Poor Larry the cat having to live with that witch Theresa May who thinks animals have no feelings. 

I pity all the shitheads who supported her, blindly believing all her unconvincing crap.

Wishing all tories assholes and their ill-informed fascist supporters to fall into misery, despair and hard suffering very soon.

Inaccurate on the part of Leo Varadkar. The Irish Government's role is consultative.

For the avoidance of any doubt whatever, I will share any legal opinion to the contrary commissioned by the DUP.

Seriously wrong step! It also sends out a negative message about the way the UK perceives rights.

And there will be challenges to this. It's a complicated area and there is a global dimension to Rights.

Well we can't have it all,  can we?  

A country wants to be out after years of moaning and such... What did people expect with frontiers?  Gibraltar and Northern Ireland will have to have a frontier too.  And if they don't, then people from the EU will walk there whenever they want. Legal or illegal people.  And brexit was built upon the idea of having a more strict immigration policy. 

I don't know,  I feel as if people are so used to living in a certain way that cannot understand the extent of such radical decisions as leaving the EU or being independent.  I listen to some Catalán people and they gave zero idea of what it means to be an independent country.  It seems the same in the UK.  They expect all good things to happen instantly and are unable to see the problems.

Exactly. Its shocking that the British people are shocked at the consequences of Brexit. Were they expecting only positives and no negatives? I mean I ve read that a British minister has said that the EU Medicine Agency could stay in London irrespective of Brexit and now they are shocked it moves to Amsterdam? How can anyone think they can be THAT entitled and that rules don't apply only to them or they don't know the rules (bigger possibility)? And its astonishing how little people know about EU matters like open skies, functional airspace blocks etc. With no deal no British planes would fly to EU and vice versa and ppl are shocked again. Well, hello. All those liberties have been created within the EU and the public don't seem to gasp the rights are not up for granted. And they wont stay the same after Brexit or at least they have to be regulated bilaterally between UK and EU.

This is most unbecoming of someone sitting in The House of Lords

Referring to the Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) by his ethnicity and using such a feeble excuse for doing so should result in some formal sanction surely?

At the least, an apology is required.
