Karen Bradley not fit for office

In these days when politicians seemingly can say anything daft or in appropriate and get away with it, this really affected me as someone who worked in Belfast for fifteen years.

She really is pushing the envelope of political stupidity & ignorance at the moment. Remember when she revealed in public that she didn't realise that NI voters divide on sectarian lines?

I do remember that. But it is unbelievable that who you vote for is dependent on what school/church you went to.

Didn't there used to be an Alliance party that was non-sectarian? They got wiped out.

Jesus, what a div. I'm aware that the gig is a poisoned chalice, but that is crass in the extreme.

The only decent politician that has been in that role was Mo Mowlan. And this despite her allowing the orange twats to March down the Gervaghy Road.

She needs to go. Hopefully some angry bucko doesn't decide to try & help her on her way and make things worse.

I don't think that it's a coincidence that the decision on whether or not the soldiers involved on Bloody Sunday should face prosecution (following the lengthy enquiry) is due next week.

We also have the Ballymurphy enquiry currently taking place and Boris saying more or less the same as Bradley.

Wouldn't be Tory party policy attempting to influence the verdicts, would it?

Its not very sensitive but is it incorrect and remember almost anything anyone says on this will be cheered by one side and condemned by the other. She added to it later to provide clarification. Who is her audience here? Its a specific answer to a question by a DUP MP and if you watch its pretty much the answer required. Sivier has even cut it up into phrases and moved them around for impact he's also chucked in extra nonsense for effect.

On a broader note why do you scour the internet looking for idiot opinions that shock you. This is a one man left wing website looking for donations by shocking the gullible. Its even got a picture of a racist Brexiteer as the top of the page banner. You've been played, were you stupid enough to send him a donation.

This is a very fair point.

Particularly when all he has to do is log on to the BBS and wait for you to turn up.

A centrist politician and proper diplomat not tainted by the extremes of the hard left or right. The only type of politician to be able to bring to extremes together.

I think the fact that she has apologised for her remarks, is sufficient enough response to answer your complaint.

...and by the way, you have no idea how I use the internet, and where my info/sources come from, so I suggest that you keep your own responses to facts and not jibes or speculation about others that suits your bias.

She's given a very full apology:

"Yesterday I made comments regarding the actions of soldiers during the Troubles. I want to apologise. I am profoundly sorry for the offence and hurt that my words have caused. The language was wrong and even though this was not my intention, it was deeply insensitive to many of those who lost loved ones.

I know from those families that I have met personally just how raw their pain is and I completely understand why they want to see justice properly delivered. I share that aim and that is why I launched the public consultation on addressing the legacy of the Troubles.

My position and the position of this government is clear. We believe fundamentally in the rule of law. Where there is any evidence of wrongdoing this should be pursued without fear or favour whoever the perpetrators might be. That is a principle that underpins our approach to dealing with legacy issues and it is one from which we will not depart."

Lets be honest every Tory minister should resign in shame, the only one who isn't incompetent is Gove and he is an utter evil sack of shit.

In her position she really she understand the post she is in before making comments like that. Some of the ministers we have in that position now are woefully incompetent- Grayling Im looking at you.

They're still about but have slipped down the rankings. Nationalist and/or Unionist pacts squeeze them. And when they do get a chance to speak up about something, one side always screams foul. Such is the political tightrope in the north. It's a shame really as the general notion of the party is sound, along with integrated schools etc. but some of the divisions are too entrenched.

(Derry Girls - I know! - the other night had them attending a cross community project. They had to suggest the differences and similarities between Catholics & protestants. I found it very funny.)

Surely not?

We are really represented by quite the worst government in our history. Not that I hold great hopes elsewhere, but this is becoming beyond a joke.

This was doomed the moment they appointed a woman who a) had never been to the six counties and b) didn't know loyalist from republican.
