  1. Comment on Row over GAA tops at University of Ulster
    on 12 April 2014 at 7:51 am

    “The policy will cover, inter alia, political expression, culture, language and dress code.”
    Has there really been no policy in place to cover these things until now?

  2. Comment on Court dismisses case because there were too few present who were likely to be offended?

    “And we all have a full summer of it to look forward to…again…oh joy.”
    And presumably this decision provides a precedent for others to do so with impunity.
    Legally the judgement may be sound but the outcome for society is more conflict.

  3. Comment on GAA/Sky: Armchair viewers can always get off their backsides and go to a match

    “I am uneasy with a big company like sky profiteering on the sweat of amateurs and volunteers”
    Indeed. It can’t be good for the GAA to be getting into bed with Rupert Murdoch that close friend of Thatcher.
    Or is Sky now so all pervasive that no-one can raise a grunt of dissent anymore, not even good Marxists like SF?

  4. Comment on Belfast City Council: “what happened on Saturday evening is a clear breach of our terms and conditions of hire.”

    That is a bizarre position to take.
    Of the 2000 or so PSNI officers from the Catholic community none would be Irish Nationalists?
    You believe in a referendum they would all vote to remain in the UK?
    Are they deluding themselves if they believe themselves to be Irish Nationalists?
    All a bit silly.

    If elected he will have to stand down as an MLA,is that correct.
    A pity really as he was a useful thorn in the side of the big 2.

    “There are NO Irish nationalists in the British Army”
    I was wondering if your reasoning also applies to the PSNI?
    And are’n’t you simply talking about zealots?

    “What do you do if you are in the British Army and ordered to shoot Irish nationalists?”
    Then you might have a dilemma alright. But the number of British army personnel being ordered to shoot at Irish Nationalists is likely to be quite small for the time being. The subset of that number who happen also to be Irish Nationalists is likely to be vanishingly small.
    So in the real world not much of a problem.

    It’s a bit late in the day I know, but that headline is bugging me.
    I don’t think you can use langour as a verb can you?
    Did you mean languish?
    Happy to be helpful.

    “Man cannot ride 2 horses or have 2 masters.”
    Rubbish. Man can do all sorts of contradictory things.Like joining the British army to see the world, or just to have a career, even though still expressing a desire for a United Ireland. Who are you to say they cannot.?

    There are Mental Health and Learning Disability centres in the area with mixed membership. I would think this sort of thing will hardly encourage them to use their local leisure centre.
    This foolishness belongs in a private club somewhere.
