Is The IRA Past Of Martin McGuinness Being Whitewashed?
Iain Dale will not mourn Martin McGuinness, but he will mourn his victims.
Too many of the tributes to Martin McGuinness have whitewashed his IRA past, says a passionate Iain Dale.
"I can't mourn Martin McGuinness," said the LBC presenter, "But I can mourn all of the people who fell victim to his acts of terror over two decades.
"He was an IRA commander...and I could even bring myself to forgive him for a lot of that if he had actually acknowledged what he had done while he lived.
"But instead he's taken the coward's way out: he's taken all of his secrets to the grave."
Iain continued by picking out some of the reflections on McGuinness's death that most struck him, including this tweet from Jon Snow:
