“Michelle Gildernew was expressing her opinion and she is entitled to do that” – Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams on Spotlight’s election special tonight.. referring to the answer the Sinn Féin MP for Fermanagh/South Tyrone gave to a question on policing, and reporting “disaffected Provisionals or even a smaller republican group with guns”, during a recent edition of Radio Ulster’s Talkback.. when she was appearing as a representative of Sinn Féin. It is a shift from the ‘not answering hypotheticals’ answer but it’s unlikely to be a sufficient answer.
