Your own hatred for this political party is clouding your judgement.
That is not what anyone was claiming, ffs. You seem to have completely misunderstood the point being made. The issue of the dissident terrorist threat cannot be resolved by solely dealing with individuals. You lock up one person, ten more could rise up. A Thacterite approach will never work. We have to look at wider, societal and systemic issues. We need look at why and how they target young people to join their ranks. The current political impasse being a factor. That does not mean that those perpetrating acts of terror are somehow not culpable. If you believe that is what the folk are claiming then you are completely misunderstanding the argument being put forward.

The DUP are a self-serving, incompetent shower... currently dragging their heals because they do not want a progressive society.
You're wasting your time Dave

They don't attract young people they inveigle them by involving them in criminality-- easy drugs-- easy money and then thuggery.

Rioting is even easier -- get a dozen to the nearest convinient interface corner for a little name calling give it half an hour and the stones are arcing across the street---30 minutes later the police are call to split the party up -- and it's all go for 2 hours.

All you need is a dozen kids with nothing to do -- nowhere to go --and no one to answer to. ( because my father and mother did 15 years ago )

If anything I am surprised that with all the Government money put into Kingspan that it didn't come with restrictions on use for polictical purposes... if not mistaken Windsor wouldn't be able to house a polictical event but maybe Gary can advise on that...

Funny, I was thinking the opposite - the way the fools on the hill work, that because of all the government money that went into it, Kingspan couldn't refuse to host political parties. :roll:

I think given that Sinn Fein have more than 50% of the Catholic vote, and DUP have more than 50% of the Protestant vote how can you complain about Ravenhill being used for their launches? Really people are getting offended about the reality of Northern Ireland rather than something that is unacceptable. I'm not DUP voter, in fact I don't live in Northern Ireland, but the first step in being outraged has to be accepting reality.

Conversely, the DUP and SF each really pi$h off 60-70 % of the population of NI at any one time. Why should we be allowing these bigots into Kingspan at all?

Feckin agnostics need to get off the fence.

They'll be going from NI to a very hot place, kind of like Bagsniffer did.
