    All written from a unionist mindset, if you wish to get rid of sectarian politics you will have to get rid of the sectarian border

  2. Comment on Educational Underachievement-Part 1: Are Protestants getting left behind in education? The statistically based answer is an emphatic ‘No’
    on 15 April 2014 at 12:19 am

    Has anyone considered that champions breed champions and thus thick people breed thick people? There goes the politically correct vote.

  4. Comment on Sinn Fein’s Demographic war for constitutional change is useless without middle class

    I agree gingray – nationalism has to do nothing, let the english pay for their colony, we can sit back and await the end while all the time continue to reflect the growing nationalist representation in the civil sphere, perhaps rename great victoria street to Padraig Pearse Street? eventually one vote will bring the edifice built on the sand of sectarianism down. It will be fun watching this.

    Alliance in Larne council depends on nationalists voting for them as the least worst option, in Ballymena there are alternatives so my answer would be no, and also expect Sinn Fein to get a gunk in the Glens before the day is out

  8. Comment on And meanwhile in Larne, the UDA enforces its imaginary paramilitary writ…

    As far as I am concerned the police have a lot of explaining to do. These gangsters, for that is what they are, drug dealing gangsters, are in dispute with other drug dealing gangsters and add in some of them getting a retaliatory hiding plus police acquiescence to them is a recipe for this.

    The police facilitate gangsterism in Larne. They don’t give a damn. And haven’t for a long time.
    East Antrim policing has notable high points which include escorting the same mobsters to a house as they wanted to protest (not intimidate or anything like that, outside it an apologising for removing provocative flags. allowing pubs to be told not to serve catholics, (this is a laugh considering who was doing the threatening).

    Tell you what though, if you want a nice chill just get your windows washed in Larne. It always pays to see who is coming up the road – if you know what I mean.

  9. Comment on NI21 issue open call for council candidates: fresh politics or desperate measures?
    on 31 March 2014 at 12:26 pm

    Sounds like desperation – why would anyone want to stand for them now, why would anyone want to vote for them now, dragging them in from the streets ?
