McGuinness plays victim in election he cannot win

I had originally intended to use this week's column to look at how the presidential election campaign was going. I had planned to throw my eye quickly over the seven candidates, their campaigns and maybe even their chances, with just around 10 days to go.

But then I heard the near hissy fit thrown by Martin McGuinness and almost the entire Sinn Fein organisation after Wednesday night's Prime Time debate. McGuinness took considerable exception to the questioning he received at the hands of Miriam O'Callaghan. He felt he was the victim of 'trial by media'.
