If he thought he had 6 years, he wouldn't have retired. Merely taken a "short hiatus".

very sad and shocking news. I know his association with the IRA was controversial but he was a vital contributor to the peace process in the end.Northern Ireland can ill afford to lose him right now

Do we celebrate the death of a terrorist or mourn the passing of a politician?

 

I know which I am doing.

May his victims rest in peace, and may their families finally find it.

I'm undecided as to whether to mourn his passing or celebrate it.  Peace may have been achieved but there was plenty of collateral damage

I think he lasted well given how bad he looked during his last interview post resignation. He was stoned on morphine 3 months back.

He was on my short list, and might have made the team had my Norn Iron correspondent replied in any useful way to my email asking

"Do you know what's wrong with Martin McGuinness?"

 

Anyway he's hit no 2 on my Rotten DP.

Hopefully you will now change your avatar to something more pleasing to the eye?

True - he cannot be trusted. :P

 

I wish there was the option to hide certain avatars, like the option to hide selected signatures.

On reflection I am glad he is dead. He may have worked towards peace in recent years, but he probably involved himself in the deaths of many innocent folk and he never showed any regret for that.

He also gives me my fifth hit of the year!
