  1. Comment on Thoughts on the Flag protests

    A thought that may have already been expressed elsewhere:

    Given that it seems perfectly legit to block roads (if not rioting), and thereby preventing large groups of people (maybe half of them drawn from ‘The People’) from going about their traditional routes (daily commute or weekly shop) along the Queen’s Highway – what could this mean for the marching season, if some groups decide to block the roads being used by marching bands (who may form a significant percentage of the present road=blockers)?

    ‘I might say something on funding Nationalist cultural endeavors, or the Irish language but lets pick one that doesn’t cost money. Union Jack 364 days a year, tricolour alongside St Pats. Or if a little weak, duration of Feile’

    Surely, for the one day, as a compromise (from where we are now), the tricolour solo might be accepted. And what a day! Now, we’d only have to convince the 15-year olds and racists flying in from England (the non-voting guardians of NI democracy apparently) to back it and we’d have the roads free again.

  3. Comment on Willie calls off the Dublin protest…

    Oh, Willie, you’re depriving us of what would’ve been a great piece of street theatre – much needed in these austere times.

    Perhaps his head is hurting trying to figure out what happened at the Kasmiri border yesterday?

    We get it, the democrats had it coming for passing the motion (to align flag policy with other cities in the UK).

    Any ideas on how to (and who will) communicate to the slow learners with violent tendencies to accept that the fleg will fly at the same times as similar UK cities?
