Sunday and the Week’s Media Stupid Statements May 19, 2019

Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.

Coveney claimed last week the CTA “underpins the [Belfast] Good Friday Agreement in all its parts.”This is as exaggerated as as claims that Brexit undermines the agreement, but the fact so many people believe otherwise shows political momentum at work. That will continue as Brexit and the agreement inevitably throw up more complications the CTA will now be expected to accommodate.

Some may regard this not so much as stupid as insulting:

Marriage is not primarily based upon a commitment to one’s own happiness, as we find in cohabitation and civil-partnerships. What sets it apart is that it involves the couple’s renunciation of their autonomy as individuals, in favour of taking on responsibility for creating a home, and where possible, as part of this conjugal vocation, founding a family.

It’s not a ‘complication’ that Irish people in the North are now being denied their right to be Irish or not as they see fit, nor is it a ‘complication’ that the Tories have in past weeks suggested that the ROI be used as a hostage.
