Gosh - that's a surprise - I knew he was ill, but didn't realize that he was so seriously ill that death was imminent.

Yes, some sort of rare heart disease, which is why he gave up his position in Stormont and didn't contest the general election there., condition only discovered in December.

Yes it was a very rare heart disease. They found he didn't have one.

Yup. He died in comfort and peace, surrounded by his family.

That wasn't an option he gave to many of his victims (enemy combatants- such as women and children). Murdering bastard.

Why, when he was instrumental in many of the atrocities that perpetuated "the troubles" for so long.

As far as I'm concerned, I hope he rots in hell!
