Sunday and the Week’s Media Stupid Statements August 18, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Have to repeat former BLP MP, Gisela Stuart’s, ringing declaration from the Guardian:

It was wrong to label as “extremist” anyone who suggested that if the UK and the EU could not reach an agreement we should leave in any case. Just as it is wrong now to imply that the only way of avoiding no deal is for the UK to not leave the EU after all.

And how about this for hyperbole?

Ultimately Jack Lynch prevailed in August 1969 [by not sanctioning military intervention] but only just. His opponents shifted their focus in the following months to channelling money and arms to the emerging Provisional IRA. That led to the arms crisis and the sacking of Blaney and Haughey but the truly dangerous moment for the stability of this State came in August 1969. If Lynch had not prevailed it is doubtful if we could have followed the road to membership of the European Union and the creation of the prosperous and outward-looking State we have today.

Isn’t Collins woeful? I mean all this because the those people up north couldn’t just shut up or put up… he must have a deep-seated hatred of northern nationalists

And isn’t there a school of thought that Lynch was up to his neck in the whole business, had given Haughey and Blaney the nod, and then ran for cover when it all blew up in their faces?

Revisionsts will not tell you that Goulding called for an invasion at that time “or give us the guns to do the job”.Also I saw only yesterday a clip of Ciaran McKeown(of peace people fame)calling for an invasion of the North also.

“I saw only yesterday a clip of Ciaran McKeown(of peace people fame)calling for an invasion of the North also.”

Is this clip available online?
