Witless and Unbalanced have warned that Britain could face a ?prolonged period? of excess deaths due to the collateral damage caused by the lockdowns. No, really? Who could have possibly predicted that?!?

According to a leaked Russian government opinion poll, popular support for the war in Ukraine is beginning to weaken. Twenty-five per cent of respondents want the war to continue vs 55% who want a negotiated settlement.

The demand for an end to the ban on on-shore wind farms is bizarre. As Matt Ridley points out in the Spectator, they?re not banned and the energy they produce is expensive and makes gas more expensive, not less.

It's hard to make sense of a policy that spends billions on lockdowns to 'save lives' while also assisting many of the same people to commit suicide.

A simplistic use of 'herd immunity' led to fanciful claims that COVID-19 would disappear once 60% of the population was vaccinated. But is there a dark side to aiming at 'herd immunity' through vaccines?

RSF Congratulate People of Craigavon for Resisting Crown Forces

category armagh | miscellaneous | press release author Tuesday August 26, 2008 22:14author by Richard Walsh - Republican Sinn Féin Report this post to the editors

RSF have congratulated the Nationally-minded people of North Armagh for resisting the RUC and British Crown Forces.

Republican Sinn Féin have congratulated the people of Craigavon for their resistance to Crown Forces who had saturated the area.

Director of Publicity, Richard Walsh, said: “Nationally-minded people in Craigavon have shown that they are neither purchased nor intimidated. They are to be congratulated for all manner of resistance which they have offered to the British Crown Forces in Brownlow, Tullygally and Drumbeg following RUC incursions into the areas.

“Of course the likes of John O'Dowd and Dolores Kelly have once again been quick to side with the Crown Forces in their ongoing assault on the people of North Armagh, and indeed ultimately on the Irish people. Their efforts would be better channelled into demanding a full British withdrawal from Ireland.”

That's a good point.

The sudden upsurge in violent "republican" activity is certainly linked to the deal though.

The dissident groups have been infiltrated by informers and security service handlers for years as the record shows. When shots are fired at a police van you only have to ask who has most to gain from this to see that those opposed to the handover of powers on policing are obviously at work.

As Fred's comment shows, the man in the street can't tell the difference between mainstream republicans and these groups, so their actions are calculated to impact on the process of power sharing.

Whoever loaded that gun the other night did not want to see policing and justice powers given to the assembly. It might seem that the two groups most opposed to that are British Intelligence and the dissident Republicans, but they probably share more in common than is widely thought.

Hate to be the one to have to break the news to you Fred, but they are two completely different organisations, not two "hands" of the same entity.

Throwing us all back thirty years, this 'congratulations' for non co-operation with the 'security forces' while a deal is being worked out at Stormont about policing seems rather at odds. It's as if one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Or care.

I've lived in Craigavon 41 years, and I was just thinking the other day what was missing was a few more burnt out cars and other such debris across the roads.
My five year old grandson was ever so excited when he had to lay down in the back of my car for fear of the windows being put in as I tried to drive passed Drumbeg (Not a police car in sight by the way, obvioulsy I was just target practice)
You might want to congratulate the people of Craigavon for standing up for themselves, does it have to entail trashing our own areas and attacking their own nieghbours.
