    Default Republican's Issue Death-threats To Two MP's

    Mr Donaldson said: "Police this morning received a serious threat to the effect that myself, my wife and children and my colleague Edwin Poots, his wife and children would be shot and the police are treating this threat very seriously."

    it is beyond belief that people would target my wife and children in this way," he said.

    Republicans targeting democratically elected Representatives and their families, can the vile ogre that is republicanism sink any lower? it's fairly oblivious these thugs didn't read the census results, perhaps someone could read it for them...

    I simply don't believe this.

    anyone else think the death threats on Dup members is just a ploy by either the British government or sinn fein to try and gain the party more support so they can continue playing happy families with sinn fein up in the big house.

    From the loyalist website "keep the fleg....................."

    All too convenient for the DUP when the troops are restless.

    Er, the death threats have been coming from unionists.

    If these allegations are genuine i.e. if they are not a convenient attempt to divert attention from

    a) the violence and intimidation by the "vile ogre of loyalism" as representend by unionist "thugs",

    and

    b) and the findings of "shocking levels of collusion" between British terrorists in Northern Ireland and their British nationalist bedfellows in the security forces, then they are repulsive.

    How big that "if" should be is open to question.

    Would it be possible the death threats came from loyalists given the fact the DUP and UUP have called on them to suspend their flag protests, even though DUP and UUP still attend these protests?

    Bizarre I know.

    He said he not only condemned threats against himself and Mr Poots but had consistently condemned those against other democratic politicians. Mr Poots blamed dissident republicans angry at his stance that the flag should be flying.

    Honestly BTB, really honestly, I feel there are dirty tricks at play. And you used the word 'if'. Back when Gerry Adams got into a tangle regards his brother, he used his father's abuse as a diversionary tactic from the damaging, current, real issue. I believe this is happening now with the DUP and the flag situation.
