Ireland FreeEyes of Nostrodamus (7.1.2006, 00:06 UTC)
Ireland Free refuses to grovel to Unionism. Its pretty clear now that the DUP will never share power with Sinn Fein, as long as arch-bigot Paisley is at the helm.We're all waiting for the old cunt to die, and roast at the spit down below.As a Republican hard-liner, IRA Volunteer, ( take me to court if you want to )I never wanted to share power with these arseholes anyway. They belong on their knees.There is good news, but it may sound nuts, I've looked into the future through my crystal ba...

That's my major.It occured to me last night what was behind the smoke-screen of unionist refusal to share power with nationalists. I thought it was all about sulking, but its deeper than that, and here's a gem.Unionists promote the lie that terrorism is all about the IRA , and that's why they won't do business with Sinn Fein....

Ireland FreeTime to end stalling by unionists (1.1.2006, 15:39 UTC)
Unionist stalling over power-sharing goes back much further than the past three years. It figured prominently as one of the main issues in the State Papers released this week concerning the events of 1975.The convention set up then collapsed over power-sharing and the Irish dimension. During the 1980s, Ian Paisley led the ultimately futile resistance to the Irish dimension that was fundamental to the Hillsborough Agreement. Not only the people of the island as a whole, but along with them the v...
