Not a good week for paramilitaries

Lindy McDowell doesn’t pull her punches. Today she roundhouses the Loyalist Commission for commending the UDA for officially giving up extortion.

    “The UDA realises extortion just isn’t on any longer…”

    Says it all!

    Refers only to local extortion so I suppose they can swap territories and it would be all right?

    You also have to wonder what this strange brotherhood consider to be ON.

    Need these and similar behind bars ASAP. They are criminals plain and simple.

    So ther orgnaisation doesnt do it..what about individuals within the organisation? Bet ya they don’t count.

    Was at a substance misuse ‘occasion’ in London today and got chatting to a drugs worker from Scotland who mentioned that a gentleman, formerly of the Sh*nkill Road and the UDA and who would be recognised by all bloggers of this site,namely a Mr J*hn Ad*ir, is well known to be running the whole shop (drugswise) in Paisley in Scotland. Has anyone else heard any whispers of this or is it not considered relevant since he has left the parish and is no longer a thorn in the side of concerned locals in his old manor? Or will this enquiry be considered to be a litigious hot potato and be edited accordingly?

    Pring, surely that is less of a whisper than an accusation.

  • P Ring

    to missfitz:
    It’s sweet of you to be so concerned on behalf of M*d D*g.
    It was a whispered accusation. And, from my perspective, it was whispered with a strong degree of credible authority.

    Few here would be surprised at the accusations and few would loose any sleep if such people were convicted and put away for a very long time.

    PS I think missfitz was concerned for you and not the alleged criminal. I also advise caution on accusations.

    P Ring,
    Johnny Adair is an example of a criminal, not a loyalist, who (thankfully) has no longer any links to the Association…
