As if to testify to the content-free nature of the electoral battle within Nationalism (it’s not much better in Unionism), here are three distinct views on the speech Gerry Adams made at the beginning of the campaign, all published in the last few days. Bertie Ahern, who is unimpressed given the continuance of recruitment for the IRA. Gerry Adams, who believes internal discussions can’t go on for too long. And Anthony McIntyre, who’s lost count of the endless procession of historic moments in recent times at least. Altogether now!
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.
