    * Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar says it is “only a matter of time” before same-sex marriage is made legal in Northern Ireland. Speaking at a Belfast Pride breakfast on Saturday morning, Ireland’s first openly gay leader said he was confident that the country would eventually have equal marriage. Mr Varadkar said he attended the event to show solidarity and support for individual freedom and equality. “It is of course a decision for the Northern Ireland Assembly, but I am confident that like other western European countries they will make that decision in due course,” he said. Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and Garda officers also joined Mr Varadkar at the event where uniformed officers will march in the Pride parade through the city centre for the first time. Image:Mr Varadkar joined PSNI and Garda officers at Belfast Pride Assistant Chief Constable Barbara Gray said the PSNI’s presence at the events might encourage victims of hate crime to come forward. “We represent all sections of society. Members of the LGBT community are a marginalised community in Northern Ireland,” she said. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK where same-sex marriage is still illegal. The Republic of Ireland voted for equal marriage in a referendum in 2015. The Parades Commission said 8,000 people were expected to march from Custom House Square, with about 15,000 others lining the route and 60 bands involved.

    * Gina Miller, the lead claimant in the successful legal fight for a parliamentary vote on Article 50, looks at Tory policy in relation to their deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (in form of  the £1billion “bung” for Northern Ireland).Miller release to a pre-action protocol (PAP) that the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain has set forth to the government to test whether the laws were adhered to in respect of the Northern Ireland payment. The government’s lawyers made a surprising response: “No additional funding contemplated by the agreement [with the DUP] has yet been made available and no timetable has been established for the provision of funding,” their letter said. “We have also explained that additional payments contemplated by the agreement will be authorised by parliament.” It appeared the Conservative government had not admitted it needed prior parliamentary authorisation before supplying tax payers’ money to Northern Ireland for their deal with the DUP.With the prospect of new “Henry VIII” powers on the horizon Miller highlights a concerning aspect of Theresa May’s administration. As Miller states: The British public deserves better than a government blatantly attempting to put itself above the law and seeking to bypass parliamentary scrutiny simply to cling to power. It is aware that the public – and perhaps some sections of the press – have become apathetic, and takes it for granted that awkward questions will not be asked. If there is one lesson to be learned from all this, it is that we need to watch this government – and all future governments, for that matter – like a hawk, and be prepared to ask awkward but legitimate questions. The price of liberty, as Thomas Jefferson so rightly said, is eternal vigilance.

    Why does Northern Ireland pronunciation sound similar to American? Recently, I started watching a TV show The Fall, which takes place in Northern Ireland. Their intonations and accents are unique, but their pronunciation sounds a lot like North American English to me. Here are some similarities I have found: The 't' gets softened like in Americans English. For example, 'Peter' sounded like [pi:rɚ], not [pi:tɚ]. The 'r' which is not followed by a vowel is pronounced. For example, 'Peter' sounded like [pi:rɚ], not [pi:rə] The diphthong 'o' sounds like [ou], as in American English, not [əu], as in British English. Did I hear correctly? If so, why are there such similarities? Did the Northern Ireland pronunciation affect North American pronunciation 2~3 hundreds years ago?
