You must find it difficult to live in Tyrone.
Not as difficult as you this time of year.
The beautiful red, white and not forgetting blue bunting in the towns, the lovely union flags and Ulster flags on display.
And it being the marching season theres always a band parade on somewhere, never mind the big Apprentice boys parade this weekend with all the feeder parades throughout Tyrone.

I see that sectarian GaaRa team got a hammering again last weekend.
maybe if they weren't so sectarian they would have a wean of prods in the squad and they might win sometimes.

A senior Northern Ireland civil servant was paid £10,000 (€11,150) in compensation because he was offended at having to walk past portraits of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, it has emerged.

His complaints led to the portraits being replaced by a picture of the queen meeting Martin McGuinness, the former deputy first minister of Northern Ireland and ex-IRA leader.




No reason was given, but we can assume that Hegarty doesn't mind a monthly cheque in sterling with a crown on it. Or was he trying it on?

This sounds like a promising new development in our compo culture, and so I was wondering what we can put in for, given that Higgins is - from de wesht - a "socialist" - a poet - of viking ancestry....
The Equality Commissioner threw more light on this last week on Radio Ulster. He suggested that there was a lot more to the case than was suggested. The story was broken in Parliament by that scoundrel Ken Magennis who used parliamentary privilege to name Mr Hegarty. The Equality Commissioner also suggest that that was unfair because Mr Hegarty has no right of reply in view of the fact that his settlement included a confidentiality clause, which prevented him from explaining the context.

Good to see you keeping up with Tyrone GAA.
I watch the NI news and on the sports headline was that the sectarian Tyrone Gaara team got hammered by Dublin 5-0 or something.
A few prods on the team may have made the score respectable.

He actually hasn't thrown any more light on it. He just bullshitted away for a while, before eventually admitting...
I don't know where the portraits where. I don't know if this was part of something bigger.

The poor wee dote he got £10,000 for having to look at pictures of the Queen,
And they payed the money in notes with pictures of the Queen on it, how insulting must that have been for the poor soul.
Imagine working for the British government and having to put up with pictures of the head of state.
My name for someone like that would be a scumbag money grabbing chancer.


Whereas your opinon is typical of someone who calls a whole flute band "scumbag slags" because they may have attended a parade 5 years earlier

DOG what century do you inhabit. Why would a government department pay anyone £10,000 in cash? Have you ever heard of bank accounts, electronic money transfers, or even cheques? But then again, I don't suppose you have, considering that you're still stuck in the 17th century..............

Even in the 17th century,
people didn't call good people "scumbag slags" without good reason.
This British government civil servant didn't mind carrying around images of Her Majesty in his pocket, he didn't mind getting paid by her government, but it upset him to have to look at images of her.
Sounds like a sectarian bigot or a money grabber.

Read the article again a bit more objectively. You missed the bit about the litigant being unable to defend himself by telling his side of the story, or for that matter the department providing an explanation as the agreement was the subject of a confidentiality agreement. Therefore the story has not been reported in a balance way, as it cannot be.
It is perfectly obvious that there was much more to this than a simple photo of the queen, considering that they are pretty common in civil service offices. Only a clown would believe it was as simple as it was portrayed by that bigoted bollix Magennis, who is a well known fool.

People who idolise sectarian murderers fit that description. Stop whinging and suck it up.
And please stop trolling by trying to derail the thread.

I tell the truth as you well know it.
I just like to pint out sectarian bigotry wherever i see it.
That civil servant sounds very much like yourself.

I bet you he doesn't think he is as smart now taking thatt case to court.
I hope his career in the supposedly independent Parades commission doesn't be affected.

Maginnis hid behind parliamentary privilege to make that statement. It would appear that he was afraid to expose himself to a defamation suit. Meanwhile Mr Hegarty cannot defend himself by outlining the full story due to a confidentiality clause. Therefore it is entirely unfair to make any judgement on his case without the full facts. Use a bit of common sense ffs. This settlement was signed off on by Theresa Villiers, SoS at the time. Do you think she's a fool? The man was promoted after this case. Those additional facts might well suggest to any sensible person that there was more to this than meets the eye.
Anyone who suggests for a moment that this settlement was based purely on the details presented by Maginnis is either a credulous idiot or a malevolent and very stupid bigot.

Here if that bigot civil servant wants to tell his side of the story, he can if it means that much to him.
All he has to do is give back the 10,000 Great British pounds that he got for being offended at seeing the Queen.
Lord Maginnis was right to call out the blatant hypocrisy of rebs by working for Her Majesties government and then getting offended at seeing pictures of the Queen.
It's well seen now that he will not now be rising through the ranks of the civil service, as no decent minister would promote someone so blatantly bigoted.
Is he a relation of yours?

So Colum Eastwood fits that description as he took part in a paramilitary funeral.
Tyrone Gaa members and supporters fit that description as we can see the Tyrone Gaa team idolise the IRA by singing their songs on the team bus
In fact all Gaa members idolise Reb terrorists by naming grounds and competitions after them.
All SDLP members and supporters are as they allowed councillors who voted to name a childrens playpark after a sectarian murderer, yes I said a childrens playpark, now that's what I call idolisng sectarian murderers.

You've got the concentration abilities of a bluebottle with ADHD. Apart from containing unhinged nonsense, this is completely off topic and not worthy of any further response,
