On a recent radio programme Sinn Fein's Gerry Kelly talked about Margaret Thatcher having no regard for the ordinary person in the street.

So what are Gerry Kelly's, Sinn Fein's and the Provisional IRA's credentials for caring about the ordinary person in the street?

La Mon House? Oxford Street? Ordinary people burnt alive and blown to bits?

What a way to care for their fellow Irish citizens. What a way to unite the ordinary people of Ireland. What a hypocrite.
