Ah Jesus, now we'll have to suffer weeks of sanctimonious bullsh*t from the meejia.
Cue vast swathes of 'bomber to chuckle brother' articles.

So now that he's dead, what can be said about him that our libel laws prevented while he was breathing ?

RIP.

I saw him speak once.

He will be remembered in history, unlike many of his detractors.

Will there be shots fired over the coffin? By IRA convention there will be but in the current political environment is that the best idea??

2 utterly ridiculous questions in 1 post. What time warp are you people stuck in, or is it just willful ignorance?

It is tragic that he never got to enjoy a proper retirement away from Ulster's dramas.

Inarguably A man with the courage of his convictions whether you agreed with him or not.
We need more of his kind.

RIP
