Apocalypse Watch: Sinn Fein On Speaking Terms With Queen
show comments
  • I understand the Queen’s visit to the Republic of Ireland came off well last year. When we were visiting Ireland (several weeks before her visit) there seemed to be some skepticism as to whether it was even a good idea. So maybe there has been a sequence of things that have been done right. I’m not sure what they are, though.

    It is part of a strategy to normalize the North, cement Sinn Féin as the natural party of Govt. in the North, and to help it continue its progress to natural party of Govt. in the south.

    There has been a lot of hard work involved on both sides. I suppose there is also what David Goldman alluded to as well. The generation that fought are now old men. Everyone is tired of fighting now.
