LIam Adams hands himself in..

Yesterday apparently… in Sligo… but he could not be arrested since the guards did not have the correct European arrest warrant…

  • Only Asking

    I wonder why the news of it is only getting out now?

  • percy

    indeed?
    How long do the papers take to prepare?

  • Only Asking

    It wouldn’t take a whole day thats for sure. RTE news said he has made himself available. This is the beginning of the process now, and hopefully Aine can get the closure she needs. I wonder was any pressure brought to bear on Adams by the RM in the south?

  • Seamus

    Had he been sincere he would have handed himself into the psni to cut all the red tape.

  • Only Asking

    Seamus for many who have been inside, I think the obvious way to deal with the police is not to make it easy for them. It doesn’t matter the process has begun, and maybe he hopes to string it out for reasons only known to himself. What ever the reason they know where he is, and maybe he will face pressure to go north.

  • John O’Connell

    So endeth Gerry Adams. The hard men of the Republican Movement won’t want to wait until all the detail comes out about the abuse that went on in the Adams family. Gerry is finished.

  • Only Asking

    Dream on John. Gerry has garnered a lot of sympathy out of this and will be laughing all the way to the polls.

  • Only Asking

    uh oh

    What we need now is not a political explanation of the IRA campaign, but a psychosexual one.

    Dont talk utter rubbish Adams will face tougher questins he has so far being all over the place on this his accounts and they simply dont add up.your pathatic post which was more in glee than anything else because you think adams is off the hook you culdnt be more wrong he will find it hard to survive for much longer.

  • al

    Seamus is right if he has nothing to hide would he not just go to the PSNI and get it over with. As I said on the other thread Im sure he would have known the guards could do bugger all.

    Surely now Gerry should advice him to get across the border and hand himself in.

    You are right John theres still lots to come out on all of this times dates which so far adams accounts simply dont add up once the digging for the truth comes adams is history.

  • John O’Connell

    Only asking

    laughing

    That’s the last thing Gerry will be doing.

    What we need now is not a political explanation of the IRA campaign, but a psychosexual one.

    That’s the last thing the IRA will want. Malachi hits the bullseye with that article you’ve linked to.

  • Only Asking

    aye paul, he’ll give up his position in sf, and in stormont, and hide in the woodwork over something that is now in the hands of the proper authorities.

    malachi is gloating,or something,mentioning the women in adams family – I mean he lived with the grandmother and had a handfull of sisters, why would he not speak warmly of them?

    A brother of Gerry Adams wanted on suspicion of sexually abusing his daughter has handed himself in to police.

    Liam Adams presented himself at a Garda station in Co Sligo in the Irish Republic on Monday evening.

    The younger brother of the Sinn Fein president is understood to have spoken for a number of hours with senior detectives about his alleged crimes in Northern Ireland before leaving the station.

    He should do the hounourable thing that he Adams should of done days ago and do what any other plitical party leader wold of done resign his position as SF leader.He should then use all his energies helping his neice who is the victim and the one who is suffering the appalling crimes.God bless her my thoughts are with her.

  • Paul

    I see only for asking is going into over drive spinning like mad pathatic.Adams is on the ropes and it wont take much more to knock him clean out.

  • Seamus

    Quite possable the leadership would rather just drop him now like a lead weight and by claiming what gerry has of his brothers position as a youth worker, that as soon as they became aware of the issue they removed the cancer.
    But what has gone before ? that perhaps the same leadership are helpless to remove him until he decides to jump himself.
    He has totally blown it and should sf`s leaders been a board of directors with any company he`d have been gone before the ink was dry on the issue.

    lMAO what a daft post your above post is stop digging try telling that to the media etc and everybody else whos wants to see justice for the victim in this scandal the likes of you percy and only for asking in the way you have posted with your damage limitation is quite frankly laughable.

  • joeCanuck

    Percy,
    Don’t feed the demented troll. If you don’t agree with him your comment is either daft or pathetic and you need to grow up.

  • percy

    all in yer head this damage limitation stuff paul,
    trying reading what we’re typing.

    I know I shouldn’t toy with you, but you’re really asking for it.
    you keep on digging, I’ll keep on trucking.

  • Seamus

    Why are none of the usual suspects coming to gerrys aid with their well drilled united front.
    Have they left him to his own devices which shows the true gerry when having to think for and explain himself out side the box absent of the great spin machine.
    Just about every thing he has rebutted so far has fallen on its nose and the longer it goes on, the further outside his comfort zone he finds HIMSELF alone.

  • Only Asking

    Hints of any sexual scandal in the wider Adams household would have been seized on gratefully by their opponents.

    Now Gerry feels able to go to the police and make a statement about alleged abuse carried out by his brother. His niece also felt able to involve the police in the first instance.

    If nothing else, their actions are a real commentary on how life has changed in Northern Ireland in the last decade.

    A good article here:

    No longer do Sinn Fein members have to have their arms twisted up their backs before they will admit through gritted teeth that perhaps the police are the proper authorities of law and order and should be given any information that will help their enquiries into any crime.

    The other day a Sinn Fein MLA from the New Lodge road area urged locals to shop the hoods who have been carrying out terrifying racial attacks on an Indian family in the area.

    Such a statement would have been unthinkable not so very long ago.

    It shows how the mindset of Sinn Fein has changed and challenges those unionists who argue that there is not sufficient public confidence to allow policing and justice powers to be devolved to the Executive.

    If Gerry Adams can admit to helping the police with their enquiries — in the widest sense of that phrase, it should be added — then we have fairly strong evidence of how widely the PSNI is accepted in Northern Ireland.

    you know when the likes of you post insults like you have with the personal abuse you have posted about me that it shows I have hit the nail on the head. and thats exactly what I intended to and intend to too to ex[pose gerry adams.You have admitted you are a west belfast repulican and the fact your great leader is under intense pressure and you are trying in vain to spin excuses the fact you cant take the unfolding news in this scandal you then start insulting me.conclusion folks game set and match to me.

    you are very welcome percy keep on trucking.please feel free

  • percy

    I musn’t joe,
    its just so tempting to say to a guy who is digging:
    “ya missed a bit over there”,
    and they’re off again with the rant. lol
    No more feed the troll, I promise
    This is too serious a subject a cara

    All the authorities in question in this matter will have to answer questions, and we await the outcome of that.
    Hopefully the secular world will be more upto the mark than the clerical world.

  • Seamus

    And now that his best and most loyal supporters see him for the fake that he really is and always has been.
    Will they now allow themselves to ponder on the fact that he is a compulsive liar and they should not be so quick to challenge the good word of individuals such as Richard O Rawe.

    Good post seamus theres being a few but they have failed mirably.you are right everything has fallen on its nose.Adams will hang himself he doing a pretty good job of it at he moment.its just a matter of time before he falls head first

  • Only Asking

    Not to assum what he’d think but I think Richard O’Rawe would much rather have Adams nailed over the hunger strike allegations he makes rather than over the mishandling of a family situation .

  • joeCanuck

    You have admitted you are a west belfast repulican (sic to both misspellings).

    That’s a surprising bit of news to a Canadian. I guess I flew across the ocean in a trice in someone’s fevered imagination. And I have a great leader too! It gets better and better. Makes sense of the saying “hung by one’s own petard”.
    Maybe Santa or his Mammy will bring a thesaurus to this word challenged ninny.

  • Seamus

    Percy
    No matter who fell short in their dutys on this issue, they will have some what an excuse in that they were only in possession of an aledgation, where as gerry has been consistant that he believed his niece was actually raped by his brother.
    Gerry allowed all of this including the lack of action by others.

    And I have a great leader too!

    Fully agree as i would have preferred that myself.
    However there are those that really believe gerry when he tells them a,b, or c as gospal.
    Who might just slip the blinkers to the side

    seems the sinners/trolls/spinners are trying to knock this thread off topic do keep on topic you lot.

  • percy

    seamus
    agreed, no-one comes out of this smelling of roses:
    culpability lies with Liam, negligence with the other parties.
    The rest is for the courts and enquiries.
