  1. Comment on Bishop John McAreavey: “Political representatives must answer for their own position on abortion…”
    on 17 April 2014 at 5:18 pm

    Easter week, the faithful are examining their consciences, the election cards are being delivered, couldn’t come at a more inappropriate time for Catholics to be reminded of the forked tongue approach of Sinn Fein to abortion
    Didn’t think that the bishop has to use the phase – greatly appreciated the help of Martin mcguinness,
    Your excellency you are allowed to be furious

  3. Comment on The Glenanne story proves the time for frank admissions is overdue: further prevarication over collusion implies Briitsh government cover-up
    on 24 October 2013 at 7:16 pm

    If the RUC was awarded a George Cross for the huge sacrifice paid by officers, then there is systemic collusion, is there a case for its removal if they are found to be guilty, which would preclude any investigation

  4. Comment on #SpAdBill controversy proves cross community politics CAN work
    on 4 June 2013 at 9:28 pm

    I think this is not the last we will see of mary mcardle or paul kavanagh, expect one of them to stand against colm eastwood in derry, while the other one will get a bye ball in west belfast. Two new |MLAs who cant be sacked.

    Word on the street is that Paul Kavangh is especialy an astute operator with the backroom team at Stormont and gets on well with the wheel greasers in NIO / DUP

    Just as the broadcasting ban and the ban on Adams / McGuinness entering part of UK only focused attention on them, so the discriminatory effect of this legislation appears to be one sided and introduces a hieracy of victimhood. Expect Ann Travers to fade in the way the other special victims get picked up and chewed out.

    In regards to the man losing his job, is he not on an industrial wage as per the MLAs?

  5. Comment on DUP: “The lack of leadership at the top of Sinn Fein has been evident…”
    on 16 April 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Thought that this was a brilliant slight of hand by DUP to cover the real elephant in the room.
    Radio Ulster had Poots & Dowds going hammer and tong about leadership, the Fountain, law and order. The BT has become the print version what UTV is in televisual terms – DUP press office

    The all island vote is the big issue which DUP are terrified of. The GFA states that the union is guaranteed without consent, but if there is no vote then democracy is a sham.

    DUP dont want an open vote, here’s why . . . .
    SDLP and Sinn Fein would get their voters out, pulling on the Orish heart strings, ( especially if there is little chance of it succeeding – vote for unity, but keep your NHS )
    DUP & UUP will get the numbers out but to the extent they would hope?
    Alliance – with the in fighting with unionism will their troops at ground level be happy to rub shoulders with those that stayed silent when they were being attacked. So will the middle class be enthused to vote or go to the garden centre?

    The line in the sand will then be drawn, so that a repeat of a vote would have to be taken every 10 / 15 years.

  6. Comment on The shrinking heart of the UUP: A lucky 13?

    Better to photoshop it so that losses in future can be literally airbrushed.

    Thought Nesbitt had his best public appearance in a while, maybe getting shot of the two liberals means he has a core team to trust

  7. Comment on Exclusive: Ian Paisley’s belated acknowledgment of David Trimble’s legacy: the principle of Consent…

    DR –

    Arlene was ‘minded’ to support a border poll, that wee phase didnt work the last time Seymour Sweeney was trying to develop a visitor centre at Giants Causeway

  8. Comment on Border Poll: “We may just call your bluff on this one Mitchel…”
    on 22 January 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Its all about the pounds, schillings and cents

    Heard Mitchell on this morning, saying that duplication was costing 4.8 billion per year, this sounds like the Alliance saying that a divided society with multiple bus stops and schools costs a billion per annum.
    When are these chumps going to tell us who will get the boot, and what other jobs they are going to get?

  9. Comment on PSNI ask protestors to allow GP through, don’t intervene when ‘permission’ denied
    on 13 January 2013 at 5:17 pm

    Looks like a right balls up, two bridges to cross the Lagan, both roads running past Short Strand – block one way and hey presto the protestors go the other.
    That leaves them with no loyalist marshals going past the lightly policed end, few cops, no shinner marshals – trouble
    The wee hood from the Short Strand has used up his ma’s recycling for the week, but where did the loyalists get a railway sleeper from? Must say that’s a new one on me.

    Few words here on the bus, hijacked on the Doagh Road everyone put off, burnt out in Rathfern.

    The sectarian muck coming from people is a disgrace, from their own open Facebook accounts, full name, photos, where they work etc
    This place is mad

  10. Comment on [Corrected] over half of southerners think restriction of Union flag in Belfast was wrong…
    on 10 January 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Cheers JR, great survey

    1. The increase in support for Fianna Fail – thought they had been put to the sword

    2. Nobody knows what they want from the new abortion act

    3. RTE coverage has been sympathetic towards the flag issue. The feel good factor from the Queens visit is still strong
