“observed rather than celebrated”?

Mick earlier blogged Anthony McIntyre’s piece on the controversy engulfing the Adams family.

For some the sun is shining and the temptation to make hay is irresistible. For others the sun is setting on the long political career of the Sinn Fein boss of bosses, hastened no doubt by the latest controversy. Given the dark backdrop it is something to be observed rather than celebrated.

Of course SF loyalists will claim political haymaking and agenda driven reportage in any damaging coverage for Adams in this case. However, my mind is drawn back to SF’s response to a political enemy being found guilty on similar charges. The barely concealed glee at Vincent McKenna being exposed as a child abuser from An Phoblacht and across web pages at the time will make any claims from SF of ‘point scoring’ off personal tragedy ring very hollow.
