On the 20th aniversary of the Omagh bombing where 29 died, 2 more later and 220 injured a memorial will be held by still grieving families. No one was charged for the atrocity that was carried out by an IRA splinter group.
It must be hard that during the tears and prayers an IRA boss will spend the day publicising his recipe book!

No-one was charged nor ever will be because they all have their 'comfort letters', while British soldiers who served over there will be exempted from the risk of prosecution on the day they die and not before. That's how we do things in this sick, pathetic country.

There was no shortage of atrocities in the "troubles" and I find it hard to think of how Gerry can show his face in public.
Then again, when you look at South Africa post-apartheid, the treatment of deClerk, Bother and others, just how long is the list of gross offenders? And that was against their own citizens (even if perceived as 'untermenschen').

I will not forget the closing scenes of "Cry Freedom" as the police opened fire on the high school students nor the closing 'credits'.
