  For the sake of your sanity, call it a day
In early December 2003, just after the assembly election that saw the DUP nudge ahead of the UUP, I wrote a piece setting out the arguments for David Trimble’s immediate resignation as UUP leader. It hadn’t been a disastrous election for the party (27 ...

I would say Micheal Collins is Ireland and Tony Blair is Britains. Actually Churchill would be Britains greatest figure and Tony second.

  Resolved Question: Why did various UUP
In 2003 numerous UUP MP's and MLA's resigned in retaliation to the leadership of David Trimble. MP's Jeffery Donaldson, David Burnside, and Rev. Martin Smyth all resigned the party whip at Westminster. While MLA's Nora Beare and Arlene Foster defected to the DUP in 2003. What reasons were their resignations based on? What were the main aspects of the Trimble leadership that they opposed?

  Resolved Question: Are Israel’s 'Friends'
Israel has invited Conservative Lord David Trimble to become an independent observer (suppressed laughter) in its self-appointed inquiry into the piratical assault on the Mavi Marmara, in which at least nine aid workers were murdered. As it happens, Trimble has just joined the odious John Bolton to launch the "Friends of Israel Initiative", a new project to counter attempts to delegitimize the State of Israel. Trimble is remembered for his connection with the fanatical and extremist Orange Order of Northern Ireland. A hundred years ago people siding with a foreign power at British expense could have found themselves swinging by the neck. Three hundred years ago they risked their heads on pikes for what used to be called treason. The Conservatives meanwhile are bulging with Israeli flag wavers. The prime minister David Cameron, has declared himself a Zionist. His foreign secretary and defence secretary are both leading Friends of Israel. Indeed, 80 per cent of Conservative MPs and MEPs are thought to belong to the pro-Israel lobby, according to a recent Channel 4 TV “Dispatches” programme. http://www.redress.cc/stooges/jones_oborne20091119 After recent scandals the British people have been promised a major clean-up of politics. In the pipeline are constitutional changes that will give voters power to force an MP who engages in serious wrongdoing to face another election. All they’ll need is the backing of 10 per cent of constituents in a petition. As well as the power to get rid of corrupt MPs, changes include a clampdown on lobbying in Parliament, a statutory register of lobbyists and a clean-up of party funding. But could any of this bring an end to infiltration by agents of a foreign power? The three main political parties in the UK each have a “Friends of Israel” lobby organization that ensures pro-Israel members are embedded at all key levels in Parliament and government. These adherents to another flag inhibit the government when it comes to taking a principled stand on issues such as Israel's murderous and unlawful blockade of Gaza and continuing illegal occupation of the West Bank. Your thoughts,....

  Resolved Question: David Trimble seems to be
As soon as I heard the names of the two "foreign observers" the Israelis have asked onto the panel investigating the lethal attack on the boats bringing aid to Gaza, I had a look around google. It seems David Trimble is a Zionist so there's no surprise there but I can't find much about Ken Watkin. The BBC is reporting "The Whitehouse approves of the appointments" so maybe we should expect the panel to find the Israelis were acting in self defence. I don't understand Old Dog's answer. There's the United Nations, you could ask the Chinese, the Indians. There are plenty of people. It's just that hiring someone a quick google tells you is known as a Zionist more or less kills any chance anyone will think the conclusions of the enquiry will be worth anything and everyone will be saying "white phosphorus" again!
