Time to Neutralise the HIU

BY JAMIE FOSTER Senior Tories are demanding that Boris Johnson cut the powers of a historic investigations unit (HIU) as part of his deal to get power sharing back on at Stormont. The unit is tasked with investigating the deaths caused by the British Army during the troubles. There are real concerns that the unit will investigate all 302 deaths caused during the period. Tory … Continue reading Time to Neutralise the HIU

The Folly of Focusing on Europe

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN We have learnt a great deal about our friends in Europe in recent weeks. France wants to plunder our fish, Brussels wants to command our army, while Spain wants to grab our land. The current government in Dublin, albeit increasingly rattled, cares far more for the EU than the UK. No wonder a growing portion of the British people – exhausted by … Continue reading The Folly of Focusing on Europe

Down the Remoan Hole

Seeing Through the EU’s Irish Trap

BY ANDREW KELLY Among all the failures of the disgraceful capitulation of the UK PM’s deal, no doubt the biggest was accepting that the Eire/Ulster issue is the UK’s problem to solve. This was a trap set by the EU that our (useless) negotiators willingly entered and is now the central complication in an apparently intractable problem (for the UK to solve). As an aside, … Continue reading Seeing Through the EU’s Irish Trap

While Brexit negotiations are important, by far the greatest threat to the United Kingdom – aside from a no deal Brexit or hordes engaged in street unrest following a failure to deliver Brexit – is Corbyn. That’s … Continue reading God Bless the DUP

Celebrating Abortion is Repellent

CSM EDITORIAL The sight of pro-abortion activists partying after winning the referendum in Ireland on Saturday somewhat jars. Apparently, according to The Guardian, pro-abortion Irish emigrant activists in Australia were “in tears” and jubilant at the result. Amnesty International hailing the result as a “momentous win for women’s rights” that “marks the beginning of a new Ireland” is just about passable. Whether it is the right … Continue reading Celebrating Abortion is Repellent

RTÉ – Really Tiresome Emissions

BY EAMONN O’MAHONY If you thought you Brits had it bad paying out £147 a year for your TV licence, then think about us poor Irish who pay out €160 a year for our own poll tax imposed on anyone who watches the telly. We face a similar Stasi inspectorate and bailiffs, similar court appearances and jail sentences if we fail to cough up. Statistics … Continue reading RTÉ – Really Tiresome Emissions
