    Dixie,

    Are you really nauseated that Fitt did not send young men and women out to kill or serve long years in jail or did you misspeak?

    The point being that people who vote Sinn Féin are perhaps more likely to get worked up about that kinda thing.

    C’mon FJH. You know better than that. Perhaps the 8-10% who voted for them prior to them eschewing violence. The rest couldn’t give two s**ts.

    I know I’m gonna kick myself for getting involved in this nonsense again. But, tyrone_taggart, maybe you don’t understand the rules of engagement. It’s up to you to name all the Heads of State who do visit people who have not yet been tried.

    Yes, Dewi. She must have been scratching her head this morning after reading her (complimentary) copy of the Newsletter.

    From the BBC, “Martin McGuinness has said when he shakes the hand of the Queen he will be symbolically shaking the hand of every unionist in Northern Ireland.”
