A report that monitored seventeen Northern Irish farms has found that following a Maximum Sustainable Output (MSO) approach can increase profitability by 35%. MSO dictates that farms produce what is viable for the land without excess fertilisers etc. There is also a focus on schemes like machine sharing and community investment.
Every time they open their mouths Mia...they lose another element of whatever authority they have left.
They are desperately trying to take #NI back to the days when they ran the place. In doing so, they are taking NI further away from the union they love!
When what is in front of you isn't working, you start looking for something different...we desperately need something different in Northern Ireland

I think it has been a widely held belief by those at Westminster they want rid of us - way before #Brexit happened. Even if they haven't said it out loud. I think they have been waiting for a demographic change in #NI. Also for Unionism not to be the majority party.
I also believe this odious Legacy Bill they have introduced - it them locking away their secrets of what happened during the Troubles, before they head for the exit.
That's the problem with Westminster they haven't
Scotland should have voted for independence when they had the chance. Now that Global Britain is looking less likely to happen. The English Government won't allow another vote because they can't chance becoming even smaller on the world stage.
I honestly don't think it would matter if #NI left - not that many actually pay us much attention.
Wales' independence movement is growing.
The union is a relic from a bygone era which isn't fit for 21st century.
It is time the #DUP were put under pressure, made feel uncomfortable about holding NI to ransom because they can't admit they made a mistake by backing Brexit. Their actions caused this...Time to face up to it!
Of course, neither of them will, while it suits them. If the #Tories are facing some time in the political wilderness, then PR might become attractive.
In #NI - we don't have much of a say over who takes power in Westminster. #Labour doesn't stand here. The #Tories have a the odd candidate here - who only ever get 0.0 something of the vote, if they are lucky.
So we are waiting on the people of #England to wise up and start voting for their interests, not against them.
Happily #NI best not ship any Amazon parcels as when loaded they become the phenomenon of the fast driving Amazon van with open windows with booming music!!
It certainly is. Plus it shows the world not everyone that is a Unionist is a loudmouth like Sammy or Óg.
There are many who are thoughtful and willing to listen to all sides of a debate.
Sammy & Óg's days are coming to an end. #NI is changing and they don't represent what the vast majority here want.
Is that sobbing I hear on this bright Monday morning?
Let's not forget 'her ladyship' in all this?
If she hadn't threatened May, accepted her deal...I would say #NI would have been safe in the Union for quite sometime to come. But she didn't, she backed 'Boris' & here we are.
You can throw money, gongs and knighthoods at the #DUP to keep them happy but they know what they did when it comes to NI & our future!

Will they happily lose their incomes just to satisfy likes of Og/Sammy/Gregory! They are dragging NI to the exit of the #UK Union by insisting that wee Jeff demand #Sunak put them above the UK's International relations!
Let them keep going if they never want to have a serious role in the future of #NI again.
PSNI officers disciplined 'to allay threat to Sinn Féin policing support'
<< an odd decision.
These officers knew the political signal they were making in publicly (wrongly) arresting a victim of a loyalist attack at the anniversary of his attack
The #PSNI routinely, and often with Court backing, use politics to excuse not removing illegal bonfires, flags, and Protocol protests.
#NI should not have political policing for one side and apolitical for the others.
My Son is at a Grammar - I have a few issues with the school especially on the uniform. They could lighten up on a few things!
However, I have to say that on the issue of their concern for their pupils mental health, I have absolutely no complaints. They are very good - workshop, talks & dedicated days for mental health attention.
I know they don't suit all kids but in #NI there is a demand for them & it continues to grow. If parents
Remember #NI that our dearly beloved #DUP leader the Right Honourable (nothing 'Honourable' about a man who will not implement democratic outcome of an election) Sir Jeffery Donaldson, said he will not be distracted by the noise, will not re-enter Stormont until he gets the Windsor Framework sorted!
Is this 'noise' Jeff? You over promoted, jumped up, out of your depth, egotistical 🤬😡

Not all of us have a hissy fit over other languages been spoken or represented.
This the #DUP trying to show they have some clout on a council they no longer dominate, which is difficult for them to accept.
And you wonder why #Unionism isn't attracting the younger voter...
My lord...they really do have a problem with the reality we all live in!
One day #NI these people will no longer have an influence on how we run this place. They will scream at us 'why did this happen' - we will show them things like this.
Yes very true about Scotland and Wales - however at least all three parties stand in Sco & Wal. Only the #Tories stand in NI - and that is normally humiliating for the poor sod that stands for them!
I think many people in #NI would like the opportunity to take responsibility for our own future - away from the influence of Westminster.
We all don't agree with #DUP humiliating themselves by begging for some crumbs of the master's table.
I don't rate Starmer either but I live in NI - what I think doesn't matter. I can't vote for the party. I don't rate any English politician - they all have their flaws.
So it doesn't bother me if he is bland or has zero charisma - that is the type of politician that we get sent from Westminster*

From this particular person in #NI - I wish they would say it formally, so it is out in the open. It is the world's worst kept secret. Also the DUP would ave to face the reality that is now before them.
It is simple to why the DUP supported Brexit - prove their loyalty and bring back the physical border. They want to try and stop the deepening links between the two parts of the island
@jacqui76 @wsw777 It’s blatantly clear the #Tories want out of #NI Their problem is Dublin is nowhere near ready to take over. #DUP unwittingly helping them by not being in #Stormont. I think DUP plan to stay out to the GE: big mistake for Unionism: we will get #JointAuthority and a move to more all-Ireland integration. I’m all for it: let the DUP be the ones to bring a #UI closer #irony @irelandpolitics @ukpolitics
Now what a double disaster at IT security in Britain!
Since August 2021(!), the #ElectoralCommission, the #UK election watchdog had a serious data breach, leaking information including the name and address of anyone in the UK who registered to vote between 2014 and 2022: https://www.theregister.com/2023/08/08/uk_electoral_commission_hacked_voter/
And on top, #PSNI lost control over the data of all #NI #police officers, including those who had to shield their identities: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2023/aug/09/police-officers-in-northern-ireland-may-leave-force-or-move-after-data-breach-psni
Then I can't see the #DUP ever attracting any new voters especially the younger ones. They aren't capable of changing to make them more attractive. Doug may be trying to change the #UUP but the traditionalists in his party won't accept they need to change either.
So it NI will continue to move away from the Unionist parties towards SF/Alliance which you can argue - are looking good when compared to the #Unionist parties.
Something needs to change in #NI
For what it is worth - I have always believed that #NI politicians were the better option
However, if #Stormont isn't going to be reformed, to prevent either SF or DUP from collapsing the place. Then it is time to close the place for good. The MLA's are forced to go and get proper jobs which require you to actually work for their wage.
It is very clear the DUP aren't prepared to make this place work, when they aren't in charge. Take that option away.
Time for Joint Authority...

#NI SoS Heaton-Harris says the framework remains on track*
BBC News - Windsor Framework remains on track, says Heaton-Harris
It seems that the people of the big island have something in common with us after all in #NI - we all think the #DUP is batshit crazy too! They will never be useful to the politicans in Westminster again. They had that chance, they wasted it.
You aren't telling the majority of us in NI anything we don't already know - we aren't important to anyone on the big island. The most of us here - only pay any attention to politics over there because we
Starmer recognises that #NI is a very different kettle of fish to #Scotland. We have an internationally lodged peace agreement that guarantees our right to have a vote on unity, when NI wants it. If Sinn Féin continues to take wins in elections, then he faces a very real call for a vote.
Honestly Harriett, I think they have run out of ideas & are treading water until #Sunak puts them out of their misery, calls the General Election.
To deal with #NI you need a minister with skill & talent - to handle all the egos here. Heaton-Harris and Baker are not the men for the job. They were shocked that not all NI politicians were like the #DUP
The DUP are trying to get something out of the Tories because the know that Labour won't pander to them
'What if' - the road not travelled! It was disappointing that Labour didn't win in 2017 but that is now water under the bridge.
No point looking back - you have to fight the political reality you face in 2023.
If that means a Labour Government with Starmer instead of a Tory Government with a spineless #Sunak or a inhumane #Braverman - then vote for Labour on the Thursday and start fighting them on the Friday.
All I want is a future #NI SoS to announce the date of a Border Poll!
I just don't see much improvement happening in the UK even with a #Labour Government, they will have such a mess to clear up - they will be fighting fires in all directions.
I am done with #unequal union.
She once said she would leave #NI if it was ever reunited - as she spends so much time in GB on that propaganda channel. Maybe she shouldn't wait to leave NI.
She should go now, take her narrow world view with her and leave NI to the people who want to make it work for ALL it's people.

Poster of Taoiseach Leo #Varadkar burned on #loyalist bonfire in Tyrone
<< For his (with #RTE / #FG) attempts to embrace loyalist views?
Such hateful festivals will never moderate or compromise. They are the smouldering reminders of a long burnt-out imperialist worldview.
It wasn't all voters that were disengaged last week in #NI elections. Our turn out for the Local Election was slightly up.
It was #Unionist voters that didn't turn out. The introduction of mandatory voting maybe might not be required, if their leaders could offer them a positive vision of the future, that encourages them to go out and vote!
🚮 annoys the life out of me. He knows nothing of what he speaks about. He doesn't know what it was like to grow up during the Troubles & he certainly hasn't read a history book. If he has, he certainly hasn't understood it.
He is 🤡 and is best ignored. He offers us nothing of benefit in #NI
I have just watched Once Upon A Time Northern Ireland on iplayer about the Troubles (what a really understated title that is)
What he nearly destroyed here is unforgivable. For that alone he deserves to be confined to #history and much worse.
#NI how the hell did we survive that?
A not so gentle reminder....#NI doesn't need the hot takes from the likes of #Sky #BBC or another English media outlets about what our vote means. We know exactly what it means, why we voted the way we did and what we want to happen.
Time to start paying some attention to other people....
As wee Jeff ( 😭 ) comes on TV
today - talking about being biggest party of #Unionism, which is correct.
Maybe leave the copy of the #DailyMail down, talk to some real people, stop reading nonsense being thrown at you by the people who lying to you for their own gain.
Offended yet Mary? You all aren't like the Tories & #NonDom Billionaires that run England
Many of us would like you to leave our island for good, so we can start to repair the damage done by your border!
Well Mary in Nottingham - let me return the favour based on what we see of you - that everyone in England is a #Tory who will lie and cheat their way to the top, to feather their own nest with touch of racism and xenophobia thrown in!
25 years ago, just after the #GoodFridayAgreement in #NI, I stumbled into history unknowingly, arriving on one of the first trains to Belfast without a border stop & inspection. A TV crew on the platform asked about the voyage. I said it seemed very normal.
The reporter turned to the camera and said, “Well, there you have it. The future is backpackers from California on holiday!”
Today, my wife and I will take the same voyage. This time in the First Class cabin. #Travel #Ireland
Earlier today, #newstalk was considering what #NI felt about the #coronation. Oh, there are many NIers here explained the correspondent amongst the crowds in London. Guess where they went to in NI, for a 2nd opinion ... Ballymena.
@jeffjarvis What about to start discussions on Natural Stupidity rather than Artificial Intelligence ?
Seems to me the real problem here is Natural Stupidity rather than Artificial Intelligence, too many simply lack Natural Intelligence making Artificial Intelligence bigger than what actually is.
#AI #NI #NS
There will always be a bunch of headers here which will threaten a return to violence, when they feel under threat.
#NI has moved on from that, there isn't the support from wider society for a return, which is what is required for wide spread violence to take hold.
People will not tolerate it. There has been too much progress for us to go back.
I don't really rate #Labour either. I didn't have time for them under #Corbyn and I still don't have time for them under #Starmer. They are English after all. Whatever colour their badge they will prioritise England over the rest of #UK.
You have seen the abundance of flags due to insecurity, the introduction of #voterid which we have had for quite sometime on this side of the #IrishSeaBorder & the introduction of the concept of 'themuns' Now you finally get to the stage of #TacticalVoting
Many of us in #NI have been voting this way for years - not who we want but who will get the other lot out!
All you need is #PR and your sorted!
However when ID laws were introduced it reduced the number of incidents. Plus it helped improve the confidence of the voting public in the electoral system. So it worked.
#NI proved the system works.
So why wouldn't you want to increase the confidence of the GB voting public in elections.
Plus the real problem in GB is FPTP - which #NI doesn't use for Assembly or Local Elections either.
That is the problem right there. When it happens in England, there is uproar but when it's the other three nations - no-one is interested.
Maybe if those shouting about this, paid some attention how it is working in NI, then there could be a more reasoned debate.
However, part of the United Kingdom already has #voterID laws, which I don't hear much mention about or outcry over.
#NI in 2002 had The Electoral Fraud (Northern Ireland) Act
introduced which amended the Representation of the People Act 1983 which required all #NI voters to have photographic identification at polling stations.
So if it acceptable for us in #NI to have to produce ID, why isn't acceptable to the rest of the UK?

These days you can pay for a guided tour of the graffiti, the tragic memorials, the history of our troubles, as it’s a tourist attraction. Choice of Black Taxi Tour or those red topless buses for the privelege. Only in NI do we make money from tragedies like Titanic, Civil War, Troubles, Bombs… #ni #history
Background: The percentage of #NI school children cycling to school is 0%. The percentage of children walking has gone down every year for more than a decade. Over 50% of children living within a mile of their primary school are driven.
I also do not see how you can allow the freedom to act contrary to the single market without disrupting the flow across the Irish border and/or risking Ireland's place in the single market.
Amazingly, the text recognises this problem but promotes market surveillance (?!) as a solution.
