My problem with Fintan O'Toole is that he and the rest of his middle class right wing reactionary ilk waste no time in condemning IRA atrocities but either completely ignore or wash over monstrosities committed against the nationalist people of the north such as Ballymurphy or the Hooded Men.

All those who just can't bring themselves to condemn those who shoot and bomb in the name of republicanism must really sicken you also?
