacked and ratified with the supposedly compassionate and warm person at the center of the story, such as how exactly does this person lecture anyone when her mission is exporting Themyscira's philosophy of an isolationist, martial society which ritualises violence, seems to have drafted its entire population into its military, and which teaches its children that they must fear the Other outside their walls who are perpetually warlike and would be pitiable if not for how dangerous and lesser they are?  "The enemy is both weak and strong" - I mean, come on now.

You mad!!! An actor doesn't get a Producer credit just so's someone can piss on their parade.

I wonder if Alan Dean's Foster might have improved it?

I read his treatment, it's worse.

The UK government chooses to withdraw from the Erasmus exchange scheme.

Irish government has stated students in Northern Ireland will still have access to Erasmus.

Their power is that they are in power and everyone else isn't, and their particular compentency to gaslight a nation with whatever information is available, is well observed.

I believe hammer met nail in a recent Rafael Behr article as to how BJ operates.

Oh, and a friend of mine has an aunt who appeared in the first Star Wars film (he hasn't seen any of the films and gets them mixed up with Star Trek).  She's one of the two women in the Mos Eisley Cantina.

You could tell it wasn't Kenny Baker.
