Dear Editor,
Just when you thought the Tory government could not get worse on Northern Ireland, along comes Secretary of State Karen Bradley to declare the British security forces could not, in effect, commit crimes in the north because they were only following orders. However, as horrible and as dumb that is, maybe she did a favor by publicly letting the cat out of the bag—by saying publicly what the Tory government has always believed: that it has a divine right to do whatever it wishes on the island of Ireland. That’s what Lloyd George thought; what Churchill thought; and what Maggie Thatcher thought.
