Brown: "The end to decades of strife"

#2
No, he's just doing what he always does when something bad happens - looks the other way and pretends nothing is going on.
 
#3
For all that people are critical of Cameron for using too many soundbites, Brown really is the ultimate politician!

No shame.
No sense of duty.

The only thing that burns in his heart is desire to remain in power, and he is willing to do or say anything to achieve this, no matter how ludicrous it sounds.

What he's saying is the DUP & SF are on board. If the rest of them want to wave placards outside Stormont from now till doomsday nobody gives a shit.

And, (for once) He's right.
 
#5
Waving placards is one thing, detonating car bombs is another!

There is still (unfortunately) a long way to go, but it is atleast heading in the right direction.

Sorry but the Justice Vote is a crock of $chitt. Under the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) back in '98 the DUP were all NO votes when the UUP had the majority. Now that the DUP are in cahoots with Sinn Fein and all mates they want to push forward. Certain individuals in Stormont are not fit to be involved in Justice or Policing (and we know who they are). If we are to have honest and truthful justice over here we need to have a transparent system. Not a pick & mix. Martin McGuiness refused to elaborate on certain evidence at the £400 Mill Bloody Sunday Enquiry as he chose to withold certain information. We simply can't have that attitude in Stormont in devolved power. Not a single penny has been spent on the Warrenpoint Bombings inquiry yet. Would you like to the see Chief Con of the PSNI & his 6 ACC's report into the #2 of the Derry IRA Brigade ?

PM hails "historic" NI justice vote

The devolution of policing and justice powers to Northern Ireland marks the end to decades of strife, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has said.
Did he miss this?

Head firmly in the sand anyone?
What about this? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/8557130.stm - a car bomb in England. We don't impose martial law on Kent.

The people of Northern Ireland, catholic and protestant, want peace. The war is over, but there are a tiny handful of nutters (sociopathic criminals who, for some reason, still think that they have a cause) still hanging about. These people will continue to cause trouble until they have nothing to gain from it, fortunately the community is increasingly supportive of peace and people like RIRA are getting ever more isolated. NI is still safer than vast swathes of GB, so it's about time we stopped treating NI like a basketcase. Treat NI like a grown up and eventually the nutters will go away.

"War time courage" and Gordon Brown should never be put together in the same sentence....they have nothing to do with each other.
Brown should do a bit of front line service before he sarts writing books about "Courage!!!!
Loads of good S.F. personel paid the ultimate price over in N.I. both Forces and cops.....fighting the very People that are now trying to run the show.....We were sold out!!!

Sounds familiar. Where have I heard something like it?

Ah, yes, I remember now:

Gordon 'Dribbling Spaktard' Brown said:
"The end of Boom and Bust!"

The issue being discussed is very serious and frankly not very well understood outside the Stormont hothouse. Unfortunately this will turn into another 'Brown is a cretin thread' because Brown is a cretin and while we may not understand the ins and outs of plising-n-jus'is we have all cottoned onto the cretin's uselessness.

A Radio 4 programm from NI made it perfectly clear that the NI population didn't give a damm about the tw*ts in Stormant playing kiddies's games and wanted slightly more urgent issue for NI dealing with, like health, jobs, education, etc, etc. If I remember rightly the real people were being to like their Pols as much as we like our f**kwits in Westminister.

Everyone wants peace, everyone wants policing and justice devolved and if that is what the R4 program asked that's the answer they got. What they didn't ask is: on what terms? That is one of the problems, everyone wants it on their own terms. Billy MacBigot doesn't want the IRA in control of the police and Paddy O'Bombplanter doesn't want the Orangemen i/c peelers either.

The increasing mood of 'a curse a both your houses' is encouraging.

Thus speaks an expert - I've been here for 1/2 a year...
