McGuinness being remembered as a peacemaker is much the same as remembering Jimmy Saville for his charity work.

Don't forget that they knowingly watched as they detonated the bomb that killed Earl Mountbatten and the two children with him. Le Tocq has blood on his hands too if he chooses to laud cowardly terro...

I also thought the Queen made an interesting comment when meeting Mr McGuinness. He asked her how she was and she replied "well I'm still alive!"

Why do cowardly terrorists always kill the wrong people?
