Shot on the ground


The EU Referendum blog points out something about the Antrim shootings that may be overlooked amidst all the media coverage. This wasn’t a drive-by shooting. There was a level of coolness and calmness amongst the killers that is deeply chilling.

They initially fired a volley of automatic fire from their car – and then proceeded to get out of the car, walk over to the fallen soldiers and then fired a second volley standing over them.

The Belfast Telegraph picks up on this as well , but the EU Referendum blog explains it better:

That these terrorists not only fired – drive-bys are common fare in insurgency warfare – but actually got out of their car (this is highly significant as it is their own personal security zone) to deliver the double-tap suggests exceptional coolness and control – and premeditation. The odds are these are experience killers – they have done this before. If they have not, they have been rigorously drilled by those who have.

brown-bonkersOk its the right-wing Daily Mail reporting this, so take with a pinch of salt, but the story, if true , is extraordinary.

Gordon Brown appears to be utterly delusional and refuses to take ANY blame for the recession in the UK.

Read it all here: Brown’s credit crunch tantrum

his anger boiled over in a series of outbursts during his trip to see US President Barack Obama.
The Prime Minister stormed: ‘You want me to go on television and apologise, but I am not going to do it. ‘I have nothing to apologise for. It is not my fault. Get in the real world.’

ITN political editor Tom Bradby, who was in America with Mr Brown, yesterday claimed ‘grumpy’ Mr Brown had a tantrum after he asked him to say sorry. ‘Off camera, the mike was ripped off and we exchanged a few tart remarks,’ said Mr Bradby. ‘He has a bad temper.’

Tipped off that the reporters planned to ambush him over the apology issue, jacketless Mr Brown was determined to get his retaliation in first.

‘What is it you think I should be apologising for?’ he demanded. ‘I have nothing to apologise for. You guys just don’t get it do you?’

When one reporter asked why he had let banks get out of control, Mr Brown leaned towards him and said: ‘You’re saying I got it wrong? But I didn’t. The same problems have happened all over the world and our regulations have been better than anyone else’s.

‘Get in the real world. People are saying it is my fault and that I caused the recession. They are wrong. It is not my fault.

It did not start in Britain, it started in America. We have had low interest rates and low inflation. Every other recession in Britain has been created by high interest rates and high inflation. That has not happened under me.’
Asked why he had not stopped the housing bubble, Mr Brown retorted: ‘House prices were high because of a lack of supply.’
Pressed to admit he had made mistakes, he said: ‘No, it was supply. If inflation is low, people are going to borrow money to buy houses. You can’t stop that. You don’t understand it.’
