    What is it with this place? The man has made, what is on the face of it, a gesture aimed at attempting to reconcile a bit the community there, and before 7 people have replied the 'whataboutery' has begun. I mean, FFS

    The Provos' political wing is in government but the PUP and UDP, both of which were aligned to Loyalist terrorists, didn't stand a chance in the elections. This shows that the majority of the Unionist community has no time for Loyalist terrorists.


    Why on Earth would they vote PUP/UDP when they have more extreme parties like DUP/UUP/TUV ?

    I didn't ask what about anything. I pointed out that. Willie sees this as part of a larger 'political?' project, not simply about those who lost their lives at Kingsmills as was being portrayed by a UUP MLA on talkback yesterday. I doubt Willie would shake hands with members of the Reavey family as he takes the disgraceful Ian Paisley stand on that family. Fair play to the Pastor, though, but he should have a word with Our Wullie, as Gweedo said yesterday, he thinks he's part of the Arab Spring!

    I wasn't referring to you viva, apologies if you saw it that way. I'm as chary of Frazer as you are, but this pastor seems to be cut from a different cloth. Frazer is a dinosaur and he's been passed out by history, perhaps being around this pastor and a few others like him he might come to change his worldview, doubtful as that seems.

    At least the DUP/UUP and TUV dont have the blood of the innocents on their hands like Sinn Fein do.

    To be honest they were the biggest cheerleaders for the actions of the RUC, UDR, British Army and even the B-Specials when they were inflicting death and destruction on Nationalists. I'll not need to mention Unionists and Loyalist paramilitaries.

    A little bit of objectivity now and then wouldn't go amiss.

    Yeah legitimate forces of law and order are not terrorists though. Its important you learn the difference in the two. The IRA were terrorists, some members of SF were actively involved in their campaign, some even had dual SF/IRA membership.

    This is a positive thing and is a good step forwards. Correct me if I'm wrong but is the general consensus on here that a victims group can only be a victims group if it campaigns on the behalf of all victims of the conflict?

    How do you know?

    Many folk, including many political pundits would say they had, given their inflamatory speeches down the years and right up to the present.
