Internment without trial

Over a period of 60 years from 1922 to 1996 a European Sovereign State interned without trial thousands of young females.

They handed them over to jailers who beat, humiliated and in many cases worked them to death and buried them in unmarked graves.

They forced them to work without pay under slave labour conditions whilst profiting from their output. No, this wasn’t Nazi Germany or Perfidious Albion, it was the Catholic Irish State whose sustained ill-treatment of those young women in the Magdalene laundries was infinitely worse than any methods allegedly used by the British Army in any of its counter-terrorist campaigns.

Next time Sinn Fein hold an anti-internment rally, maybe they will do it in O’Connell Street, Dublin, rather than than Royal Avenue, Belfast. Let him who is without sin, etc.
