disgruntled Unionists should use to swallow the
supposed £700 million Southern peace boost
for the North.
a generation, republican terrorists used the 26

throughout the North, slipping into the Southern
comfort zone once their acts of ethnic cleansing
had been committed.
it's about time the South donated bucket loads

Tiger to ransom by their big green balls.
Unionists have spent so much of the past 40 years
fighting each other, theyve forgotten who
