Instead of languishing in prison - or an unmarked grave - IRA Brighton bomber Patrick Magee has been invited to participate in the official commemoration marking the 25th anniversary the bombing.
Magee, now lives in Belfast and has publicly regretted the loss of life caused by the bomb but has defended his reasons for planting it.
He has yet to decide whether or not to travel to Brighton.
I will quote from the comments.
Yeah, great! On Sept 11, 2026 let's invite Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Osama Bin Laden to the 25th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We'll invite the survivors and relatives of the 3000 murdered victims and have a grand ole time. What in God's name is happening to our civilization?
