Except we actually don't leave for another 11 months.

Also Boris Johnson still hasn't released the Russian interference report.

I was sifting out my Type O Negative collection of its racist and teenage garbage songs, and I found this mildly funny:

"Hail and Farewell to Britain" from the 2007 "Dead Again" album

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQDxyopurpk

Quote
Once upon a slime I thought you royalty
I would never have questioned Your loyalty
Don't act so surprised I saw through your disguise
But with friends like you Who needs enemas

Up until recently Never had a clue I must admit I pity you

I'm through with your kind Cause you've wasted my time
Please do not release them Lord, knows what they do

I can't believe how cruel life is
Emotional blackmail Makes me sick, oh so sick

Who is to blame for constant shame on you
These words I use, Don't confuse, with cool
This misfortune, not lost but won deserved
Choosing is hard Careful which god you serve

Traitors many, surrounding me cowards
Conspiracy so clear to see flowers
We were brothers ‘til discovered
Deceit tried with treason That's the reason you're beat

All hail and farewell to Britain All hail and farewell to thee
All hail and farewell to England All hail and farewell to me

<<My image in some places, is of a monster of some kind who wants to pull a string and manipulate people. Nothing could be further from the truth. People are manipulated; I just want them to be manipulated more effectively.>>

-B.F. Skinner

It's good I think, they didn't run enough seats to form a government on their own but that would be a serious possibility the next time.
The party is fresh, Mary lou doesn't have ties to the IRA that the former head of the Party Gerry Adams did (or did not) the perception created baggage.
Thing is this now creates a four way split for the government between SF, FF, FG and miscellaneous so it is going to be hard for any outcome of this to lead to anything but an election.
Significantly SF will call for the United Ireland poll (the Irish side), but this doesn't trigger it for NI (though would put huge pressure on the UK if it was a resounding 90+%)

The reason they got so many seats doesn't have anything to do with Brexit or NI:
In the republic we have a really serious healthcare and housing crises that has not been fixed or improved in any way by the leading party (FG) or their limpet in coalition FF, so SF were the next largest party for people to jump to.

It is now very hard to tell if there is a government can be formed over the next few weeks or if we will need another election.

Apparently, one of the other factions will play ball, and the other is mush-mouthing about past violence.

FF might, they are the guys who ran the economy like a casino, I would be more scared of them back into power than any of the others.
To be fair unless you are the greens or a party formed in the last year or so you can't really complain too much about SF and the Trobubles,
FF/FG were formed out of a violent uprising a century ago, but when you look at their policies they aren't hugely different to SF, which while technically a nationalist party is centre left and they are centre right

It looks to me like Ireland is rejecting the neoliberal consensus which has gripped the country for a very long time now.

I also just remembered, like, yesterday, that as a British citizen I can live, study and work freely in Ireland. My family are moving back to Australia, for whatever reason, but it does mean Ireland and New Zealand are both on my list of jobsearch locations.

Yep, and I think four years in you could apply for an Irish passport which would allow you to work anywhere in the EU.

That's a point...especially since Ireland and Australia both allow for dual-nationality.
