Why is anyone surprised by Barry McElduff’s disgusting “joke” about the Kingsmill murders?
He belongs to a party whose president is on the record as having justified IRA murders; not a few of his party colleagues have been convicted of terrorist offences; his leader in Northern Ireland has been to at least one recent IRA commemoration.
Sinn Fein’s culture is one of the glorification of murder.
It is sometimes said that a certain celebrity is a stupid person’s idea of what an intelligent person is like [a slight which has been applied to broadcaster Stephen Fry, writer Aldous Huxley, and a number of other people].
Gerry Adams, Michelle O’Neill, Barry McElduff and the late Martin McGuinness are a stupid person’s idea of what peacemakers are like.
