    Default "Kilwilke" due an apology ?

    John O'Dowd has called for an apology from the BBC for supposedly misrepresenting the people of "Kilwilke" (sic) .....

    These would be the same young people who riot at the drop of a hat and who tried to murder people on that train.

    Who have no time for dissidents and love Sinn Féin ....

    It seems he has a point.

    Why did they interview someone from outside the area?

    Same reason as Brendan McKenna was often interviewed about the Garvaghy Road ?
    But then that was OK when Brendan was in Sinn Féin and was saying what they wanted the world to hear.

    Thats hardly the same. He was their selected spokesperson.

    Allegedly.

    And doubtless, judging by the support for the dissidents, hatred for the police and regular rioting the dissident was the Kilwilke (sic) residents selection .....

    riot at the drop of a hat is a gross exageration..

    tried to murder people is agross exageration..

    in the 2007 Northern Ireland Assembly election dissident republicans stood in several constituencies. One of those was Upper Bann, the constituency in which the town of Lurgan lies.
    The candidate chosen to run for the rejectionists was Barry Toman, himself a Lurgan native and member of the Continuity IRA-aligned Republican Sinn Fein. His performance was utterly pathetic. A mere 386 first preference votes were cast in his favour. John O'Dowd of Sinn Fein topped the poll with 7,733 first preference votes while his running mate Dessie Ward also pulled in an impressive 3,118. Elsewhere in the nationalist camp Dolores Kelly, the main SDLP rep for the area, got elected to Stormont with 4,689 first preference votes. But for Mr Toman and his dissident allies a paltry 386 was all that could be mustered. Hardly the numbers one would attribute to an organisation operating in their "stronghold."

    Really - so multiple attempts to derail trains doesn't count ?

    Or that business of trying to burn people alive on the train earlier this year doesn't count ?


    I'll bet many of those 386 votes came from Kilwilkie

    What about the people in Kilwilke who came out to help remove the graffiti and have risked their lives trying to stop the riots in the area?

    The people living in Kilwilke are those who are under attack and are suffering the most.
    They are also doing a hell of a lot more than the PSNI or any Unionist to stop it.
    It's a disadvantaged working class neighbourhood that attracts yobo's and hoodlems, most people living there not only hate these scumbags but actively help to clean the area up and stop them wrecking the place.

    Yet again you find the worst people you can and use them as your paint to colour everyone with.

    Ignoramus.

    I would really hope the majority of the residents of this estate would have no time for the actions mentioned on this thread.

    Its like any working class estate in NI. Judging by the murals, spray paintings etc you could easily assume all of the residents were buck mad but if you scratch the surface you always find a majority who just want to live in peace.

    Yes this estate certainly has a problem and it certainly has many dissident sympathisers but i have no doubt it has as many if not more who deplore such actions.

    multiple?....

    the little pr!cks set fire to the train...where is your evidence of intent to murder?..

    and can you prove that any of the 386 votes came from kilwilkie...

    if we all post stuff on what we think is true and lace our statements with unfounded unprovable accusations then lets go all out and see just how outlandish we can be...

    you start....

    oh wait...you've went already....
