Should there be no consequences for not paying your debt?

Everyone who has a mortgage knows that if you stop paying, the house is at risk.

I have no idea what the facts are in this case, but banks don't go in after a couple of missed repayments, and they generally try all they can to come up with revised payment plans where circumstances of the borrower changes. Repossession is last resort.
I donít think sending ex UDR/UVF men is the best option when carrying out an eviction. The people evicted had financial difficulties for some time by all accounts, but hiring a brigade of loyalists to secure the property was not the best idea. Not only did they revert to type and batter someone with little or no provocation,  they ended up getting their asses handed to them as a result and all sympathy will be with the former homeowners when in reality they havenít been paying what they owe.

I wouldnít bother. Know someone who ordered off DHgate 3 weeks ago, and no sign of it. Says he was told it could be tomorrow or it could be another 3 weeks

I remember Karma I think it only opened for a year or two

I think what the purists want is catch and kick. No structure or tactics other than catch the ball and kick the f**king thing as far and as hard and as high as you can for some mutant in full forward to catch and presumably score. Because apparently the best aspect of Gaelic football is the art of high fielding. How is the game going to be attractive to anyone if you keep changing the f**king rules?

Funny why this was removed yet councils every year pay to have bunting for the twelfth, and union flags flies all year round in town centres, and not a word about it.
They don't actually that was outlawed some time ago.

Someone better tell Ards and North Down then as they pay out for "festival" bunting in their annual accounts every year.

Who pays for this bunting if it isn't the councils?

Iíve seen plenty of towns in bunting for the twelfth. And the union flag flying all year in centre of town.
The bunting is put up by organised community groups, probably loyalist paramilitary influenced. I would say they get community grants as a way around the council actually doing the work.

If thatís the case, would they not need a permit to erect this bunting?

Each summer there are loads of examples of erecting flags in neutral areas, especially at road junctions or motorway/dual carriageway exits. They are never removed, nor are given approval in the first place. Just another example of putting those pesky taigs in their place.
Every year theres a row in Lurgan as the bring the bunting down the town to the nationalist end allegedly to the COI.

Used to go right around the Church but not any more. Up to the war memorial now.
Craigavon Protestant boys flute band if I remember correctly, they sneak out in the early hours of the morning to do it in their cherry pickers. Interesting how much longer they keep it up in Lurgan compared to towns with larger loyalist populations like banbridge and Lisburn. To annoy the taigs, obviously. Maybe next year theyíll keep it to their own end and leave the town centre neutral

Itís a nice connection, itís just late and therefore a foul. Correct call. Itís not 100% ďstonewallĒ but if it had not have been given, weíd be discussing how the ref bottled it and Gweedore had a legitimate shout for a penalty.

Cross seemed a bit over reliant on some of their players when the cross teams of old would have spread the scoring responsibilities. The goals killed them, credit to gweedore though they were the livelier team throughout and deserved their winning margin. They play a nice style of football for this time of year and seem incredibly fit. Think theyíll give scotstown all they want in the final

There better not be any trouble at this NI v ROI match or Iíll be pissed off.

Wheres it at? The huns wouldn't have the balls to start trouble in Dublin. Maybe an isolated GAA pitch on the way up the road

Thatís a nice jersey. Along with the Monaghan one itís a real tidy jersey. Look forward to seeing the new Armagh jersey, theyíll probably model it on the Dublin design  ::)

Canít see anyone consistently challenging Cross anytime soon and itís the same old problem, the chasing teams have no real championship pedigree (bar Harps).

Cullyhanna maybe have the players but havenít the balls to win a championship, much like Dromintee in years gone by. That ship has sailed.

The nab put a mammoth effort in this year but it will take more of the same to even get close and whether they have it in them remains to be seen. Could be another Cullyhanna

Time is not on magheryís side. If things go their way and with a bit of luck they could *maybe* reach the heights of 2016. Not sure they have much talent coming through the ranks though?

Harps seem to have gone backwards last year. Not sure what happened but if they regrouped itís possible they could challenge as they have the players and the tradition of winning championships.

Clann Eireann were the great white hope but have regressed, still time for them though, itís easy saying the wheels come off when you compare what their young players have to look up to compared to their peers in cross.

Rest of Div 1A and B are much of a muchness and wonít be causing any surprises anytime soon. Looks like Gerry Fegan will be in cross for the foreseeable

Of the last four teams that won the Armagh Championship outside of Cross:
Maghery got to the Ulster Club Semi, but were well beaten by Kilcoo
Harps were beaten by a goal by Derrygonnelly
Pearse Ogs narrowly beaten by St Gall's (who went on to win the All Ireland) -
Mullabawn won Ulster  ;)

So outside of Cross they have won 1 game in the last 20 years.
Ok so
In the last 22 years, half of the Ulster titles at senior level have went to cross. Rest of ulster must be shite, particularly Tyrone. Even Antrim clubs have a better record

A couple of observations. Was out socialising in Belfastís cathedral quarter over the weekend. A lot of punters out wearing their poppies. A lot of them completely inebriated. Some women seem to treat them as fashion accessories. As do some men. I donít see the need to wear a poppy when youíre out getting blocked, maybe someone could explain that one to me.. anyhoo, supposedly James McClean is being disrespectful by not wearing one, but the people I saw at the weekend are ten times worse.

So you canít go out in town have a drink, and wear a poppy? Oh I love reading this thread every year! The effort youíve made to be annoyed at poppy wearers is at expert level
Iím not annoyed. People can wear what they want and it makes no odds to me. I just think it gets worn for the completely wrong reasons, to the extent that I have barely any respect for anyone that wears one nowadays. Itís a symbol of british nationalism that I think has made a worrying rise in recent years. I know you plied your trade in h&w once upon a time but not everyone is as subservient as you in your outlook when it comes to things like this.
