Hostages to fortune…

JUSTICE campaigner Raymond McCord has been told by the police that his life is under threat from the UVF (the second death threat from the UVF linked to McCord this month). McCord’s campaign has been strongly supported by Ulster Unionist MP Lady Sylvia Hermon, whose party, coincidentally, has the UVF’s political wing in its Assembly group. I’d love to know how she feels about this. The UUP was supposed to be in there stopping this kind of thing, yet neither it nor the PUP seem able to do so.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
