" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

(From the ‘e-Thursday’ section of the ‘Business Week’ supplement of the ‘Irish Independent’ , 21st August 2008.)

This blog was listed as one of the 'Finalists' in the '2016 current affairs/politics' category of the Littlewoods Ireland blog awards - but we didn't win the award. But not to worry -thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again the next time!

.......some of the words used today by those who gathered in a venue in Dublin 4 known as the 'Royal Dublin Society ' to 'debate' (ie pass a motion) on how much support to give , for now , to a British 'police force' on Irish soil ! And they picked (and 'packed...!) the venue well , as those who gathered there (some of whose leaders are pictured here , after the vote...!) are members of a Leinster House-registered political party which has an association with two 'parliaments' on Irish soil which were 'established' with the consent of British 'Royals' : Leinster House and Stormont.

In reality , what happened today is seen by this blog as simply another Leinster House political party (albeit one with a faint sniff of sulphur from it!) 'playing [constitutional] ball' with its buddies and financial backers in the various 'establishments' (ie Washington , London and Dublin) and attempting to become more 'mainstream' . They continue to insist that they are 'rebels' , 'revolutionaries' and 'socialists' but , truth be told , they are, at best , trained house pets , politically and financially controlled and directed by Washington , London and Dublin . Their ranks are swollen with 'angry nationalists' who felt it safe to join them after they turned constitutional in 1986 rather than the SDLP and/or Fianna Fail , as both of those political parties had not been quick enough in obtaining 'civil rights' for them . And that, readers , is the objective of the PSF ('Please Stoop Further') party - to secure a "brighter future" under British jurisdiction for Irish citizens living in the occupied Six Counties . And , of course , all the better when they will be comfortably salaried to do so by Westminster and Leinster House !
