Divis Sweeney BS: Queen honours regiments of shame. (70* d) RE: BS: Queen honours regiments of shame. 08 Oct 06


My problem was the fact they honoured the regiment. Over here even some protestant friends of mine thought it lacked tact. As I said the 11th UDR/RIR came from my area and were the worst the regiment had to offer, they got the barracks visit from Prince Andrew and also were on the guard of honour. I would imagine if I arrived here and told you I had just received a scroll or medal from Provisional Oglaigh na h-Eireann I doubt "my friends" here would be telling me to have a drink on them.

I see today now unionists are suspicious about the award on Friday and said every time the Queen comes over and pats them on the back, a few weeks later the bad news comes knocking on their door. This could well be the case.

As you are all aware the DUP said the cannot sit with Sinn Fein in government as long as they won't accept policing. They may well have to find another excuse shortly.
