Please tell me someone is having a laugh here.......Sands was the world's most incompetent terrorist, caught on his first job. Will this be included in the "film"?
The first, last & only time I saw that cnut was when I witnessed what was left of his body lying on a mortuary slab in Forster Green Hospital, Belfast. I was convinced then that the worst possible thing we could have done would have been to cave in to the demands of the hunger strikers & their puppet masters PSF, & remain convinced of that now.
To make capital & publicity out of a film such as this is the lowest of the low, & for the filmmaker to say that it "portrays Sands in a sympathetic light" is just cant & hypocrisy. How can you portray someone in a sympathetic light whose greatest act of defiance was to smear turds on the walls of his cell? What utter garbage. I hope the filmmaker feels good about himself for churning out this propaganda epic; will he be giving a portion of his fee to Gerry & Martin?
I feel better now. Yours, Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells.
Thing is, if the skinny cnut was around today, he would get a grant to subsidise his anorexic tendencies and another grant from the lottery for his "natural artwork".
Why do the "arty" types think these people were fighting for freedom and human rights? did they skip the bit about bombings and executions of civilians, let alone the murder of british soldiers and their families?
So, sorry, we havent forgotten anything, we just know the history and the reality.
Quite suprised the americans didnt make this film, after all, they change the facts to suit a good story, (Re: any WWII film, the enigma machine etc etc)
