The Wikileaks are interesting are they not? Vatican feelings hurty, and now Gerry Adams doing his usual look over there line of defence.
Standing over the kitchen sink this morning I listened to the very glib goalpost moving spin master deliver his rebuttal to Newstalk over wikileaked reports that he ( Gerry Adams) and Martin McGuinness knew that The Northern Bank was going to be robbed back in ’04.
Gerry, sounding like he could barely contain his mocking laugh, pretty much laid the blame of such a report on the cloven feet of Bertie Ahern, citing electoral jealousy as the route cause of hostility.
‘Pffft’ I said, as Gerry then spoke winningly of how the shinners only want to help the people of Ireland to get out of the mess cloven footed Yellow Mac wearers like Bertie caused. It was * quite* the performance and if I didn’t think Gerry Adams was a total psychopath I’d be mildly impressed by the pary he shows for our lots.
Also assuming I wiped by memory bank clean of what and who the Shinners associated with for, oh, the bulk of my upbringing. You know, in their capacity as political wing for that merry band of bombers, kidnappers and slaughterers of their fellow-man, the IRA.
If Gerry Adams told me today was Monday, I’d nod and check my calender just the same. And I’m glad this kind of stuff is coming out now while he’s on the election trail.
‘Does you have any skeletons in the closet?’ The Newstalk guy asked.
Normally that would be a euphemism, but in Adams case, it could be taken literally.
