    I agree. Out of respect for the horrors of that dreadful night (which I saw and vividly remember) it should be turned into a facility that families can enjoy. Apartments would be completely inappropriate.

    How is this local news?!

    Tourists not wanted round here!!!

    I think 9pm is the limit for kids to be pubs. It even became the law in Ireland I believe (but not enough Garda in the rural areas now to enforce it!).
  4. There is no god! When will prople come to their senses in this day and age and realise that all religions are a scam?! I despair at some peoople’s intelligence Remove the charitable status afforded to religious groups!!

    These are the MHK's who voted to keep the Bishop in Legco - it needs people to contact them, berate them for their decision and ask for another vote (except Anderson - good riddance!) The time is right! Mr Baker, Mr Boot, Mr Callister, Mr Cannan, Mr Cregeen, Mr Harmer, Mr Malarkey, Mr Moorhouse, Mr Perkins, Mr Quayle, Mr Robertshaw, Mr Skelly, Mr Watterson, Mr Anderson, Mr Coleman, Mr Corkish, Mr Crookall, Mr Henderson all voted for Bishop’s vote to remain. Surprised about Malarkey, Perkins and Henderson though - I thought they were more progressive

    Royal Wedding

    I watched the highlights programme - lovely except for the ceremony itself with its endless religious mumbo jumbo!

    Sisters Are Doin It For Themselves!

    I’m optimistic - all the newly elected MLC’s have stated that they’re pro choice on the abortion reform issue, plus (for the first time ever!) I felt proud of our MHKs when they supported Alex Allinson’s bill (with a few exceptions!)

    I listened to the whole debate whilst doing other things. If I'd been there I'd have definitely been on my iPad a lot - Robertshaw, Baker, Quayle and some others just waffle on and on after making their point. Dr Alex was brilliant - don't know how he managed to maintain his composure when having to explaining his reasoning again and again. Malarkey couldn't - shouted out over some idiot's ramblings 'This is about women's choices' - he's shot up in my estimation!

    Lord Brennan is also a leading Catholic too!

    Completely agree. However on MR news recently there has been some very biased reporting on the abortion reform issue with pro-lifers being given air time to express their views without challenge. Yesterday for example some woman called Joss or Jess stated that abortion was murder from the moment of conception and that late term abortions were included in the abortion reform bill for 'no particular reason', which was a downright lie and went unchallenged.. Today Lord Brennan QC was given free rein to waffle on about his concerns, but no mention was made of his high ranking position in the Catholic church and the trust he set up to further religious advancement.! Surely there must be a code of ethics for broadcasters regarding biased reporting?!

    Get well soon - lovely though she is Beth definitely doesn't play devil's advocate and Andy Wint just annoys me. Every time I hear his name it remonds me of all the people who went to the trouble of sending him photos and other contributions for his book, which still hasn't materialised. If he just announced that it was too mammoth a task and will never see the light of day I'd have more respect for him. Hurry up back please!

    PS Beecroft was absent - not well again?
  14. Snaipyr


    Yes, along with Graham Cregeen, Chris Robertshaw, Juan Watterson and Tim Baker (whoever he is - not heard of him before!) Our MHK’s don’t often get much praise but I think they deserved it today (apart from the aforementioned!).

    Absolute garbage! What’s the matter with you?!
