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.
