    The native Irish are becoming a minority in their own country thanks to neoliberal immigration policies and yet still you find idiots like these shouting outdated pro-IRA slogans like 'Brits out!'? Pathetic.

    I’m not in Ireland and puzzled by this band. Are they not inciting hatred? If everyone is welcome in Ireland why do they want Brits out? What about DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion)? Only with certain groups it seems. Does this not make them bigoted?

    of course these sewer rats are bigots and trying to court controversy via their images as well as what they are saying, everything they say and do is aimed at Unionists or 'Brits' as they like to call us, Its one thing to promote your language and heritage but to include violent republican imagery over steps the line, If a group of young lads from the Shankill did the same as Kneecap albeit from a militant Loyalist perspective there would be outrage and certainly no funding from film sponsers, Years ago Hip Hop in Northern Ireland was inclusive, kids from all backgrounds mixed together, this shower of shite is divisive and should be called out as so.

    Why are you promoting this group? I heard it on the radio in Friday, so why have you picked this particular rap group to promote? Is there an agenda being pushed here? It’s supposed to be a news channel funded by the public so again why are you promoting this group?

    Nothing new about the subject matter at all. Give My Head Peace is a satirical television comedy series on BBC Northern Ireland that pokes fun at political parties, paramilitary groups and the sectarian divide in Northern Ireland. We've been watching that Show even before the Belfast Agreement was signed. And is still in production and touring.

Iran and UAE drones used in Sudan war, evidence suggests | BBC News

Published

on



Iran and the United Arab Emirates have been accused of violating a UN arms embargo by supplying drones to the warring sides of the Sudan civil war.

A BBC investigation has documented the Sudanese Army’s use of types of Iranian drones in its war against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). Evidence has also emerged that the RSF received modified commercial drones from the UAE.

Foreign-made drones prominently changed the course of the war on the ground since their appearance in 2023.

Sudan’s armed forces have been fighting the RSF for the last 14 months.

The BBC has contacted the Sudanese army, Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Qeshm Fars Air to comment on the allegations that Iranian drones are being used in the conflict but has not had a response.
