The Circle is Complete

In the first of two from Newshound today, Liam Clarke acutely observes the endorsement of criminalisation by SF at Stormont. Republicans have to laugh or they’ll cry – it does not get more farcical than this. Accuse Gerry Adams of having been in the IRA and you accuse him of engaging in criminal activity – so the party asserts. Didn’t 10 men die protesting that very label? “Ten men died to prove they weren’t criminals and now Sinn Fein is tacitly acknowledging that it was a crime to be in the IRA. I never thought I’d see the day,” says Richard O’Rawe. Read it and weep.
