Republicans can't handle the truth!

There can rarely have been as unseemly a row (even in the context of Northern Ireland local government) as that taking place in Omagh Council’s chambers currently, over the wording of a monument to the victims of the 1998 bomb.

Even in the context of a tragedy which encompassed both sides of the community so utterly and which caused almost universal derision, Sinn Fein deems it appropriate to indulge their impulse to re-write history.

If any proof were needed that the search for “truth” that they recently marched to promote is a one way process, surely the attempted excision of the phrase “dissident Republican car bomb” is it.
