    You are an obsessive loon.


    Sadly, you are probably not self aware enough to see that you have a problem.

    Why would SF be so agitated about British taxpayers being ripped off by Arlene? It did seem all a bit contrived.

    Did you miss the part where the UK exchequer refused to cover it and told them it had to be taken out of NI's budget?

    Never knew the shinners even had a translated version of their slogan, thanks to the late Amy Winehouse :

    On a side note… a DUP councillor with an amusing surname given the subject.

    DUP councillor Billy Ashe said he was not aware of "any concerns" regarding the bonfire.

    Next Thursday marks the 20th anniversary of the final IRA Ceasefire back in 1997 that paved the way for the Good Friday Agreement that is the foundation block on which the current Peace Process is built

    Yet today the wind sweeps through the hallowed halls of Stormont

    - as the Honourable Members have not been seen in months.....

    We all know that it was Martin McGuinness who pulled the plug over somewhat spurious reasons and even since his death it is obvious that there is no real stomach within the Party to go back in again to face more of the same from Auntie Arlene and Co.

    So what actually triggered the disillusionment with the Peace Process?

    - what was the straw that broke the camels back as they say in certain parts

    Well curious note the following

    - It was Marty showing up at a soiree to launch yet another portrait of Britain's most famous Celebrity that proved the tipping point:



    That was in November last year when McGuinness travelled to London for another Co-operation Ireland event, the unveiling of a portrait of Queen Elizabeth by the Northern Ireland artist Colin Davidson and attended by the queen. At the time it was viewed by many republicans as one grand gesture too many because these acts of generosity were viewed as not being reciprocated by Arlene Foster and the DUP. It was the start of the slide towards McGuinness walking away from the Northern Executive

    McGuinness gave Sheridan some gyp about that engagement. “I met him next day in Stormont. He gave off to me about it because he got a lot of grief from his own people,” Sheridan recalls.

    Sheridan told him that other leaders from the North and the Republic had also attended the event and that if McGuinness wasn’t in attendance what would people have said. Still, he understands that thereafter, between the political pressures and his illness, McGuinness “began to feel it was getting away from him”.


    IRA ceasefire 20 years on: 'I walked away. Then the car exploded'

    That woman's Trouble!

    But lets hope there are no more 'Troubles'!


    "At the time it was viewed by many republicans as one grand gesture too many"?

    The poor lambs. And Shinners have a cheek to describe themselves as republicans any longer.

    Why can't the Shinners act like normal human beings for once, and stop pretending to be offended all of the time? Adams and McGuinness have met with members of the royal family before, so what was so bad about this specific occasion?

    Was it the fact that despite all of their promises about short-term victory, Adams and McGuinness have not delivered on their pre-peace process promises, and the great unwashed are fed up seeing Adams and McGuinness attend events like this one - events that show that they are helping run British administration in NI?
