Adams: on unionism

John Farmer interviews Gerry Adams for the first time in twenty years, this time they are in Manhattan. He notices a change from their last meeting:

“…some of the hard edge one heard 20 years ago seems softened. He may or may not have been a gunman, but Adams is a politician now — with a politician’s sensitivity to the requirement for patience, even for an understanding of the other side.”

Update: However, not everyone in the US is impressed. The New York Post editorialises – via Hawk Girl.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
