400 high quality private setor IT service jobs were created today in an £18m investment by Fujitsu Services - in Derry and Belfast.

The company will establish a managed IT services centre for Fujitsu's European customer base at Timber Quay in Derry, creating 328 new jobs. A further 74 jobs are to be created at the company's existing facilities in Belfast.

Excellent news for the people of Derry and a great vindication of the peace strategy of Sinn Féin.
Please.. an excellent job by invest Northern Ireland and DETI. I've worked close with both of them over a number of years and they are excellent organisations. Politicians in NI, aside from the amazing concept that companies don't like war torn countries, have had nothing to do with it.

INI, DETI, InterTrade ireland, SEUPB and the myriad of other organisations should take a bow. If you want to take the angle that this is becuase of the peace strategy, then the reverse applies, that the past 35 years of unemployment, misery at is due to SF's anti-peace strategy.. ho hum...

I find it hilarious that peace is referred to as a strategy...

A fast stream of good news on private sector jobs for the six counties in the last few days:


Ulster Bank shows six counties private sector jobs expanding:

1000 More private sector jobs in Antrim:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/6743097.stm

50 more jobs in Belfast for aeronautical engineering
http://www.rte.ie/business/2007/0612/jobs.html


All of this has been facilitated by Sinn Féin's peace strategy, making the six county economy a better place to invest - delivering better quality jobs for people up there.
What happened to Sinn Féin being a socialist party? Why do you support the resurrection of the 6 county economy when the Provisional IRA tried for so many years to bring it down? Why is it now acceptable or beneficial in strategic terms to sit in Stormont, instead of trying to undermine it and all that it stands for?

If you look at Sinn Féin's website you will find that Sinn Féin are in favour of high quality private sector jobs. The private sector is an important engine of economic growth. The six counties had grown very dependent on government jobs; its important for productivity in the six counties that there also be high-quality private sector jobs.

Q: What happened to Sinn Féin being a socialist party?

Sinn Féin's socialism is not the type which does not welcome high quality private sector jobs for people in the six counties.

Q: Why do you support the resurrection of the 6 county economy when the Provisional IRA tried for so many years to bring it down?

Sinn Féin and the IRA are two separate organisations and it was Sinn Féin that persuaded the IRS to stop those actions you mention.

Q: Why is it now acceptable or beneficial in strategic terms to sit in Stormont, instead of trying to undermine it and all that it stands for?

Because Sinn Féin want to help to improve the quality of life in the six counties - for all the people there whether protestant catholic or other. Sinn Féin's strategy does not depend on damaging the jobs of people in the six counties; in fact Sinn Féin wants to generate as many good jobs as possible for people up there.

It was quite a Paulian convertion to go from believing that blowing the sh1t of of the 06 county economy was the way to destabilise Crown rule, to believing that building up the economy was the way to remove English rule. Or perhaps the truth is that you have become quite content with the perks and salaries the English Crown pay you?

Cael made a good and obvious point there, Factual.

You mention that SF and the IRA are separate organisations, but even if this were true, (which it almost certainly isn't), SF gave rhetorical support the IRAs 'destroy the economy strategy'. Given 'the armalite and ballot box' approach, SF cannot disassociate from the actions of the IRA during this period.

What you call 'the peace strategy' is so labelled to distinguish it from their earlier 'blowing things up strategy'.

Are you not aware that virtually all democratic parties, in virtually all democratic countries, follow a 'peace strategy', in that they generally refrain from attempting to kill their political opponents, and do not usually attempt to sabotage the economy of the country they live in?

SF no more deserves congratulations because they now attempt to behave as a normal political party, when previously they behaved as an abnormal one, than does Ian Brady for not having killed any children recently.

If there are any jobs on the go it is better they go to the areas which have the greatest need - however if SF bolsters the division of Ireland by stabilising it is it counter-productive?

Why don't you call it Northern Ireland? You do, after all, recognise it as such and uphold its legitimacy.

Im really beginning to think Factual is is some kind of "dissident" agent, who's task is to make PSF look ridiculous (as if they werent expert at that themselves), but Factual's robotic output is enough to make the darkest days of Stalinist revisionism look footloose and fancy-free. Can Factual's brainless outpourings really be the New PSF?
