    MMCG met the Queen of England in 2012 and there was little or no outrage from the Shinner grassroots.

    I think he realised eventually these 'Grand Gestures' were just not appreciated by those at Home

    - he realised he was being DUPed.....

    Yet today the wind sweeps through the hallowed halls of Stormont

    - as the Honourable Members have not been seen in months.....

    We all know that it was Martin McGuinness who pulled the plug over somewhat spurious reasons and even since his death it is obvious that there is no real stomach within the Party to go back in again to face more of the same from Auntie Arlene and Co.

    So what actually triggered the disillusionment with the Peace Process?

    - what was the straw that broke the camels back as they say in certain parts

    Well curious note the following

    - It was Marty showing up at a soiree to launch yet another portrait of Britain's most famous Celebrity that proved the tipping point:



    That was in November last year when McGuinness travelled to London for another Co-operation Ireland event, the unveiling of a portrait of Queen Elizabeth by the Northern Ireland artist Colin Davidson and attended by the queen. At the time it was viewed by many republicans as one grand gesture too many because these acts of generosity were viewed as not being reciprocated by Arlene Foster and the DUP. It was the start of the slide towards McGuinness walking away from the Northern Executive

    McGuinness gave Sheridan some gyp about that engagement. “I met him next day in Stormont. He gave off to me about it because he got a lot of grief from his own people,” Sheridan recalls.

    Sheridan told him that other leaders from the North and the Republic had also attended the event and that if McGuinness wasn’t in attendance what would people have said. Still, he understands that thereafter, between the political pressures and his illness, McGuinness “began to feel it was getting away from him”.


    IRA ceasefire 20 years on: 'I walked away. Then the car exploded'

    That woman's Trouble!

    But lets hope there are no more 'Troubles'!
    Thats a Shacking Picture......Did Martin McGuinness stand in for the Queen for the Posing....That could be Martin in Drag.......Just as well they were seen in the same place together a few times.........

    No, but if he comes to Ireland in 2018 she will have to meet with him. If he goes to NI she will also have to give him a warm reception.
