How long must republicans feel shame for Kingsmill and the like?
Don't know if it's for me to say who should or shouldn't be shamed but anyway -
In the absence of a truth and reconciliation commission type thing - in practice probably till all involved and the victims relatives who were alive at the time pass away.
Nobody ought to feel shame for what others did before they were born.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Good answer. I identify as an Irish Republican and atrocities like Kingsmill/Enniskillen/Omagh to name a few shame, not only me, but Irish Republicanism as a whole. I don't think there should ever be a time when that isn't the case

The right thing to do regardless of his intentions with the tweet.

No chance of a  DUP politician resign after many of their shameful outbursts.

Seems quite clear whats going on here. Whole affair orchestrated so that down the track Unionist knuckledraggers can be held to the same standard. Smart move.

More than most parties would have done for what I believe was one of the a stupidest of errors. Who in their right mind would be smug and smart about an embarrassment like Kingsmill? I wouldn't thing BMcE would have that in him. Does anyone think some republicans in dark corners are proud of it? I'd doubt it myself *

*Haven't read much of the thread so may be repeating arguments made elsewhere.

I agree skull.

Still, this isn't a bad thing - a standard has been set for respect. Will be good to see it being adhered to going forward...

Fair play to him for taking responsibility and doing the right thing. It may be a tad late but it is still now done. What this shows is that nationalists and republicans will hold their elected representatives to a high standard which is only right. Perhaps unionism now could think about doing the same given that they have some of the most vile individuals within their ranks doing things just as wrong as this and being held to no account. Same goes for the parties in the South who frequently allow unsavory individuals within their ranks. This is a good day for republicanism in my opinion.

I wonder if SF will indeed put Barney the Dinosaur up for the re-election.
