" 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..."

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!

St Patrick , Bertie , Bush and (political) reptiles .......

Bertie 'to be sure to be sure..' Ahern who, yesterday (Friday 16 March 2007) speaking in Washington in relation to the 'Irish situation' , stated , amongst other things - "Everything along the way, every single demand, every single issue that has been put on the table has been delivered. There is only one thing left: powersharing."
And....
- " Mr. President, I'm glad to be able to say on this St. Patrick's Day, 2007, that peace in Ireland is a reality....."
What a political imbecile that man is !
The continuing demand , from Irish Republicans, for a complete British military and political withdrawal from this island has not yet "...been delivered.." on : that issue has been "...on the table.." for longer than 'Blank Cheque Bertie' (see 'Cheque Mate' , here) has been in Leinster House but , in the grand tradition of said institution , he has done nothing positive about the Six County issue . Nor will he . He will , however , as, indeed , will the rest of the political morons in that dirty toilet , continue to do everything in his power to prop-up the illegal and immoral claim over , and occupation of , those six Irish counties , thus ensuring that the issue will remain a 'live' problem for future generations of Irish people . And that is the 'legacy' which political self-serving time-wasters like Ahern will leave in their wake : the potential for future conflict . 'Happy St. Patricks Day' indeed.......

MEANWHILE.....



....... George Bush Junior yesterday congratulated Bertie Ahern for his "...strong leadership in resolving the issues of Northern Ireland(sic).. " !
The only two things Ahern ever 'resolved' in his political life was to obtain a State pension in order that he be kept in the style to which he has become accustomed and to bury 'The Boss' before 'the boss' could bury him !
Come back , St. Patrick - there are still (political) snakes around the shores of Ireland ....
