Police stretched, Fire Service stretched, Army bomb disposal team stretched. In any other UK city, this would be a headline. But this is Belfast. We've endured worse so refuse to give up our hope of better. pic.twitter.com/6AmU4RZUBX

Come on ffs…… attacking victims, threats based on religion…… burning the National flag of Ireland & electoral posters. This is not unionist culture. Absolutely pathetic. 😡 pic.twitter.com/dwBmvo18XP

The violence happening tonight, be it in the Bogside or East Belfast, is the dying whimper of a failed past with no place in our future. #enough

Northern Ireland would now vote even more strongly to stay in the EU. I’m spending much of next week in Belfast meeting the political parties, students, business & travelling the border pic.twitter.com/fABeegdTsU

Let's not forget that Chris Heaton-Harris (new Brexit Minister) wrote to universities asking for the names of those who teach courses on Brexit and the content of their lectures. It was like something out of a dystopian novel.

At NATO dinner last night, Trump bragged about Kim Jong Un summit and said he called golfer Jack Nicklaus to say, "They have 1,000 cameras at the Oscars and we had 6,000 cameras in Singapore. The buzz was fantastic,” an attendee tells WaPo.

Right, I'm going on the anti-Trump demo. I had no intention to but his crazed attacks on the EU, NATO, and WTO have changed things. Plus his best UK pals are Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and Piers Morgan. He dislikes everything I believe in and believes in everyone I dislike! 1/2
