Is McGuinness a safe bet?

Sir -- My nephew applied for a career in the Defence Forces. He failed, due to not being security cleared (regarding a very minor incident).

Martin McGuinness has applied to be the figurehead of this country, which consists of being Commander in Chief of the Defence Forces. Has he been security cleared?

If he becomes head of this country, I think the State will be open to redress of wrongs for all the people in the past who were refused employment due to not being security cleared.
