Lord Norman Tebbit, George Galloway, Yvette Cooper and Iain Duncan Smith today spoke to us about the death of former IRA commander turned peace maker Martin McGuinness.
There will be a great sadness in Ireland
– George Galloway
Conservative Peer Lord Norman Tebbit, whose wife was left seriously injured after the 1984 IRA bombing of the Grand Hotel in Brighton, said: “The world is now a sweeter and cleaner place.”
There can be no forgiveness without a confession of sins
– Lord Tebbit
I think we should recognise those tributes from all sides as part of that really difficult peace process that we cannot turn the clock back on
– MP Yvette Cooper

– MP Iain Duncan Smith
