I was delighted to see that David Cameron has ruled out the spending of even MORE taxpayers cash on the Republican cause celebre, Pat Finucane.
The family of murdered solicitor Pat Finucane have cut short a meeting with David Cameron after the prime minister failed to order an inquiry into the killing. Mr Finucane was shot in 1989 by loyalist paramilitaries at his north Belfast home. His family have long campaigned for an independent public inquiry.
However at Tuesday’s meeting, Mr Cameron proposed a review conducted by a leading QC. Speaking outside Downing Street, Pat Finucane’s widow Geraldine told reporters she felt so angry she could hardly speak. Mr Finucane’s family said they were “insulted” at the proposal for a review of the case to be led by QC Desmond DeSilva. They said they would continue their campaign for an independent public inquiry and would not participate in the review.
Now, some allege that Pat Finucane was an IRA Money man, laudering cash for the Republicam movement band. We do know for a fact that his brothers were IRA enthusiastic terrorists. But the Finucane camp claim that Pat was a noble defender of human rights even as his brothers chose to try and take human life. There is no excuse for anyone taking his life, however, and the terrorists involved are scum. Just like Finucane’s IRA brothers. But enough cash has been lavished on the Finucane campaign, it’s time to stop.
