Question time questions on the IRA question..

Question time was broadcast from Sterling last night. Once again some of the best value was provided in the form of the text messages coming in from the broadcast audience on Ceefax page 155. Here’s some I scribbled down in haste:

“Gerry Adams is just employing a rearguard action. Mr Adams is out in the cold and he should stay there”.

“The cynics should give Gerry Adams a chance. He means well”.

“Why is a Protestant bomb or gun not considered a danger?”

“Gerry Adams gaining political point? I thought that’s what politicians did?”

“Adams can appeal to the IRA at any time. Why now?”

“The IRA didn’t start the war – the English did.”

“I think Gerry Adams has learned a lot from Tony Blair about meaningless soundbites”.

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.
