Historic call from Adams?

In what seems like something approaching the hysteria surrounding Sinn Fein and the IRA over the last few months, it’s easy to miss the significance of Gerry Adams’ appeal to those who know know anything about the killing of Robert McCartney to report what they know. As one Unionist commentator told Slugger, “five months ago it wouldn’t have happened never mind five years ago”.

Although as Catherine McCartney points out:

“The bottom line is that, until those who committed Robert’s murder and their accomplices are brought to justice and appear in court, we will not accept that everything that can be done has been done.”

No evidence has yet been forthcoming.

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.
