Reaction to Clare Short

Clare Regan with some of the relatively muted reaction to Clare Short’s assertion that the IRA never targetted civilians.

  • Ziznivy

    The reaction has been muted, firstly because the assertion she made is so self-evidently preposterous and secondly because Clare Short is a failed politician who has lost all credibility and is largely an irrelevance.

  • Pat Mc Larnon

    “Relatively muted,” probably across the board, although you can call Paisley minor a lot of things but muted it hardly one of them. His attempt at contrived apoplexy every time anything republican is mentioned is like an old cabaret act seen a thousand times.

    The old boy is all but a corpse, but is still more coherent than a half baked wannabe who must fear the old demons’ departure and his own subsequent political demise.
