    Default DUP 'outraged' over use of relief helicoptors.

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...44770516,d.dmg


    Trevor Clarke of the DUP labeled this humanitarian relief effort as 'playing politics'. The fact that that thousands of stranded animals would have died of starvation had the Irish Army Air Corps helicoptors not been sent north is irrelevant to Trevor. In a futile attempt at damage control he later sniffed that he didn't care if it was the French air corps, he's still 'outraged'.

    He's in the DUP, ergo he's a bigot.

    No surprise.

    Trevor Clarke of the DUP said he did not care if it was the Irish Air Corps or the French Air Corps, but he believed politics was being played with the matter.

    His party colleague, Paul Frew, who chairs the committee, asked the senior government officials who were briefing the committee, whether the minister had requested help from the Territorial Army (TA).


    Truly unbelievable stuff. I wonder how the pro unionist farmers in Antrim and Down feel about the use of Irish Army Air Corps coming to the rescue of their starving livestock.

    I would think his problem is Tommy that the Irish Army had our National flag painted on the tails of the helicoptors or at least they did used to have.

    No complaints from Trevor when his beloved british murder squads crossed the border to plant bombs in Dublin or Monaghan.

    He doesn't give a fuk about farmers livestock or livelihood or well being.

    A cheap shot by the bigot.

    Clarke's real issue here is that the request for Dublin assistance came from Sinn Fein Agricultural Minister Michelle O'Neill.

    And no complaints when the Irish govt spent money on roads north of the border and when they came down cap in hand to politiely ask if beef from the wee statelet could be labeled Irish beef during the foot and mouth crisis.
    Follow the money in this country and it ALWAYS goes back to state support, be it tax breaks, state contracts and the manipulation of markets for the gombeen class.

    I wonder does the same DUP man object to Free State firebrigades helping to save lives during the Blitz in Belfast?
