Thread: Martin McGuinness appointed Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead

  1. #1

    Default Martin McGuinness appointed Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead

    A proud day for him I'm sure. Is that whole nonsense purely designed so that they Brits can have a bit of a giggle at the Sinn Fein boys and girls?

    Martin McGuinness appointed Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead

    What is it with these antiquated laws from medieval times being kept on?
    Somebody grab the script!

    A bailiff! Of all the titles possible, probably the most offensive to someone who sees his role as the undoing of the plantation of Ulster. It would be funny but for the rivers of blood which have flowed.

    Yes, British parliamentary procedure is deliberately designed with embarrassing Sinn Fein in mind, it's our no. 1 priorty.

    I hate to say it but sometimes the accusations I hear against some Sinn Fein supporters for paranoia on this site do ring true.
    Brexit? Never heard of it mate...

    From the article:

    “The Chancellor of the Exchequer has this day appointed James Martin Pacelli McGuinness to be Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead.

    Before he ran for a seat in the Dáil in 2011 Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams resigned his Westminster seat and automatically became the Crown Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead.
    Yet in the preceding paragraph they said they were phasing out double jobbing!
