Straight outta Kilkeel.. (Politics)

Ok, for those reading in the future, hello future people, I hope i'm not dead, if I am - I don't really know where i'm going with this but here's an introduction so you know what im talking about

Martin Connolly has refused to condemn the bomb scare on his neice who works for the police. A bomb scare that had the scroog road and other parks evacuated

Now, let it be known I have never been a fan of Martin Connolly but this is just complete bull, and here's why

  1. Ok, I always believe in standing up for your rights, I prefer someone who can say something to a room full of people with the opposite view respectfully than I do someone who would agree to conform to the crowd. BUT THIS IS BULLSHIT. Yes I know "My forefathers died for this cause etc etc", and if you want to write in saying "If they tried to blow me up, that's dead on", yes it is dead on, condemning the people unfortunate enough to have anything to do with your scumbag persona is a different thing. Your neice is trying to make this a more peaceful place for everyone to live, something you as a counceller should be doing also..
  2. Think of the Children: I remember when I used to work with youth work a man who i'll leave un named said the following to me
"I was doing an activity with this group of kids, and, admittidly the girl was ditsy, but she said "What's a bomb scare", and that is one of the greatest revelations i've had as a youth worker that this place is improving"
That's sort of always stuck with me, and come on, anyone can say as a child if they had to be evacuated from a bomb, it'd fuck them up for weeks, months even possibly years, I know if I had to be evacuated tonight I wouldn't feel properly safe in my house for a long time

What i'm basically pointing out is, I can speak for a lot of people when we say we dont give a fuck and don't want the troubles back. And this isn't helping, and when the men in office are slagging eachother over social networking sites or coming to the paper saying it's dead on if more bloodshed is spilled over this abomination of a civil war, it's not helping, in any way.

What i'm basically saying is, wise the fuck up, I don't want my Generation paying for the last fews fuck ups
