Gerry Adams continues his reinvention as an internationally respected Irish statesman, according to the Portadown News. He tells the kidnappers of Liverpool man Ken Bigley, "Keeping this man in a cage and threatening to cut his head off is no way to advance your cause."

"Instead", he says, "Mr Bigley should be taken to a remote barn, strung up by the arms, tortured and savagely beaten for several weeks, interrogated at gunpoint, sentenced to death by Danny Morrison, shot once through the back of the head, dumped in a bog somewhere and never mentioned again".
