The hypocrisy of unionists laid bare

Published 11/03/2016

I have read with interest the complaints of unionists regarding the FAI and GAA commemorating 1916.

I will support the unionists complaining about this whenever I hear unionists complaining about the Larne gunrunning, because basically these two events were the same thing: violence - or the threat of violence - to put forward their political view.
