British Colonial and Neocolonial Order Remains in Occupied Ireland

McGuinness remains a highly divisive figure in Ireland

While British colonialism ended in the south of Ireland in 1921 after the war of Independence, however, a neo-colonial order was created to maintain the same Anglo-Irish establishment and economic relationship, without a formal political mandate of the former colony in the South. The neo-colonial order since, has lingered in the south, while the fully colonial order remains under British occupation and repression in the north of Ireland. British secret service powers are at full-time work in both parts of the island, to continue it into the foreseeable future.

While the Adams McGuinness faction has collaborated with British Imperial power in recent years, they maintain it to be a tactic in pursuit of independent policies for Ireland. However some key members of their regime are gradually defecting to the British and collaborating in a campaign to politically intern and censor all resistance to British occupation in Ireland. Former comrades and principled members of political conscience like Marian Price, are interned without trial by the British, it is clear it is done with collaboration of the Adams/McGuinness faction, along with mercenary advisors of former paramilitary officers. The orders to politically intern without trial, formally came under the cover of the British secretary of State to the Queen of England, overriding the judiciary and Stormont, it is clear it has the collaboration of senior former republicans like Adams, McGuinness and Kelly. McGuinness in his bid for the Irish Presidency has not yet been challenged on his part in the sordid affair.

The Stormont Executive is composed of handpicked PSF/DUP collaborators, who are participating in a puppet government to serve the interests of the British in Ireland. The British as always use the strategy of divide-and-conquer to create semi civil wars in all of their colonies and neo-colonies, as they contiue to do in Occupied Ireland. It is becoming clearer to the ordinary people on the street, who witness the daily political policing by the British paramilitary police and the almost daily reports of the British mentored sectarian torture of political prisoners in Maghaberry, that the reality of the touted peace process, is in fact a front for further British repression in Occupied Ireland. The calls to resist political internment without trial and the torture of political prisoners are beginning to resonate with the people There is an Anti Internment march in Dublin on the 1st of October at 2 p.m. from the Garden of Remembrance.
