General discussion / Newspaper article Helpl
« on: April 27, 2009, 09:08:30 AM »
I have just been on the Newshound website and read a rather odd article by Jim Cusack. In it he describes people as "Scobes" I have not heard this before. From reading his article I assume that this term would be used to describe someone who is not to bright. Would this be the case and where did it come from??     

General discussion / Where to get rid of coins?
« on: March 14, 2009, 10:12:21 AM »
Folks Can anyone help

I have collected, counted and bagged some 90 of coins(1,2,5 and 10p)  which I was going to deposit in the bank and take the money out to buy the kids some treats. However When I arrived at the nationwide this morning I was informed that I could only deposit 5 bags-no good considering I had 40 coin bags with me. Where can I get rid of the other bags-bloody annoyed that I can't put money into my own account needless to say the staff where not much help!

General discussion / Buying a house
« on: January 06, 2009, 03:54:19 PM »
Looking for some help.

I have an offer on my house which I want to accept. However looking at property news and estate agent websites it seems that few are dropping prices.(I took 100 grand off mine). The houses I am after have not dropped in price as far as I can see and are still sitting at 180-200 grand since  last summer with frankly no chance of going at that price-Shoud I just call estate agents and be as bold as brass and say "I'm not paying you that I can go to 30-40 grand under" would the hang up the phone or would they be prepared to haggle and go back to the vendors. Given that there is a further slump on the cards is my plan a goer. I would like the hear the thoughts of any of you invovled in the building industry and estate agency trade in the north


General discussion / Gregory Campbell is a clown

Don't know if this has been posted on other thread-but can you believe the below-the article in full is on BBC Website-he also stated that Rangers had taken steps to resolve the sectarian songs and chants of their own fans-the man is a walking Anus.

Northern Ireland's sports minister has said he is unlikely to accept an invite to visit Celtic Football Club.

He wrote to the the club's chairman and former NI secretary John Reid to complain after IRA songs were sung by fans at a game.

The ardent Rangers fan had been invited to Parkhead after he and his wife were subjected to sectarian abuse on a ferry crossing to Scotland.

Mr Campbell was writing in his capacity as an MP and not sports minister.

Earlier this week, the Irish government raised concerns about sectarian chants by Rangers fans at an Old Firm game.

The East Londonderry MP said he felt Rangers had taken steps since the game to tackle the issue, but demanded more action by Celtic.

He added that he believed visiting Parkhead at present would send out the wrong message.

"If I were to take up the visit now, it may be totally counterproductive given what I have been informed of in recent times," he said.

Mr Campbell said although he was not planning to visit Parkhead, the IRA chants meant any future visit was now less likely.

"It's probably made things a bit worse," he said.

But he insisted he was not "setting preconditions" to visit the football club, but added more action should be taken against the small number of fans involved in the chanting of IRA songs.

General discussion / Some people have nothing better to do

The below is taken from the BBC website. I think all workspaces should be neutral- no war memorials in Council chambers no pictures  of the Enniskillen bomb victims-no GAA flags NOTHING-I bet we won't see Arlene Foster supporting this lady the way she and Lord Humpty Dumpty (Morrow) mouthed of about the picture in Enniskillen fire station


A civil servant has been ordered to remove a Tyrone GAA flag from her car after a complaint from a colleague in Strabane.

The incident happened on Wednesday, when her car was parked at the town's benefits office on Urney Road.

The Social Security Agency said it had taken the decision because of a legal duty to maintain a neutral workplace.

However, Aodhan Harkin, of Sigersons GAA Club in Strabane, said a Tyrone flag was in no way offensive.

"I thought we had started to move on in this country," he said.

"We accept everybody else's cultures but we can't accept our own.

"I think there's something drastically wrong if somebody's offended by a Tyrone flag."

General discussion / Is it legal
« on: July 02, 2008, 03:59:20 PM »
I park in a loyalist area of Belfast (in a private carpark) and have noticed that one of the natives is not only flying the union jack and the Bastardised Red hand flag but also a UDA flag with the "simply the best " logo on the bottom. Is the legal and could it not be seen as giving support to a terrorist organisation. I'm sure if a Fenian hung out a flag with IRA on it-the peelers would have raided the house within minutes!! 

General discussion / All Charges against Brendan McFarlane dropped
« on: June 26, 2008, 03:57:13 PM »
The trial of former IRA leader Brendan McFarlane has collapsed at the Special Criminal Court in Dublin.

The Belfast man had faced charges in connection with the kidnapping of English supermarket executive Don Tidey almost 25 years ago.

The prosecution said it would offer no further evidence after a court ruling that garda evidence was inadmissible.

The court ruled that incriminating statements he allegedly made could not be used in evidence.

Mr McFarlane had denied charges of possession of firearms, intent to endanger life and unlawful imprisonment.

Should action be taken against the garda who told porkies?
