Politics of colonisation come home to roost

Tom McGurk has an excellant article today where he looks at the IRA move in relation to politics in the 26 counties

I have never read the Buisness Post much before but find it a great read and the calibre of reporting is a world away from the sick Sindo or Tribune.

McGurk argues "That huge numbers of six county folk fought and died to establish Dáil Éireann is clearly a chapter excised from Liz's formative Workers Party re-education.And, indeed that the party she now deigns to deputy-lead was itself originally founded by activists principally from the six counties. Could it be that now,with the shadow of the gunman hopefully disappearing from the scene, the entire post-partitionist political establishments, north and south, feel a new and not entirely comfortable wind blowing?"
