Tis the Winter season –
Time to stay at home of a cold, snowy evening and enjoy a film!
I liked the name of this film.
And I liked the eye-witness testimony of the Falls Curfew
Which we described here
Confirmation of the eye-witness’s reports of lack of food in the area was the permission granted by the British Army officers in command to go to the shops.
“Saturday 4 July 1970 The Falls Road curfew continued throughout the day
5.00 pm A British Army officer announced by loudspeaker that people could come out for one hour to secure vital supplies . There were scuffles between British soldiers and locals during that hour and even children did not escape the brutality. An eight-year-old boy had his head split open by a British army baton and was then refused permission to be taken out of the area for badly needed medical attention.”
Opinions on the film vary
“What a fantastic documentary. What we Irish had to put up with. Ending was superb and so poetic“.
“A great documentary and chilling to the bone”
“Something not right about this documentary, actors perhaps?”
“What a fragmented, badly scripted documentary. Why could they not just shoot in chronological order instead of going back and forth with the timeline. Pointless!”
Which means it should be thought-provoking or an arty-farty pseudo avant-guardish sorta production!
Make up your own minds!
C’mon all you Sudoki fans.
All you Maths Wizards!

Even Grand Masters!
Real ones, I mean – not those pseudo Orange Lodge Grand and Worshipful Masters!
Solve this problem!
Because the UK certainly can’t and won’t as it travels the Euro Line through to Brussels Bridge.
The UK Brexit train is fast approaching Grovellors’ Gate.
Carriages have detached. The train is now stopped in Dead Canary Wharf as the EMA carriages move to Amsterdam and the EBA to Paris, taking up to 1,000 jobs with them.
The European Commission has informed the British Government that a British City cannot be a European Capital of Culture in 2023
Next major halt for the rest of the Brexit train – the break-up line in Scotland Yard!
Coming up Autumn 2018 – Spring 2019
British Rail timetables were always erratic!
NB – The Remain Shuttle is “Out of Service” and likely to remain so for the forseeable, no matter what Vince Cable and the Lib-Dems say! And Lord Kerr who wrote Article 50!
The bus service back to Status Quo has been cancelled due to trade disputes which haven’t started yet.
PICS AND REFS
Westminster will not incorporate the principles of the Good Friday Agreement in the EU withdrawal bill.
Parliament voted 313 against, 48 in favour.
The DUP has got Westminster to abolish the BelfastAgreement/GFA!
It will be gone by Brexit Day, March 2019
There’s no depths England will not stoop to as they over-ride other people’s rights. Ireland North and South held referendums to approve the GFA – the Republic even altered its Constitution to ensure it was passed
Comes as no surprise to the Scots who saw their hopes of maintaining devolution status eliminated on “usually” – one word in the Sewell Convention
What now for Irish Republicans/nationalists and Scottish nationalists?
What now for the EU and International Treaties bearing the UK’s signature?
