Terrible tragedy. I a former squaddie from EBrington went toBallykelly working every week. Cameron did not even bother attending the remberance in Enniskillen did he attend Kelly's? If no what a piece of you know what he is. Bob Stewart Tory MP did he attend. All over Stewarts website how he took control after the blast and got a gong from the General. iF he didn't pretty disgusting what did we all take these risks for.

I have a very dear and cherished friend who was caught up in this, a lovely Catholic girl with a heart of gold, scarred for life. She was about 15 at the time. But no doubt, in the eyes of the halfwits who carried it out, she shouldn't have been there in the first place, not because of her age, but for what they insist, to the point of violence, is her nationality. Anyone who resorts to violence has already lost their argument.
