A rather unnecessary personal cheap shot.

Isn't it curious how people will claim they are against tribalism, then pigeonhole themselves into tribes?

He's a lawyer and well known for making rather suspect pronouncements on NSG. I really don't think he'll be offended by the use of a rather well known trope.
Strong opinions, lightly held.

And actually infrastructure mega projects have a Keynesian effect, stimulating demand and creating jobs.

And if you mandate the steel, concrete and aluminum used be made in the UK it could help support those industries.

And it would reduce trade costs between NI and the UK.

You can't as Obama found out in 2009 it violates WTO rules for government projects to only use local steel.

Really because the whole Brexit campaign was the EU was going to make our pints smaller.

I hope you understand when we commandeer you entire tea supply for the war effort.


None of these are true, they are all lies. It's a persistent pattern to Greed and Death posts. Is pointing that out a personal attack? Is Greed and Death not trolling?

It's a good question, and one I'd like moderation to address. Is referring to a persistent pattern of a poster an attack on the poster themselves?

I'm not seeing anything actionable.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding
