RIP. Enjoyed her in the Russ Abbot Show. It was harmless fun but there's nothing like it on TV anymore

Anyone who buys the ‘he’s too dumb to have done it on purpose’ excuse must believe McElduff has the sort of incredible luck that would be better served in a bookmakers than a parliamentary office.

No one is silly enough for that excuse to fly, lads.
Leo Varadkar buys it

Reflecting on the week that it's been I would make the following observations
1 McElduff has a sense of humour worse than Tony Fearon's
2 McElduff needs to grow up.
3 McElduff meant no harm with his antic - he didn't notice the brand or make the connection
4 Unionist politicians know this
5 Kingsmill victims don't because Kingsmill is at the forefront of their minds & they think this is the same for everyone
6 Kingsmill victims are therefore upset over this
7 Unionist politicians, instead of trying to assist victims by explaining that McElduff is a harmless bollix and its nothing to get excited over, exploit the episode for their own political gain
8 Unionist politicians have more to be ashamed of than McElduff

Alot of you don't understand that if McElduff resigned his West Tyrone role, and stood again in the morning, he would get in by a landslide. It's this type of attitude towards McElduff and SF moreso that sickens the north's republican voters. When McGuinness stood for election as President it was the same shit3 being spouted. Funny I don't see too many sickened by De Valera's role as President.

Perhaps they should stop voting for clowns.
Apart from anything else the likes of McElduff will do nothing useful whatsoever to bring about a United Ireland, this may not be expected by Tyrone republicans but should be expected by nationalists.
I understand he works very hard for his constituents and because of this us well liked by the electorate. I'm not from the area but it's what I've heard and it was a public servant who told me that

Again good points. I wasn't aware that he had a habit of dong this. I did see a thing about him having to sneak past the DUP offices in Stormont to get to the sweets machine but I didn't know about the other stuff. In that case I would be inclined to agree that this was not directed at the Kingsmill atrocity

I hate the shinners but this was obviously not an attempt at argavating the Protestants. Barry hasn’t prior history of that unlike so many of his DUP/sf contemporaries.

I’m kinda glad it happened to be honest, might damp down his bullshit attempts at humour. He’s about as funny as a dose of the shits.
Good points.

Jesus man, hold back here. Nobody said he wasn't open to criticism. There's not one person that wouldn't agree that it was crass stupidity, however I don't think it was malicious. He seems to like to play the fool and on this occasion I think he meant to send the video to a number of close personal friends but made a mistake and hit the wrong button. It was pretty insensitive for an MP to joke about an issue like this but as always there are many who want to jump on the bandwagon and shaft him. I'm sure that at the moment he's suffering worse that the criticisers as a result of this.

"hit the wrong button"  Keep digging!

Kingsmill (like Enniskillen Birmingham etc) is such a stain on so called republicans that any man with an ounce of cop on should hear the alarm bells ringing when the word is mentioned
What do you mean by keep digging?

Pretty insensitive?  That has to be the understatement of 2018 to date.  As for your final comment, what about the victims' families?  Where do they sit in your league table of suffering?
I meant it was insensitive in the context of him just having a personal joke with a few close friends. As for my final comment, I'm not sure where reference was made to a league table of suffering. I can't speak for the families, nor can I speak for McIlduff, but I'd say he feels pretty bad over this. Has it added anything extra to tbe families suffering, I don't know.

Has he been asked to provide an explanation as to what it was he was doing and why he did it?
