    Isn't that because its usually the owner that is at fault rather than the dog? McGuinness was presumably operating on his own free will and escaped punishment because....

    The initial push for peace was the Anglo-Irish agreement signed by Maggie, but that is often overlooked.

    In my opinion she deserves great credit as this was not long after the IRA tried to kill her and managed to kill some valued friends and colleagues at Brighton.

    In 1993 John Major issued the Downing Street Declaration.

    1994 IRA and Unionist organisations announced ceasefires.

    Much of the work was done, so Blair gets the credit as he signed the Good Friday Agreement, but this was at least a 15 year process in which he was involved for the last 18 months.

    Now our spineless PM refuses to take part in live TV debates.

    Like the USA we also need change from the norms.

    It is also often overlooked,that she
    was a supporter of Jihadists and facist dictators. She also chided Major, for not finishing off Sadam Hussain (by invading Iraq).

    Is that something to do with the Rotherham paedophile case?

    I can not forgive her for the closing of and entire industry and additional jobs around it.

    As a fabricator/welder she removed meat from my table.
