GUEST,Brendy BS: Loyalists' Weapons - Off The Streets NOW (118* d) RE: BS: Loyalists' Weapons - Off The Streets NOW 18 Jul 05


Keith, you are a classic example of someone with absolutely no lateral thought whatsoever.

After arguing the toss as to what I meant by the comment I made, introducing that link, I can tell you that more than any 'bandwagon' or somesuch, (because I think that any violent death; especially among the working class, should be a cause for outcry), its the unevenness of it all that I object to.

I was asking a rhetorical question, incidentally Keith. Every year various people get invited to the White House on St Patrick's day, for numerous reasons; Unionist politicians included.
Generally speaking, it's a big PR affair.

.. for the President of the US, that is.

Now I'm all for big PR affairs...., as long as everyone gets a fair shot at it. I know full well there will never be a chance of the family of that other guy getting to the White House, Keith.
Not for any reason.
(Why didn't I say 'The Late Late Show', instead?)

The Progressive Unionist Party notwithstanding their incredible promises of tax breaks, better hospitals, balh blah, were they to get in the driving seat, are spending most of their time these days fighting the International Monitoring Commission which '... recommends actions of political vetting against PUP members and those in society that are merely 'suspected' of having links with the PUP, or paramilitaries.'

Now there is a party with a few skeletons (some fairly live ones at that) in it's cupboard.
And basement.
And attic.

Sinn Féin, (who have gone through most of that process by their own volition) coverups will either be proven or disproven, and all along they have asked for openness. You can tell me that intimidation may be rife, and I could ask you to prove that too.

You have regurgitated the contents of several newspapers, and a few satellite TV news channels in your last number of posts, Keith, and you've just about managed to contradict yourself on a few occasions, to boot

There is one thing you must remember here, and that is the 'wider picture'

You don't see that with a pin-hole camera, unfortunately.

Get out of that mindset you are in, Keith, and embrace the injustice served (and that still is being served) upon the Nationalist population of the North of Ireland.

Tiocfaidh said that there are only 5 million of us.
I have always been of the opinion that sectarianism divides the working classes, and the sooner we get rid of all this irrelevant stuff like hating somone solely on the basis of their religion, the better off we'll all be.

We can't get rid of that kind of reasoning til we find something else in common.
And we can't find that commonness until there is equality.

There is no equality, Keith.
In any of it....

You don't seem to understand.
