the problem is that a lot of non changing small minded blinkered idiots , lost in a past that belfast does not want or support anymore .. these brain dead no hopers can only believe in as far as their intelegence allows and can not have the foresight to see and understand their actions , which says it all really...

Is that a better answer than  -    42 ?

I'm sure some of you will be interested in a Project that too place between
a group of young people from the Short Strand and a group from Tullycarnett. 

it doesn't seem to be a cross community project. More a have a look at the slum we created and now we want money to clean it up so we can destroy it again.
