Jimmy C BS: PIRA Invests In Manchester (103* d) RE: BS: PIRA Invests In Manchester 07 Oct 05


Pied Piper and Clogger,
If the bombs had not gone off in mainland England would you have had any interest in what was happening on the streets of Ireland ?. You all just don't get it. we were left unnoticed, abandoned and subjected to bigotry, insults, and discrimination both in jobs and housing by an anti-catholic and anti-irish political system for nearly half a century. This all happened under the noses of OUR GOVERNMENT Nobody cared and nobody gave a damn, as long as the killings were in Ireland it was passed over just like the sports section in a local paper. The only way to get the attention of the Westminister government was to take it to their own doorstep. It is heartbreaking that children had to die, it's sad that anyone had o die, nobody in the world wants these things to happen, especially to the young, but children were dying in Ireland and we did not hear too many complaints from across the pond. Pay heed to what Divis said, every word is true.
By the way, what happened about that big bank robbery anyway - NOTHING. IT just vanished off the front pages as fast as it appeared. Nobody charged, no real proof of who was responsible, just insinuations. Of course the front pages were required to report the McCartney killing, yet the Jim Gray murder was reported on page 56 of my morning paper under items from around the world.
There was a parallel thread about some mudcatters being anti-irish, now where would one get such an idea ?.
