The fact that different groups of people live on an island or a sub-continent does not mean that any one group has a right to rule the whole geographical area. The only time India was united was under the British; something similar with the island of Hispaniola which was once ruled as one unit by the French but is now two countries - and the Indian sub-continent is three. The only time the geographical island of Ireland was ruled as one unit was under the British.

    You need a better justification for 30 years of terrorism.

    The party advocating non-violent methods of change, the SDLP, always outpolled Sinn Féin, and by a margin of up to three to one. Add in the nationalists who voted for non-nationalist parties and it is easy to see why the biggest share of the vote Sinn Féin ever won in any election in the North before the IRA’s ceasefire was 13pc...


    Yes indeed, it's Unionist Councillor Jolene Bunting we have to watch!
    Sinn Fein had their voices banned in the media by the Brits and by section 31- very hard to get the message out to the people under those circumstances- but still those in the war zones give Sinn Fein some vote back then because they seen the truth with their own eyes-

    More bullsh1t.

    Ireland as a Nation and Kingdom (Ruaidrí Ua Conchobair was the High King of Ireland when England invaded) was recognised as a Country with its own Laws (the very essence of a unitary Country), language, alphabet, Gaelic culture, throughout the world, long before the 10th century upstart England even existed.

    Who do you think the king of England, Henry II signed the treaty of Windsor with other than the High King of Ireland, Ruaidrí Ua Conchobair... Fr. Murphy???

    A treaty by the way that England broke - as usual.

    She was involved in some stupid supposed "Free Speech" rally in London- now the UK mainland does have utterly crazy laws limiting "Free Speech" however this rally was basically blaming Muslims for that when they are in no responsible, and in fact the groups that the main speaker "Milo" belongs to are, and of course they never got named. Why is it that while you do get intelligent "Conservatives" in other people they don't exist in the Anglosphere. The interview is absolutely painful but what is interesting about it is that it becomes clear that she got in touch with them and not visa versa. Most savage Prods don't care one way or the other about anything that happens outside of Ulster. The fact that she is reaching out to the wider world is therefore in and of itself interesting. Redice started out as wacky conspiracy and fortean podcast which I used to listen to occasionally but has since morphed into very full on "White Nationalism"- they have gone so far as to have shows praising Hitler! The thing is that I would imagine that the vast majority of "White Nationalists" wouldn't want to touch Norn Iron "identity politics" and they would see it as bringing "racial disunity". I wonder when she will pop up next?

    It seems to me these shady and frankly odd alt-right media outlets don't vet nor care whom their current mouthpiece is. Who in their right mind would see Bunting as a salesperson for their brand of politics or stances. But hey, as long as she hates the brown skinned desert dwellers, then fair game. Plug in the mic and go for it. Nuts. The first two noticeable local backers of Jolene were Clifford Peeples and surprisingly David Vance.

    Maybe that should be 'unsurpringly', as David Vance recently Tweeted 'Schadenfreude' under a news story that reported a woman who was helping and encouraging refugees, was raped by one. Similar undertones with Willie's rant yesterday. A very odd, odd band of people. Even young and dumb Jamie wouldn't even touch that whole thing with John Taylor's decommissioned barge pole. Imagine being so embarrassing your party drops you outta the blue even when commanding a winning mandate.

    They do exist in the Anglosphere. It's just that the definitions have shifted. When conservatives started their move to the right with the advent of Thatcherism and Reaganism, New Labour and the Democrats took up the positions vacated by the Conservative Party and the Republicans. Harold Macmillan and Nelson Rockyfeller would, respectively be perfectly at home in New Labour and the Democrats these days.

    Okay fair enough. Paul Gottfried is most assuredly intelligent, John Milbank is definitely intelligent but does his Red Toryism count as Conservative? I am not sure it should but it would definitely on Politics.ie. However most people I have come across from English speaking countries who would consider themselves to be "Conservative" and who aren't Paleo-Tories of some sort tend to be pretty dim.
