    A childish stunt, eh, Martin? It’s a much nicer way to spend the aftermath of Remembrance Sunday than scraping your relatives off the walls and footpaths of Enniskillen.

      In fairness it’s hardly a stunt. Do you really expect the Sinn Fein/IRA leader to stand for God Save the Queen? It’d be a stunt if he did, or a practical joke.

          In the BBC report, McG referred to the singing as ‘a childish stunt’ which has some merit, I suppose but I thought his protest a little rich in the context of the Six Counties’ recent history regarding cenotaphs, poppies etc.

    I’ve no time for Sinn Fein but I kind of felt sorry for McGuinness here. He has to put up with a lot of poo like this rather than Adams, who ran off to the south. If you watch the longer footage on the BBC website you’ll see some decent unionist politicians coming over and apologising to him for the stunt, including UUP leader Mike Nesbitt.

    He needs to grow a thicker skin. God Save The Queen is the British national anthem and until Ireland is reunited – excuse while I laugh until I sh1t meself – poor Wee Marty is going to have to suck it up every so often.

      Why should he ever sing God save the Queen? would you if you were there, would you bow to the queen and recognise her god given authority?

      I’m no fan of hardline nationalists but it can be very difficult to go against the crowd. especially the british cult of the monarchy. so fair to play to McGuiness

        That and the banquet he attended at Windsor Castle where he stood for the toast to the queen while the same anthem was played.
