The ‘revolutionaries’ who want to devour everyone’s children

So as well as a return to recession we have the return of people who think that murdering working class teenagers is a good and noble thing. Last weekend in Northern Ireland two unarmed soldiers were slaughtered by “dissident republicans” while they were waiting for a Domino’s Pizza delivery. Four other men including the Pizza delivery team remain wounded.

The fear is that so called “loyalists” will be gleefully digging up remote farmland to retrieve long hidden caches of weapons. They will be excited at the thought that murdering other teenage working class youngsters in “revenge” is also a good and noble thing – some innocent Catholic taxi driver or a minibus full of teenagers back from a hurling competition could also end up being slaughtered.

Of course that is what the murderers want to happen. They want more working class kids in their own community to die in order to provoke a “backlash” against the Peace Process. This is total political madness.

I hope before this happens the brainwashed cretins who carried out this attack will be soon rounded up by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) with the active help of nationalist politicians and the wider community. The troops themselves must remain in their barracks.

So I congratulate former IRA commander, now Deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness for his position in saying this was a crime against all Ireland – he now has the added responsibility of helping the PSNI stop further slaughter.

    Tristram Hunt, Shadow Education Secretary, has said that Labour would replace Osted’s“avalanche of bureaucracy” with a peer review system. Hunt made this announcement at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers annual conference where he praised Ofsted but also recognised the limitations of an education system reliant on the kind of inspection system that currently exists: “There can be no doubt in my mind that Ofsted has been an extraordinarily progressive force for improving this country’s educational outcomes and spreading equal […]

    Labour take 14 point lead in London
