I think it's obviously hypocritical and/or stupid of you to wave these bloody shirts around on Good Friday and act like you're doing it for anything
other than jingoistic loyalist grandstanding.
I assure you there's nothing hypocritical or stupid about my intentions at all - the sole intention is to highlight the brutal killings of two people,
the amazing act of courage and bravery by a Catholic priest, the effect these killings had on a woman and her family and the refusal of the British
government to release all the details relating to these murders.
There is nothing jingoistic about my intent and to accuse me of 'loyalist grandstanding' is ridiculous and so wide of the mark.
I was as disgusted with the killings carried out by Michael Stone as I was by these murders.
And you know what, here's something you need to accept: the protestants are losing Northern Ireland in no more than a few decades, by entirely
The key words there are peaceful means
They won't even hang on to SCOTLAND
Well that's for the people of Scotland to decide - if you want to discuss the possible outcome of the referendum take it to one of the relevant
threads and I'll gladly discuss that with you there.
and you are trying to stir crap up about Northern Ireland of all places.
Please show me exactly how I'm trying to 'stir up' anything.
It is impossible just to wipe clean the slate after so many years of atrocities being committed by BOTH
Do you honestly want to just ignore what happened and bury your head in the sand?
Or perhaps you just want to discuss things that fit in with your personal viewpoint and perspective?
The nationalist community quite rightly demanded to know the full details behind the Bloody Sunday killings - how is this any different?
Were their demands attempts to stir up trouble?
The Irish now just have to sit back and watch the UK fade while their birth rate continues to peacefully re-take their own country.
If that is the natural course of things then so be it.
And if the majority of people in Northern Ireland ever decide they wish to be an independant state or to join The Republic then again, so be it, as
long as it's done by peaceful means and due process and I would offer them my wholehearted support.
Interestingly enough, all recent polls and survey's suggest that more and more people in Northern Ireland wish to remain within the UK, including
approximately 65% of the traditionally nationalist communities.
This thread was intended to show how even during the brutal events of The Troubles a little bit of humanity shines through and how the killings
affected one woman and her family.
Have a Good Friday, jerk.
And how do you expect me to respond to that - in an equally childish manner?
Oh, and there's nothing more sinsiter about the timing other than Father Reid and Nualla Cassidy telling their respective stories recently and me only
reading them last night and I thought it may, just may, be of some interest to some people.
