Back to the Dark Ages!
I heard the "rat that deserted the sinking ship" Jeffrey Donaldson on Radio Ulster earlier making the most ungracious, scurrilous comments about the UUP. For such a wee man, built up hells and all, he's certainly got a big gob.
But the bad news for Jeffrey is, he'll never be the leader of the DUP. All he had to do was bide his time and he was a cert for the UUP leadership. He decided to go with the money.
Why don't they have a referendum and the constituencies that want to join the ROI can, and those that don't maintain their links with the rest of the UK?
Is that too simplistic?
Fraid' so. The communities are too intermingled. Why should the two communities be made to up sticks and move all over again anyway? It's not that easy Guru.
Wasn't a good set of results really. Both the extremist parties did better. The word 'compromise' is certain to be heard much less.
True, to a certain extent. However, you could argue that if there is ever to be any concensus here, it is the extremes of both sides who must come together to achieve it. With the DUP and Sinn Fein getting the most votes, both sides may have to make compromises rather than shout at each other from the sidelines.
Jeffrey also jumped on the Chelsea bandwagon during his interview, claiming he had been celebrating their Premiership Championship and had been waiting a long time for it. The "man"'s audacity knows no bounds.
Northern Ireland, Rahl.
depressing results, however, only to be expected due to the failure of the current peace process to deliver evidence of a true and final end to violence from terorist organisations in NI.
Trimble must take a great deal of personal blame for failing to 'draw the line in the sand' during negotiations - although he was hardly helped by Blair who was willing to give anything to stop bombings on the mainland.
Still it means Sinnn Fien are going to have to produce those poleroids of the destroyed weapons if they want to sit down with the other parties in the Assembly.
Depressing results? For who? Not you, surely? I get the impression that you would be more than happy with the DUPers' results.
Depressing because Sinn Fein got 5 seats? They're no more hardline than the DUPers, in fact in a lot of ways they're moderates by comparison.
Trimble failed to draw a line in the sand? He's just as bigoted as Paisley & Co, but at least he had the savvy to determine that the only way out of the stalemate here is negotiation with Sinn Fein.
Still, his bigotry shone through in the end when he collapsed the Assembly and Executive. He only got the Nobel Peace Prize because John Hume was getting it. He is most definitely a man of peace, he was just out to feather his own nest for his retirement. Now, if the Nobel Peace Prize had been presented to John Hume and Gerry Adams, the two people that instigated peace in this country, that would have been deserved.
What is it with you, and the vast majority of unionists if the election results show a true reflection of their feeling, must see everything in militaristic terms? We are about to be hit with huge rates increases, huge water bills and our wages are the lowest in the UK while everything is more expensive and you still cannot see beyond your ridiculous, narrow-minded, bigoted and sectarian siege mentality. That's soooooooo 17th century.
Since it was Major who set the ball rolling, and the bombings here stopped while he was negotiating, how does that (as ever) make any sense? Both Major and Blair carried on with the same perspective. Since Blair aquiesed with Trimble every time he asked for the assembly to dissolved, and has gone along with Unionist assertions on the IRA involvement in numerous affairs recently, why is this pathetic "Blair loves the Republicans" nonsense still going on.......
that would be ...wrong, again...
water bills are slightly less important than freedom from being blown up and terorised - at least to the majority of the population of NI who do not welcome violence.
now, that is back to being soooo wrong its not even funny. John 'Mother Therese' Hume, was more interested in his own PR than gaining any real insight to the Unionist viewpoint, he has also failed to apologise for his significant part in stirring up sectarianism in the early days in Londonderry.
As for Gerry Adams for a Nobel Peace prize ? I will leave others to judge your sanity or levels of prejudice on that one !! absolutley hilarious bless.........

Try telling the residents of the Garvaghy Road that after he and Paisley pranced hand in hand down it after the residents were beat off the streets by their Brownshirts (or should that be light greenshirts?).
A fundamental reason why the place is in the state it's in. As I said, a ridiculous siege mentality.
So pathetic and libellous it doesn't even warrant a detailed reply.
Without Gerry Adams there would be no Peace Process, no Provisional Ceasefire. What did Tremble do to advance the cause of peace?
And you're the only one here they're laughing at.
That's soooooooo 17th century
Go and have a wee lie down, there's a good lad.
So why hasn't he tried to do this with Papa Doc and the gang? It seems he is prepared to capitulate to every demand "the big man" makes.
You see, another fundamental reason why things are as they are, there must be a militaristic solution to everything as far as unionists are concerned. The IRA will NEVER surrender and the sooner you and your ilk realise that, the sooner a final solution can be found. Like it or not, this WILL result in a unified Ireland, so get over it and move on.
So far, the IRA has made 3 significant disarmament. Loyalists have made none. Everytime the IRA has made such a move, it has been thrown back in their faces by the Unionist rottweilers
These people want nothing more than a return to war. It is their raison d'etre. Blair forced Trimble to "give concessions" to republicans, yet he takes the side of the Arch-Bigot Paisley at every turn.
It must be great to live in Chard's world, with a 3-letter alphabet.
Be nice gentlemen one thing to have a political debate but lets keep things polite.
