Panorama: Britain’s Secret Terror Deals

For all of you who couldn’t  – or didn’t  – manage to see the BBC  programme last night

Mark Thomson, Director of Relatives for Justice comments:

Fionntan O’Hagan, brother of murdered journalist Martin, speaks his mind

Danny Morrison, one-time PR for Sinn Fein, Belfast chats with others

What emerges from all these reports and sources is that for  over 40 years, the British government and its forces were involved  in  state-sponsored  assassination of the civilian population in Ireland.

In his report investigating the activities of William Stobie and Brian Nelson, John Stevens wrote:

Nationalists were known to be targeted but were not properly warned or protected.”

Today, the British government and its forces continue to conceal  the full extent of that murder campaign.

Ireland – the first nation to vote for gay equality

1916: the Irish threw off the shackles of British imperialism
2015: today they threw off one of the shackles of Conservative Jansenism-based Catholicism.
From today onwards, the Irish will be known as a progressive, compassionate and forward thinking people.

Women of Ireland

The next referendums are for you –

You will finally take your place among the “cherished children of the nation

Remember : neither Church nor State has a role to play in regulating women’s bodies.

So what’s happening in Northern Ireland – the place that’s preventing the UK from being totally in favour of equality for gay people? Or conversely, preventing Ireland from being totally in favour of equality for gay people?

At present  British women and LGBT  in Northern Ireland    are second-class British subjects.

No 1967 Abortion Act, No 2014 Same-sex  Marriage Act.

Irish people  are scarcely tolerated and were certainly denied a vote in the Referendum that was  held a few miles down the road.

Footballers and not, we’ll be coming down that road.

Like Republicans, Nationalists and  Catholics, Northern Irishwomen and  LGBT people do not want or expect “acceptance” from  religious bigots.

No one has the right to presume we need or want their “acceptance”  –  any more than we think we should “accept” the religious bigots and their beliefs.

It’s arrogant in the extreme to even suggest that we need to be “accepted“.

The bigots  imagine they have the  authority  to  refuse to “accept” others . This authority exists  only


in their fevered mindsets.


What we all  demand is that  somehow, in some way,  they  are obliged to relinquish  that imaginary  authority.

Resignations – Jim Murphy does a “reverse Farage”

The last man standing

David-Cameron 10


clegg gone

– Milliband resigned –

milliband 2

Farage resigned and made a comeback in 48 hours



Then  resigning  before being voted  in became  cutting edge .

Remember Chuka Umunna, Dan Jarvis?

Today I  was  uneasy. No one had resigned for over 24 hours.

 Scotland’s turn

And Jim Murphy, leader of the Scottish Branch of the British Labour Party, surprised us all! Did us proud!

With a “reverse -Farage”

Mr Murphy said

When I table that report at next month’s meeting of the Scottish Labour Party executive, I will also table my resignation as leader of the Scottish Labour Party.

“It will be for the party executive to decide whether it accepts the reforms proposed, but a party in such urgent need of reform blocks those changes at its peril.

He’s  going but not going . Leaving the leadership  in a month or so. Designing a new party  in the meantime!

What’s Jim Murphy’s record like?

*voted for the illegal Iraq War.

* is a high ranking member of the Neocon Henry Jackson Society.

* failed to graduate from University after 9 years.

* as Student President, u-turned over the issue of tuition fees.

* in Parliament, voted for tuition fees.

* voted against reform to the House of Lords.

* claimed hundreds of thousands in expenses.

murphy crucified

* crucified Labour in Scotland  by reducing it to 1 seat

Here’s Jim’s  Theme Song for the next month or so!

Time for change – May 2015

Tonight’s Saturday Night Film comes courtesy of Bella Caledonia.

It deals with Scotland but its message is for everyone living in the UK.

You listening, Northern Ireland?

For example, did you know Unionists have represented North Belfast since the 1880’s?

Population, families, shops, businesses and professionals have changed over all these years.

The South African War (Boer War ), two World wars, a Cold War, the Iron Curtain have all come and gone

The party representing North Belfast  is still the same, with the same old, same old shibboleths

same old

with its dead, empty anti-catholic, anti-nationalist, anti-republican, anti-gay, anti-women, anti-equality   rhetoric

Isn’t  time for a change in representation?
