Do Sinn Fein (you will change the name soon, won't you?) really believe that men died on Hunger-Strike for this defeat?

That my own aunt lived without hands or eyes with quiet dignity and without complaint for forty years to hear that the tri-colour is lodged in the corner of some office in Stormont. Stormont! The symbol of Republican defeat in 1921? I defy anyone to tell me they did because I will call them liars and hypocrites.
