Don't Say "Pardon"

The DUP is right to demand that the list of those IRA hands who received the Royal Prerogative of Mercy ought to be placed in the House of Commons Library.

But that demand ought to have come from the SDLP.

The Sinn Féin great and good of today needed Royal Pardons in respect of their yesterdays. Everyone knew that. But it is altogether a different matter to have it on the record.

And they, staunch Irish Republicans, submitted to this, the Royal Prerogative of Mercy.

Double electoral gold for the SDLP.
