McCord Rejected for Victims Commissioner

Raymond McCord Jr, the Belfast Telegraph is reporting, has been rejected as a candidate for the Victims Commissioner post, because he isn’t good at PR and doesn’t haven’t knowledge of the Troubles. He was not interviewed for the position. A total of 46 people have applied and that has been shortlisted to 13 who have been interviewed. One would have thought he would have been a strong contender. It seems rattling the establishment is not a qualification that is being sought? Or maybe interrupting the Secretary of State’s afternoon nap was his big mistake
