General discussion / Re: The beating of that girl in Bangor
« on: April 25, 2018, 10:01:07 PM »
Anyone see the video? Mad stuff. She was lucky to walk away alive from that pounding. The perps are being charged with GBH but I'm wondering why it's not attempted murder. There must be a high bar to proving that charge.

Ah. Forgot about the other thread. Sorry.

Totally agree here and I said it a few days ago. Harte must get a suspension for this. Most tyrone supporters I know would be delighted.

Under what rule?

Watched the video last night - don't know how this one goes down as GBH with intent. More like attempted murder to be honest.

I have just seen the video and it's Definitely not attempted murder. Depending on the injuries it may not even be a GBH although I'd expect at least an attempted GBH. Vile and reprehensible

How is it not attempted murder? Repeated pounding of the head against concrete? That happened at least twice. A couple of hundred punches to the head? Holding her head under the water in a fountain when she tried to escape? Sorry, but that girl would be dead by now if she didn't get away when she did.

The Official Guide should be updated. It's no longer enough that it should be "non-party political," it should be "non-political." We should be able to discipline anyone using the GAA's name in a political campaign whether it's an election or a referendum.

Cannot believe FF are still a force in the Republic after nearly sinking the country a few years back. Jaysus, people have short memories. I know the SDLP are in dire straits, but to hitch their wagon to that shower of corrupt clowns shows how bad things are for wee Colum. Saying that, McCrossan would fit right in with FF, the snivelling little shit

When it comes to politics, people have short memories. Thatcher and her Tory's wreck the place, then the Brits couldn't get them back quick enough.
People have short memories. The Provos plant bombs ,murder innocent men women and children, disappear so called informers on the instruction of the worst informer of all in a hierarchy riddled with informers and still people will vote for their political wing. It isn't only FF have a history.

You're right. Freedom for 26 of the 32 counties was won by asking those awfully nice British chaps if they would mind awfully f**king off ... hypocrisy seeps out of almost everything you post, ya clown  ::)

Put those goalposts back where you got them. We're not talking about the war of independence.

The Provos planted bombs with the support of the majority of the Catholic/Nationalist community.

So how do you explain the SDLP being the biggest nationalist party for years until well after the Provo ceasefire?

Interesting how sectarianism seems to be the deciding factor. The more sectarian, the more sh*tholy it is. Just shows you.

So Bertie Ahearn after saying on Newsnight that a border poll which throws up a 52-48 majority for a United Ireland would not be good enough.  What does he want, 60-40, 70-30 or the best of three ... when democracy is no longer democracy.
He's irrelevant and despised by most.
+1.

Going off tangent but what are people's thoughts about a mooted FF amalgamation with SDLP for future NI elections?

This seems to come up every few years. Couldn't see it happening. SDLP's heart beats closer to Labour in any case.

Ardara, Co. Donegal.

Hillsborough, Co. Down, black as it may be is a lovely, well kept town with some great spots for food and drink.
Presumably the use of the  word 'black' is a pejorative term.  What would the equivalent to this be on the opposite side of the coin?

I've absolutely no idea.

I'm sure you know full well that "black" being used in that particular context simply refers to a location as being overwhelmingly unionist or Protestant. A historically cold house for people of my ilk. Whether that's pejorative or not is a different question altogether.

Funny thing about the use of that word. When Protestants are giving out about the cops they call them "black b******s." Damned if I know where that comes from.

Towns that i have been in (or passed through) that I consider shitholes:
Portadown
Newry
Limavady
Coleraine
Newbuildings
Clough
Much of east Belfast
Newtownhamilton

Newry? WTF have you got against Newry?! Nice people, nice town centre, canal towpaths being done up...

Did they interview loyalists or republicans when they came to the North? Because that would skew the Ireland and UK percentage.

Wouldn't make much of an impact in the UK stats. 1 million unionists out of 65 million in the UK.

For Armagh I nominate Portadown.
Antrim - Harryville in Ballymena (where they picketed that chapel over the Dunloy parade)
Down - Ballynahinch (No Pope, no pinch, no Paddy's Day, in the town of Ballynahinch, they say)
Dublin - That place you walk through from Connelly Station to Croke Park, the place with the flats that look like prisons.
Other counties, no opinion.

I don't have a problem with the thread, I just think it's interesting to see how many people don't see the good stuff they see every day. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that. Last time I visited Lurgan I brought my intended with me and she thought it was great.

in the heart of the town. Can't remember where exactly but it was in the middle of a housing estate and the pitch had a very "closed in feeling" to it. To be honest when the match was over and the sun was setting, there was an air of "you don't want to be here when it's dark as a stranger on your own" the same way that going up to a game in Strabane could also give (for those not familiar, up there to get to the Strabane Sigersons ground you have to go right through the heart of the Ballycolman estate.

Sounds like Clann Eireann Park which is in the middle of the Kilwilke estate. You'd be safe enough there. William St at 1:00am at the weekend though, that's another matter. Lot of drunkenness in the street and not a lot of law enforcement to keep a lid on things.
