Adams attacked the government for austerity cuts in relation to welfare but his attack merely exposed his own economic illiteracy.
I drove away Jean McConville. I don't know who gave the instructions to execute her. Obviously it was decided between the General Headquarters staff and the people in Belfast. Gerry Adams would have been part of that negotiation as to what was to happen to her. I had a call one night and Adams was in a house down the Falls Road and she'd been arrested by Cumann [IRA's female unit] women and held for a couple of days.
The other day Adams was back in Belfast for the unveiling of a mural about Pat Finucane, so he can't say we should all forget the past. But he seems to forget his own past. There is a Sinn Fein strategy of trying to rewrite history and remove the guilt of the IRA. That must never be allowed to happen and the more that Sinn Fein attack other political parties in the Republic the better, because the more they will be reminded of their own bloody past.
