Sometimes I can only laugh at the hatred and paranoia which some commentators on the blogosphere show towards Republicans. In the wake of the Donaldson affair, I saw a very obvious example of this when a commentator on ATW or Slugger (I can’t remember which) started into a paranoid spiel as to how Republicans must have been responsible for the murder because Gerry Adams knew so much about the situation so soon after the story broke. Remembering this, I had a little chuckle when reading today’s Irish News which told of the real reason why Gerry seemed so well prepared with early knowledge of the killing –
It was because Peter Hain rung him to tell him!
Back to the drawing board for the conspiracy theorists, methinks!
