Adams sounds like a partitionist

Daivd Trimble has unequivocally backed Michael Copeland, the MLA at the centre of some controversy on Friday when his office was raided as part of an investiation into money laundering. He has also lodged a complaint with the Police Ombudsman, over the handling of the searches, which came on the Friday before the party’s manifesto was due to be launched. It will launch tomorrow.

    Easy call for Trimble as he’s unlikely to be around when and if any charges are made.

    Pardon me for asking but what does the headline on this have to do with the post? Is it perhaps because any post with Adams in the headline attracts more replies than those who focus on the less popular politicians among the anti republican brigade?

    Or maybe the 2 stories got mixed up?

  • Two Nations

    Beano talk a bit of sense! It’s clearly a securocrat conspriracy designed to derail the election success of SF. Fealty is clearly a well-oiled wheel in the British misinformation machine.

    You’re so naive beano.

    THe only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.

    Any truth to the rumour that the reason why the UUP manifesto launch has been put back is because they’re beleagured candidate for Castlereagh Central appears on the pages pertaining to crime and policing?
