•Two candidates electrified the push for the Park: Martin McGuinness's transformation forsaking semtex for syntax; and David Norris, champion of gay rights.



It could be said of both that they are revolutionaries, men of courage who stood against the tide with a 'fudge the begrudges' abandon.

I would have been happy to vote for both.
