I did this earlier today http://shaunynews.com/2015/05/19/sinn-fein-leader-gerry-adams-to-meet-prince-charles/ now we have had the handshake. I must say for the IRA, now gone and Sinn Fein to be the voice of the old IRA and an official political party and for peace today, this is, AGAIN! Good news, the IRA were alleged to have killed Prince Charles role model and best family member Lord Mountbatten at the time back in 27 August 1979 (aged 79) Mullaghmore, Ireland, for these men to shake hands is proof peace can, when given a chance, work. I just wish other areas of our World would give peace the same chance. I know many won’t like this but speaking to the people I have so far they see it as a step in the right direction also. We can all stay angry at the past or try and move forward, I would rather move forward. I hear stories from family and friends of the struggles, nothing I was ever a part of, to now know that all the bad blood is gone and we can now move on, for MILLIONS of people in the UK and EIRE is a good thing, people don’t want to be stuck in the past. Here we live in this moment, today with today’s issues, we don’t stop progress due to thousands year old books telling us the made up story before hand. I respect Religion but we could have peace in many other places, sadly, and mostly Americans, their Christian/Protestant bible says “There MUST be War before Palestine can be free’d” is lot of rubbish. This is just one example where religion has held the World back. I speak to people in America who, it seems would rather have War than see Palestine free or the peace deal with Iran and the World Community given time to work. When a person is so, so deeply brainwashed to the point they, lovers of God, living by the teachings of Jesus, would actually rather have War than their invisible friends in a book written by man made to look false. I will say it again, EUROPE WILL FREE PALESTINE BY RECOGNIZING PALESTINE! There will be no War. Nobody hates Israel enough to want to go to War, people just don’t want Palestine land locked. When we see the British/English Royal Family shake hands with alleged ex IRA Members, we know peace has worked.

Prince Charles has become the first member of the Royal family to meet Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams – one of the most controversial republican figures of the last 50 years. He shook hands with Mr Adams at the start of his first official tour of Ireland, where his great-uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten was assassinated by the IRA.

It follows Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness shaking hands with the Queen in Belfast three years ago, and is seen as a sign of deepening relations between the UK and Ireland. The heir to the throne exchanged a few words with Mr Adams as Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall met guests at the National University of Ireland Galway. The two men, both 66, smiled at each other and shook hands for several seconds in the packed hall.

Charles was holding a cup of tea as he greeted Mr Adams, who leaned forward to speak close to the Prince’s ear several times. He then introduced the Prince of Wales to the man standing next to him, before Charles continued down a queue of assembled dignitaries. Charles and Camilla touched down on a chartered flight at Shannon Airport in County Clare before travelling to Galway for their first engagement in a packed agenda.

Mr Adams arrived there at midday and told reporters he hoped their meeting would be “symbolic and practical”. “I don’t have any expectations other than this being an engagement which I hope is symbolic and practical, and will assist that entire process,” he said.  “It will by its nature be a relatively short engagement.”

Mr Adams added: “But I don’t buy into not shaking hands.” Sky News has learnt the invitation came from Charles after Mr Adams requested a meeting during the Royal visit. It comes on the eve of the Prince’s emotional walkabout in the seaside village of Mullaghmore, County Sligo. Lord Mountbatten was murdered there in 1979 when the IRA remotely detonated a bomb on his fishing boat.

Three others were also killed – his grandson Nicholas Knatchbull, Nicholas’ paternal grandmother, the Dowager Lady Brabourne, and Paul Maxwell, their local boat boy. Within hours, another IRA bomb claimed the lives of 18 British soldiers at Narrow Water, Warrenpoint, in Northern Ireland. Charles and Camilla are due to visit Mullaghmore on Wednesday following a service of peace and reconciliation at St Columba’s Church, in nearby Drumcliffe. They will also visit the grave of poet WB Yeats, who is buried under the shadow of Benbulben. The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall will end their four-day tour with a series of engagements in Northern Ireland.

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams to meet Prince Charles

When we give peace a REAL CHANCE to work, these things happen. I hope Israel will understand when Europe free Palestine by recognizing it as a sovereign state, Palestine will be in trade with Europe and not have to burden Israel any way at all. High level talks with Europe are showing Palestine could be freed this year. Anyone with a brain will remember the IRA and London issue. See had we kept the hatred we would still have issues here, because we gave peace a chance we have peace in the UK on the Ireland issue, at least for the time being and it seems to be holding, long may it! The Queen met Martin McGuinness back in 2012, now Charles is to meet Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams. This is hope, hope for peace, peace still. Some will look to keep hatred there but many I speak to this morning see this is progress by Sinn Fein and the Royal Family.

(CNN) Gerry Adams will meet with Prince Charles in Ireland, making it the first public meeting between the Sinn Fein leader and a member of the British Royal Family. The meeting will take place during Charles’ four-day tour of the Republic of Ireland with his wife Camilla. The tour begins Tuesday.

During the trip, Charles will also visit the village of Mullaghmore, where his great-uncle Lord Mountbatten was allegedly killed by an Irish Republican Army bomb during a boating trip in 1979. At the time, Adams condoned the attack, saying, “What the IRA did to him is what Mountbatten had been doing all his life to other people.”

Before he helped broker peace in Northern Ireland, Adams has long been associated with the IRA — once considered the armed wing of Sinn Fein. Today, Sinn Fein is Ireland’s second-largest opposition party. The peace in Northern Ireland came after decades of bloody conflict between Protestant loyalists who wanted to stay part of the United Kingdom and Catholic nationalists who wanted to see the north united with Ireland.

The meeting with Charles is being viewed as another milestone in the fragile peace process. “This was agreed to promote the process of resolving past injustices and promoting reconciliation and healing,” Sinn Fein Chariman Declan Kearney said on the party’s website.

Royal’s, Babies, why Scotland has turned away from English Elite

Now remember, I don’t and won’t do hate against anyone or anything unless it is unnecessary and evil, you know the story. With the Royals I know not one person in my life who likes the Royals, who knows the name of the new kid. I like most here in Scotland didn’t even know the woman was pregnant, I had no idea she was due a 2nd baby, it is 2 right? It is not because we are stupid, we just don’t care anymore, simple!  Now I know the World travels to London to see Buckingham Palace and to spot the Queen or William and Harry or whoever else is around. Harry is the only Royal I would give the time of day to as he is REAL. A few years ago at a fancy dress party he caused WWIII almost (Joke) by dressing up as a Nazi SS Officer

Let me explain the reason this went down badly

Let me explain the reason this went down badly

Now I thought it was funny, I have seen people dress as Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Barack Obama, Darth Vader and pretty much everyone at fancy dress parties. The reason I don’t get offended is simple, I refuse to be offended. The story behind all this is conspiratorial in nature as many say the Royals are German blood lines and sided with Germany in both WWI and WWIII. The current British Royal Family are members of the House of Windsor but when we look at genealogy we see there is German blood, and more in the UK Royal Family nobody really cares about these days, I will explain why in the next paragraph. We must travel back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to the House of Oldenburg to see the German blood lines that exist in the modern Day European Royal families, so that explains a tiny bit of the story, I just don’t care, I am writing this due to so many people asking me about the Royal baby I had no idea was due

Clear German Royal blood

Now lets go back 35 years when Shaun was in Primary 1 as a kid, I am talking about myself. Back in the late 1970’s and Early 1980’s the whole of the UK, Scotland also used to line the streets to wave at the Queen. Back then the Queen would arrive at Edinburgh airport and they would be tailed by Police cars, MI5/MI6 and try and go past as many Schools and people as possible. Routes were known days in advance back in the days where the IRA were the real and present danger to the Queen. I remember we used to all get taken from class at 6/7/8 years old and stand at the top of the sport’s field and all get exited as we seen the Queen. This was standard practice back then, everyone wanted to see the Royals, if only I knew how I would grow and feel about it all, my Family were never too keen on the Royals to be fair, for whatever reason, maybe because they had a life? …Anyway…

These days the Queen lands at Edinburgh Airport and she is driven directly to Holyrood Palace and nobody knows, nobody cares. A few times I have seen the ‘Royal Car Fleet’ drive through town, traffic is stopped by the Police on motor bikes and we all get annoyed our day has been slowed down because Auld Liz is visiting her Edinburgh home. Other times it can be William and Kate, Princess’s Margaret, nobody cares these days.

One of the last times the Queen was in Edinburgh, nobody cared or knew or wanted to know or care

We live in a time of Austerity, people living wage to wage, people are more well off in Scotland in 2015 than they were in the 1970’s. People I speak to in my personal life are the same as me “Aww crap the Queen is coming next Thursday, I am not going into town” That is the level of care we give these days. I think it is UK wide this issue now. I spoke to a few friends from a few places North and South of England and they say the same more or less. People are trying to live, make ends meet. We as a Country pay £2 Million every quarter of the year, every 3 months, to the Royal Family. Nicola Sturgeon our First Minister (President/Prime Minister, we call them First Minister) withheld money for the Royals when she got into Power when Alex Salmond quit, I am not sure if she has since paid, but it went down well with EVERYONE I know. http://shaunynews.com/2014/12/08/nicola-sturgeon-refuses-to-pay-the-queen-go-on-nicola/ , also I am sure it is £2M a year, I may be wrong

“Hi Liz! Welcome to Scotland, oh, and we kinda own all your land and houses now”

People from all over the World come for Royal Weddings, so what looks like a United love for Royals by a vast percentage of British people is actually tourists. Back in the day England made an Empire, these days it has had a name change to make it more politically correct, it’s now “The Commonwealth” This is why we have the Commonwealth games, like the Olympics but only Countries who England historically stole, murdered and raped from. Many have left the Commonwealth, Scotland are trying still and we will get out of this Union for the rich. People in other countries I don’t think believe me when I say all I have here in this article. A friend left me a private message on facebook telling me they had named the Royal baby. This was earlier today, I didn’t know anyone was pregnant and I don’t care what the kid is called. This country is run by an Elite from Royals to Politicians right through to Media who lie badly, lucky Scotland are a bright bunch and on the 8th May the political landscape of Scotland will have changed greatly. Below is a map of the 2010 UK General Elections (Left) for Scotland, next to it (Right) are what the good polls are predicting for 2 days from now, May 7th 2015. So I hope this explains how I feel about the Royal Family and how many in Scotland and the UK do also. Sure we have Royalists and Unionists still but very low numbers, many sing “God Save the Queen” at certain Football Stadiums in Scotland in 2015, 2 Stadiums perhaps, one for sure, the other is a small percentage who get boo’d by their own fans for singing it. I don’t hate the Royal Family, I just love Scotland more 🙂
