Tweet With all the furore over the Radical Independence protest at the UKIP press conference in Edinburgh (ahead of the Aberdeen Donside Scottish by-election on June 20) I couldn`t help but notice the rather vociferous use of the words Nazi, Racist, Bigot, Scum & Fascist aimed at Nigel Farage. The Belfast News Letter website has a [...] more »
Tweet Royal Irish Regiment, Royal Ulster Rifles Association, Royal British Legion and The Irish Association of Korea working in cooperation with the Irish Embassy and the Somme Association were in South Korea recently to unveil a new memorial to Irish Veterans (largely from the British Army but also US & Commonwealth forces) of the 1951 [...] more »
Tweet A sign of the times. Sinn Fein under attack…from Catholic Priests. “While Sinn Féin support remains high in the Catholic community, they do not, however, have the support of Catholics who are committed to the cause of life and marriage….Catholics understand therefore, that a vote for Sinn Féin is a vote for the weakening [...] more »
Tweet What is presumably a Sinn Fein border poll initiative is to launch on Friday with mock polls planned for Crossmaglen and Creggan Upper (in County Louth) We are officially launching our campaign on Friday – come along if you’re available! twitter.com/UnitedIreland/… — United Ireland(@UnitedIreland) April 28, 2013 Presumably taking a leaf out of the [...] more »
Tweet Much ado about Ken Clarke`s comments on `UKIP clowns, closet racists and fruitcakes` over the weekend. It is amazing however what turns up when you Google various configurations of the words Labour, Tory, racist, nazi & BNP. For example, BNP leader Nick Griffin’s father was a Welsh Tory aide to Ian Duncan Smith in 2001, [...] more »
Tweet Last year there was some controversy over Northern Ireland Health Minister Edwin Poots refusing to lift the permanent ban on men who engage in gay sex from giving blood. Many wanted NI to come into line with the rest of the UK which insists the donor must not have had gay sex within the [...] more »
Tweet So Gerry Adams finally launched Sinn Fein`s border poll campaign at the weekend after rallying support from Irish-Americans last year. Tánaiste Eamonn Gilmore responded saying it was `unwise and ill timed`. The Ulster Unionists & Alliance are against the idea (despite David Trimble previously advocating one in 2003, which Alliance opposed). The SDLP seem to be [...] more »
Tweet Ulster Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt has said that faith schools should be privately funded and that tax payers should only fund one system. He made his statements whilst addressing a UUP conference on poverty. State funding for Catholic Schools was introduced by UUP prime minister of Northern Ireland, Terence O’Neill, (initially 80% funding but eventually 100%) [...] more »
Tweet This week has seen Nationalist politicians falling over themselves to condemn Ulster Unionist peer Ken Maginnis and DUP Health Minister Edwin Poots as homophobic bigots. Maginnis on the Nolan show opposed gay-marriage and referred to homosexuality as deviant behaviour although he tempered his argument by saying “If my next-door neighbour is homosexual, I will treat [...] more »
Tweet Seems to be a lot of news on the lack of water in the City but very little mention of rural problems. Personally here in the backwaters outside Coagh in rural Tyrone (near Cookstown), we have been without running water for over a week. The problem seemingly being frozen underground pipes outside the property [...] more »
