There have been plenty pointing it out too, though. And, ultimately, his later actions, whilst perhaps not atoning for his earlier involvement, are still important in bringing about the peace process.

Indeed, without terrorists stopping being terrorists it would be difficult to end it. But if credit's due, it's to the majority of us who don't go down the terrorism route in the first place. (Not sure why you mention the more balanced attitudes, they don't make up for those that aren't?)

Uh-huh. I'm not sure McGuinness was so much rehabilitated rather than just changed approach when the violence proved counter-productive. And that's still a good thing. My problem is with those who are white washing the bad side out of their comments, I don't think that achieves anything good.

There's plenty waxing lyrical about Chuck Berry too.

I really miss choose your own adventure books.... although it was always hard to resist the temptation to cheat.

Definitely remember warlock of firestop mountain... I'm sure all the others were from the same series too.

The problem is that this really wasn't far off Corbyn's answer to how much we'll be borrowing....

"Meanwhile, readers will be invited to turn to page 51 for reduced borrowing or page 60 for another £435bn in additional spending commitments."

We're going to renationalise everything, in a clearly costed plan, but I'm going to avoid answering the question how much we're going to need to borrow cause we're investing in the "future".

I can understand why he's pretty much only campaigning in massively safe havens cause its the only way he'd get away with saying crap like that and still get a resounding cheer. It's amazing how well it all came across considering it was mostly bollocks; an excellent PR exercise. May even work.
