Northern Ireland: Terrorist state

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

A police officer has been shot dead in Northern Ireland, only two days after two soldiers were shot dead by the Real IRA.

Sinn Féin took half a day to come up with a statement that they could all agree on on the killing of the two soldiers at the weekend before they settled for saying they supported the police and that it’s not very nice to murder soldiers.  Let’s see how long it takes them to come up with a statement on the murder of a policeman if they support the police.

It’s time to cut Northern Ireland loose from the UK and make it a Crown Colony.  That way it will govern itself, raise and spend its own taxes (they get nearly £2k per head of population in subsidies from the English taxpayer so that’s a bonus) but the UK would be responsible for its defence and foreign relations.  They can then sort their own terrorists out.

I didn’t think this was a particularly controversial suggestion but it’s rattled at least one person – I made this suggestion on Facebook to Donal Blaney and he responded by removing me from his Facebook friends!  Rather amusingly, the latest post on his blog says “As a libertarian I, of course, defend their right to protest.”  Shame that libertarian ideal doesn’t stretch to defending the rights of someone to say something he doesn’t agree with.  Libertarian my arse.

    is that £2k more than an average englishman? Is it Barnett or is it their own version?

    The baddies are now in trouble, Martin McGuiness has come out against them, i think they will “disappear”

    Crown Colony, what disadvantages does it have? Could it be a way forward for us?

    I once thought that Donal Blaney showed promise but I quickly came to see that he is an idiot. I stopped reading his ‘overfed and in-bred’ nonsense when I felt that I could no longer refrain from gratuitously insulting him and I now think of ranting brain-dead Conservatives as ‘The Blaney Tendency’.

    Axel: (Suggestion deleted).

    Is it really that smart to first incist that Northern Ireland be part of Great Britain and then when it gets rough once again, pull out?
    I mean the conflict was created by GB,if they had just left the irish alone there wouldn’t be any terrorist attacks.
    Sometimes you have to clean up for your ancestors,I still have to justify my countries history to some people even though I was born 47 years after the war ended.
