A Slippery Slope into Archaic Anarchic Rule with Reigns and Reins of Terror
“The threat of violence in NI is very real.”
I’m afraid you’re right. I spent 14 years dealing with some of the consequences back in the ’70s & ’80s. Unfortunately we’ve got a government that hasn’t learned its history and is on course to repeat it. …… Doctor Syntax
Lessons have been learned in NI and the threat of Docklands bombing type violence on the mainland is more likely than any resurgence of Troubles on any part of the island of Ireland, north or south, although more than just a few may realise the power of a mighty mouse nowadays easily eclipses and surpasses the amount of damage that any improvised explosive devices would ever be able to do.
And that latter resurgent explosive Troubles scenario, should ever it come to pass again and again, would be recognised as being government state sponsored and result in a rich tapestry of Parliamentary estate targets for retaliatory attention and thought worthy devastation and attendant grief being presented to an almost invisible army of practically almighty ghosts.
Ignore history at your peril.

“Lessons have been learned in NI”
Evidence says not, or, at best, that they’ve been forgotten. ….. Doctor Syntax
Would it be quite impossible and deliberately misleading then, Doc, to not agree on the distinct possibility, and therefore very likely probability, that there be a very select few, well in the lead and way out ahead of practically and virtually all others, ….. and who may also even very well be personages of national and international security interest and already known to authorities ….. who have learned the most valuable of priceless lessons from the shenanigans that blighted and still blunt and blanket NI with coverings of ignorance and arrogance, mindless bigotry and maddening unquestioned hatred?
Or has that effectively escaped stately detection and warranted attention if suspected of being coercive and/or subversive?
Should that be the case, what would that tell y’all about them and their likely likeable intentions/possible future plans?

Re: Nice conflation …… but a fake refuge for fools
Nicely done. Ransomware attacks come from “Russian territory” therefore we must counterattack against Russia as a whole. Well conflated! …… batfink
The chattering politically incorrect classes don’t like you to share that revealing erudite conflation as it tends to steer thoughts into actions that correctly target the leaders of them and their ilk personally, as being directly responsible for most all of present worldly woes, rather than attacking as a collective, vast hordes of entirely innocent beings who just happen to live in the same country as the miscreant.
If you want peace, be a peacemaker, if you want war, be a warmonger. One cannot be both with one promising to deliver the other no matter how crazily hard one may try to convince oneself and any others listening and well paid to accept the nonsense as necessary and acceptable.
Once that sort of understanding gains traction, the puppets starring in news and mass media tales will soon be outing the puppet masters pulling their strings from the disappearing safety of non-existent shadows.
