■ I am delighted to see that RTÉ One (tonight, 9.35pm) will show a documentary on John Hume. In my opinion John, without anything in either hand, did more to bring about peace in Northern Ireland than many of the much lauded others with one thing in one hand and another thing in the other.
It has been a disgrace how John Hume has almost been airbrushed out of the history of providing peace to all inhabitants in Northern Ireland, while others not fit to stand alongside him are being placed on pedestals. Congratulations to this real gentleman and peacemaker.
