So if you are as comfortable on a surf board as you are meeting the board, then consider...

What Does the Election Spell ?

While the polls predict a considerable Conservative majority in Westminster with a continued decline for Labour, many wonder just what it will mean for Northern Ireland. The snap election has already in the eyes of some parties derailed the present political negotiations, while others may see it giving the breathing space needed.

Neverendum ……

The Brexit saga drags on as the threat of another Scottish Referendum on Independence was floated. Just as Parliament passed the Brexit bill, paving the way for the government to trigger Article 50 so the UK can leave the European Union, the reprocussions of Brexit continue. The Lords backed down over the issues of EU residency rights and a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal after their objections were overturned by MPs. The bill is expected to receive Royal Assent and become law on Tuesd...
