Divis Sweeney BS: Queen honours regiments of shame. (70* d) RE: BS: Queen honours regiments of shame. 07 Oct 06


Very well put Mick, yes some true colours already have been displayed.

11 UDR/RIR (Mahon Barracks Portadown) did the guard of honour. This was the barracks where those who killed the Miami Showband (In uniform and on duty,used their Landrovers to set up a road block to stop them) and those responsible for Dublin and Monaghan bombs were based. As was "The Jackal" their ranked comrade.

I do understand and accept the professional soldiers within the British army receiving the campaign service bar to their G.S.M.for tours of duty in the North of Ireland. It is posted out to the individual.

Yesterdays display lacked sensitivity, doesn't make our job any easier. Recently at a meeting in the Dublin City West hotel an ex volunteer asked Gerry Adams if he would suggest to the disbanded army council raising funds to honour ex volunteers with a badge or medal ? His reply was a firm NO. he said can you imagine the message that would sent out to people.


People within republican circles are working their ass off right now, believe me to get dissidents and disillusioned on board only to get this thrown into their faces.

As to hide behind (Guest "sick of it") stay out of debates you can't contribute to. Do you know the UDR/RIR ?

What the hell do some people want ? we are getting it in the neck for wanting peace from a small number over here, that medal and hand shake yesterday didn't help and views here are speaking volumes.
