    On 1st. July, Lest We Forget… 



    Captain Wilfred Spencer of the 36th (Ulster) Division’s HQ staff –

    :I am not an Ulsterman but yesterday, the 1st July, as I followed their amazing attack, I felt that I would rather be an Ulsterman than anything else in the world.”

    The Somme, The On-Going Threat…and A Dominion of Ulster? 

    The Battle of The Somme, 1916, a century ago, was and is a defining event in British Ulster’s history.

    The heroism and sacrifice  shown in that First World War battle, when Ulster’s volunteers went into battle shouting their war-cry, ‘No Surrender,’ made it impossible for London politicians to sell out their most loyal and brave fellow-country,.


    It’s an anniversary that has resonance every year but maybe even more today, this year, as Dublin’s Fifth Column resumes its droning rant for an end to what they call ‘partition,’ an ironic choice of word, since it was Sinn Fein that gloried in ‘partition.’

    Partition of the British Isles.




    The satanic Sinn Fein/IRA duo, McGuinness and Adams, want a referendum to have Ulster annexed to Eire.

    The Guardian has an article…..

    Ireland faces partition again. Preserving the peace is critical

    ..but their headline is unutterably misleading.

    The journo says nothing about ‘Ireland’ facing ‘partition again,‘ merely speculating on a possible new partition of the UK, questioning our British Ulsterfolk’s place in HM’s realm in the face of those evil republicans’ eternal quest to drive them under Dublin rule.

    Almost inevitably, being a Guardian employee, she comes out with tripe, viz. 

    One of the greatest challenges is the likely reinstitution of a physical border between north and south. The border checks of the Troubles were, for many, militarised sites of fear and oppression..


    Border check-points might be an inconvenience but they did, and would again, remind the disloyal minority that ‘Ireland’ is a geographical expression, not a nation.

    And that if they’d like to live under Eire’s tricolour, their best bet is to pack their bags and sod off south.

    As for fear and oppression, no honest Brit patriot ever felt like that, only Shinner swine like the two demonic creatures in that photo above.

    Of course, if she’s old enough, the Guardian scribbler may have experienced feelings like that..



    ‘Oh no, it’s the border…!’


    …but she’s no Brit.

    She’s Dr. Emer O’Toole, a native of Galway, and a graduate of the National University of Ireland Galway and Trinity College Dublin!


    Could they not find somebody with a British outlook?

    Well, no, it’s the Guardian, after all.

    But another look at the frontier drawn up so long ago is no bad idea. The current border could easily have been somewhat different. 


    A loyal Ulster Brit wrote in 1919 that ‘A Southern frontier from the end of Lough Erne to Bessbrook or thereabouts would be ideal; it would take in a fair share of the people we want and leave out those we don’t want’ 

    There are too many aliens, clutching Eire passports. whose allegiance is to that tricolour. Better by far to resurrect Maggie’s contemplation of ‘re-partition,’ adjusting the frontier to excise treason lairs like Crossmaglen….




    …and transferring disloyal ‘Sudeten’ populations from areas like the Bogside and the Falls, to ensure that a slightly smaller British province becomes more homogeneously British.

    As to the Sinn Fein/IRA goal of annexing Ulster to Eire, let’s not forget that Ulster Division whom we honour as Somme heroes.

    They had previously been Ulster Volunteers, ready to fight any betrayal by the London Government which might place them under Dublin rule.  But when the Crown required their services in the Great War, they didn’t hesitate to join up.

    Similarly today, there may be disagreements within the British community in those lovely lands between Londonderry and Larne.

    Mural, Shankill Parade, off Shankill Road.

    No matter if London doesn’t reciprocate their loyalty,  they will NEVER be forced into an alien republic.

    Nor for the first time, the Dominion of Ulster is a topic of conversation in God’s Own Country.
