    Wait, in his police interview tapes he categorically denied any involvement in the protests, then at this public meeting says the opposite? Hmmm, playing with fire in a police interview…

  2. Comment on The inequalities of same sex marriage
    on 25 February 2013 at 11:46 am

    Harry, PaddyReilly made a point which I have to agree with.

    “The proper function of government is to regulate what is already happening, and not attempt to issue rules which will not be obeyed. As certain men have decided that they want to marry other men, and certain women other women, then a democratic government has no choice but to capitulate to this state of affairs.

    “Men who want to marry dogs, or rocks, or their sisters, have not yet sufficiently organised themselves into a viable constituency which can make such demands.”

    ArdoyneUnionist: “Maybe Blue Hammer can confirm, do the Linfield fans going to Solitude RV at Ballysillan Leisure centre and get bussed down and back from Solitude???”

    Yes, they get given their tickets at Ballysillan just before the game.

    It would be a crying shame if the N Belfast derby was reduced to mandatory bussing – Solitude and Seaview are only seperated by 3 roads!

    One of the most frustrating things about what happened on Saturday was seeing the genuine efforts of the two clubs to sort this issue in partnership completely gazumped by people keen to do nothing but disrupt and divide.

    From Cliftonville FC before the game:

    “- Free buses will be provided to transport Cliftonville supporters not travelling by car or public transport and we would encourage fans to avail of this facility. One bus will leave from Cliftonville Street and the other from the Limestone Road/ Antrim Road junction. Both will depart at 2.15pm.”

    - In the event that any supporter or group of supporters wish to walk the game, there will be a single stewarded ‘walk down’ leaving from the top of Glandore Avenue at 2.15pm, when a group of Crusaders supporters in club colours will walk, in sport and in friendship, with their Cliftonville counterparts”

    - The Club would ask that those travelling by car observe the parking restrictions in operation at the bottom of Skegoneill Avenue.”

    And from Crusaders after the postponment:

    “Crusaders Football Club would like to thank the local residents of Skegoniel Avenue for the considerable engagement that has taken place since November to manage this match. We are disappointed that these efforts have been undermined. Together with Cliftonville Football Club, the IFA and PSNI a further statement will be issued in due course.”

  5. Comment on For Unionists Only: What would you relish in a United Ireland?
    on 18 April 2012 at 10:03 pm

    Not a nationalist, nor a unionist, but given opportunity to imagine living in a united Ireland…

    I would relish some of the things we’d get rid of. The monarchy, conservative party, the BNP, having to watch Wimbledon, attempting to explain the subtly of the border to Americans and being expected to sing God Save The Queen at football matches.

    And on the subject of football, it would be nice to have a bigger more competitive Irish league and the opportunity of following an international side which has a chance of qualifying for bigger competitions.

    But most of the things I love about the South are pretty much available to me now already.

  6. Comment on Is Northern Ireland’s government funded tail wagging the media dog?

    Ah. Sorry, didn’t realise it was a home recording Mick.

    You can link to a timestamp in iplayer, but you wouldn’t have been able to embed then. So nope, no idea.

    Also, was that really out of focus or do I need to make another trip to Boots opticians?

  8. Comment on A dark day for Glasgow Celtic
    on 13 February 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Bayern Munich came to the aid of rivals Dortmund several years ago. Maybe the SPL’s green right arm, could help the blue left arm out of a pickle…
