In Uncategorized on March 21, 2017 by kmflett

With the death of Martin McGuinness a number of balanced respects have been made from the likes of Ian Paisley Jr and Tony Blair, which suggest an interesting historical context in themselves, slightly different from the ‘Pitman to Parliament’ genre of working class politicians.

But in the age of social media it is much easier to be one-dimensional about things than ever before. The world however is rarely one-dimensional or even binary.

Below is a link to a Guardian interview with McGuinness in 2012  on his love for cricket.
