Muammar Gaddafi has been in the news lately and the viciousness of his regime has become apparent with the bombing of his own people and his own civilians.
The Queen is in the news because she will be visiting ireland soon.
The Pub The Players Lounge has been in the news because it has banned the Queen from visiting its premises. The so called republican attitude displayed by the Players Lounge and its owner towards the Queen can only be described as infantile, hypocritical and intellectually deficient. The owner of the Players Lounge needs to cop on to himself and stop living in the past, a past that involved a cosy relationship between the Irish Government selling beef to Libya with deals done in a tent in the Libyan desert with Muammar Gaddafi himself. Not to mention the deals done with Muammar Gaddafi by violent republican organization during the troubles when the IRA trained in Libya and received arms to kill civilians in Ireland. Libya was also involved in the Lockerbie bombing.
So it would appear that violent republicanism has a lot in common with Muammar Gaddafi. They both have bombed civilians, they both have a complete disregard for democracy and the world will be a better place when both are consigned to the history books. Will the Players Lounge be raising a banner supporting Muammar Gaddafi? I doubt they will be.
The Queen is the head of state for our nearest neighbour Great Britian. Great Britian has apologized unreservedly for Bloody Sunday and has moved on from the past. The Players Lounge needs to do the same. Wise up guys and get a life, you are living in the past. I can safely say that I will not be visiting the Players Lounge myself, banned or not and I am sure that the Queen will not be to upset that she cannot pup in for a quick pint.
