    Not really. Just saying "well done for doing the right thing in the end" is fine, but beatification is a little too much. WWTFHS
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    The only people who can end any major conflict are the major players in it, they are the only ones with the influence to do so. Whatever they did, McGuiness and Adams deserve credit for bringing an ending to the troubles.

    PS And the PM at the time, Blair, although I won't go as far as praising him.

    Yeah, not really possible given his sanctioning of the illegal war in the Middle East.

    Don't forget Major managed the first cease fire. & Mo Mowlam did most of the work for the second cease fire.

    Don't forget George Mitchell as negotiator

    And the other leaders that didn't have blood on their hands.

    B'liar just took the credit.

    Mo Mowlam and John Hume deserve more credit for it than they ever received. Bill Clinton also deserves a mention, not because he was heavily involved, but he was able to charm both sides into action.

    I had forgotten Clinton smooching in there, good point.

    Herne, Hulme , Trimble & Paisley it was sort of in their interests.

    and Mandleslime got caught with Jim the plumber & some dodgy passports so had to say his excuses & leave.

    Oh Dear, has Minestrone been drinking again? His missus really should offer him help, being a GP.
