Famous Belgian

French actor Gerard Depardieu has said he is leaving France and moving to Belgium to live. It is believed that the new 75% tax for the superrich is to blame. Many of the well off in France are following Mr Depardieu and leaving the as well. Mr Depardieu is setting up home in the wealthy Belgian town of NĂ©chin, where he will evade the current Left-leaning government's tax hikes. Depardieu claims to have paid 145 million Euros over the years to the French Government.

The Ulster Unionist Party 1905-2012 Rest In Peace

So Peter Robinson and Mike Nesbitt have set up a Unionist Forum together. Yet the street protests continue and show no end in sight. In fact the leader of the protests has said that the protests show the Unionist people have lost trust in their elected representives to lead. The agenda shows how far they have lost touch with reality. This Pan-Unionist Front is not going to deliver anything. Apart of course from bringing the Ulster Unionists even closer to the DUP. All these joint statements and joint press conferences and now pan-unionist front meetings are only leading in one direction. And that is one Unionist party with the DUP running the show and whats left of the UUP sweeping up after them. Yesterday Mike Nesbitt sounded the death notice for his party.

Irish Government Give Full Support To Scottish Minimum Pricing For Alcohol

The Irish health minister Dr James Reilly said: “I wish to express my full support for the Scottish proposals on minimum unit pricing of alcohol. This is an important policy measure to reduce the harmful consumption of alcohol and, in this regard, the Irish Department of Health is currently preparing proposals for similar legislation in Ireland.”

David Trimble Labels DUP Cynical

The former UUP leader turned Conservative peer told BBC Radio 4's World at One: "I am surprised there is a problem, because the issue could have been foreseen, a compromise was available. It seems rather strange the compromise has not been accepted. It's really strange that some parties who sit at Stormont and accept for government buildings the designated flag days, are out encouraging protests against designated days in other public buildings. It's a pity some parties are now not accepting that compromise." The former Ulster Unionist Party leader said it made him suspect parties had "other motives". "I cannot avoid looking at the fact that the Alliance Party, who provided the majority for this compromise at City Hall, is the party that defeated the DUP in east Belfast in the parliamentary election," he said. "I wonder if this is something to do with trying to regain support that went to the Alliance Party at that stage. In which case I think it's a really quite cynical thing for them to be doing."

What Will Basil Do Next?

1 Join the Alliance Party a liberal unionist would fit in well but would he be able to hold on to his seat at the next election?

2 Join the NI Tories if he joined them he would lose a lot of liberal unionist support. Doing a reverse Enoch may not be that good a idea

3 Going Independent it has not done Lady Hermon in North Down or David McClarty in East Derry any harm could work out well

4 Start up a new Unionist Party maybe he could ask Lady Hermon and David McClarty to join him in forming a new liberal Unionist based on the Good Friday Agreement

Mike TV Removes The UUP Whip From Wee Basil

Mike Nesbitt has removed the Ulster Unionist whip from the Lagan Valley MLA Basil McCrea. Mr McCrea has been a thorn in the side of the party leader for some time. Basil has supported the Alliance party on designated days for flying the flag over Belfast City Hall. Speaking on the BBC Radio Ulster programme Talkback Mr McCrea says he is now considering his future in the UUP.

No Kidding Sherlock

Assistant Chief Constable Will Kerr, of the Police Service of Northern Ireland, said: "Loyalist paramilitary groups are now actively involved in orchestrating this disorder and we've seen that in various parts of the greater Belfast area over the course of the last couple of nights." He said members of both the Ulster Defence Association (UDA) and Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) have been involved.

Alex Salmond Calls For Scottish Independence

The writer is the first minister of Scotland. When the United Nations was formed at the end of World War II, its membership comprised barely 50 independent countries. Today that number has grown to almost 200 — a sure sign that the right to democratic self-determination has been among the foremost prevailing factors in the world as we have moved into the 21st century. And the voice of the United States has often been instrumental in that process. As first minister of Scotland, I lead a country that once was independent and aspires to that status again. In autumn 2014, we will offer the people of Scotland the opportunity to vote to reclaim that independence. As part of the debate in the run-up to that referendum, it is important that the facts are laid out as clearly as possible, and that is why The Post’s Oct. 31editorial[“If Europe crumbles; An independent Scotland would be bad for the West”] was so disappointing. To begin with, the assertion that an independent Scotland would “withdraw from NATO” is quite wrong. The Scottish National Party voted this year for an independent Scotland to continue in NATO membership. Independence will certainly mean an end to the stationing of nuclear weapons in Scotland, that is true, but this will merely put Scotland in the same non-nuclear category as 25 of the alliance’s current 28 members. The claim that an independent Scotland would be “unable to contribute meaningfully to global security” also is untrue. Would the same be said of European nations such as Norway, smaller than Scotland, or Denmark, almost identical in size? As it happens, these two countries combined flew more air sorties in the internationally sanctioned action in Libya than did the United Kingdom. Further, the assertion that London might veto independent Scottish membership of the European Union and its use of the pound as a currency is not borne out by the facts. The recent Edinburgh Agreement, signed by myself and U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, commits both our governments to respect the referendum and to implement the outcome, whatever the result. And it is likely that any London government would be keen to see an independent Scotland continue to use the pound, given the large sums that Scottish sources — not least North Sea oil and gas, the vast majority of which lies in our territorial waters — make to that currency’s balance of payments. Scotland and the United States share close ties stretching back centuries. Many U.S. presidents trace their ancestry to Scotland, while the Declaration of Arbroath, the 14th-century document asserting Scotland’s status as an independent nation, has been held by a U.S. Senate resolution as a direct influence on the U.S. Declaration of Independence. The long-standing ties between our two countries will only be strengthened once Scotland regains its place as an equal member of the global family of nations. After all, the Republic of Ireland gained its independence in the 20th century and enjoys the warmest of relationships with the United States. Does anyone in the United States seriously consider that this relationship would be improved by seeing Dublin return to rule from London? Former president Bill Clinton recently recognized that it is increasingly important for national identities to be accommodated along with the need to make common cause to tackle global problems. Independence in an interdependent world means that the 21st century can see just such a global partnership evolve hand in hand with the political self-determination of which the United States has so often been such a vociferous champion. Indeed, in considering the true interests of the United States, perhaps The Post would do well to reflect that democracy and self-determination must by their nature represent the real interest of America, because they are the core principles on which the country was founded. There is something else worth reflecting on in the Scottish civic debate. In a process of self-government that has taken the best part of the last century, not one person has ever died arguing for or against Scottish independence. The national movement in Scotland is peaceful, democratic and civic in its nature — something perhaps, in this troubled world, to be encouraged as in the true interests of both the United States and of Scotland.

DUP MLA Blames UVF For Trouble

Two hundred were at the DUP mayor of Newtownabbey's Christmas dinner and 400 were at a Christmas function involving singer Peter Corry.Around 30 to 40 loyalists who congregated at the gates hijacked and burned two cars and smashed the windscreens of other cars belonging to people attending the functions.People at the play were delayed and those at the Christmas dinner had their evening cut short because entertainers could not get into the premises.A situation arose where people inside could not leave and people attempting to enter were obstructed.DUP assembly member Paul Girvan attempted to speak to the protesters but was initially stoned.He was eventually recognised by the loyalists.He said that as far as he was concerned there was clear paramilitary orchestration.Mr Girvan blamed the Ulster Volunteer Force.
