I still believe that Brexit will not happen

Yesterday’s announcement by Theresa May triggering Brexit marks the end of the phoney war.

In the early seventies, fifty years of Unionist rule was humbled and humiliated across the world.

Brexit is another thing to add to the list of BBC bias

Irish, which is promoted a by a politicised language lobby, according to Clifford Smyth

An Irish language act is unfair

At one time I was Development Officer for the Ulster-Scots Language Society. However, the linguistically-dense poetry of contemporary writers James Fenton and Philip Robinson was beyond my capabilities.

Give the Irish language the justice it deserves

The proposed setting up of an Irish language act in Northern Ireland should be fast tracked and implemented without due delay.

Churches and clergy should be at forefront of getting justice for victims

Churches should speak for victims

It amazes me how that the churches can laud Martin McGuinness as a great man after the murder and mayhem that he and his IRA terrorists committed and have never even said sorry.

So we have Sinn Fein holding Northern Ireland to ransom again with their insatiable demands and showing they are not fit for government.

Foster’s role added to the pressure on her to attend funeral

I understand the feelings of victims who have not been given the same attention as those who made them such; however I think we need to understand that once in state leadership there are role pressures that may not be in the small print of political agreements but left to the individual’s decision.

Foster attendance at McGuinness mass was wrong

Foster attendance at McGuinness mass was wrong

News that Arlene Foster has attended requiem mass for Martin McGuinness raises an obvious question: Do DUP’s members, supporters and elected representatives agree with Arlene Foster attending requiem mass for an unrepentant terrorist?

Now that the worship of Martin McGuinness for the present seems to have died down slightly, may I make a few remarks on his fate as a Bible believing Christian.

A young Martin McGuinness

McGuinness was a hardened terrorist in a cowardly campaign of violence

One should not speak ill of the dead, but let their deeds speak for them is an old adage (see Shakespeare on Julius Caesar).

Protestants suffered discrimination as well as Catholics

Paul Doran of Dublin writes (March 22) that he was “reared” in Co Down and heard from his parents – and if that was not enough to prove his claim he himself further witnessed – the bullying by the “British government” and its unionist henchmen and women, whom we might assume were Protestant.

No difference in terrrorist attacks past or present

The terrorist attack claimed by Islamic state in the city of London outside the Houses of Parliament, which claimed the lives of civilians and a police officer and the terrorist shot dead by the police, was a harsh reminder of the carnage and suffering such attacks inflict upon innocent civilians going about their daily business.

I like many thousands of victims are experiencing difficult emotions surrounding the passing of Martin McGuinness.
