•Surely it is time to decommission the weapons of mass-distraction regarding Martin McGuinness's push for the Park? We can soon expect to see the charismatic Derry man marching about the countryside with a Carmelite in one arm and a ballot box in the other, as he completes his post-modern transformation into a God-fearing decent man on a mission to resurrect old Ireland from material damnation.
People will quickly see through the glassy-eyed recalling of what our fore-fathers won and lost in the name of freedom and the shallow talk of sacrifice and struggle in the pursuit of higher things.
That armed struggle involved car-bombings and carnage. The innocent civilians who died were not consulted about the "sacrifice" they were being called upon to make.
