Headline in today's Belfast Telegraph
Another hard lesson on dealing with past - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
How could the PUL community have confidence and security when being continually bombarded with reconciliation statements by republicans then this is being refuted by their actions. Consider the flag issue, the naming of a council play park after a Provo terrorist and now appointing a ex IRA spy a vice principle post in a catholic school.
This so called respectable teacher was brought up through the provo ranks via the Queens student union brigade after the they had announced their ceasefire in 1994 and supposidly in an era of peace.
How could this evil terrorist be a role model to young impressionable Roman Catholic girls.
Has she apologised for her terrorist past?
Has she refuted and denounced terrorist activities?

Unionist bigots and religious extremists can hold top public and health jobs, but fenians are still being discriminated against? Them days are long gone, dog.
Globes dear
As usual no arguement just sectarian bile. When you menton discrimination which party and ex storomont minister was recently found guilty of discriminating against Protestants? Go on have a guess and they are not appealing as Guilty as charged. Power corrupts and dscrimination occurs to the detriment of prods.

I wouldn't get your knickers in a twist over this if I were you; she's been heading up educational quangos and suchlike for some time now. I presume she's a reformed person, and entirely suited to teaching the British educational curriculum.

Sorry "I presume" is not good enough, has she repented from her terrorist past so is she a suitable role model for students

I don't think you'll like it DOG!!!

You believe the IRA were terrorists and that's fine. Others like Global Justice believe they were fighting against a grubby, sectarian State that trampled all over his communities rights. Personally, I think there was some very bad sh*t committed by both sides all the way up to the GFA in 1998.

The fact is, if a former UDR or British Army man was installed as principle of a school, CNR's may well think that such a person shouldn't be appointed to such an office. You would probably disagree with that but that's just the way it is. If a former IRA commander is good enough to be the Deputy First Minister of the State, then a former IRA member is good enough to be a school principle. (As would a former British soldier or UDR person by the way).

Wounds are evidently still raw, even after a decade and a half of (relative) peace. You're quite clearly still raw about it DOG and that's understandable.

But it works both ways.

Kinda funny that Allister was on objecting to this whilst presently supporting a paedophile.

Better that being lectured to by mass murderers [ Forde, Jackson, Hermon . . ] who never served a day in jail.

Some part time UDR and RUC men were also teachers and served their country and their students and did so without being cowarly murderers. In fact I know of a local headmaster in Co Tyrone who was targeted and shot on his way to school because he proudly and legitimally served in the UDR.
What republicans refuse to publically accept yet still know the reality is that there is no legitimate comparison between the IRA and members of the security forces. You can compare Loyalist and republican terrorst groups but you dont accept this comparison Doh.If you read the editors viewpoint it says we accept the DFM because it is a democratic vote yet this is perhaps a step to far.

It's ironic that a thread about education refers to a vice principle. Whatever the drawbacks of such a person here's hoping they introduce English and particularly English grammar into the syllabus.

Think you'll find some were also 'cowardly murderers'. Even set up their own.
