Riots show we're still in Dark Ages

Once again the eyes of the world see Northern Ireland in its true light: bigoted and divided.

The hatred shown by the neanderthals to each other and the police at Ardoyne shows that many in the province have yet to come out of the Dark Ages.

Wherever your allegiance lies, any kind of violence turns the clock back years for Northern Ireland.

Never mind Titanic and the Causeway Centre, or Belfast's nightlife award, the world's media concentrates itself on this few square yards in north Belfast and the people involved are too blinded by hatred to notice. Divided we fall.
