Newshound today has an article
by Danny Morrison in which he seems to be preparing the ground for another de facto act of surrender by the Provos. In this he talks of the murder and maiming of people at the Brighton Bombing as putting “manners on the colonial power”.This offensive triumphalism – look what WE did – is surely bluster designed to ease the pain of what is to come. It’s unpleasant language – imagine if the British Government described the slaughter at Loughgall as putting manners on the IRA, or the Loyalists described the killings of various IRA members which drove SF to the negotiating table as “putting manners on Sinn Féin”.
