    Religious reward

    Post by Mcqueen on Tue 15 Aug 2017 - 20:03

    12 dead as a 200 year old tree fell on a Religious Festival on Madeira well if that isnt a sign i dont know what is,    
    Meanwhile one of my neighbours had his triple bypass this morning after just returning from Kenya doing what good Christians do with their spare time and cash,
    I saw his daughter the other day and asked how he was, Oh they cancelled his opp because the one before went tits up, she said that was the lords way of giving him a rest before they do his, poppy cock i said and walked off shaking my head, stupid girl,

    Watching India/Pakistan partition - Just seen Nehru on there he was a friend of Jim's dads and asked him to go to India and set up an engineering school.  Needless to say they never got there because J's mum said I'm not going to live with all those bloody call-centre types.  Anyway, it seems Nehru was having it away with Mountbatten's Mrs.

    No wonder Mountbatten wanted to wrap things up so quick

    And, as far as I remember, they detonated the bomb while in sight of the boat, so they knew the wee lad was in it. And, chief of staff of IRA said in later years, that had they known Mountbatten was very much for a united Ireland, then, things may have turned out differently. Well, I'm sorry, but no matter what the views of Mountbatten were, if you are prepared to trigger a bomb when you know full well that a completely innocent boy was on board ( he was there on his holidays and Mountbatten offered him a job ( probably was just being nice to the kid) on the boat), then you still pressed the button, then, they deserve nothing but contempt ( and a firing squad). As Cam said, the IRA never had much traction in Ireland, but it decreased significantly after that.

    Some of the low life got a firing squad [not officially] they didn't merit a trial in my book.

    Much as I think that GB has no hand act or part to play in Ireland, I can't disagree with that Bill. Live by the sword, die by the sword. That probably isn't quite the right way of putting it, but you know what I mean.

    happened on occasion. It was always suspected that there was a shoot to kill policy by the British Army. Couldnt understand why any army would point a gun at someone, pull the trigger and not try to kill them.

    Most normal people i know look at all this fighting all over the world and think WTF, pack it in
    when Ireland was on the TV showing cars ablaze, dead bodies all over it just seemed like complete madness, I do not pretend to know all the in's and out's of politics, just seems a complete waste of time ,money, and life, I do not think whatever it is has gone away but the lid is on it, for now
