And I remember the olde ooosonians fought a war because they could not sit in Westminster !!!

They won the war, but they still could not sit in Westminster ... but be a tough place to sit ... in ... though I sat near there a few times myself ... :)

All I have to do is look at the thumbnail of John Oliver and I can already tell I'm triggered.

Where do they "take their seats" ??

If they are Irish, they would sit in Ireland ... and that would be "irrelevant" ... but if they sit in England or Scotland or Wales, then would they be NOT Irish?

In which case, why would they be "Sinn Fein" ??

(Confused in Kansas ... :) )


Mac or EUBanana would be more knowledgeable than I am, but this is my understanding:
Northern Ireland has seats in the British Parliament.
Sinn Fein in NORTHERN Ireland won these seats in elections for the British Parliament.
Sinn Fein (as a protest) will not take their seats in the British Parliament though (as a protest).

Yeah basically.

Sinn Fein does participate in government though - in Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland (and Scotland, and Wales) have their own devolved assemblies, different for each nation (Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly, Northern Ireland Assembly) so the UK is partially a federal system.

I say partially... because England gets squat.

And yes, Northern Ireland is different from the Republic of Ireland. Ireland is split in two, the independent Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland, which is a semi-independent province within the UK.

EUBanana, Mac, thanks for the links and commentary. Much appreciated!

The DUP was something of a dark horse, Northern Irish politics were making less and less news hereabouts in recent years, for all the right reasons.

Back to Lord Buckethead. Reminds me about the Black Knight from Monty Python. And here we are.

Cruel and rude. But true. :roll:

Leftist fantasies are amazing.

Did you miss the part where Conservative +

Quote:
DUP whose 10 seats will enable the party to push through Brexit legislation


They took a risk and it didn't work as they hoped, so "wounded" is perhaps apropos. But still standing and on the road to Brexit also seems apropos. Not sure how mockery and grandstanding are supposed to change those realities.
