  1. Comment on Sinn Féin to the fore for the photo, to the rear of the movement
    on 12 April 2014 at 11:01 pm

    Just watched youtube video of today’s protest and Sinn fein people nowhere near the front? Confused?

    After reading your last comment, my first thought was Iraq & Afghanistan.

    Seem to recall Gavin Robinson saying on a TV interview that he’d never been in the short strand.

    Seriously though, if Alex can’t remember important issues from meetings, how can he trusted to find his way to the European Parliament ?

  5. Comment on #ShinnersList: “I have never heard an explanation as to why Operation Rapid as a term, was never made clear to the board.”

    Still trying to work out why politicians didn’t question/query Gerry Kelly on the Downey letter when he talked about it openly to news outlets early last year?

  6. Comment on Pat Magee & Jo Berry: Listening to Your Enemies Means Asking Hard Questions

    Hard to see how ‘Taigs out’ painted in big black letters isn’t sectarian.

  7. Comment on Our wee culture….any chance we could stop losing money from it?
    on 3 September 2013 at 11:56 pm

    Another disaster for traders who opened on the 12th..

    Can understand why most won’t bother opening next year.

    Most cafes & bars don’t want the hassle of sectarian drunks on their City Centre premises.

  8. Comment on Housing Equality Shouldn’t Have To Wait
    on 27 August 2013 at 6:36 pm


    Had a quick look at HE rules online and it states that ‘a ratio of one transfer allocation for every two Waiting List allocations should be employed’.

    ‘the total benefit of any Transfer (or a series of Transfers) should be greater than if a dwelling were to be allocated to a new Applicant.’

    So obviously HE rules can deem a transfer candidate more in need than someone on the waiting list.

    That was my point regarding a transfer tenant moving to a smaller property thus freeing up space.

  9. Comment on Housing Equality Shouldn’t Have To Wait

    Seems that the Judge’s decision has stalled HE transfers all over NI according to today’s paper.

    Was chatting with HE person in pub on Saturday night & he said it was normal for bulk allocations to be a mixture of transfers and those from waiting list.

    If someone was transferring from 3 bedroom to 2 bedroom, surely that is creating extra space?

  10. Comment on Loyalist terrorists and this summer’s mayhem
    on 20 August 2013 at 11:21 pm

    The band that led Belfast District No 6 in the east Belfast Orange Order Somme parade on the 1st of July this year was also led by a uniformed UVF colour party at a parade commemorating an east Belfast UVF commander less than a month before. (as per clip)

    So understandable that people make a connection between the two.
