It will be very interesting to see what happens in the May elections in Northern Ireland. Will Sinn Fein gain more seats? Will the DUP still support Mrs. May? Will the SDLP gain ground? I am not taking any bets, but as usual, Ireland, both north and south, will make for stimulating conversation.

In Scotland Ms Sturgeon wants independence by 2021. A pipe dream when she nor the rest of public services understand economics and business.


They just don’t seem to understand that time=money and want everything done by the voluntary sector and free of charge.

In the European elections on 23 May, perhaps UKIP will get stronger. Either way, it is important that you vote, even if you don’t think you are making a difference.
