The Little Red Book. The Conservatives and China

                          I watched the"experts" on the view BBC programme musing about John McDonald producing Mao`s little red book.  It was not a show of Labour communism as some seemed to think.
Quite the opposite!  The purpose of producing the Little Red Book was to show up the Conservatives and their links with China building the new nuclear power plants etc.  Yet again the self appointed experts got it wrong.  It was not a big Labour mistake. It was intentional swipe at the Conservatives links with China.

Marks and Spencer leaves Northern Ireland out of their xmas cake. Is it time for a boycott?

                    Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK not included in the Marks and Spencer Xmas cake.  Will you be buying one? I certainly wont be.   Is it time for a province wide boycott of Marks and Spencer by unionists?  Not a word from the DUP!

Trident submarines in Northern Ireland?

                   The suggestion by DUP  MP Jeffrey Donaldson that we in Northern Ireland could take the Trident nuclear submarines if required is an excellent suggestion.  However we should not wait until the SNP decide to reject Trident and the Scots vote for independence.  We should tell the Prime Minister NOW that we will take them NOW.  By us taking them NOW the SNP party would be completely neutered.  They would have nothing to grip about. Their favourite political ploy would be no more in Scotland. It would be a boon for the government and Northern Ireland would benefit to the tune of at least 10 000 jobs.  The union would be strengthened.   Northern Ireland has plenty of experience of building and looking after ships.  We are a seafaring country.

          Mr Corbyn: you are wrong.  Are people like Mr Corbyn and some Irish nationalists telling us that if North Korea landed a nuclear weapon in London, in Edinburgh or in Belfast that we should just sit there and take it?   The whole point about a nuclear deterrent is it "deters".  It makes countries like North Korea think twice before they decide to fire a nuclear weapon, that they might just get one back in double quick time!

Life and Death in Northern Ireland. MLAs please take note!

                Amid the political euphoria about yet another fresh start in political life in Northern Ireland there is a matter of life and death that the political elite and indeed the Northern Ireland press have yet to resolve.  The little matter of forty cancer drugs(yes forty!) that are available in England but not in Northern Ireland.  People are dying in Northern Ireland as a consequence of this neglect so what are the politicians at Stormont going to do about it?   A matter of life and death far more important than any political "deal".   Lets us see where there priorities lie?  As long as we remain part of the UK the people of Northern Ireland are fully entitled to access to these drugs.   It is a fundamental matter of human rights and a matter of life and death so Stormont politicians act and act now!

The National Anthem

                   The point that is missed regarding the playing of the National Anthem during the Armistist day commemoration service is that the playing of the National Anthem should have been on the programme from the start.  One must ask why it was not?   Surely it is the responsibility of the Secretary of State to ensure that Her Majesty is given due respect by the playing of the National Anthem.   It should have been on  the order of service from the beginning.  There is no use the Alliance Party sniping along with some unionists.  The DUP and the UUP should have insisted it was on the order of service.  Personally it would make one stop voting for these parties.  Both the DUP and the UUP need to ask themselves  if they are really unionist?
