Beeb tramples on victims' memory

THE BBC showed its true colours when it gave airtime to Gerry Adams on Remembrance Sunday – the one day of the year when the countless victims of Sinn Fein/IRA ought to able to mourn their loved ones without his pernicious intrusion.

In airing this, the BBC danced on the graves of those slain at Enniskillen, in particular.

Giving Gerry Adams airtime on this most sacred of days is akin to inviting Hitler to justify his actions on Holocaust Day. Shame on the BBC. It cares more about the victim-maker than his victims.
