There has been a shocking rise of anti-social behavior lately! It's seriously damaging the reputation of the community.

Hoods being manipulated by Dissidents it seems. Shocking that it happens just as the Maritime Festival and Foyle Cup are about to start, and whilst the football club has foreign visitors to impress as well.

I did an interview in town with the journalists who do the 'Irish Passport' online podcasts this morning, and they were saying that when they arrived in the city last night their sat nav took them right up to the burning van that was in the middle of the Lecky Road ! That will now feature in what was supposed to be a more general look at our city form two southern journalists.

That burnt out shell of a van was still blocking Lecky Road an hour ago btw, and looks awful

No idea Jinks - I'll ask them.

They did a few interviews around the city, so will be doing a podcast featuring Derry quite heavily. They arrived late on the Tuesday night which is a shame, as they were supposed to have more time to look around and check things out.

They've been in Crossmaglen today, so doing a good tour of the border.

Two explosions and two vans hijacked within 2 days. Shocking. Sending us back to the dark ages.

I'd like to see these fuckers explain why Paolo's and the postman should be forced into their little "chuckie or law" extravaganza. I hope the next bomb they make goes off in their hands before they get to take it anywhere.

Nice picture of the Brandywell in the news though.

On Thursday, a talented,intelligent young life was taken away because of the deplorable behavior of hooded thugs. What do these people think they have to gain from destroying and hurting their own community? Irish Unity? Aye right, makes the south want less to do with us.

More rioting going on in the Bog. Making our city look toxic from the outside. I'd love to see a day where ALL bonfires where ceased. Sectarianism really is poison.

Bands marching with Solider F emblems, the whole thing is really depressing.

Totally Adam, and its a shame that we seem to have moved on so little since the shooting and bombing stopped.

You put our flag on your bonfire, so we'll burn yours on ours.
You put a GAA flag on yours, we'll put a sash on ours.
You put a picture of a nationalist politician on yours, we'll put a unionist picture on ours.
You march with Para badges on your shirts, we'll burn a Para banner tonight.

... and on it goes. And perhaps its actually getting worse?

It does nothing to make the city more attractive to investors, but those doing these things have little or no interest in money coming into the city or the province. Do they want a job or to better their lives or the lives of future generations?

Wouldn't it be great if one side could be the bigger man so to speak, and not retaliate? This would shame the other side worldwide.

Their response would likely be something along the lines of, ".... aye, but them 'uns did it, so we had to do it".

Did you think this would still be going on 20+ years after the GFA?

Definitely not. Back then people like John Hume and David Irvine inspired people to believe we were heading for a more integrated society. But just like 20 years ago there's still hardly any integrated schools, the orange order are still putting up flags in shared spaces for the duration of every summer and parents have continued to 'programme' their children to not trust 'themuns'. Unless those things change we'll never be able to move on properly.
