There were two quotes in the Irish News (30 January) that took my attention.
Newton Emerson observed that, 'Whatever disasters threaten Stormont, do not underestimate Caitriona Ruane's capacity to make things even worse.' I am sure that the majority of people, including many Sinn Fein voters, will agree with that assessment.
James Kelly, a veteran nationalist journalist, has a weekly column and this week he referred to what he described as 'the hidden scaly hand of the Orange Order'. Such nasty and sectarian language is typical of James Kelly and it is disappointing that the Irish News continues to provide him with a platform for such language.
