Owen Jones: It’s Right to Apologise For Supporting IRA

sinn

Corbynista columnist Owen Jones distanced himself from John McDonnell’s “bombs and bullets” IRA comments on the Daily Politics, saying there was no defence for supporting violence:

“There is no defence for any support for the IRA whatsoever. Apologising for it was absolutely the right thing to do.”

Regular readers will remember that Owen’s views on the IRA weren’t always so clear. In fact, a young Owen once wrote:

I militarily support the IRA against the British State”

Good to see both McDonnell and OJ have changed their views…

Meanwhile DUP leader Nigel Dodds tore McDonnell a new one:

As Dodds says, McDonnell “had no role whatsoever in the peace process… these remarks were in 2003, the Belfast Agreement was in 1998…”
