    Food tasted even better that ever in 81.
    We appreciate the move by the Government today and remind ourselves that it is a bail-out by taxpayers for the banks. Pearse Doherty

    Niall, you must know that those aren't the lessons Irish history teaches us.

    Unionism has always reacted with violence to any advancement to Irish self-determination. Reunification may be the last ever manifestation of that willful belligerence, but Irish history says it will be absolutely inevitable.

    It is crucial that it is stamped down on hard and quickly. The government will be doing it as much for the long term interests of the Mount Vernonists of this world as the rest of us.

    The army has to be absolutely determined that no ultramontane carry on will be entertained. It has to be equipped to meet the challenge. It has to have pre-reunification intelligence gathered to ensure the main ringleaders are rounded up the day they march in. Crucially it has to have full backing of government and the resolution to carry out its humanitarian task.
    We are all born mad. Some remain so.

    Pffft, the Imperial invaders will be met with a Red hand made of lead...

    Remember, the storm is a good opportunity for the pine and the cypress to show their strength and their stability.

    The big difference this time is that the British military and intelligence services will have zero interest in arming, running, supporting them, and the justice system would not turn a blind eye.

    Without state support there is no prospect of any serious resistance.

    Did the Irish state support the Provos?

    - No- but the Provos had a lot of support from the Irish people- from Irish America- from Libya etc- you don’t need A state- as the Unionists will eventually find out- you need people support-
