  1. Thanks 1952esther.

    Of course, no-one knows what position folks like Mairead Farrell or Bobby Sands would have taken on the ‘new dispensation’ if they were still alive. But, at the same time, I see no reason to hand over to the Shinners a monopoly on these fine socialist-republicans. They lived, fought and died as socialist-republicans, and thus as revolutionaries – more than can be said of the Adams cabal and their brown-nosers.
