I have been further arrested on two separate occasions for public expresion of "bollocks" and "blair". Both cases were dropped on the date of trial under somewhat convenient circumstances, the CPS offering no evidence. The first case was dropped the week the Sex Pistols released their 3oth anniversay edition of the album "Never Mind the Bollocks - Here's the Sex Pistols". The second case was to be attended by Lady mary Warnock, picking up the torch of common sense from Professor Kingsley and QC John Mortimer who valiantly defended our right to use that Saxon Age old word of bollocks.

Will someone - anyone - ask the Irish government to get it's story straight on the Passports used by Mossad to kill a Hamas leader in Dubai? And how much did they know, and when, and are they just "going through the motions" with reactions "more smoke than fire" with the Israeli Ambassador? On Wed. February 17 the Irish government says they were fakes, and there were no record of such passports. Then the next day, they said they were fakes - but because the passports were in the hands of Irish citizens. Bear in mind: it is possible to secure a genuine passport through nefarious means - so were they genuine, or actual forgeries? The Dubai police and international experts say they are real - the only thing the Irish side has been consistent on is saying "fake". read full story / add a comment

On the 61st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. - (UDHR)
I quote Oscar wilde more than all the others; he more than anyone would have appreciated

this charter . It is just that it is not binding .it is not a law. It is aspirational ; but it is

inspirational . You don’t need to read it through. The language is turgid in places. Its meant to

endure . After 60 years the wording may seem esoteric .but if you re read it , ask yourself ;

how else could this be written to relate to all society.
I believe it is written for all the children of the womb of the Universe .
But , I will confess that I quote Oscar not only because he is one of the most quoted people in

the history of English language .

Last month in it's 22ND report, the Independent Monitoring Commission (IMC) alleged that Concerned Families Against Drugs (CFAD) were, 'a vigilante group who was responsible for a number of punishment shootings and pipe-bombings of suspected Drug Dealers' in the North Belfast area.
Although, we were surprised and dismayed at these unfounded allegations, given that the IMC had not contacted CFAD before issuing its report. CFAD complained to the IMC through our legal representative and were subsequently invited to meet with the IMC today (8/12/09).

Throughout the past year or so, CFAD has taken a large amount of dangerous narcotics off the streets, highlighted the scourge of drugs in working-class communities and exposed dozens of drug barons to the wider public. Our record speaks for itself and people who live in Nationalist areas of North Belfast know only too well, the positive impact our anti-drug campaign has had.

“Earlier today a Republican Network for Unity Ard Comhairle delegation, returning from a series of meetings in Glasgow, was detained at Belfast International Airport arrivals by a group of approximately twenty (20) uniformed and plain clothed RUC/PSNI members. As one an Ard Comhairle member from Derry was being questioned, the plain clothed RUC/PSNI man menacingly told him that he was well aware of the make up of the individual’s family and of the details and names of his children. The same plain clothed RUC/PSNI man then inquired if he had any information on those he was travelling with and/or of the RNU in general.
