He has condemned the Provisional IRA's decision to seal off a number of its arms dumps as "an overt act of treachery", "treachery punishable by death" under IRA General Army Order Number 11.

Nice man with a deluded political vision, I remember listening to him about 20 years ago.. jaysus he was extreme, would remind you mad mullahs preaching Jihad today.

Either way, the members of his family I encountered were good sould, to whom I offer my condolences.

Whatever you may think of his politics, he was a hugely significant figure. For good or ill.

First thing that springs to my mind is my old Aunt-God rest her-who always referred to him derisively as "bucktooth".

They check myriad clinical criteria,pulse,heart rate,things that indicate no sign of life,
Mistakes are sometimes made,but they have had it down to a fine art for sometime now.
Most instructive and comprehensive - many thanks, you are clearly experienced and expert in such matters. Maybe you might drop around to the house the next time I accidentally drive over the cat?
