When the OO issues statements
condemning the placing of their neighbours' National flag on illegal bonfires,
Condemning burning photos of their neighbours' political representatives on illegal bonfires
Condemning bands who take part in their parades playing offensive
music outside Catholic Churches 
Condemning the louts who attach themselves to Orange parades
And requesting that all of the above disgraceful activities cease.
Telling us they've terminated the membership of the terrorist who drove a car into a crowd of people

I might well start to view them somewhat more favourably.
Until then I will hold the view that the OO is a bigoted anti Catholic organisation and reasonably prejudicially believe that obviously the males who belong to it must share those views.
Fixed that there for you.


A further revision.

Where's Lee Harvey Oswald today when you need him?

I know your question is rhetorical, but it's an opportunity to post one of the great news pictures.

General discussion / Re: The Great Tracker Mortgages Robbery
« on: October 23, 2017, 06:22:42 PM »
Is the 'crime' not that the banks were 'advising' customers that foregoing their tracker mortgages was a better financial option for them (their customers)?  Which it wasn't.
I don't think so. At the time the ECB rate was relatively high and so switching from the tracker for a fixed period made obvious sense. The unwillingness to allow lenders to revert to the tracker is the issue I'm aware of.


Surely this is the point though - they were told they would be able to revert and when they wanted to they were told different, is that not correct?
either way the borrower made a choice maybe a bad one but their choice.
as for bad advice what the difference between that and a car sales man telling you that a Toyota is better than a Volkswagen or a Skoda, it still buyer beware .
my reading is that everyone knows they banks are a soft target  and any kind of pressure can be put on them and with all the stage booing and hissing and they're own vurnerable state cpuld very well make them five in .

f some one has written evidence that they would be allowed back on a tracker then they have a very good chance in a courtroom of getting compensation and should do that otherwise its just hearsay even then it would be a breach of contract rather than a Crime?

The Capitalist  recovery system was a bail of of the institution of the bank to the benefit of   Account holders Big and small   and the Bond holders. all the top guys got sacked (except for boucher who brought BOI back to profitability and repaid all GOV Monies) the shareholders got slaughtered, and cheques were honered and the bondholders kept issuing loans and the world went on after a few bumpy months/years

Even the banks themselves are not as enthusiastic in defence of their actions as yourself. In fact, they've stopped defending them, admitted that they were wrongful, agreed to refund the money embezzled and are considering the level of compensation that will be  offered. You don't compensate somebody for doing them good or for an action that is not wrongful.

"Wrongful" is simply a weasel word for "criminal" in this case, since, as I said in a previous post, obtaining money bywrongful means is theft.

What law have the b**tards broken though?

Theft is a crime, at least for ordinary people. Pilfering a person's assets to the tune of tens of thousands by deception, lying, fraud and breach of contract is a particularly odious form of theft.

Woodie Guthrie put it better:
As through this world I've wandered
I've seen all kinds of men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

Who needs to wait for the official papers? Just ask Seamus.

There is lot of bollix in this thread.
There is difference between ban all activities with any risk and for one day in 50 years let's not do things that might put the rescue services under pressure.

It's just a microcosm of every other thread on this site and of internet "discussions" in general. AZOffaly's post (#248) is all that needs to be said about this subject by anyone who is reasonable and thoughtful.


Not too many like that.
It's good of you to anoint yourselves as the reasonable and thoughtful ones.


Did we?
Well yeah Seanie. In saying there's not too many reasonable and thoughtful people here, you're assuming yourself and those who share your opinion to be that small contingent.Hardy did it too, but maybe it's a good thing that the reasonable and thoughtful posters have enough self awareness to know they are are always right and not be distracted by alternative opinions.


Oh right. You see that was my opinion. I didn't realised it carried the weight of anointment.....I'll have to be careful with those powers.

I do think that if there was a Nuremberg type-trial on the Modern Ills of Gaelic Football then in the dock would certainly be Mickey Harte and Jim McGuinness.

However, before we hang and draw them, may I remind ye some of the football played in the 70s and 80s from my memory was God awful.

Catch, fumble, pick off the ground, root it as far as you can, hit your opponent a belt.....

The difference is fitness and perepation is on an entirely different level at IC now. If these teams wanted to play football it would be far better as a spectacle than the 70s.

thats what the auld lads miss . every ball was a contest and best man won the ball. it was not so much about skill as brawn and pure determination.
i think a lot of the current issue are ariding out of soccer counties like donegal where posssesion is king . you can see the same thing in rugby where iits almost an offence to turn over the ball.
6 new rules this year to stop it happening

It's all about skill now.

Warren Gatland has not "quit" as coach of the British Lions.

The British Lions appoint a coach in advance of each tour, and once all official duties in relation to that tour have concluded, they are no longer the coach of the British Lions.

Warren Gatland has not been the coach of the British Lions since all official duties in relation to the 2017 tour concluded in July.

There has been no coach of the British Lions since then, and there will not be until the announcement of the coach for the 2021 tour of South Africa is made, most likely in 2020.

Weird tact to take. He quit.

What?

As we don't do hate and bigotry very well I suggest you bring people to a Traditional  music session.

Correct. Why would you want to take your visitors to an Orange Order museum? In all the times I've visited the USA, none of my hosts has ever offered to take me here.
