Sinn Fein must be congratulated for making history and giving N. Ireland it’s first ever Nationalist “prime minister”.
Last Thursday I gave my Number One vote to Sinn Fein and my other preferences to the Alliance and Green parties.
I’m 44 years in N. Ireland and I saw first hand, the killing and bombing on all sides.
SF / IRA were indeed responsible for a lot of killings and injuries.
As were the Loyalists, British Government, RUC and British Army.
Every side has blood on their hands.
We must think of the FUTURE while not forgetting the PAST.
I have always voted for SF as a protest vote and not a vote for the armed struggle.
Many modern countries were build on blood and death – Ireland, the UK, the USA, South Africa, Germany, etc.
It seems that tyranny will never give into reason but only to force
Just look at Putin and Russia today.
THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CURRENT UNIONISTS
The Unionists have run N. Ireland, badly for 100 years.
In recent years SF have, in the interests of democracy, played second fiddle to the DUP.
It’s now up to the DUP to show us whether they are DEMOCRATS or FACISTS.
And the PROTOCOL is no excuse for default.
