See Barry Mcelduff back in the game.

Jobs for the boys. Keep the gravy train running. Choo, Choo!!


Yeah. They are all soooo wealthy. Ching ching.

He had no case to answer according to the prosecution service, yet stood down. Whereas the DUP...

Not quite right, PPS took a decision not to prosecute based on the probability of achieving a conviction, not confirmation of innocence.

Not quite,  CPS "there was insufficient evidence to provide a reasonable prospect of convicting"
 
In fact, there was little or no evidence to support that he deliberately intended to cause offence, which is the foundation of any charge.
In this instance, insufficient evidence could well mean zilch, nada The presumption of innocence stands, as utter stupidity is not in itself evidence of malice.

Personally think it was bollocks that he had to resign in the first place. He made a genuine mistake. Interesting someone raised on another thread about politicians qualifications for the job. What's Barry's background? Is he a career politician?

He’ll be accused of being part of a Pan Nationalist Front anyway.

McElduff is a clown and not the sort of politician SF should be promoting. He is however very popular in the Carrickmore area. Having said all that when you look at what the DUP have brazened out he probably shouldn't have resigned and in doing so showed some integrity. There is also very definitely one type of victim in unionist eyes and it is not on the nationalist side.

Ivor Bell unfit for trial over Jean McConville murder

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-46626092

Veteran republican Ivor Bell is unfit to stand trial over one of the most high-profile murders of the Troubles, a judge has ruled.

The IRA kidnapped mother-of-10 Jean McConville from her home in the Divis flats in west Belfast in 1972.

She was shot and buried, becoming one of the Troubles' Disappeared.

On Tuesday, a judge at Belfast Crown Court, sitting at the High Court, made his decision on Mr Bell in accordance with mental health legislation.

With the criminal proceedings against him halted, a non-criminal procedure - known as a trial of the facts - will take place before a jury in the new year.

It will determine whether Mr Bell had any involvement in Mrs McConville's murder.

Mr Bell, 82, from west Belfast, was charged with encouraging persons to murder Mrs McConville and endeavouring to persuade persons to murder her.

The prosecution case is based on tapes from a history archive of the Troubles that was collected by Boston College in the United States.

It is alleged that one of the interviewees on the tapes - an individual referred to as Z - is Mr Bell.

Mrs McConville's remains were found on Shelling Hill beach in County Louth by a member of the public in August 2003.

Nobody has been convicted of her murder.

Tóibín reckons 30-40% of northern SF voters have difficulties with the party's stance on abortion, whereas in the south it's "a healthy third".
Will be interesting to see if many of them stay at home on election day.

An awful lot of them must have stayed at home  on Presidential election day.
Or else voted for MD.

People could just not vote, but unless Toibin gets going in a lot of constituencies there is no other candidate that is not promoting abortion.
