Just a thought on time

May 5, 2016

Today 5th May 2016 is now one of those special days in history , now how did he come to that decision , well in the UK its voting time for assembles ,parliaments ,commissioners etc oh and local council members . So what well here on the island of Ireland we have kids (18years olds) kids voting for the first time ,again so what ?? This generation of 18 year olds are the kids born in " peace" ,yep after the Good  Friday  agreement . To think of the sacrifice of all those service person is now a foot note in history , living in Tipperary as I have for the last decade "peace" has only happened in name only . Why well we still have the leaders of the IRA but they've moved across to politics ,one leads them in the north and we have Gerry here as TD ,we still have splinter groups calling themselves the IRA of one description or other ,we have major crime on or around the border ,drugs rampant in the large cities oh the occasional assignation of a police/prison officer/ gang member.Just a couple of weeks ago the "Chief of the Army council " got 7 years prison for assorted crimes ,tax evasion ,money laundering etc ,and Gerry called him a "Good Republican " mind you he also called somebody that N word (persons colour) and is being pilloried by everyone except his party ,say no more . Going forward and hopefully these kids will have a true "peace" but ( I hate that word ) BUT what have we to look forward to Radical Islam ,now that's a horse of a different colour ??
