A squalid betrayal; Views of the North.

NO wonder the next tranche of killers are starting again in Northern Ireland, no doubt our politicians will repeat rewarding them.

There is a different set of rules for our Armed Forces, even when under fire. To our eternal shame, we Mackems elected two MPs with close IRA connections in the 1980s.

Another example of us being squalidly betrayed was, and is, the use of our fishery protection vessels (if any left) persecuting our fishermen for trying to make a living in what was our fishing grounds. We lost a huge source of nutrition.

But there are many such examples of us being betrayed - leading up to the break-up of the UK.

Private companies now run our nuclear generating, de-commissioning and processing, and are paying themselves huge bonuses without carrying out their promises.

Their work carries no indemnity. Sellafield is now the biggest nuclear processing site in the world, and we don't know what to do with the deadly radioactive residue.

Monsanto have been tipped the wink that their most toxic herbicides can be used with their Frankenstein crops.

Any competent farmer will tell you your weeds always develop immunity to any poisons.

A Ukrainian gentleman recently explained on TV that they had been bombarded with propaganda by the EU and USA that they would be better off in Euroland.

It is not only Yankee banks that have been ripping us off since de-regulation. Their private companies camp here in Euroland making millions without contributing properly for the use of our infrastructure. Three thousand years ago, we were trading with France and in the Med. Now, to trade we must cough up billions and accept complete subjugation to unelected politicians. The use of the Euro currency could well cause another war, meanwhile Wales and Scotland will experience no fracking after seeing it's aftermath in England.
