I’M STILL THE BOSS OF THE EAST BELFAST UVF

Suspected UVF boss Matthews boots out 10 for drug dealing as he fights to Shore (Road) up in his East Belfast power base

ALLEGED UVF chief Stephen ‘Mackers’ Matthews has issued a rallying war cry “I’m not going anywhere”, a source has claimed.

The suspected crime boss has moved to reassert his control of the UVF East Belfast UVF amid increasing speculation of him being ousted and rumours that he was considering standing down, according to sources. The Sunday World can reveal he has moved to dispel any doubts about his intentions. Matthews’ grip on his organised crime empire is said to have been shipping, where once he controlled things with an iron grip and sometimes employing ruthless methods. A number of factions had been plotting a takeover and it was thought Matthews, who denies involvement in crime, was losing appetite for the fight. A source has claimed his position was further weakened when he moved out of the UVF heartland of the lower Newtownards Road and set up home in an estate on the outskirts of the city.

PURGE 

It is claimed that following an internal investigation he ordered a purge of drug dealers. It had been believed he sanctioned the dismissal of three dealers but the Sunday World now understands up to 10 people were expelled from the organisation for dealing behind his back. Casualties include his close pal and very good friend of Jamie Bryson and second in command of the East Belfast UVF David ‘Dee’ McConnell, who was accused of putting his hands in the till. According to sources in the east of the city, Matthews had taken his eye off the ball and was losing control of the organisation. We can reveal that he called a batallion meeting and demanded complete loyalty. He warned company commanders he was intent on ‘cleaning up’ the organisation and that everyone would be accountable to him.

“He asked his commanders for their support, and he got It,” a well informed source told us. “He said if there was anyone who could not back him for whatever reason they were free to leave – no one did.” McConnell (Jamie Bryson’s UVF sidekick) was immediately stood down and despite speculation he was ordered out of the country, he has been allowed to remain in East Belfast – but no longer has the protection of the UVF. In the weeks since his expulsion he has been spending time in Scotland, having been spotted in Ayr where his partner now lives having just had a baby. McConnell (pictured below), for years a constant and loyal sidekick to Matthews, has been forced out after he was accused of dipping his hands in the till at his beloved loyalist football club East Belfast FC.

The Sunday World understands there’s a hole in the finances at the club and is believed to involve the club’s share of the gate from a money-spinning County Antrim Shield clash with Irish League Champions Linfield. It was a dream draw for the amateur league club, as the teams split the revenue, which would be pennies from heaven for a club outside the top two leagues and who are more used to playing in front of a handful of spectators. Staged at the National Stadium Windsor Park last November the match put East Belfast in the media spotlight with team manager Matthews prowling the touchline with the Blues running out 5-1 winners. Football mad McConnell was also in the dugout. The pair have been at the head of the club for a number of years, overseeing it’s transformation from also-rans into a highly successful amateur league outfit. There are numerous social media pictures of a beaming McConnell beside his mentor in East Belfast FC tracksuits. But convicted druggie McConnell, who once spent £10,000 on a set of veneers for his teeth, couldn’t resist pilfering the gate money. He and another man, also close to Matthews, have been accused and ‘convicted’ of nicking the money.

Davy McConnell UVF ex-second in command in East Belfast

It is unclear as to the amount of cash involved but is thought to run into thousands. His co-accused has been allowed to remain in Belfast because of his closeness to the Matthews family. Mackers is said to be furious and ‘let down’ by the turn of events, especially from sidekick McConnell. Dee’s position had been seen as unassailable. Towards the end of last year and the beginning of 2020 the pair seemed as tight as ever. They both attended a high profile public meeting at the Con Club in East Belfast in protest at the ‘betrayal deal’ which sees the North of Ireland retaining EU trading rules in the wake of Brexit.

Official spokesman for the East Belfast UVF. And PUL spokesman Although he pretends he was never a member of the UVF 🤣🤣🤣

He also reacted angrily to a series of Paramilitary Crime Task Force raids on a number of homes, including his own, accusing the authorities of targeting and demonizing the loyalist community. In recent months cracks have appeared in the leadership structure with increased speculation about Matthews’ intentions. There was some speculation the recently married crime boss was considering stepping back and considering leaving the country. All of which has been put to bed.

FACTIONS 

The Sunday World understands there were at least two factions vying for control in the east of the city. According to sources, Matthews is hopeful that by reasserting his control he will see off any threat to his leadership. McConnell was botted out in May following an internal investigation which resulted in him being accused of pocketing cash from the organisation’s lucrative drug rackets. Three UVF drug dealers were expelled for not paying their dues and when it emerged McConnell had been pocketing the cash it sparked a further investigation into the missing football money.

If Jamie Bryson was not a member of the UVF then why is he pictured here?

McConnell oversaw the drug operation when it emerged his foot soldiers were dealing on the side the writing was on the wall. “This is huge move that has not gone down very well at All,” one loyalist source said in May. “Dee considered himself untouchable, so much so that a few of his former comrades claim he was doing business behind his best pal’s back. “A lot of things can be forgiven in the paramilitary world, but when someone is thought to be sneakily challenging the leadership and making their own moves to make cash, it is simply not tolerated. And he warned it would result in splits in the organisation. On top of inside pressure, the gang lost a six figure sum of cash and drugs in a series of police raids which brought the missing football cash into sharper focus.

“Mackers is now convinced Dee has been stitching him up for years, the only way back for Dee is if Mackers either stands down or leaves,” said our source. On Saturday night August 8th a spokesman for Matthews said: “Mr Matthews denies any allegations of criminality and membership of the UVF. “He has no knowledge of the incident as described”

MATTHEWS’ PARTY SNUB AT SOCIAL CLUB

Alleged UVF chief Stephen ‘Mackers’ misses out on call-up to 50-year celebration for terror group and its sister organisation at Raven in two weeks time

ALLEGED UVF chief Stephen Matthews has been snubbed over a 50-year ‘celebration’ of the terrorist group.

ALLEGED UVF chief Stephen Matthews has been snubbed over a 50-year ‘celebration’ of the terrorist group.

Plans have been laid for a half century celebration in an East Belfast social club at the end of this month with a host of paramilitary veterans expected to attend. The event is the brainchild of a Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) veteran in partnership with a long standing representative of its sister organisation the Red Hand Commando (RHC). Matthews, who denies membership of the UVF or any involvement in crime, has been described as the East Belfast Brigadier of the terror group. His position has been seen unassailable, according to sources, but in recent months his authority has been questioned and there is increased speculation about his future. The fact he has been left off the guest list for such a high profile UVF event will raise eyebrows and cast an even longer shadow over his leadership.

Follow this link to find out more: https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3209334819146270&id=100002093504519&set=a.439170419496071&source=48

The event at the Raven Social Club is billed as “50 Years East Belfast Ulster Volunteer Force & Red Hand Commandos Hand Commando” and will run from 2pm – 5pm on July 25th with memorabilia from the conflict on show as well as artefacts from Long Kesh. A flute band will put on a performance and organisers have warned that while the bar will be open, people will need to observe social distancing protocols. But it is the Matthews snub that will further heighten speculation about his position. The organisation has come under pressure since the murder in January 2019 of prominent loyalist Ian Ogle. A number of people have been charged in relation to Mr Ogle’s death, his death sparked unprecedented public criticism of the leadership. The decision in recent weeks to stand down long time close associate and second in command of the East Belfast UVF Dee McConnell coupled with Matthews’ decision to move out of the UVF heartland in Belfast has only added to the instability.

SPECULATION 

He currently lives on the outskirts of the city and metaphorically a million miles from his one time power base. There is also mounting speculation that having been recently married he is looking for a new life. A regular visitor to Benidorm, where he has a caravan, people believe he may be ready to cash in his chips and settle for life in the sun.

“The UVF of the Troubles was a different organisation to what it became under Matthews”

One well placed source told the Sunday World this week that outspoken opposition to the UVF is unprecedented. “You would never have heard a word about Mackers, but now people are openly hostile to the UVF which makes the celebration at the Raven all the more ironic,” he said.

Prominent loyalist Ian Ogal who was murdered by the UVF

“The UVF of the Troubles was a different organisation to what it became under Matthews, back in the day it commanded huge respect as defenders of the loyalist community, under him it became a crime gang.” Matthews earned a reputation as an uncompromising crime boss. He demanded unstinting loyalty as his organisation controlled drug and extortion rackets in the east of the city. Another reason he has seen the writing on the wall is increased attention from the Paramilitary Crime Task Force (PCTF) and impending legislation granting increased powers for the seizure of property and assets perceived to be the assets of crime.

Dee McConnell has been recently stood down as Second in Command of the East Belfast UVF

“Mackers is low key, but some of those below him have flaunted their cars and jewellery, he knows it’s only a matter of time,” said our source. A senior security source once described Matthews to the Sunday World as one of the most dangerous crime bosses in the North of Ireland. He has become a priority for the security services and remains – despite questions over his leadership, as a major crime figure. “The fact he has not been invited to this do in The Raven is an indication as to how far his star has fallen, don’t be mistaken he is still the boss but he is facing a power struggle.” The Sunday World understands there have been a series of meetings involving senior UVF figures with the leadership high on the agenda.

VULNERABLE 

With McConnell gone Matthews has been left vulnerable. We are aware a sizeable faction of UVF men have thrown their weight behind a one time senior UVF figure seen as a potential candidate to seize control of the organisation. Last night a spokesperson for Mr Matthews said: “Once again it appears that there is a deliberate effort to create disharmony within the loyalist community, and to place a focus on Mr Matthews. “This is a non-story, with no basis in fact or reality, which is being contrived by anonymous sources seeking to undermine the positive work ongoing within East Belfast. Mr Matthews denies any allegations of involvement in any criminality and/or membership of any proscribed organisation.”

FACE OF EVIL SEX BEAST WHO RAPED GIRL (10) AND TRIED TO BLAME HER

EXPOSED 

REVEALED: MONSTER IS SON OF MURDERED IRA INFORMER 

DEPRAVED child rapist Paul Fenton is today exposed as the sick monster who raped a 10-year-old child. 

Follow this link to find out more: https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3199821756764243&id=100002093504519&set=a.439170419496071&source=48&ref=bookmarks

This is the face of a vile sex abuser who tried to heap the blame for his stomach-churning abuse on his young prey – his crimes now exposed. There is no longer any hiding place for monster Fenton, who is the son of murdered IRA informer Joe Fenton. The Sunday World can reveal Fenton was found guilty last November of raping the young girl he sexually abused since she was 10 years of age. And when his sordid crimes were exposed he blamed the little girl whose life he destroyed to fulfil his sick sexual desires. Fenton, who had an address in Ballycastle, appealed his 11-and-a-half-year sentence last week only for appeal judges to take three minutes after private consultation to deny his plea. Fenton raped the innocent child, he even blamed her for instigating the sordid abuse he inflicted. When initially charged with rape and the sexual abuse of the minor, he claimed she started the four-year nightmare.

These ludicrous and stomach-churning claims were slammed by the judge who handed him one of the highest sentences in Northern Irish history for rape and sexual abuse of a minor. He refused to admit his guilt despite damming evidence, forcing his young and traumatised  victim to appear in court and be cross-examined in the dock from 10am to 4.30pm. The exhausted child was forced to live through every harrowing moment and every sickening detail of what he did to her and what he forced to do. It was revealed in court that he made her watch pornographic movies, and every opportunity he had he molested her.

He told her he loved her, that they were best friends and this is what ‘best friends do’. It was only when she grew older she realised the depravity of what was happening to her, that it was wrong and the man who was supposed to be her best friend was a monster. The child, who was a neighbour of Fenton, is now 16 years of age. Her childhood ruined, her innocence taken and any natural trust she had completely shattered. It was only after the young girl, at 13, confided in friends that Fenton was exposed for the paedophile he is. In an exclusive interview with the victim’s grandmother, the true horrors are now exposed. For the Sunday World can reveal that Fenton has claimed to friends that he is working away instead of admitting the truth. At a court hearing last Thursday morning the sicko was almost unrecognisable since his court appearance and sentencing last year (the before and after photographs are both included in the above links).

Sweating profusely, continuously pulling at his face and hair, he looked like a man on the edge. Dark circles, almost like black eyes, were clearly seen from the public gallery. It appeared he was missing several teeth – the Sunday World understands this is the result of a vicious jail-house beating once his identity as a child rapist was discovered by fellow inmates inside Maghaberry Gaol. Speaking to the Sunday World on Saturday night July 4th 2020, the grandmother of Fenton’s brave victim revealed the pain and horror he had inflicted on her innocent granddaughter and the heart-breaking effect it had on the entire family circle. “He is an evil bastard. What he did is unforgivable. She was a baby, she was a innocent child,” the devasted grandmother told the Sunday World.

INNOCENT 

“He has repeatedly lied, over and over again, telling people he is innocent when every piece of evidence proved he was a rapist, that he raped and abused my lovely granddaughter over and over again. “That is why we as a family have decided to speak out, enough is enough, everyone needs to know what he is. A paedophile, a cruel evil bastard and a liar and coward trying to make out that he is the victim. He makes me sick,” she said. Fenton’s victim told her loving mother what had been happening after she confided in two close friends. “She told two friends and that is how it all came out, one of them, a wee boy came to the house and told her if she didn’t tell her mummy then he would. She called her mum upstairs and told her the awful things he had been doing to her, grinding against her and raping her, and the police were called.” Fenton’s father Joe was murdered by the IRA in 1989 after he was exposed as a Special Branch agent.

Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF) flags prompt feud fear

Billy Wright leader of the Loyaist Ulster Volunteer Force the (LVF)

FEARS are growing of another loyalist feud erupting in a Co Antrim town. Tensions are running high after the recent erection of LVF flags in Ballymena.

The flags have been put up on lampposts in the Doury Road estate, an area regarded locally as a UDA stronghold. The LVF flags were put up in the Camberwell Way part of the estate. The move is being blamed on an LVF faction who recently moved from Co Antrim. “They are blow ins,” revealed our source. “Whether they moved of their own free will or where put out no one knows. “But there is no way the UDA will put up with that.

ACTION 

“Doury Road has always been an area with big support for the UDA.” There are fears that the actions will antagonise UDA members into action. “It is only a small group but I’ve been told more are expected to arrive from Antrim,” added our source. “Hopefully nothing kicks off but people with authority in the organisation are monitoring the situation closely.”

There has been no love lost between the rival paramilitary organisations over the years. The LVF built up a strong affiliation with Johnny Adair’s Shankill Road UFF unit. And it was the unveiling of an LVF flag outside a bar during a show of strength which sparked the vicious feud which ultimately led to Adair’s exile. Now there are fears that Ballymena could be about to become the centre of another violent loyalist dispute.

Robbie Lawlor suspect fears he’s next on kill list

Gangland pals of slain hitman out for blood

RUC/PSNI and forensic officers at the scene where a man was shot dead in Rodney Parade in the Lower Falls area of Belfast

Adrian ‘Aidy’ Holland has been warned that pals of notorious Dublin hitman Robbie Lawlor, who was shot dead outside the north Belfast man’s home in April, are gunning for him.

The same gang carried out the revenge murder of Crossan at his mother’s home in the west of the city last weekend.

Adrian ‘Aidy’ Holland

Shot Crossan’s pal flees to Spain in fear he’s next 

A CLOSE criminal cohort of murder drug dealer Warren Crossan has fled Ireland. The Sunday World understands Adrian ‘Aidy’ Holland (pictured above) who is in his late twenties, left the country on Saturday night July 4th 2020. Fearing he will be the next target of the Dublin-based crime gang who murdered Crossan last Saturday morning. Crossan was shot dead in the St James’s area of West Belfast as he visited his mother. He was shot six times in the face by two gunmen who were acting in revenge for his involvement in the murder of Robbie Lawlor who was gunned down outside Adrian Holland’s home in Etna Drive in Ardoyne in April. Crossan lured the Dublin-based hitman to his death on the promise of collecting a car. On Saturday night Mr Holland fled the country fearing it was only a matter of time before he would suffer the same fate. The Sunday World understands he has fled to Spain where he has other criminal associates. We can also reveal that Crossan’s dissident criminal gang are not planning any form of retaliation, terrified of the capabilities of Lawlor’s gang who are hell-bent on revenge for his murder.

PUNISHMENT 

“Deep down Warren knew it was coming, he should have known that he would pay for what he did. In that world you don’t walk away without punishment. We all knew it was only a matter of time before he was taken out by the boys in Dublin,,” said one associate.

Murder victim Warren Crossan (28)
Two masked gunmen chased the victim from Rodney Parade, firing shots at him as he fled, before fatally wounding him as he fell at St Katharine’s Road.

Crossan was facing trial in connection with a plot to smuggle £180,000 worth of cocaine across the border, concealed inside the door panels of a van stopped on the A1 at Sprucefield in November last year.

Dublin-based hitman Robbie Lawlor was shot dead in Ardoyne in April

“Warren was a drug dealer, he was hardly Pablo Escobar. He thought he was something much bigger than he was but in reality he wasn’t he was a small fish in a massive, deadly pond and he got eaten up and spat out. He was out of his league, he f***ked up agreeing to get involved in that feud. He might as well have put a bullet in his own head the second he agreed to that,” another associate told the Sunday World. We can also reveal Warren Crossan begged for his life when he came face to face with his killers. Like his dissident terror chief father Tommy, he died in a hail of bullets, paying the ultimate price for his life of crime. CIRA boss Tommy Crossan was shot dead on Belfast’s Springfield Road in April 2014.

Man killed in #Ardoyne last night was actually a gangland criminal and suspect in the murder of Keane Mulready woods. I see already unionists are trying to politicise his murder by blaming republicans without a shread of evidence. It could literally be anyone. #belfast #murder

The story we are getting is that Robbie Lawlor is dead. He’s the Dublin gangster who chopped the wee lad up outside Drogheda. Adrian Holland owed him 200k for drugs and he was coming to bang him. Adrian Holland shot him six times and bolted.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

DISSIDENT BOSS SAYS LYRA GUN IS ‘CLEAN’

EXCLUSIVE 

DISSY chief Thomas Ashe Mellon has insisted the Lyra McKee murder weapon is clean, a source has claimed 

Dissident boss Thomas Ashe Mellon

Terror boss Mellon has assured dissident pals cops will find nothing on the pistol that will link the teenage shooter believed to have blasted the young journalist to death.

Hammerli X-Esse, a.22 German-made pistol. The gun used to murder journalist Lyra McKee
Other bullets were also recovered by the RUC/PSNI

The Sunday World understands he insists the gun was “professionally cleaned” in the wake of the fatal shooting in Derry’s Creggan estate. When summoned to a meeting in Belfast last week by his dissident cohorts, he said this was the reason why the gun was not taken out of Derry as instructed. He claimed that because it was forensically wiped, it was better off within reach of his Derry unit considering the availability of weapons was so restricted. The Sunday World revealed on the anniversary of the Belfast women’s murder that the gun was still in Derry and within reach of the killer gang. While members of the Collective Leadership of the NIRA were unconvinced by Mellon last week, they had no option but to swallow the explanation safe in the knowledge that if they acted against Mellon they would loose Derry completely. 

“They knew, as did Tommy, that if they moved on him then he would have walked Derry firmly behind. “If Tommy goes then so does Derry, he will have their support. He already operates on his own effectively giving two fingers to lads on a regular basis and he has done it again,” said a Derry dissident.

The IRA Green Book, Informers will be tolerated LOOSE-TALK COSTS LIVES. Including your own

 

 

 

 

“The IRA do not like do not like what Thomas is doing, setting his own agendas, ignoring orders such as no operations during this pandemic thing, but they need Derry and without Thomas, at this stage anyway, there is no Derry without him,” he revealed. Crisis talks have taken place with members of the organisation publicly raising their concerns that their were informers within the ranks. This comes after we revealed last week that Derry were in the firing  line after a series of botched jobs, four in recent months, with the most concerning being the discovery of the Hammerli X-Esse pistol (pictured above). The Sunday World can also reveal that the levels of paranoia and suspicion has increased after last week’s article exposing the chinks in the criminal gang.

UDA’s Bib faces fight in hospital

FALLEN UDA heavyweight Sam ‘Bib’ Blair is in hospital battling COVID-19.

https://images.app.goo.gl/Ka9tF5DsDa5EBAAa6

The Sunday World understands the former North Belfast Brigadier has been admitted to the Mater Hospital and is fighting the Crononavirus. It is understood he is still able to breathe unaided (what a pity) but sources in the north of the city have described him as “very poorly”. Blair is understood to suffer a number of under of underlying health conditions which place him in the high-risk category.

The Mater Hospital was last week declared the designated COVID-19 hospital but levels of infection have soared in recent days with the City Hospital converted into the North of Ireland’s first Nightingale Hospital.

SETBACK

Blair’s illness is the latest setback to befall the one-time terror chief. He was forced to stand down as North Belfast Brigadier after it was discovered thousands of pounds were missing from a Christmas fund earmarked for so-called veterans and their families. Blair denied he had his hands in the till but had no choice other than stand down.

A heavy drinker and gambler, he was a regular sight in city centre pubs, bouncing between his pint and the bookies next door. Blair, a convicted extrotionist, was put in place as a ‘safe pair of hands’ in the wake of the murder in 2016 of UDA commander  John ‘Bonzer’ Borland.

FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO HELP A POOR PROD

TODAY we launch an appeal for much-needed funds for loyalist paramilitaries and Loyalist Communities Council (LCC).

image

After giving up their criminal campaign, 20 years after they last promised to give up their criminal campaign, the Re-home a Red Hand and Adopt a UDA Man (RRHAUDAM) appeals urgently need your help. For just £50,000 a year could give idle buggers like Sammy from the Shankill a community worker’s job.
It would help to pay for the three holidays a year and the top-of-the-range car which he and his family so badly need. In return, he’ll promise to enrich the culture of his community and lay off doing anyones’ knees. Obviously he’d still be good for a bit of blow (weed) but keep it to yourself. But the suddenly contrite paramilitaries aren’t looking for charity. They will be bringing important job skills to any cushy number they’re offered. They have maths skills from years of working out if Jonty has a kilo of weed how many half ounces can he knock out if he expects a 50 per cent mark up.

Or if a local businessman refuses to pay his £80-a-week protection money how many bricks will it take to do his windows. They have invaluable people skills, honed over decades of dealing with the local community – the bookies, the bar men, the travel agents, the car dealers, the wee girls in the off-licence. And all they want is the chance to give back to their community by getting the jobs few of them have ever bothered getting before. They long to experience life on minimum wage and a zero hours contract because who needs qualifications when you have an overwhelming sense of entitlement. Our appeal so far has raised £1 million from the Tony Blair’s an Angel Who’s Still Fixing the World Foundation.

image

VITALLY

It’s a tiny amount compared to the £26 million which was raised by the PIRA in their Northern Bank fundraiser but it was either that or cupcake sales for the next millennium. It’s vitally important that the paramilitaries are shown our love because otherwise they might just keep doing what they’ve always done for the last 20 years. There will be some strays from the path of peace, like Tyrone, South East Antrim, East Belfast and the UPRG who aren’t ready to leave the old ways behind. They will be humanely arrested for blatantly breaking the law, even though they’ve miraculously got away with a life of crime up to now. So please give what you can – support your local loyalist so he doesn’t have to.

I’M ALREADY LOW ON NEW YEAR OPTIMISM

“Seen this in The Sunday (lies) World and had to repost”.

IN A couple of days we’ll be taking down the decosions, locking up the 12-year-old Scotch malt that’s only brought out at Christmas and contemplating another year!!!

1483978_607635832617669_1772329918_o

The New Year is traditionally a time for optimism, sadly down the years ours has been wasted and without wishing to be a seasonal grump I’m not sure how long our optimism can take it. We’re getting used to being let down, but you have to hope don’t you? Things have to change eventually so why not in 2014. First thing that needs to change is the Chief Constable. Matt (maggot) Baggott has an unenviable task as head of the PSNI/RUC but he has shown he is simply not up to the job, whether its because of political pressure, his failure to handle the UVF has been spectacular. He was ill advised to have attended the PUP conference as the keynote speaker last year but he clearly can’t learn from his mistakes. With the UVF orchestrating night after night of street violence as the fleg protests swung into action the PSNI’s/RUC softly softly approach simply handed control of the streets to the terror group. His officers were expected to stand on the front line and take a battering – night after night – and when the PSNI/RUC did a deal allowing the UVF to police their own parades it was confirmation that the lunatics really had taken over the asylum. And if that wasn’t bad enough he insisted the UVF’s ceasefire remains intact, despite more than 30 murders since they claimed they put their guns beyond use and more recently the attemped murder of Jemma McGrath in East Belfast.

Excuse

293290_171098439636605_1085904647_nIn the wider context we need the Orange Order to wise up. The outside world looks in and wonders what these strange wee men in bowler hats and collarettes are all about. Their intolerance and open hatred of all things Catholic is hard for anyone to grasp. And accommodating tolerant Orange Order would, in one fell swoop, disarm all those who want to see it condemned to the history books. The Order gives bigots an excuse, take it away and they fall. On the other side of the house the Shinners must be hoping that Gerry Adams‘ (pedo protector) closet isn’t any bigger. With the number of skeletons already out it resembles the Tardis! The Shame Fein president has been left damaged by his continued denial of IRA membership, allegations of involvement in the abduction and murder of Jean McConville refuse to go away and his handling of sex abuse claims levelled against his brother further wrecked his creditability. He is fast becoming a leader in name only – people simply don’t trust him anymore. Maybe 2014 will be a time the Shinners started looking for a new star. It’s not asking much but if we manage to secure these changes and the North of Ireland manage to win the match 2014 mightn’t be too bad.
