Strictly Come Dancing - dissident style!



Is there no end to it?  It seems now that every shade of Irish republicanism is determined to produce its own rather 'down market' version of that great institution of the British Broadcasting Corporation, Strictly Come Dancing!

First of all it was Sinn Fein and they led the way with their version of Strictly, which took place in the less than salubrious surroundings of a business park in Jonesborough in South Armagh.


Now even the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association (IRPWA) are at it, but at least they have moved to a more up-market location with the Fir Trees Hotel in Strabane, or to be more precise, across the border in Lifford..

However I was deeply disappointed to see that they had settled for a 3-star hotel.  They really are letting the standards slip.  On the other hand it is a step up from the business unit in Jonesborough that Sinn Fein used.

But more serious still is the fact that even the most extreme republicans are now unashamedly borrowing from the hated 'Brits' when it comes to fund-raising!

Anyone wanting more information can refer to the IRPWA Strabane Facebook page, which includes a commendation from a Mandy Duffy, who is probably the same Mandy Duffy that is a sister-in-law of the infamous Colin Duffy.
