Not sure if Frost’s greatest crime is failing to acknowledge the Irish Protocol in setting out British Govt position, or claiming Edmund Burke as “one of my country’s great political philosophers” - Burke of course was Irish... https://t.co/iOUu6JZGtJ

A ‘grand coalition’ by definition is an arrangement between the two largest political parties of opposing political ideologies uniting in a coalition; FF / FG are both centre-right, profit before people parties; they should forget about coalition and merge! https://t.co/cw7O6lAQW4

Why does media only ask Mary Lou about her “strings being pulled by others” ?! I sat in RTE studios on Sunday alongside unelected FG & FF puppet masters!!

13 Feb 2020, 10:37 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

The first counterrevolution succeeded because the people were war-weary, subservient to the bishops & radical thinkers were lost - any attempt to subvert #GE2020 mandate for change will be met by a grassroots movement rich with radical thought & subservient to nobody #TonightVMTV

@TraGearrFear @joannatuffy Joanna is a proactive advocate for Israel - a pariah state up to its neck in war crimes against the Palestinian people - Irish citizens will take no lectures from her!

After their initial shock, Fine Gael reaction to #GE2020 performance is abysmally arrogant - clearly not listening to the public - hubris not a good look

11 Feb 2020, 12:10 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

In discussing #GE2020 the established commentariat have utterly failed to comprehend the significance of the grassroots #VoteLeftTransferLeft strategy - this has clearly played a key role in electing leftists across the board

10 Feb 2020, 6:41 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Sinn Féin now the most popular party across the country - topping the poll in 37 of 57 constituencies north & south!! https://t.co/bFIDmdzAlz

10 Feb 2020, 1:03 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@ashstronge Hard not to see it simply as a derisory term thrown about by the chattering classes and established commentariat at those who dare challenge the neo-liberal status quo

SF topping 8/11 Dublin #GE2020 constituencies - also winning seats in counties where we haven’t had a TD since the heady revolutionary days - Wexford / Galway / Mayo - incoming SF front bench looking mighty impressive!

@AndyofAlliance @sinnfeinireland Brexit may have featured more in a November election - Leo may well live to regret not going to polls then

9 Feb 2020, 10:24 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@AndyofAlliance @sinnfeinireland There has been general ‘team Ireland’ approach to #Brexit with political parties attempting to work together in national interest - this completely neutered Brexit as an area of narrow contest - FG made serious mistake in not seeing this

9 Feb 2020, 7:24 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

@MiguelDelaney @DanielCollins85 You can’t use 1 person (who was immediately disciplined) to tar an entire movement of people - we don’t have a single policy position that would back up your statement. Core philosophy of SF is anti-racist, anti-fascist, and very much internationalist

8 Feb 2020, 7:01 p.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

It’s customary during an election in Ireland to say “never mind the rain; vote Sinn Féin!” In #MeathEast this evening pushing the #GE2020 canvass to the limit to get @orourke_darren over the line https://t.co/hi3PgleAe1

Fine Gael’s tanking in opinion polls has got nothing to do with Brexit or Britain - it’s because they have failed to effectively deal with huge domestic crises in Public Services https://t.co/7XemnmuXkg

2 Feb 2020, 8:28 a.m. Chris Hazzard (Sinn Féin - South Down)

Perhaps most important dynamic to BP/RedC #GE2020 poll is the fact that SF are significantly more popular than the others with those under 55yrs of age - the duopoly of FF/FG is finished - there is a clear, progressive alternative!! https://t.co/BKC0roBqkZ

I’m guessing Jim doesn’t know that ‘Reynolds’ was a Norman import - first to England, then Ireland. Derived from the Old Norse Rognvaldr; taken in honour of ‘Reynold’ the Viking leader who raided along the Irish coast in the 10th century https://t.co/cnDBpvGGJu

Important to note that US have form in terrorising Iran: CIA overthrew Mossadegh in ‘53; aided Saddam in Iran-Iraq war; shot-down Iran Passanger Flight 655; crippled economy with embargo & sanctions; assassinated General Soleimani; and built ring of military bases around Iran https://t.co/ymwvPLwRDg

US have assassinated Iranian Major-General Soleimani in a drone strike in Baghdad - other victims of attack were from the Lebanon and Iraq. The Middle East and beyond will undoubtedly see this as an act of war - there will be dark days ahead

@AndyofAlliance @annermcmurray Andy your putting words in my mouth - I didn’t say every recipient of an honour was a flunkey / hireling - many good people deserve civic recognition; however this is an archaic system rooted in old empire culture rife with political corruption & inappropriate patronage

Odd that so many people are only now discovering that an honours system rooted in empire will be used by the British establishment to reward their flunkeys & hirelings #IainDuncanSmith

PSNI CC Simon Byrne should ask INTERPOL to investigate the theft of police issued automatic rifles in Los Angeles, New York, London & Madrid https://t.co/aw5QJzE0ZO

@stevesher84 @mmurtagh85 @PaddySav @Marty_Anderson @BrianOgs Benny’s 2010 performance in Ballybofey was one of the best all round individual displays I’ve seen - a focal point for every Down team in that era he was always targeted by opposition in the big games but never shackled imo

@PaddySav @Marty_Anderson @BrianOgs Get Benny Coulter in that team - play without a keeper if need be... @mmurtagh85

I’m guessing Micheál Martin is preparing a press release this morning to celebrate the moment the Govt of Ireland Act received royal assent on this day in 1920

Hey @thehistoryguy that “UK Civil War 100 years ago” you refer to was an anti-colonial struggle for national liberation - Id guess that’s why pupils in Ireland learn about it and pupils in Britain don’t - mores the pity https://t.co/9pAc8RfSoj

Simon Coveney hinted publicly that DUP were the problem in the Autumn - however Julian Smith clearly felt unable to agree publicly before last week’s election! Tory/DUP pact was toxic for local politics - DUP have always been the blockage to restoring Stormont!! https://t.co/cSHyYyFZoA

Surprise Surprise - first political panel show post-election and the SDLP representative admits that despite election promises they can’t in fact ‘Stop Brexit’ or ‘Stop Boris’ #SundayPoliticsNI

Reflecting this morn on the seismic political changes in the north of Ireland in my lifetime - unionists won 15 of 17 seats in ‘83 election; now its just 8 from 18. ‘NI’ was a statelet artificially drawn on a sectarian headcount - it’s plurality today is forging a better future! https://t.co/qkXcKFmRt2
