I’m not a fan of the monarchy, much less Gerry Adams. Whose words I heard spoken by the voice of an actor when I was a kid, as they weren’t allowed to be broadcast on tv. The IRA were responsible for murdering Lord Louis Mountbatten , Charles’s uncle in 1979. Adams was a part of the IRA leadership in 1970’s. There may not directly be blood on his hands but knowledge or some form of culpability for sure. It’s a brave new world.
Also weird that Sinn Fein were being touted as a left leaning, liberal, anti austerity party as opposed to their rightwing conservative DUP rivals only a few weeks ago during the general election.
