Young Unionists blogging!

Congratatualtions to the Young Unionists for putting together Ireland’s first genuinely party political blog. It’s young yet, but they seem to have got the blogging idea! Short, witty, and to the point!

    Young Unionists seem quite dynamic. There’s a story about them on page 3 Irish News – with a reply by OSF – in respect of the Mural issue. Where are Young DUP ? Is there a young DUP beyond Ian Paisley Jnr ?

    Eeeek!

    Some of the members of the Democratic unionist association (DUA) at queens are actually dead on. Some will actually stop and chew the fat.

    The same is also true of the YU but they aren’t as hostile as some of the DUA.

    cg, do you go around holding doors open for them and try to trick them into shaking you hand?

  • Mark McGregor

    I like it an excellent blog. Wonder if its a team effort? Or should ‘The Editor’ add their name to get the credit they deserve.

    “cg, do you go around holding doors open for them and try to trick them into shaking you hand?”

    LOL, no I don’t think so.

    They are slightly more hostile towards me than other members of the cumann; I must be the Hawk of the cumann 😉

  • Chucky R. Law

    Who is the “Editor”? Is he/she the official spokesperson for the party or …?

  • Roger W. Christ XVII

    Young DUP talking to republicans ? What will happen when the Dear Leader finds out ?

    I tried to tell Stalford this when he was attacking Rebecca for having a beer with republicans. He refused to accept this

    The DUA has changed somewhat in his absence.

    The DUA don’t like Sinn Féin but a lot of them can see we are also human beings and treat us with respect as we do with them.

    It doesn’t effect a person’s beliefs to be civil.

  • Davros

    we are also human beings

    You very nearly owed me a keyboard for that one LOL
    I’ll let IJP adjudicate as to whether both or either of you are …..

    “we are also human beings”

    I hope that was a joke or are you finally admitting you are a Unionist 😉

  • Davros

    This is war Prescott ! 😉

    Bring it on Ian!! 😉

    “I tried to tell Stalford this when he was attacking Rebecca for having a beer with republicans. He refused to accept this”

    hmm, the argument on slugger was part of a longer feud on this issue which started at an inter isles forum when Stalford told me I was low and pathetic for socialising with republicans in front a room full of delegates from Fine Gael, Fianne Fail, Irish Labour, PDs, and mant others.

    I think its more of a reflection on him than me.

  • queens_unionist

    mmm

    Rebecca what is the point of posting under two different names?

  • Rebecca Black

    so nobody can sue me.

  • Peter Brown

    Is it not the whole point of TypeKey that you can be traced anyway?

  • maca

    “so nobody can sue me.”

    The only way to avoid that is to not say anything libelous 😉

  • davidbrew

    On behalf of mr Brown and my other colleagues I resent Rebecca’s attempt to deprive us of our livelihood. Fortunately by admiting she is unionist-observer ( a shock to us all, I’m sure) we can still sue her if necessary-Doh!

  • Rebecca Black

    sometimes you lot are extremelly infuriating!!

    Bloody lawyers, however I shall return to my pseudonom and try to not say anything libelous.

  • Michael Shilliday

    yes….return to your clever disguise and we’ll all see if we can guess.

  • Mick Fealty

    Peter,

    No, it’s more of an effective weapon in the war against comment spam.
