Enjoyed #TheToughest. Feared it would be a 'GAA good, everything else bad' style show. Shame it wasn't longer.

League table after last night’s game. We are tied 1st with Thunder with a game in hand. 11 games is the halfway point of what has been one of the closest and most interesting leagues in years. Lots of twists and turns still to come. #ThisIsSuper pic.twitter.com/B9YnxgGrm7

The cabinet of clusterfooks…
Seriously, name one cabinet minister you can say is doing well in their brief? I can't ever remember a government so patently out of their depth. And that is saying something after the country lost it's sovereignty #twip

How many innocent people have they framed? #twip

10. Arlene Foster
Arlene Foster recently wrote a letter to the 27 EU leaders rejecting Northern Ireland’s position in the Customs Union. Tweets of resentment can be seen on Twitter.
"Northern Ireland does not want to be part of the customs union" says Arlene Foster, which makes it a tad mysterious that Northern Ireland voted to stay in the EU.
— James Kelly (@JamesKelly) November 25, 2017
Arlene Foster doesn't speak for Northern Ireland. The majority of people here voted to remain. Staying in the Single Market & Customs Union is our protection against a hard border. https://t.co/uLm105KmaL
