DUP man’s sectarian attacker faces jail…

THE BBC reports that a man has been found guilty of assaulting the DUP East Antrim MP Sammy Wilson in Belfast. The magistrate said because of aggravating factors – including the “element of hatred involved”” – there was a possibility that O’Kane, who has no criminal record, could go to prison. I bet no-one thought that when Hate Crime legislation was introduced in 2004 that the DUP would be the first party to benefit!

    “This is a Catholic area. Get out of here.”

    Good reasoning. heavy sarcasm

    And it isn’t even a Catholic area; Botanic is very mixed.

    I presume Sammy was fully clothed at the time?

  • Belfast Gonzo

    Yes, although the court heard the naked truth.

    Hi all,

    I’m not a fan of Sammy wilson or the dup but he did more than Martin McGuiness did when Martin McGuiness’s car was attacked. At least Sammy Wilson pursued the attack in court rather than martin mcguiness who never did anything when he car was attacked.


    I think it’s fair to say that the only bollox on display was the one found guilty.

    Let’s be honest, would you wrestle a naked Sammy Wilson?
    Whats with Sammy Wilsons moustache?, if I had a nose like that, I wouldn’t want to underline it.
