It is not an April Fool: Peace foundation launched in memory of Martin McGuinness

Yes that Martin McGuinness, a man who murdered people. A man who was a senior commander in the IRA which killed folks ranging from a 6 month old baby to numerous grandmothers and grandfathers, nurses, teachers, folks with no connection to the RUC or British Army, an organisation that engaged in systematic ethnic cleansing of Ulster Protestants. That Martin McGuinness.

Apparently the new foundation will feature “an inclusive programme of education, sport, debate, art and culture” according to the friends and family of the late Butcher of Londonderry.

Whatever next? A foundation to help old folks launched in memory of the late Dr Harold Shipman?  Perhaps a foundation to assist vulnerable sex workers in memory of Mr Peter Sutcliffe of Yorkshire?  Has anyone considered the Herr Hitler foundation for Jewish studies?

Words fail me.
