By July four republican hunger strikers had already died in Long Kesh Prison. A fifth, Joe McDonnell, was clinging to life. To outsiders, Margaret Thatcher appeared unbending; yet far from the prying eyes of the press, her government was making a substantial offer to the prisoners.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Community Reviews. Good article Alfie, Morrison is content to lay fault with everyone but himself and SF. Which makes his claims all the more difficult to believe as there is not even a hint that they could have made a mistake which is more likely as in any negotiations there are always mistakes.
Even if we believe Morrison that they wanted a guarantee that reads like a major mistake given that men were close to death, expediency should have been priority to those sitting comfortable on the outside. If the families had not intervened and ended the hunger strike how many more men would have died whilst SF were waiting on a guarantee. Richard had nothing to gain and could easily have remained silent knowing he would face the wrath of SF. He has done so and his creditability remains intact.
Morrison much like the rest of the leadership refuse to acknowledge that the infallible leaders were and are capable of making mistakes which is just not possible and given the timeline and narrative something went terribly wrong which on its own would suggest a great blunder was made. Great piece Alfie, Morrison is as guilty as sin. Probably not his decision but he certainly helped execute it.
