Sinn Fein apologise for murdering Louis Mountbatten

Recommended Posts

Seeking to salve an old wound at a time of sorrow for Britain’s royal family, the political leader of the Irish republican movement apologized on Sunday for the 1979 assassination of Louis Mountbatten, an uncle of Prince Philip.

Mary Lou McDonald, the leader of Sinn Fein, which was once the political wing of the underground Irish Republican Army, told a London radio station, “Of course, I am sorry that happened; of course, that is heartbreaking.”

NY Times

Mountbatten, then aged 79, was pulled alive from the water by nearby fishermen, but died from his injuries before being brought to shore.

Also killed in the blast were two teenage boys and an 83-year-old woman, all relatives of Mountbatten's who were out fishing with him.

That isn't an apology! Announcing this just after the death of Prince Philip is just thumbing their noses at the royal family.

That is not an apology.

Any more than 'mistakes were made' is an admission of guilt.

Well thats wrong, the autopsy said he drowned from going face down into the water unconscious.
