Ben found this in the Times (27 August):

Gerry Adams can contain himself no longer. The Sinn Fein leader made this touching declaration at a hunger strike commemoration:

"The Republican struggle was not, and is not, about bums on executive seats - even a bum as delectable as Martin McGuinness's."

Have we been missing something? I had always thought that the Republican struggle was about bombs on non-executive streets.

One lives and learns.

I left some poison about the Irish & Those Awful (!) Kennedies over at Libertarian Alliance or somewhere just to be a little SOB, but I get so tired of all these fool "victims!" Bad things happen out of /our/ foul depths and the only way to deal is stand up together against...ourselves.
