    Your report states that 88% of Catholic respondents had not experienced any discrimination.

    Lies damn lies and statistics.

    Not only taigs, but wimminz as well.

    What it says is this:

    l at least 29 per cent of all Catholic members had experienced religious harassment from colleagues;
    now, 29% is a lot more than 12% (the balance of this 88% that you say experienced "no harassment")

    It also said:

    On the other hand more than one-third of Catholic respondents felt harassment remained a serious problem, while only 11 per cent of Catholic respondents, together with 14 per cent of Protestants, considered there was no discrimination in the force.
    which says 89% of Catholic Recruits believed discrimination was a serious problem.

    Couple of points - firstly there is a difference between discrimination and feeling discriminated against...

    secondly - Stephen Gwynn made a telling comment - "Sinn Féin honeycombed the British service in Ireland with persons who thought it honest to conspire actively against the government which paid them. One cannot expect Sir James Craig and his ministers to have forgotten that nor blame them for acting on the memory."

    "Stephen Lucius Gwynn (13 February 1864 – 11 June 1950) was an Irish journalist, biographer, author, poet and Protestant Nationalist politician. As a member of the Irish Parliamentary Party he represented Galway city as its Member of Parliament from 1906 to 1918. He served as a British Army officer in France during World War I and was a prominent proponent of Irish involvement in the Allied war effort.[1] He founded the Irish Centre Party in 1919, but his moderate nationalism was eclipsed by the growing popularity of Sinn Féin."

    I have come to the conclusion that one cannot get any sense out of the Unionists parties. More to the point how the hell do you reach any sort of compromise? I do not think any compromise that lasts will work with unionism.

    It is time that we reached for more drastic measures such as getting rid of the MLA's and giving the powers to local government.

    Ooops, wrong thread .. When I read the title i initially thought it must be about the pathetic performance of the "Loyal" ulster OO types during WW2

    .. you know, the same lads who hid away from the fighting and made money off the backs of the war effort while the rest of Europe, including their "neutral" neighbours, who they detest, were off fighting the Jerries...


    When you consider all the greedy corrupt pathetic displays of late combined with their past performance you have to admit, these crackpots truly are loyal to the half crown only .... So yeah, twas the right thread after all
