Peter "the punt" told to put up or shut up!

I was delighted to hear that the man Peter "the punt" Robinson named, cowardly, under "parliamentry privilage" has challenged him to check his books or recant his statement.

Robinson claimed that Peter Curistan was linked to "IRA dirty money". Mr Curistan, chairman of the Sheridan Group, the company behind the Odyssey Centre, denied the claim.



"I was horrified at these scandalous allegations that put my life and my family's life in jeopardy,"

"I call on Peter Robinson now to come in and inspect all our books; for him to appoint whatever accountancy firm he wants to come in an inspect our books for the last 10 years," he said.

"It has been done every year by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, they have not qualified the accounts in any way... If he does not take my offer up I think we all know the standard of his accusations"


This blog has already outlined the cowardly actions of Robinson but it should come as no surprise to Balrog readers as Robinson has a history of cowardice.

This is a man who led an "invasion party" of a couple hundred "loyalists" into the Monaghan town of Clontibret. The "loyalists" entered the Garda station in the village and physically assaulted two Garda officers, and then held a quasi-military drill in the square. Robinson was later arrested. He pleaded guilty to unlawful assembly and was fined £17,500 in a Drogheda court because of the incident.

This "man" could have stuck out his prison sentence for his "political beliefs" but instead tucked tail and run, paying his punts to the Irish government and thus earning the affectionate nickname, Peter "the punt" Robinson.

How this man has the nerve to talk about democracy I will never know.

Yet more cowardly actions from the punt but it is what we have come to expect from the "red beret".
