Stable door… April 30, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

From the Guardian.

Brussels and UK officials will clash over the increasingly fraught question of whether the European Union can open an office in Belfast.

At the inaugural meeting on Thursday of a special committee of officials charged with enforcing a de facto Irish Sea border, the European commission is expected to press the case to open “a technical office” in Belfast, three days after the government rejected an EU “mini-embassy” in the Northern Irish capital.

The British government, which says it is fully committed to the agreement, argues an EU office is not necessary and would sow division in Northern Irish politics.

The British government – eh? Division in NI politics? Hmmm.

It’s a strong and stable door.

Airline companies collect money from passengers who book a flight, often months in advance. Like all other merchants, operators like Aer Lingus and Ryanair are supposed to refund customers when they cannot supply the service. That is the law.
Paul Murphy TD asks : “ It seems Ryanair may be using dirty tricks to delay refunds. This person was unable to get their refund as the computer said the CAPTCHA was wrong. It looks right to me though, what do you think? Are there others who have had trouble getting a refund from Ryanair?” https://tomasoflatharta.wordpress.com/2020/04/30/unelected-irish-government-signs-letter-to-european-commission-advocating-legalized-crime-airlines-robbing-money-cancelled-flights-no-refunds/

The present British government is clearly untrustworthy, and will attempt to wriggle out of its agreements in every possible way. We might be going to the backstop in any case (before they repudiate that, too).

The worst outcome here, however, would be to give in to them. There will be far-reaching consequences of how this plays out in the end, not least for us.
