Deplorable as it is to see the apologist for Irish terrorism Adams basking in the glory of St Patrick’s day in New York, he should consider that the same people providing his elevation to appease the pro- Irish republican vote in USA will surely drop him once he has served their purpose.

Coming into the welcome of an Irish parlour could be followed by exit when expedient.

The mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio has outdone Pontius Pilate the Roman Prefect who at least gave the people a choice of Jesus Christ or Barabbas the terrorist.

I strongly suspect he would have declared a Barabbas Day.
