Hey, this is 1969 all over again. They will have to bring in the British Army to protect Catholics. Well, protect Alliance anyway who have apparently sold their soul to Eamon De Valera and his cohorts.

Did I ever tell you that (contrary to popular belief) the IRA didn't start the troubles?

It is really getting to be a bit of a joke now. The DUP and UUP must shoulder a lot of the blame for this, how many times through the years have they stoked up bitterness without the will or ability to stop the violence when it starts. And to be very honest some of the PSNI actions have been nothing short of baffling. I still cant understand how these protestors are getting access to areas in which they know will cause trouble.

Just walked past a load of hoods putting tricolours up on the ormeau bridge where there was a protest earlier on. That should end well.

It all augurs well for imminent reunification.

tbh with the other side fighting each other It doesn't cause me sleepless nights but the most frustrating thing about all this as some have already pointed out is the Catholic lads would have been pumped full of lead and left like swiss cheese if they had have done some of these crimes. To even think we'd have been allowed to carry out a protest and block the city centre and other major routes is laughable. ..the fenians would have been beat stupid long before they got a chance to take their flags out.

Where is Evil Genius?

A few pages ago he clearly said what he thought of these protesters and it was along the same lines as everyone else so why is everyone looking for him to come on again and say the same.

Tricky one for the cops. If they wail in with batons and plastic bullets it will escalate the situation but letting it go as is looks very bad too. Dammed if they do and dammed if they don't.

Must of missed that. He usually gets really involved in such topics, just seemed suprisingly quite is all. Fair enough if he has already commented.

Using reasonable force to protect people and property would be considered the minimum requirement so if it is true they stood by and allowed Rafferty's to be attacked for fear or reprisals then they arent doing their job imo.. It is people above the street cops that decide where these tramps can protest.

David Beckham Set Alight by Rioters For Not Wearing British Flag


Future Finn Harps Player David Beckham has been set ablaze by bigots angry at the footballer for wrapping himself in the Stars and Stripes rather than the Union Jack.

After his farewell appearance for LA Galaxy Bar, in which he won some cup or other,  Beckham wrapped himself in the American flag made famous by Bruce Sprignsteen in 1985.

Beckham, who is British, angered many people in Belfast with his decision not to wear the appropriate flag, so he was turned over and set alight.

It is believed that the damage caused to Beckham will cost in the region of $400,000. He is expected  to return to full fitness to play in Finn Harpsí first game of the season.
