Absolutely right.

Keep focused on the issue rather than widening the discussion as this lets Corbyn off the hook. He has set the bar of proof to an 'inconvertible evidence' level. Hardly anyone would be in prison if the courts worked to such a standard. This is the issue which needs called out.

If it means that he doesn't have to lead he will introduce any test. He is dangerous. His zen like persona is a good cover for arrogance beyond belief.

More embarrassing is the MPs who stay silent or seek to manipulate human suffering to topple this government to seize power. How low can Labour sink?

I assume he takes that view about his many friends and associates too! Hamas, Hezbollah, IRA are all Sunday School teachers and are being bad-mouthed by capitalists, Zionists and the Tories.

No wonder he has difficulties dealing with the problem of anti-semitism in the Labour Party. He hasn't had 'incontrovertible evidence' of it so can't do anything until he has proof. Has he ever heard of the balance of probability? He is supposed to be a leader not a Judge.

The first duty of any government is to protect its people. God help us if we were to rely on Corbyn as he awaited for UN approval even with existing vetoes! It would be the subject of a political farce if it wasn't so serious.

Moderate Labour MPs should hang their head in shame. Look at the outcome of inaction in Srebrenica.

The problems inherent in the GFA demonstrate the weakness of outsiders trying to resolve issues by 'constructive ambiguity'. Which real life soon shows to be temporary fixes. Mandatory coalition should only have been a short term fix not a permanent state. As it inhibits the evolution of a mature democracy. As for institutionalising sectarianism - not an ideal fix for any society.

Your apparent inability to call Northern Ireland by its name tells me everything.

I always laugh at Sinn Fein MLAs, who are members of the Northern Ireland Legislative assembly, as they seek to avoid using the country's name. Shows the degree of respect Sinn Fein afford to Northern Ireland's unionists!

Anyway I think your narrative could do with inclusion of the 1950s IRA campaign. It's campaign of ethnic cleansing along the border of Protestant farmers with no links to the security forces during the 'Trouble' also isn't considered worthy of comment in your potted history of Northern Ireland.

If solving the problem of Northern Ireland was as simple as you suggest I think it would have been solved by now! Cultural, constitutional and community differences are complex issues to resolve. As evident worldwide not just in Northern Ireland.

So core to their beliefs that it wasn't in any Programme of Government and only became a red line in 2017!

You also forget St Andrews brought agreed changes to the GFA.

As for Trump I assume this is a red herring designed by you to shift the goal posts!

Time anyway for the people of Northern Ireland to resolve their own issues without celebrity politicians and diplomats flying in from various corners of the globe. At least the people understand the problems and the true nature of local politicians.

Absolutely Godfrey. Sinn Fein since the GFA has largely disseminated the moderate SDLP which negotiated the Agreement. It is a source of wonder to me that the nationalist/Republican community continue to vote in increasing numbers for Sinn Fein given its link to the IRA murder machine. Loyalist political parties with links to paramilitaries have never secured votes from the unionist/loyalist population and have no representation in the Assembly even though the voting system was developed in an attempt to draw them increasingly into the political process
Sinn Fein have not changed their objective just their modus operandi. Its ongoing attempts to de-Britishise the Province is intent on winding up unionists/loyalists - who need to develop a strategy to deal with this propaganda offensive to win the hearts and mind argument.

Absolutely. Coveney as Foreign Minister has undone much of the excellent bridge building work of his predecessor, Charlie Flanagan. Varadkar is looking to pending Irish elections and is intent either in taking votes from Sinn Fein or entering into a coalition with it, to stay in power. Irish neutrality in things Northern Irish is more illusory than real.
