Only one person in this photograph is a murderer. I personally won't forgive or forget.
One thing that I've learned over the years JS is that you can forgive WITHOUT forgetting; it's quite liberating...
It'll never happen. One day I'll piss on his grave.
Classy! Prince Phillip will lap up your urine! Go the British Empire! Go the indigenous Australians!Gold!
Come back with a name when your home town has been bombed.
I agree James, some poeple can never be worthy of forgiveness, either because they are a murdering souless prick, or a coward who beats his wife and children.Unredeemable by my standards, I leave the forgiveness of those types to God.
Thankfully, James, there are many who have suffered the consequences of devastating injustices who have managed to move on so that the next generations aren't blighted with the same hatred. Also for every horrendous act by an individual there is often a background of neglect and abuse. Most perpetrators are victims themselves and while that never can excuse the behaviour, it is up to all of us to ensure that the cycle of violence and hatred is stopped.
she should have head butted the murdering sod
bsprout... your comment would have a lot more gravitas if your photo showed the "compassionate head tilt", much favoured by panty wetting hand-wringing leftists like yourself.
Anonymous..thanks I was struggling for a reply to that pull through commie bsprout.You put it very succinctly..limp wristed prick that he is, typical watermelon, no backbone.And to think that the tosser is teaching our southern kids...I despair I really do.
Lofty, Jabba and Anonymous, no point in letting facts get in the way of blind, ignorant hatred, eh? McGuinness was as much a murderer as the Queen and his good natured manner was widely reported as being pivotal in negotiating peace. "In May 2003, transcripts of telephone calls between McGuinness and British officials including Mo Mowlam, the then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, and Jonathan Powell, Tony Blair's Chief of Staff, were published in a biography of McGuinness entitled From Guns to Government. The tapes had been made by MI5 and the authors of the book were arrested under the Official Secrets Act. The conversations showed an easy and friendly relationship between McGuinness and Powell. He joked with Powell about Unionist MPs while Mowlam referred to him as "babe" and discussed her difficulties with Blair. In another transcript, he praised Bill Clinton to Gerry Adams. " (Wikipedia)I'm not sure what purpose "pissing on his grave" and being "head butted" by the Queen will serve.KS certainly attracts an interesting level of intellectual discourse.
We are not all blessed with the same propensity for intellectual discourse as you are bsprout. This is an emotional issue for many, and that is reflected in the responses.However the atrocities in Northern Ireland were not a result of neglect and abuse; they were the byproduct of generations of sectarian hatred and ingrained biogtry. Let's be glad that the leaders have found the strength to move on, and consign The Troubles to history.
