1/"Ian Paisley apologises at supporters' meeting" bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northe… "Mimicking the actions of the Conservative MP Boris Johnson, a number of Mr Paisley's supporters served tea & biscuits to the waiting media."Does that seem like taking the piss' to you? #JustSaying #Brexit
2/ "The North Antrim MP could face a by-election if 10% of his constituents sign a petition. A recall ballot, where voters can sign a petition calling for a by-election, has been opened.The recall petition is the first in UK parliamentary history." #Brexit #Northernireland #Derry
3/ "In politics they say when you are explaining you are often losing the argument. In recent weeks Ian Paisley has been doing a lot of explaining.
This meeting was organised by supporters of Ian Paisley so the suspended MP was speaking to a very receptive audience. He was in
4/ the company of people who had canvassed and campaigned for him and people who will clearly support him again. The specially invited crowd included local councillors, party officers and students. The audience included members of his family." #Belfast #Edinburgh #Glasgow #Dublin
5/ #ianpaisley #Recallballot #Paisley "Recall #ballot: Venues in Ballymena, Ballymoney & Ballycastle have been opened where #voters can sign a #petition calling for a by-election. According to the Electoral Office for Northern Ireland (EONI), the number of people entitled to sign
6/ the petition - or eligible registered voters - is 75,478.
The Recall of MPs Act 2015 requires a petition to be signed by 10% of that number in order to trigger a by-election.
The number of signatures required would have been 7,547, but last week the Electoral Office said the
7/ figure was 7,543 - due to a "sweep" of the register removing deceased voters and others who were not eligible.If that number of signatures are gathered, Mr Paisley would be forced to resign and a by-election would be called - an election Mr Paisley has said he would fight."
8/ #ianpaisleymustresign "MPs who are convicted of a criminal offence and jailed, convicted of providing false information on allowance claims or barred from the House of Commons for 10 sitting days or longer can lose their seat if there is a successful petition to recall them."
9/ #ianpaisley #derry "The petition is open for signing for six weeks from 8 August to 19 September from 09:00-17:00 BST, Monday to Friday.
Opening hours at the designated centres will be extended to 21:00 on 6 and 13 September." #Brexit #DUP #Northernireland #RecallBallot #Sign
10/ "Anyone wanting to sign it must live in the North Antrim constituency and be 18 years old, or have their 18th birthday before the end of the signing period on 19 September.
But just like in any normal election, anyone wanting to sign it must also be registered to vote in
11/ parliamentary elections. **Where can the petition be signed?**✍️
The Electoral Office selected three designated venues which are located at:
Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre, Ballymoney
Seven Towers Leisure Centre, Ballymena
Sheskburn House Recreation Centre, Ballycastle #Brexit
12/ #Antrim #NorthAntrim "Legislation allows for up to 10 locations for the #petition but the electoral office has opened three, a decision which drew criticism from some political parties. #Voters can also apply to #sign by post or proxy. Applications for those must be returned
13/ to the Electoral Office **by 4 September.*
The chief electoral officer, Virginia McVea, said there had been a change in the law in relation to the postal application so anyone who chooses not to attend in person will be able to apply for the postal option🙂 & if their details
14/ are verified, can receive it within six weeks.
Applications can be downloaded at eoni.org.uk.
There are two help lines for constituents who have queries about the process
They are 02890446600 and 02890446668 " 😎go on ye good thingye @Planet_Belfast @thelinenhall

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

2/And of who and what exactly has been resigning from what company and which board as US sanctions hit, in order to have company still operate in #Ireland as is large ish job provider... #Limerick #Munster
3/ Oleg Deripaksa - Rusal - Auginish Alumina connects to that Mungret cement factory and the infill that they were *promoting to bring in from the aged, unregulated red mud sludge sites at Auginish to burn as 'alternative fuel' - they can't even get it right with basic fossil
4/ fuels, they're not going to with that and many other kinds of **waste they're trying to pawn off on us. Now where did we just here about someone tied up in an international scandal about **waste and potential moneylaundering, and the DUP and what else??

There's far too much #bull being rattled around this ref. proposal. Wake up #Ireland folks; yes, we need to amend wording to reflect reality, ensure equality of responsibility is norm; no, it would be terminally stupid to throw it all out altogether,reduce legal standing of all/1
2/ from potentially exploitative employers' points of view. Amendment should not mean rescinding basic tenets on protecting #economic position of wo/men w children & of childrens' rights to home & care there, it should mean updating in line with values & mores of us now & ongoing
3/ See the shiiiiit-stirrrrring for what it is: #brexit deflector #Border deflector #EU agreement deflector #criminalcase going down deflector #Referendum #Women of #Ireland you're way brighter than that, get a grip. And trolls can just bot off with themselves. Hi @TransparentRef

It would seem to be a mistake to not have taken peoples' very real, practical concerns more seriously irishexaminer.com/ireland/trump-…
This was the article which had been retweeted newsweek.com/trump-building…

1/ #THREAD Ah, teeny tiny demographical instance of something, hastily wound up to a coy, careful kind of un-endorsement of something else, even uses paper in a medical / scientific journal to try substantiate this un-endorsement placement #Beware #BullAtWork How 'well-connected'
2/ and how reminiscent of a certain type of anti-vaccination trolling / disinformation.😬 #Questions such as: A/what percentage of the population actually use the product B/ what percentage of that specific demographic have been injured seriously, in a clinical sense or in the --
3/ particular mode described in the, eh, 'article' ? C/ So even if as seems likely this only verifiably happened to a tiny % of users,& even if the argument that it is all just public knowledge/public info. is applied so it appears to be, lets say for the heck of it, 'authentic',
