The dead man's car crashed off the M1 near Portadown this morning. Gunfire was heard at the time. Police confirmed an ambush took place. Vehicle was registered to Northern Ireland Prison Service. Motorway closed in both directions.

Possible connection to on-going dispute involving republicans at Maghaberry prison.

If it was a PO that was murdered, wait to hear Adams and McGuinness's party condemn it. IRA Provos never did anything like that !

let's hear the justifications for it - some guy not getting his "rights" in prison i suppose.
Do you understand the concept of "political prisoner"?

Bring back flogging, hanging etc. Froth, froth, froth.

Ah come on Eoin, could you at least express sympathy for the family involved before you start playing political football with the situation!

The simple answer to you is: 77.

Tiny Lyons was lucky to escape a Kerry assassination squad who went after the animal in the 1930s.

Someone should talk to the dissidents. This carry on at this low level will get them nowhere, jail excepted.

So, short of locking up all republicans and their off-spring, how do you propose dealing with the situation?
