  1. Comment on Why the Tories are constitutionally all at sea in Scotland
    on 6 January 2012 at 11:41 am

    Tories couldn’t care less about scotlands people
    The only interest in preserving the union is because its looks good,
    and serves grandstanding on the world stage:

    “we’re very proud of the UK, GB, blah blah blah ”

    privately it costs english taxpayers a fortune to maintain
    but Tory MP’s and shire counties folk can afford it.

    the mentality is exactly the same as with India,
    the raj, colonialism, europhobia etc
    divide and rule as diane abbot says , oops PC brigade alert !

    These posh tory bastards must be defeated , but how ?

    as long as commentator Fionnuala O’Connor,
    and historian and Irish News journalist Brian Feeney
    are around to analyse and offer wisdom we’ll be fine.

  6. Comment on Maltreating victims may condemn us to the folly of repeating the past
    on 30 December 2011 at 8:12 pm

    keano,
    “All the main parties need to address this issue
    much more diligently than has been the case up until now.

    good, and with respect when they don’t , SF or otherwise
    others will step in , like Jim allister
    But its just bad politics to moan at that,
    when the door has been left ajar.

    derrydave,
    I think it was Richard III
    “To whom much is given, much is expected”

    Ms McArdle has been given a high-powered well paid job.

    To meet with ann travers, and face the music is leadership.
    Within the proper setting, an enormous amount can be achieved,
    in terms of reconciliation and understanding.

    To face your accuser, lower yourself and take the hurt/anger is a sincere act of contrition;
    both parties feel released from their burdens.

    That’s the beauty of meeting with open hearts and minds
    A space is opened where respect and even admiration can take place ,
    but especially love

    Ann, that’s completely reasonable and essential for you.
    A good and trusted mediator is one possible avenue.

    I remember vividly watching “Facing the Truth” in 2006
    when archbishop desmond tutu brought together
    victims and perpetrators.
    couldn’t help but feel how powerful, intense yet healing and liberating that was for some.

    I’m disappointed that Ms McArdle snubbed the HET.
    the HET really ought to have powers to compel attendance.
    Ann, she should meet with you ,on agreed terms at least; if that’s what you desire.
