The calculated cynicism is staggering.
Martin McGuinness has told a rally in Londonderry that his “heart goes out” to the relatives of British soldiers and RUC officers who died during the Troubles. He was addressing a crowd at Free Derry Corner ahead of his bid to become President of Ireland.
How touching. Given that his “heart goes out” to those Security personnel blown to pieces and shot to death by HIS IRA, (That’s HOW they died) I am sure that he will now be providing police with the names of his associates who DID the killing that characterised his period in control of the IRA in that area. Not to do so would indicate that McGuinness is prepared to say anything in order to distance himself from the crimes carried out under HIS command, in HIS name, by HIS IRA.
