The Blanket

Peace Negotiators

A Chara,

I presume Ms Mary Lou McDonald was negotiating on behalf of Sinn Féin and the people that Sinn Féin represents, ie the people of Ireland.

Firstly, welcome back to the Letters page.

Adams would contend that Mary Mac Donald was negotiating 'peace' on behalf of the PSF electorate. Tony Blair at the GFA talks represented the Sovereign constituency of the British people, the Sovereign constituency of the Irish people was not represented. Indeed Irish sovereignty was forfeited by the Irish participants as a precondition to entry. To the British PSF represents a sectional interest within its sovereign realm arguing for better treatment from those whom they agreed where their lawful government. With negotiators like that who needs.....etc, etc.

Is Mise, C. Mac Aonghusa
