Prime Minister David Cameron offered an extraordinary apology on Tuesday for the 1972 killings of 14 unarmed demonstrators by British soldiers in Northern Ireland, saying that a long-awaited judicial inquiry had left no doubt that the “Bloody Sunday” shootings were “both unjustified and unjustifiable.”
What kind of Conservative is this? Margaret Thatcher would have jumped off a bridge before apologizing for murdering Irish people. What happened to Conservatives oppressing the Irish at every turn? Have they decided to focus solely on something so banal as dismantling the British welfare state?
Moreover, just what is Thatcher thinking about this tonight?
Update: Speaking of the Iron Lady, the YouBetcha Lady hopes to meet her hero.
