BTW.. that 'internal debate' has begun, you know

Just in case you missed the statements at the beginning of the election campaign.. Despite the announcement that followed Adams’s initial speech – that “The IRA will give his appeal due consideration and will respond in due course.” – Sinn Féin’s Gerry Adams tonight announced that the IRA has started an internal debate.. Ermmm.. weren’t they supposed to have started that ‘debate’ already?.. nothing on the Sinn Féin website yet.. Hmmm.. Either Dermot Ahern’s intervention has touched a nerve... or it’s the last week of an election campaign..

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.
