    Dig the cool Americanese, Daddio. What ‘stuff’ do the McCartney sisters need to know apart from the fact that their ‘bro’ got into a bar-room brawl and was killed. Guilty parties tried to cover their tracks. End of story. As for the remark about the murderers in government,well, that’s fairly run of the mill holier than thou Stoop Down Losers Party that Mr Gould regurgitates ad nauseum.

    Charles, what you really mean is that the SDLP have bowed to pressure from the klingon community and rolled over to show how really amenable they are to reasoned argument. And Pete, I was born in Co Tyrone in Ireland so Michael D must be my President as he is to all SDLP members – isn’t he?

    No, Mick, just updated my e-mail and gravatar disappeared so I went to gravatar page, re-chose my original gravatar, synchronised it with my new e-mail, clicked ‘select’ and lo and behold – rien. Life is stressful enough – as I’m sure you’ll agree – without tussling with hitech at my time of day.

    Very astute, Reader. I could be a banker and call myself honest. All subjective. I also realise that to carry a principle to extreme is a form of mental disorder and to have no principles is also undesirable. Who rules where the dividing line is? Some smartass posting on a blog?

    Six counties may be under British control but there is no doubt it is Irish soil peopled to some extent by British klingons.
