Serious questions need to be asked why they had 8 biomass boilers in that shed, what was their purpose? Forgive cynical old me but there can be only one reason #ashforcash.

I doubt whether Gerald is a DUP donor mind you!

I wouldn't have thought so either but what does it matter who or what he is. Doesn't make it any less wrong if he is a DUP donor or not. I'd like to know what required so much heat that he needed 8 boilers.

You're right. I was being a wee bit tongue in cheek

Relatively small shed, 20m x 12m, for so much heat.

Of course there are.  The timeline for applications would show that the earliest and possibly greatest number of applications came from one side and the others caught on and caught up later.

It is within the culture of this country to get all you can get for free from the state, as they say, it's coming off a strong back.

I'm sorry TYP, but someone who votes for a party which clearly states that they are not unionist, and who's only MEP has declared that she would vote for a UI given the choice cannot be considered a unionist.  No matter how many times you repeat it and no matter how much you'd like it to be so.

You might want to read these articles to see that Alliance is a party which supports the Union but does not believe that MLAs should be designated by nationalist or unionist.

https://sluggerotoole.com/2013/09/22/alliance-party-is-it-really-the-belfast-party/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alliance_Party_of_Northern_Ireland#MPs

It could also link to the discussion on the Rory McIlroy thread.

A slugger opinion piece (which is VERY light on the content you said it contained) and a wiki article prove nothing.  I could throw up an article where Anna Lo said she'd vote for a UI if you want?  Would that prove they are a Nationalist party?  No matter how much you want to make it so, the Alliance Party are not unionist.  Not in word, deed and most importantly (for the point you were making), in Electoral Commission designation.  It's just a fact.

And why not? They will screw you at every opportunity, so why not screw them every chance you get?

Eight biomass boilers destroyed in Fermanagh shed fire

EIGHT biomass boilers and 14 tonnes of woodchip have been destroyed in a fire at a Co Fermanagh construction firm.

Fire crews from Enniskillen, Irvinestown and Lisnaskea fought the large fire for almost six hours in the early hours of last Friday.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said on Tuesday that investigations were continuing and it was unable to confirm the cause of the blaze.

A fire service spokesman said it received a call at 2.45am to attend the fire in the Magheradunbar area outside Enniskillen.

“A shed, approximately 20m x 12m, was on fire and contained approximately 14 tonnes of woodchip and eight boilers," he said.

"Firefighters worked to extinguish the fire, however a large quantity of woodchip and the eight boilers were destroyed in the fire. The shed was badly damaged."

“The incident was finished at 8.47am. The cause of the fire is under investigation," the spokesman added.

It is not clear when the eight boilers were installed and whether they had been operating with subsidies from the botched Renewable Heating Incentive scheme.

The PSNI confirmed it received a report from the fire service in relation to the fire, but that there was "no requirement for police to attend".

The fire occurred on premises of Gerald Love Contracts - a family-run business which specialises in projects relating to road surfacing, civil engineering and general construction according to the company website.

The company failed to respond to number of requests for comment both on Monday and Tuesday in relation to the fire

8 boilers in a shed in Fermanagh would usually mean a brothel.... ;)

Turns out legislation is in place for mitigating measures for the bedroom tax.


Another OG by Paul Givan claiming the legislation wasn't passed in time.

Talk about shutting the door after the horse has bolted with this inquiry call :D :D

Arlene comes across as one of those incompetent managers who is always fire fighting, never proactive, always appearing busy to do anything for you, snappy if you ask them anything and like the incredible hulk if you point the finger.

Listen lads, when the snow comes tomorrow, Fermanagh will be a green island in the desolate whiteness. Arlene has ensured a warm feeling throughout her constituency.

She gave her main interview this week to the Impartial Reporter.
Very provincial.  She refused an inquiry and only yielded when it was too late. Very shortsighted.
And she had to apologise to La Mon.....

Clearly it's too late to avoid the collapse of the assembly but now that Arlene is gone, I really do not understand why SF would not now let an independent and public investigation into the RHI go ahead.  Surely there could have been a reasonable investigation that was not being dictated by the DUP. What have they got to lose?  Arlene is trying to take the moral high ground and by not letting it go ahead SF are leaving themselves open to accusation of wasting money in the meantime and having something to hide themselves.  Arlene will throw it up at every opportunity now. 

And another thing, why are SF so intransigent about going to an election without even any effort of talks in advance?  its not as if the main players in talks post an election are likely to change dramatically as a result of such an election.  Are they just themselves a bit of time ?

I don't think either SF or DUP have come out of the last few weeks with any great credit.  If the SDLP and UUP cannot make some hay out of all of this, they will never come back.
