THE Prime Minister has promised the relatives of the Omagh bomb victims that those responsible for the atrocity will not be given an amnesty. However, if the bombing had happened about four months earlier Blair wouldn’t have been able to give that assurance – and those behind the worst single slaughter of the Troubles wouldn’t be facing a day in jail, even if caught… Kinda makes you think.
Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
