Campaigners from Derry Girls Against Borders have been in Brussels to meet with European, British and Irish representatives ahead of a crunch EU summit taking place this week.
“Our two leading parties are disingenuously gambling with the future of every Northern Irish citizen. There probably won’t be any winners. The ultimate casualty could be the prospect of devolution ever returning to Northern Ireland.”

“Super Stormont Deadlock is a sort of retro throwback Street Fighter clone except you can play as Arlene Foster and Michelle O'Neill. It’s a bit of a let down, but that's all by design.”
“This is not to at all say that homophobia does not exist year round or that Wells, Allister, and co. only despise us for one calendar week. They simply shout louder when walking down rainbow lined streets forces them to recognise the physical manifestation of their sad and weakening minority.”
