ADMIT YOU WERE IN THE ‘RA GERRY, SAYS PETER ‘RED BERET’ ROBINSON

 

Peter ‘Red Beret’ Robinson

ONE-TIME ULSTER Resistance cheerleader Peter Robinson threw down the gauntlet to Gerry Adams last night and told him: Admit you were in the IRA.

In a speech to DUP councillors in Antrim, Mr Robinson¬†said that Sinn Fein needed to come clean about its members’ pasts.

Mr Adams has consistently denied that he was in the IRA, never mind being the ‘Officer Commanding’ (OC) in the Provos.

“If republicans genuinely want the truth to be told let Gerry Adams admit he was in the IRA. Let him disclose he was in its leadership,” said the First Minister, who once proudly wore the Ulster Resistance’s red beret during an Ulster Hall rally in the 1980s.

“Let republicans confess responsibility for the Northern Bank robbery and let Sinn Fein leaders who have been named for involvement in terrorism by their former IRA colleagues come clean.”

I’ve never been in the IRA, says Gerry Adams

Mr Robinson also criticised a speech made in Westminster earlier this week by Sinn Fein’s national chairman Declan Kearney.

In a speech on reconciliation Mr Kearney said that unionists had to accept their role in the past and referred to the role of DUP politicians in Ulster Resistance. He also accused Mr Robinson of living in “a time-warp”.

There have been tensions recently between Sinn Fein and the DUP over delays to Executive decisions.

Last week the first minister claimed Sinn Fein’s fear of the SDLP was “often paralysing decisions in the Executive”.

    For G. Adams to continually deny that he was ever i the IRA is beyond a joke. This is the man who sent out young men to do his dirty work and then when they were caught and went on hunger strike he told them to carry on knowing firm well that a deal had been done with the British government. This man deliberately steered the strikers to their death just to get publicity for the shinners. The British and Irish governments should both release all the intel on this man and let the world know exactly how callous he is and has been.
