Kafkaesque

Where bureaucracies overpower people , often in surreal, nightmarish milieu which evoke feelings of senselessness, disorientation and helplessness.

The present bureaucracy is administered by the Secretary of State.

Those who are not “pro agreement” are excluded from any organ of the state, including the executive or  the judiciary.

The pro agreement people are showered with honours , power and influence.

Why? To prevent any bombs in London. Read Peter Hitchens in the Mail.

Loss

Losing a loved one  “naturally” is always sad.

To lose a close family member “unnaturally” say in a car crash, is unexpected, inexplicable  and difficult to come to terms with.

To lose a loved one , murdered, is horrific. The conviction of the perpetrator may bring some “closure” to use that overworked and somewhat empty word.

To lose both parents, murdered by a PIRA active service unit, in an operation approved by the man who is now deputy first minister is outrageous, unreasonable and a situation which no citizen of a functioning democracy should have to endure.

Worse, the state has been complicit in the protection of Martin McGuinness in pursuit of the chimera known as the “peace process”.

Readers might wonder what that process is, given the PSNI warning about attacks and recent newspaper articles alleging that Sinn Fein is controlled by the army council.

What price peace?

A price I will not pay.
