Who are Sinn Fein to criticise?

Published 04/07/2011

It appears fairly obvious that Paul Priestley (News, June 30) acted improperly and, as such, required a reprimand.

But criticism of the head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service seems somewhat hypocritical coming from Sinn Fein, who have unrepentant and unconvicted murderers in their midst.

Is it not time for the electorate to question this expensive farce of a Government?

I recently had reason to again read about Deitrich Bonhoeffer and it struck me that, unlike Lord Bannside, he was true to his principles and did not capitulate to threats - even the threat of death.
