Flying pigs, and other natural wonders.
What is there to say that hasn’t been said already? The election is already fading into history, and on this side of the border we have a split EU/ UK personality to look forward to, with a border in the Irish Sea. Since both the DUP and Sinn Fein lost out at the polls, a new attempt to make our local politicians actually go to work in Stormont now may have some leverage, since even her in good old Northern Ireland, their near three year absence from work is starting to get to even the most staunch DUP and Sinn Fein voters (these two parties lost votes in this election to more centrist ones J). It’s about time someone held these absentee idiots to account.
So what happens next? In the long run, I still hold by my comments here: https://oldandireland.blogspot.com/2018/11/brexit-dirty-word-in-any-european.html , that the Irish sea border could be used to Northern Ireland’s economic advantage by encouraging British companies who trade with Europe to relocate, but our politicians, especially the DUP appear to be too narrow minded to do this. I also still think as here: https://oldandireland.blogspot.com/2019/10/d-u-k-dis-united-kingdom.html, that in the long run, This will bring about the fragmentation of the UK into its constituent parts.
Oh well, since English voters seem, like Turkeys voting for Christmas, to have chosen the Boris the Blonde to wreak havoc for the next few years, the ineffectual influence that the DUP once thought they had is now gone, and we will live with the consequences no matter what. You never know, perhaps Boris will dish out a big bag of presents to us all. Perhaps the DUP and Sinn Fein will realise that you actually have to talk to each other to make government work. Perhaps too the EU will deal with some of their own rogue leaders (like those in Cyprus suspected of complicity in murder) and will make even Boris realise that staying in the EU wouldn’t be so bad after all. Perhaps pigs will fly. Personally I think the chances of a good outcome for all this are rather longer than those of winning the Euro Millions (1 in 139,838,160).
