First off, watch The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas on a Saturday night, and come away wondering at how people can do that.
Then wake up on a Sunday to find that the same murdering, idiotic, lowlife cunts that we thought had disappeared were back at it.
And then, just to add idiocy to injury, you see our good ol’ political leaders falling back into the stupid mindsets that didn’t help in the eighties and nineties. You see Gerry Adams saying this is ‘counterproductive’, rather than an absolute wrong. You see Peter Robinson worrying about ‘those who hate the Union’, as opposed to those who will kill innocents in cold blood. You see Reg Empey and Mark Durkan talking in ways that don’t help.
In short, you see people acting as if this isn’t a giant leap backwards, but as if it’s the way it’s always been.
