Interview with the life president of Perversional Sinn Fein…

Newt’s clearly been taking note of the bad comedy that’s been Gerry Adams explanation of his actions (or rather inactions) viz a viz his brother Liam… Sharp satire as a valuable political critique… Given the jumping about mapped in the timeline, not to mention the strangulation of meaning in the English language involved:

Q: Were any internal disciplinary measures taken?

A: I may have moved to dump some members out of the party, which can mean moving them to a dump like Dundalk to help run the party. Other members may have been suspended without notice, which can mean suspending them without notifying anyone. I refute the suggestion that this contradicts any of my previous suggestions.

Q: Do you know the difference between refuting and denying?

A: I both refute and deny not knowing the difference between refuting and denying.

    Its a securocrat conspiracy to enforce temporal linearity on the people of west Belfast. SF are committed to 32 county holistic chronology for all.

  • wild turkey

    this ‘interview’, in combination with irisgate, is reason enuf to bring back spitting images for a one off special.

    anyone making book on whether Newt and/or the Irish Times is whacked with the threat of legal action?

    Wasn’t Ian Paisley connected to William Mc Grath, also connected to loyalist paramilataries and British intelligence, who was convicted for abusing children,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kincora_Boys'_Home

    Dr Ian Paisley, leader of the DUP and moderator of the Free Presbyterian Church, was accused of failing to report the fact of McGrath’s homosexuality to the relevant authorities although he denied ever being advised by his informant, a church member, Miss Valerie Shaw, that McGrath worked in a boys’ home.

    Its you who needs connected to a time machine for your memory lapse, and while you’re there look up the missing child Mc Dermott I believe his name was, abused and murdered by people connected to loyalist paramilataries, who were connected to Ian Paisley, through his church and his party.

    tacapall ,

    The focus is on Adams and Paisley/Mrs Robinson and their ‘failings’ simply because of their political prominence .Likewise with the Bishop of Galway and several other high ranking clerics re the ‘ability’ of the Church to ‘hide’ their closet skeletons .

    Far more inmportant is the question of why hundreds of thousands of ‘middle class ‘ and educated Irish and British North and South of the border kept their mouths shut and their eyes averted and did and SAID nothing for decades ?

    Adams/Robinson/Paisley/Casey etc etc etc etc etc etc are just the icons for the ‘nod’ and a ‘wink’ society that hears no evil , speaks no evil and sees no evil because that societypaid them not or to be more accurate it paid not to see anything !

    Anyway shure twas only the children and women folk of the poor that were getting beaten up or molested . And who ever cared about them ?

    “Far more important is the question of why hundreds of thousands of ‘middle class ’ and educated Irish and British North and South of the border kept their mouths shut and their eyes averted and did and SAID nothing for decades ?”

    could you clarify who you mean? Genuinely not sure.

    Tacapall

    You say “the missing child Mc Dermott I believe his name was, abused and murdered by people connected to loyalist paramilataries, who were connected to Ian Paisley, through his church and his party.”

    Actually Brian’s body was found and the police latterly arrested his own brother whose wife alleged he had admitted to the murder so don’t felon set where the facts are otherwise.

  • Comrade Stalin

    Weren’t the people involved in the Kincora thing caught and prosecuted ?

  • Jimmy_Sands

    There seem to be a lot of chuckies taking an interest in Kincora this past week or so. Has something happened?

    “ They (McGrath and McKeague) remained friends because of their perverse interest in young boys, and their joint role in systematic abuse of young men in an East Belfast Hostel run by McGrath. The RUC suspected McKeague of involvement of the unsolved murder of a ten year old Protestant boy, Brian McDermott, who’s charred and dismembered body, was found on the banks of the River Lagan in Belfast …A British Intelligence file later identified McKeague as his abductor and murderer ”.
    The results of the official police investigations into the Kincora Scandal are “Sealed” to this day because of the influence of certain UK political heavy-weights!

    Comrade maybe some of them were prosecuted, but the people with power and influence walked away free to this day

  • wild turkey

    ‘Comrade maybe some of them were prosecuted, but the people with power and influence walked away free to this day’

    ah right, so if THEIR people with power and influence walked away free then OUR people with power and influence should walk away free… and two wrongs make a reich. got it…and two wrongs make a reich. FFS

    Your quote is unsourced and therefore simply assrtion.

    If there was evidence that McKeague had misbehaved in Kincora he would have been charged like McGrath.

    Chris Moore : The Kincora Scandal , Political Cover-up And Intrigue In Northern Ireland

    Come on framer theres loads of evidence about “Agents” getting away with Murder and every other crime known to man.

  • Has GA read the Newton Emerson piece in the Irish Times? He was crying into his cornflakes on Radio Ulster this morning, ” .. the way I have been pilloried is disgraceful”.

    Would great terrorist leaders of the past been reduced to such a slobbering state? MMcG’s failure to stand by his man in his hour of need must have been particularly galling. Perhaps the British 40-year Long Service Medal will provide some consolation.

    There was mention of the Sinn Fein Officer Board. Is this a new name for the legitimate government of Ireland, the Army Council, or is it a lesser body?

  • Framer

    You’ve now moved on to wholesale assertion tacapall about murder here of which there were over 3,000.

    There was however a public enquiry into Kincora which produced no evidence of the much-loved tabloid concept of ‘a paedophile ring’. Nor to my knowledge was McKeague mentioned.

    If McGrath was a protected agent why was he jailed?
