Wasn't a bad interview.. but why does Miriam O Callaghan insist on trying to answer her own questions ?
Plus, why do people in the media consistently ask people like Gerry Adams and Martin Mc Guinness why they didn't take the "John Hume route" from the beginning and get involved in the Civil Rights Movement ..
This is how the Establishment in Northern Ireland dealt with the Civil Rights Movement.. in 1968.. 4 years before the British Army opened fire with live rounds on a Civil Rights march in Derry

What the Irish media don't seem to realise, is that John Hume was vilified and hated by the Establishment in the 6 counties right throughout the Civil Rights campaign..
He only became a "political darling" of the Irish and British Governments, when the IRA campaign of fighting back began, because they wanted people to support a "political" resolution.. without admitting that they missed the boat when that solution was being asked for.. in effect they left the genie out of the bottle and only made John Hume a hero, when they were trying to get the genie back in..
Is it beyond most peoples comprehension to understand that... or will Miriam O Callaghan continue to ask really stupid questions without acknowledging what happened Hume when he tried to go.. the "peaceful route" ?
