Cartoon – A shared future (of talking to inanimate objects)

Gerry Adams and Prince Charles cartoon
On Tuesday May 19 2015 Prince Charles met and shook hands with Gerry Adams in Galway, composing a vista unimaginable until recently. The Colonel-in-Chief of the parachute regiment meets with Uachtaráin Sinn Féin, arch-monarchist and arch-republican.

    Unionists call on SF to stop pestering the Royals. “We can’t even get to shake their hands for Shinners. ” Claim both the DUP & UUP….

    Gestures have their place so this Royal visit is to be welcomed as such. Equally,the Bakkymurphy families are entitled to be there to remind us of the cause.
    I do hope that you are not lumping them in your reference to SF? True, GK and Paul Maskey joined them for their own reasons but that is not the responsibility of the families.

  • Dixie Elliott

    No one, other than yourself, reading my above post could even remotely claim that I was lumping the Ballymurphy Families in with the Pacified Shinners.

    Greeting the Royals has nothing to do with gestures nor reconciliation given that the same party reverted to using the sectarian card in North Belfast and F/STyrone. I put that to Declan Kearney on Twitter and his response was to block me.

  • Granni Trixie

    Sorry if I have struck a nerve, never intended that, rather I wanted clarification.
    I do beg to differ that not one could “remotely” interpret your reference as including the protesting families, given that some Relublican MLAs joined them in the protest.

    Whatever – the important thing is that we seem ultimately to be on the same page.

  • Dixie Elliott

    We’re not on the same page regarding the ‘Republican MLAs’….I prefer Adamsite MLAs myself.
