You are probably in the top 1% of Brexit-obsessed lunatics in the country, and as such, negative media coverage will rarely be done 'properly' in your eyes.

Secondly, your link has a BBC logo in the top corner.


The BBC is run by the current government, we have riots continually in the UK as a direct result of your brexit.

How would you like it reported? Are you now dismissing all BBC reports based on them 'being run by the government', or just the ones that you don't like?

We do not have continual riots, and in any case any recent public disorder has involved BLM, 'kill the bill', and the Sarah Everard vigil - none of which have anything to do with Brexit.

it's not my Brexit btw, it belongs to everyone, including you. Enjoy. :thumbsup:

We have to recognise, and this is fundamental, that when we decided that Brexit was the way forward, and when we choose a particularly hard Brexit, that there would be consequences. And those consequences would be felt most acutely in Northern Ireland, where there is some land border,


Whilst Naomi Long is right about the dishonesty of Boris' Brexit what he agreed to was no effective land border on the island of Ireland and that's where the problems lie.

The DUP were the only pro-Brexit party in Northern Ireland because they saw Brexit as an opportunity to overturn the Good Friday Agreement - something they have never agreed with.

it appears to be criminal gangs encouraging teenage boys to cause public disorder.

Some like you, are blaming Brexit, and will undoubtedly milk it for it's worth - while others are blaming Sinn Fein for breaking lockdown rules, or it could just be par for the course behaviour, as it doesn't take much for it to kick off over there.

Considering that Boris Johnson likes history so much maybe he can pick up a book and read what happened when the British tried to partition India.

I believe the EU has not yet ratified the TCA due to difficulties surrounding the NI protocol. This could get very messy.

Don't know a huge amount about what is going on at the moment but this seems like a useful summary.

Arlene was meeting with Loyalist paramilitaries a couple of weeks ago, no doubt socially distanced.

It goes without saying that you will 100% blame any disturbances on Brexit, and will miss out any other contributing factors.

Do you think those young lads tearing up the street in their balaclavas and trackies give a shit about Brexit, or even understand it?

Brexit happened in January - what took them so long to protest?

You are conveniently ignoring the Sinn Fein lockdown ruling from last week, or that paramilitary groups behind criminal gangs are seeking reprisals for recent police clampdowns on their activities.

Any excuse for a punch up in N Ireland - you should know that.

It always takes a while before people hit the streets but this has been brewing in the yoon community ever since the WA was introduced. But yeah, kids...
