" 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!

Today , Tuesday 18th November 2008 , is , yet again , another "Historic Day" in the troubled annals of this wee island : the usurpers in Westminster have decreed that their newish-found rebel pets in the 'Province' can be trusted to have a bigger input into how the Occupied Six Counties is 'policed' . However , the trained pets will be keeping a close eye on the Provisionals , on behalf of Westminster , to make sure that Gerry , Martin and the rest of the Muppets don't lose the run of themselves and forget that it is in fact British 'law' that they are being 'allowed' to implement!

And this is being presented as a 'Victory' : an "Historic Day" for us Irish - when in actual fact what it is is a step further on the 'Normalisation' Road , aided and abetted , yet again, by the usual anti-republican elements in Leinster House and Westminster .
Irish Republicans will not be 'celebrating' today , nor did we celebrate on any of the previous days when similar 'historic' announcements were made : we will , however, truly celebrate when the day comes that Westminster announces her intention to finally
fully withdraw , politically and militarily , from this island . Until then, we hope the muppets enjoy their false dawn.....
