SF don't support or argue for the people who carried out the Omagh bombing. These people are diametrically opposed to and indeed detest SF who they regard as traitors. You really need to get over your obsession with SF and your gra for British army and loyalist killers and extremists. You'll feel better.The late late show gay byrne special last night was powerful. To hear Gay Byrne talking to the Omagh bombing victims reminds us what animals SF support / argue for
The majority of people would have a different opinion on plenty of issues now compared to 1981, I would suggest. I have been a Republican all my life and unlike a lot of my contemporaries have always been in favour of the EU and still am, problems aside. I have of course altered my opinion on some other issues. That's life.I was referring to the Lisbon Treaty, when we were asked to vote twice, because we obviously voted the wrong way the first time, but if you want to pretend otherwise, knock yourself out: Twenty-eighth Amendment of the Constitution of Ireland ...
I actually like the idea of a European Union of sorts, but that's not going to alter the blatant anti-democratic nature of the institution.
When Bobby Sands was elected, Republicans were opposed to the EU.
Lest we Forget – Security Forces Created Shankill UDA ...
OK, but if the Security Forces effectively created and controlled the UDA, what does that say about people who support the former?
Leinster House and Stormont being the buffers between the Irish Republic and British Capitalism, people like McAllister have adopted the same ideological position as the counter-revolutionary National Army types of the 1920's, so your tone, implying that I have nothing but contempt for Irish nationals and interesting fellow-travelers, doesn't surprise me in the least.
You are of course, quite wrong. No surprise there.Not true in the context of Irish Republicanism.
Where or when have you ever heard Sinn Fein describe themselves as Nationalists?
On the contrary they always go out of their way to use the phrase "Republicans AND Nationalists". Although since their killing machine , PIRA, has eased off on their favourite past time they have hinted at acceptance of the Nationalist tag.
