“My idea of a good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person”

Keith gets in first with a great blog taking the piss out of Ian Parsley’s sudden fondness for being pictured standing in front of stuff.

The facebook series titled “Out and About” sees the former promising Alliance upstart stand, dare I say it, UNCUNFortably, at some of the North Down issue key battlegrounds, including the Bangor fountain “I say NO, NO, NO, to the needless waste of fairy washing up liquid in this fine seaside water feature.”, Donaghadee Harbour and the above pictured temporary carpark. Talk about drawing battle-lines.

    He does look very uncomfortable. Camera shy? Borrowed suit?

  • He looks very chubby never mind uncomfortable.

    Right who left Mc Gregor in charge?

    There are far too many people profiting from taking the piss out of Ni Politics (about 108 = civil servants at last count) without Mc Gregor adding to the whole sorry charade.

    PT,

    Elections inevitable through up slightly ridiculous moments and that series of photographs is slightly ridiculous. Noting them is all part of the game.

  • joeCanuck

    through up, threw up, or throw up?

  • West Sider

    Who the flock is Ian Parsley? I only came in here cos I thought it was Ian Paisley.

    If he’s a Norn Iron Conservative he deserves our spit, or to have his balls mangled in a print press rather tahn his press releases.

    F**** him, then.

    He looks funny and sounds creepy, is that the best that can do?

  • Keithbelfast

    what on earth are you going on about west sider.

  • Mark McGregor

    Joe,

    Apologies and me a Grammer School boy too ;0)

  • Drumlins Rock

    here mark, saying your so bored, can you tell us how many “non mainstream” republicans are likely to stand? and who and where.

  • Mark McGregor

    DR,

    I doubt any will stand beyond council level for the foreseeable given the absolute drubbing they received everywhere but Derry in the last Stormont election.

  • Pigeon Toes

    Mark
    I know, and I laughed like a donkey (poor ould Mr PT)

    But ye are in for the wooden spoon boy..

  • Mark McGregor

    DR,

    Though in my view it’d be wise, ahead of council elections, for the following republican dissenters to run in constituencies and start building a register:

    Derry – IRSP/32CSM
    West Belfast – éirígí
    North Belfast – IRSP/RNU
    FST – éirígí/32CSM
    East Tyrone – 32CSM
    Upper Bann – éirígí
    Newry & Armagh – 32CSM
    Mid Ulster – independent republican

  • Drumlins Rock

    mark, did you know the “Green Party” were polling up to 15% in parts of Fermanagh in the Euros, I didnt think they were that enviromental out there lol.

    Back on message.

    IJP looks very strange and he really needs to get a better fitting suit. Can’t believe I campaingned for him only for him to waltz over and cosy up to Fred Empy and Dave Snooty.

  • lamhdearg

    He is a horse’s ass, he would fit in with the rest of them, He like the others, Won’t secure my job, Won’t educate my child,Wont help me if i am ill, Will cost me in tax, Cromwell had it right when he said “…It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches,

    “Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?’ Gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

    Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d; your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse the Augean Stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings, and which by God’s help and the strength He has given me, I now come to do.

    “I command ye, therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. You have sat here too long for the good you do. In the name of God, go!”

  • Michaelhenry

    cromwell sold out,he killed the king then years latter wanted to become the king,lamhderg,know your history.

  • iluvni

    Has Anthony Gormley been commissioned to do IJP’s everywhere?

  • lamhdearg

    Cromwell like us all had faults, He also did all the people (of the british isles)a service when he first curbed the power of kings and then the power’s of an unwanted parliament, we all know absolute power corrupts, I for one think we have to many people telling us what to do and not enough people doing what needs to be done.

  • Michaelhenry

    cromwell sold out every roundhead soldier who fought and died for him,you know this lamhdearg,every body knows this.

  • lamhdearg

    “I for one think we have to many people telling us what to do and not enough people doing what needs to be done”. This is the point i am trying to make ian parsley is like the rest of the tubes that sit in goverment a waste of tax payers money. Do we need so many?.

  • Michaelhenry

  • lamhdearg

    Back on Cromwell do you think his tenure improved things for people living today?.

  • lamhdearg

    Please dont take umbridge if i do not reply to any posts after this tonight, I am off to bed, good night.

  • Michaelhenry

  • lamhdearg

    Michaelhenry

  • Michaelhenry

    you never answerd my question on why cromwell sold out lamhdearg,but i will answer yours,the only reason people are better of today is because cromwell is long dead.

  • YelloSmurf

    Parsley needs some new photos; so far as I know, a number of them had to be removed from his blo because the Alliance Party still owned the copyright.

  • YelloSmurf

    That’s “blog” not “blo”. I need to take more care (and proof-read) when I type.

  • sdelaneys

    19 “I doubt any will stand beyond council level for the foreseeable given the absolute drubbing they received everywhere but Derry in the last Stormont election.” Mark…

    Mark, don’t remember the figures but I do believe that Hyland in Newry and Armagh done best of the non party republicans.

  • YelloSmurf

    I was wondering what Cromwell had to do with a post about IJP, then I read

    “cromwell sold out every roundhead soldier who fought and died for him”.

  • lamhdearg

    15.”you never answerd my question on why cromwell sold out lamhdearg”, Please point me to where you asked ANY question of me.”the only reason people are better of today is because cromwell is long dead”. Michael would you prefer to have an absolute monarchy.

  • IJP

    To think, I gave the fecker a lift to the Alliance Conference dinner on Friday evening past…
