… about Bloody Sunday.
About bloody time.
Successive Governments ARE responsible for the decisions they make and for the ways in which people conduct themselves on a Country’s behalf. Nor do I necessarily believe there should be any statute of limitations on how such actions are investigated when looking back on such things.
I don’t necessarily believe that broad-based financial compensation works either. It has some merits for some circumstances – but it’s fraught with a whole pile of other complications that – when terms for such compensation are finalised – often tend to ‘judge’ victims simply because that’s the nature of compensation law.
What I do believe, is that a Government should OWN it’s Country’s F$%^-ups! They should then be tabled and recorded as a adjunct in a Country’s history.
I’m blown away by Britain’s apology. Perhaps a Country can grow up after all…
I’m interested to hear what you might think: should a Country’s Government be held accountable for the actions of those acting on it’s behalf?
Belongum – Out!
