McGuiness. Three years ago. As simple and as immovable a repudiation of the responses above as you could find. Even in his peacemaker persona the mask slipped far too easily for the comfort of everyone in the south or with a conscience, even.
But don't let facts get in the way of the nonsense. They rarely have when it comes to anything in the north.
Those in the south who are like you have to dress it up as you do, because the thought that those in the north are exactly like you, and, but for the grace of god, are you, becomes too much to bear when you think about about what was done to help. Northern nationalists were on their own at the stroke of a pen - given how that state was administered thereafter, conflict was inevitable - and its rarely pretty. So watch injustice inflicted on your countrymen and do nothing, then give out when someone does do something. Admirable indeed.
Super post. The likes of Syferus, and those other folk I had the misfortune of reading on the journal.ie comments section (I should know better) re McGuinness typifies how the Internet has given a voice to folk who spout on various subjects without having a feckin clue.
