    Default loyalty to the Crown (half) :

    Loyalists who accept "paid advocacy" from foreign states and not caring how much they spent of the British tax money on boilers for their friends. Lets be clear “I stand to be corrected … it’s my understanding” that unionists are happy to screw over the country they are supposed to be loyal.

    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.

    I disagree. Members of those forces had licence to harrass, abuse and even kill nationalists with impunity. For many, the wages were merely a bonus.

    The truth is one needs a police force. The problem in Northern Ireland was that the state did not trust its own citizens and chose to discriminate both directly and indirectly in having a balance in their security apparatus.

    This is one of the most crazy things that urgently needs changed. The inability of the current PSNI to reach out and make an impact on the "nationalist" population needs to be urgently changed.
