Oh no! Another scurrilous accusation that Sinn Fein is simply the sanitised face of the IRA.
A SINN Fein TD is believed to have been involved in 50 murders during the Troubles, new documents reveal. Secret internal communications within the British government suggest that Dessie Ellis, then a member of the IRA, was forensically linked to the deaths in the Republic and in Northern Ireland. And another communication dealing with Mr Ellis refers to him as a “leading PIRA” (Provisional IRA) member.
Get that? Forensically linked. 50 MURDERS.
Still, let’s leave the past..and the bodies..behind us. Even the Sandy Hooks shooter couldn’t manage 50. But he was VOTED in to the Irish Parliament by the nice people of Dublin North-West so that makes OK. Right?
Next thing you know some rogues will say Adams and McGuinness are steeped in the blood of innocents. Where oh where will all this carping end?
