Charting Labour meltdown 2007-2010

The terrorists failed big time

The UK security forces, although they sustained big losses, beat the IRA by containing them and forcing the Sinners down a political route.

The dissident Real IRA and Continuity IRA (my predictive texting tries to give me Iran or Irritation – quite appropriate) have tried to cause division and bring down the Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly.

By killing 2 soldiers (a Brummie and a Turkish Cypriot Londoner) and a Catholic policeman and injuring two Catholic pizza delivery men, the terrorists have brought us together and engendered trust between Protestants like me and our Catholic brothers and sisters, not divided us. We’ve been through this together before, after all.

RIRA and CIRA have failed, and they should crawl back into the gutter they squirmed out of.
