IRA is ‘still corrupting democracy’ in 2018

Well you could have knocked moi over with a feather that hadn't gone away, 20 years on from GFA and the largest CNR 'party' is still being ordered about by a bunch of terrorist godfathers...

PSNI Chief Constable George Hamilton said that “the IRA still exists ” and that the assessments of it “hasn’t changed since 2015”.

(The report in 2015 concluded that the organisation’s Army Council “oversees both PIRA and Sinn Fein with an overarching strategy”.)



The apparently ongoing influence of IRA structures over issues such as the return of a power sharing government is “a fundamental corruption of democracy”

“This fundamental corruption of democracy is also corrosive - spreading outwards from republicanism and northern nationalism, it hollows out the bonds of trust and collaboration that any functioning democratic society depends on,”

Ulster University Politics lecturer Dr Cillian McGrattan has warned.


UUP leader Robin Swann asked this week if the IRA army council was “dictating the terms for Sinn Fein’s return to Stormont”.

Former Alliance leader David Ford MLA responded that only mandates given by the electorate should be influencing power sharing. “Northern Ireland urgently needs a return of genuine power-sharing in the Assembly, with only the mandates given to the parties having influence over our future,”

So p.iesters is it time for Sf/Ra to emerge from the shadow of the terrorist godfathers or are ye happy votailing for the stooges of the woolly face brigade...

If you keep pulling at a sore you'll only make it worse, BtB. I'm beginning to think that the peace process dismayed certain people in Northern Ireland as it endangered the way they define themselves.

Get over it.

Sat what you like about De Valera but at least he realised the IRA were a threat to democracy in the 26 - and acted appropriately during WWII, with a response that put the reaction of Stormont and Westminster to shame.

“This is the worst thing that has ever happened to us.”

“the most destabilising event since partition”.

Unionist leader on the IRA ending violence.

Well they aren't doing much of a good job of it. More like the Salvation Army nowadays. Considering Emma's mates in the UVF have been reminding us all of the past inglorious events in the shared housing scheme, reporting someone on Twitter ain't quite cutting edge enough with this 2018 Salvation Army Council.

Didn't really read any of that, me old mucker.....
I just wanted to ask is the real war here between yourself and the DOG in terms of starting silly threads....although yours are slightly more articulate and we get the added Joycean bonus of a bit of French and Fermanagh folk language thrown in......you should look for a grant for that by the way....it's as relevant as Ulster Scotch....
Anyway, just wanted to say nobody's reading, nobody's listening, and nobody is caring about your wee contest with another loyalist troll.....fifty per cent plus one and it's game over, china.....at which point you can decide whether you want to live and work in the new dispensation or look for some prime real estate in Ayrshire....Troon's lovely and you can go to the bowling club with Johnny Adair...

Yeah - its ballix. Maybe they need something to amuse them apart from collecting their pensions and walking their dogs.

Back to the year 2018 - what do you think will happen with the abortion vote this afternoon? If it goes against them, do you think the DUP will pull the plug on this government?

Even if the so-called Army Council still call the shots, who cares? Unless the PIRA is engaging in illegal activity, the governing of Sinn Féin is a matter for Sinn Féin.

Old IRA veterans controlled Fianna Fail well into the 1950s.
