Interview with Danny Morrison




My apologies for the technical quality of this interview, and especially the sudden ending. No deliberate censorship involved, I assure you. It’s just that I couldn’t manage to download it from Periscope (anyone out there know how to sort that?  I’ve downloaded immediately after normally, but forgot to this time, and when I came back I couldn’t see any way to download it). So what I did was play the interview and use my camera to video-record that. Near the end my camera seemed to suffer indigestion, so as I say tá bron orm – mea culpa – or as the late Nick Clegg said in that speech which they made a musical and hilarious mix of: I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m oh so sorry,I didn’t mean to, I’m sorry…

    Hi Jude,

    Is the video saved at all in any kind of file type? Or is it just in the native app? I’m dying to hear this interview!

    Have you got Periscope’s “Autosave” setting enabled?

    Tony, Danny probably blocked you because he doesnt want to be pestered by someone who has been in every party on the political spectrum from redmondite SDLP to RSF someone who now claims to speak for “republicans” while 99% of republicans want f— all to do with you and your ilk.

    Oh Michael have I touched a raw nerve with you !! Now I don’t know, you may be a PSF groupie or member but do please refrain from claiming to know 99% of republicans because that is not possible particularly for someone who now supports british rule from Stormont, endorses the Continuity RUC/MI5,endorses a judicial system which still uses Diplock Courts to intern and imprison republicans on perjured evidence, who refuse to support the campaign JFTC2, whose leadership refer to republicans as “traitors to Ireland”, who wine and dine with the English Queen, who welcome to Ireland the commander in chief of the Paras, who accept positions in the “Commonwealth Association, who recognise the Freestate as a Repuiblic, I could go on but the difference between me and you is that I have being a republican all of my adult life to the present and unlike you Im prepared to put my name to whatever I have to say, on an aside, Danny along with others of his mind block people when their not of the ” sheep” or “clapping seal” variety, like yourself. You may think that you are somewhat far superior to me in your political position but I don’t need your respect or affirmation because I am confident in what I believe, Buíochas le Dia. Finally your assertions about “every party” is factually incorrect and even if it were correct it would be laughable coming from someone who endorses all of what you now support as outlined above, I furthermore don’t claim to speak for anyone but myself and don’t know “your ilk” and I enjoy good debate with all who are prepared to debate however disagreeable their political position may be. Have a nice day !!
