    Default The Peace Process With Billy Wright Still Hovering Around?

    It's genuinely hard to believe that this individual was taken out without some level of collusion from the authorities!
    If he wasn't what would be the impact of still having him around?
    Mind you, Johnny 'Mad Dog' Adair (Simply The Best) is still in the UK and he seems to have quitened or been quitened down a lot!

    Wright was a lunatic. He won't be missed and his killers should be praised.

    A wee bit like pira finucane you mean ?
    Even with the usual caveats attached to opinion polls, a 65% to 17% majority for Northern Ireland remaining in the UK suggests little room for doubt.

    Wright was a nasty piece, one of many though. DUP have always been good at exploiting uneducated and disadvantaged, leading them to the brink and then abandoning them when the inevitable happens. Just look at the hoodied ranks of the flag protestors. When some of them end up in prison for the "cause", those who put them on the streets will tut tut and carry on as normal.

    Strongly disagree. His killer(s) were on the same sewer rat level as Wright. The last thing they deserve, is praise.

    That's not quite right. I do not think they abandon them. I remember seeing a rally where the "Reverend" William McCrea stood on a platform praising Wright despite the fact that he was a convicted felon.

    As he was a terrorist involved in a murder campaign one can only assume he would now be a Councillor/MLA/MP/TD or even DFM... as he is no longer alive one can only assume there are sports teams/grounds/competitions named after him or perhaps a children's playground would be more appropriate...
