  1. Comment on The Glenanne story proves the time for frank admissions is overdue: further prevarication over collusion implies Briitsh government cover-up

    GEF,

    You’re following a dangerous logic.

    DC,

    Willie Frazer is working out his trauma issues through ignorant bigotry.

    Turgon,

    I suppose he did. (my name is Tomás by the way. Not Thomas.)

    Charles Gould,

    I think in O’Rawe came out the strongest in that debate.

    Apologies to Andy for staying on that tangent….however.

    Rory Carr.

    SF have been giving politically loaded speeches at commemorations for dead republicans since 98 and the legacy of the 81 HS has been a key legacy issue for SF. Its been used as a rallying base on the 25th and 30th anniversary years. In fact McGuinness at a rally on the 25th anniversary claimed that had the 10 men been alive today, he had no doubt that they would have been standing square alongside the current peace process…or something to that effect.. and no ouija board in sight. The 81 HS strike is a crucial component in how SF explain and rationalise their narrative of coming from militant anti-partitionists to constitutional nationalism.

    Charles Gould,

    I think there’s a fair deal of merit in what you and Andy say, but the inclusion of the 1981 hunger strikes is bizarre.

    Its was a self defeating move for Andy as a big chunk of the argument has now been about opinions on Sands and his legacy.

    I have read this article twice and still fail to see why Bobby Sands was used at all in the argument.

  6. Comment on Willie Frazer detained at his home this morning…
    on 27 February 2013 at 10:54 pm

    This is getting beyond satire. Is Amando Ianucci writing the script for this?

  7. Comment on Cameron’s Dunkirk?
    on 28 January 2013 at 9:07 am

    “Cameron is looking to revise EU treaties”

    I suspect that this is the heart of the matter. This isn”t really about Britain’s membership of the EU but rather its obligations to EU rights based legislation.

    I was referring to his political analysis, not his ability to wear a warm coat.
