Déjà vu, all over again..

As Mark Devenport says

Tomorrow looks like it will involve yet more talks , and as a number of people have pointed out to me February 2nd really is Groundhog Day.

Although, I think a different link might be more appropriate.

    Waiting for Prodot?

  • Mick Fealty

    Nice Henry…

    Tommie Gorman was talking about the St Brigid’s Day agreement this morning… Hmm… It might have been the seed for something… but it turns out, not…

    Two Assembly elections in one year?

  • joeCanuck

    Why two, Mick?

  • Pete Baker

    Indeed, Mick.

    I’ve fixed the suggested alternative link.

    And from the text there

    Murray plays Phil Connors, an egocentric Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during a hated assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, finds himself repeating the same day over and over again. After indulging in hedonism and numerous suicide attempts, he begins to reexamine his life and priorities.

    Not that I’m suggesting that Mark risks indulging in hedonism…

    On the ‘Assembly’

    She should have died hereafter;
    There would have been a time for such a word.
    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
    Signifying nothing.” — Macbeth (Act 5, Scene 5, lines 17-28)

    Henry94 Campbell seems confused as to the meaning of leadership, he said he was witing for voters to tell him when DUP should move. There’s no chance of a deal now, especially since there wouldn’t be enough time to get P&J through parliament before their election in London..

    How many ordinary people really care about the Irish language and marching? I think we elect not representatives but rival teams of self important egotistical debaters who live in a bubble of academic issues.

    Why don’t the media just leave Hillsborough and just stop reporting? I’d love too see the looks on the politicians faces when they would out and be greeted by a couple of pigeons and me , jeering at them

  • Panic, these ones like it up em.

    Yeah they should do that for a couple of days.

    Go off on the beer for a few days and report the crack from the pub. It would probably make more sense even if they were steeming drunk.

    Just heard a journalist, ..Gordon from the Tele’, on UTV use the phrase ‘A nation yawns again’.

    I think fatigue can inspire great satire. Where is the Portadown News when you need it?

  • Greenflag

    marcionite,

    ‘Yeah they should do that for a couple of days.’

    Make it a year and then this time next year revisit and ask that question which a lot off people must now be asking

    Do the people of NI really need these arseholes ?
