SF's hypocrisy strikes again

If Sinn Fein has a moral compass, it lacks fixed reference points.

How else are we to explain Gerry Adams' public support for a Ballymurphy inquiry, while saying that the truth about the abduction, murder and secret burial of Charlie Armstrong, "may be an issue of secondary importance"?

Logically, this means Sinn Fein expects better human rights standards from British soldiers than from the Provisionals. And when it comes to equality, west Belfast people are more equal than those from south Armagh.
