    I suspect Mossad were involved in this. So it will be a non jury trial – so much for democracy.

    Smells of a MI5 agent justifying his personal expenses by telling a story.
    The actual leadership council of the IRA invited a Palestinian to their private meeting? lol.

    The odd thing is that with Brexit and the formation of a hard border, Northern Island will vote to leave the UK anyways.

    This is stupid.
    There's no new IRA. The quickest way to reunification is to shut up and let brexit does itself.

    Fantastic work!!👏👏arrested a foreign lad for attending a meeting. Good job. Love to see the British state comes down hard on terrorists. Now if only they will ever get a move on & arrest & put on trial the parachute regiment soldiers who mass murdered unarmed civilians in derry or the Ballymurphy massacures where british soldiers went on shooting sprees, planted bullets on corpses to justify murders & had a leader board & held a regiment wide competition to see who could shoot the most civilians in a day. After all The Parliament have had several inquiries conclusively find that these massacres where pre meditated & Cameron as PM acknowledged there was no legal justification & apologized formally on behalf of the UK. Yet….no trials?🤔 maybe should do something about all those terrorist in British intelligence who as part of the MRF in 1972 & later the FRU death squads 1982-2005 committed 30 direct civilian murders while serving the state & ordered & instructed the murder of 100s more civilians with the aim of antagonizing & baiting the IRA to commit retaliations. For the purpose of furthering British state foreign policy. All that & sooo much more goes unpunished yet a GP is getting scooped up to stir up a sensation for going to the wrong meeting. Not even for a failed attempt to plot anything. When you had May in bed with the DUP while Arlene Foster took meetings & instructions openly from UDA terrorists & called it "community consultations" when caught out & took pictures smiling beside UDA terroist leaders in public & no one came knocking at her door. Is it coz shes white or because she is a British state puppet that protects her from hypocrisy?🤔

    Two young boys walked into a drug store, picked out a box of tampons, and proceeded to the checkout counter

    The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son, how old are you?"
    "Eight" the boy replied.
    The man continued, "Do you know what these are used for?"
    The boy replied, "Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him… He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these, you will be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do either"
