The Blanket

Topsy Turvy World, Rhetorical questions


Frank Harvey • 30 August 2004

Wasn't it the Provos who fingered Paul Hill in the first place and then sat back and let the him take the penalty? Maybe having someone put away helped take the heat off them?

Wasn't it ironic that if Hill hadn't been locked up, he'd still have been a discredited and undesireable wanna-be, he'd never have become "respectable" to the American "Irish", never become a trophy for a Kennedy woman anxious to get close to a "whiff of cordite", she would never have taken Paul to show him off to her Clinton friends and so he could never helped to get Gerry's visa or make Gerry a respectable White House visitor?

Wasn't it Paul who helped Gerry get to his place at the Peace Table, far more than Paul has ever been credited?

Maybe your man Kevin Byrne isn't Continuity RUC, or even a Brit, maybe he's just a Provo trying to decommission some of the opposition without hurting their kneecaps?
