    Default Operation standstill - Friday 11th Jan, Belfast

    anyone hearing anything about this on the ground? - interested to hear from people in Belfast

    I have been told buses will be stopping at 3pm, Law courts advising staff to leave early, businesses and office workers around city centre closing around 3pm.

    Seems to be an underground rumour sweeping Belfast, that it is going to kick off accross the city tomorrow - anyone hearing same?

    Operation Standstill - an apt description of unionism to be fair

    For unionism this is as good as it gets, for nationalism this is the worse it can be.

    Operation Standstill...."province-wide"(sic) starts at 6pm tomorrow.
    Clearly an escalation but it will be interesting to see level of support and how it pans out at interfaces.

    rumor has it those wanting to skive off early on a Friday have nothing to do with this...

    Will this apply to off licenses? I wouldn't want the organizers source of inspiration to be hindered. Furthermore ain't it a bit early for the followers to be out of their scrathers?
