Madam - Gerry Adams tells us the Northern Ireland peace process is under great strain,

and there could be trouble brewing. But Mr Adams is a TD in the South's parliament and it must be very difficult for him to keep both ships afloat.
When, we wonder, does a 'process' become complete and is twenty years not sufficient time for him and all the factions to have moved on up there?
Gerry can't be suggesting in some strange way that we are under threat, surely.

John Bruton now a loose cannon
Madam - I feel that John Bruton should be told that, if we needed his advice on our past political landscape, we would ask him for it.
Obviously the 1916 Rising should not have had to happen, but those who brought it about believed there was a need for it.
I feel he should keep his mouth shut and stop embarrassing the present government, which he at one time led. To my mind, he is a political loose canon with too much to say. A little wing clipping would do no harm!
