I have as much disdain for RDE as the next man but I can't believe Jude thought this would be a good idea. If the Newsletter did it about Michelle O'Neill or Mary Lou there'd be war and rightfully so.

Jude is a hired gun so I doubt he decided to do it off his own bat

Correct - he's on the payroll, similar to Chris Donnelly.

Great political analysis  ::)

RDE wrote a piece slating Jude during the week. This appears to be a personal riposte.

Jude Collins, a man who things Patsy Gillespie deserved to be strapped to his own van, forced to drive to an army checkpoint while his family were held at gunpoint and then blown up.

Jude Collins is a nasty human being who will not be missed.

He didn't say that.

Yes he did.

That may be so. But I stand over my analysis of him. An awful person.

I could have written that with one sentence

Ruth Dudley Edwards is a Cnut.
I’d like to second that. Through the chair, of course.

RDE

THE Conor Cruise of the 21st century

And as far as I recall, while he tried to cuddle up to them the unionists of the day jettisoned him out of their sheer bigotry.

How on earth is any of what you've described comparable?

Insulting someone because of their political views.

Pantomime fun time. ' oh no he didn't  '.

As for RDE, just a sad irrelevant nobody.

Michelle O'Neill, Mary Lou or even Arlene Foster have political views, but they also have to make some effort to put forward a plan to achieve their political objectives. The likes of RDE just snipes from the sideline, never putting forward solutions, only sneers. However, someone else sneering at her isn't really a step forward either.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Gow told the diplomat that he had no “spark of hope” that he could get any of the unionist leaders to “show any courage or leadership”.
“They are all awful,” he said.

Now they are even worse

Why give Dudley Edwards any more attention than she already craves. Her views are backward and bigoted but they are best ignored rather than give her the oxygen of publicity.

I would be in favour of cutting off all types of Oxygen. A one dimensional prehistoric waste of space.

And Ruth Dudley Edwards is not much better.

Jude Collins isn't a newspaper.

RDE isn't an elected representative.

and Gow was about as pro unionist as anyone in the Tory Party.

Correct, he had the cheek to suggest unionism should consider a united ireland as a way to undermine sinn fein. He got a swift boot out for that.
