The Widgery report was a white wash and the state covered up the truth for 38 years. The Saville inquiry was set up to tell the truth, something Gregory Campbell does not like to hear. The truth has been told in regards to Bloody Sunday. All the other murders (except for state murders as the state covered them up) should have been investigated by the RUC or the PSNI. If any justice has been failed, it was failed by either the RUC, the PSNI or the PPS and this needs to be recognised.

But so does every family who lost a relative during the Troubles.By singling out Bloody Sunday, as disgraceful as the actions of the soldiers were, one is in effect creating two tiers of victim.That is wrong.

A sickening display of sectarian, partisan denial. The small men of Unionism. Those of us old enough to remember will not be surprised, as Unionism has never once been able to look at it's own acts of violence and those of it's allies without some mealy mouthed attempt at equivocation and finger pointing at their political enemies. Where are the regular pro-Union commentators to this blog? They are conspicuous by their absence. Where are the faux, bleating, pro rule of law comments they are so fond of presenting. Where are the insincere wishes of support and solidarity for the families of victims? Are these only for the victims of their enemies?The report is not about who we were so much as who we are still… Wed 16 Jun 2010 08:10:48 GMT+1 Jimmy Cricket http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markdevenport/2010/06/waving_from_the_windows.html?page=42#comment6 The truth being outed about Bloody Sunday should and hopefully will be the first in a series of British government admissions of indefensible actions by its establishment, and the role it played in covering up state murder. Hopefully now we will get to see the Stalker report, more state murder of unarmed people, executed this time by Unionist forces. Then hopefully the truth will be outed about the role played by RUC Special Branch into the activities of Mount Vernon UVF which included, allowing and covering up of its agents murdering dozens of innocent people. If Unionists feel they have been slapped in the face then they need to be prepared for a few more. If Unionists need equality through an inquiry into Enniskillen then do demand it, but dont be surprised to find that your mainland government possibly played a part in it.

I almost clapped when I heard it. I was fascinated by the Rev. Lattimer, a truly inspirational individual (albeit a religious one! tut tut). If we had a lot more people like him on all sides I believe Derry could really be a special all-inclusive, embracing city. I'm going to stop now, embittered by the "This comment has been referred for further consideration. Explain" policy. If I choose to continue posting I'm going to have to keep comments short for fear of seeing them vanish at the click of a button.Love, PieMan Tue 15 Jun 2010 23:02:03 GMT+1 DisgustedinDERRY http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markdevenport/2010/06/waving_from_the_windows.html?page=28#comment4 4. ManOfPieThis standard only applies to the truth about Bloody Sunday.

What a waste of time.Love, PieMan Tue 15 Jun 2010 21:00:58 GMT+1 eyeswideopen1 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markdevenport/2010/06/waving_from_the_windows.html?page=14#comment2 Today goes down in history when the people of derry found justice for thier loved ones. Tony Doherty, whose father Paddy Doherty was shot dead near Rosville Flats on Bloody Sunday,said:"The victims have been vindicated". "The parachute regiment have been disgraced... their medals of honour have to be removed"."Widgery's great lie has been laid bare".The world now knows what the law abiding people of derry have known from that fateful day, thier loved ones were innocent. The families have achieved what they set out to achieve: the vindication of their loved ones. The finger of responsibility for the deaths on bloody sunday points soley to the Parachute regiment. The nationalist people salute the families for the leadership they have shown to others in Ireland and across the world in the fight for truth and justice. I feel humbled today to live on this island with such couragess people. You have shown a determination and spirit that will inspire the generations to come. God bless you all.Eyes wide open Tue 15 Jun 2010 19:43:17 GMT+1 DisgustedinDERRY http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markdevenport/2010/06/waving_from_the_windows.html?page=7#comment1 MarkIs this blog to be renamed the Widgery Diaries? Don't suppress the truth; set the truth free!!!
