Not a tasty loaf by any standards.

In the video, McElduff walked around a shop with the loaf on his head and said: “I’m in the Classic Service Station here, but I’m just wondering – where does McCullough’s keep the bread?”

A Sinn Féin MP has been forced to apologise after posting a video tweet showing him with a Kingsmill loaf on his head on the 42nd anniversary of the Kingsmill massacre in Northern Ireland.

Barry McElduff has deleted the tweet, posted on Friday, and apologised following condemnation from unionist politicians and victims’ campaigners.

Ten Protestant workers were lined up and shot dead by the IRA near the village of Kingsmill in South Armagh on 5 January 1976.

That will be Corbyn's fault.

Story is almost two months old (date quoted is Jan 15).

I'd have words with my broadband supplier if I were you.

Yes, it is, and high time for a further airing, as snow, wind and burst water mains have necessarily taken the main lead in recent news

I think, when you look at the story with a balanced viewpoint, taking everything into consideration, the bloke was a complete cunt.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

A thick one too considering that if he’d bought a pitta he’d be assured of a more stylish fit.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Good to see that IRA can still find something to laugh about in a good old fashioned massacre... I can see JC stroking his beard and smiling.

I've absolutely no doubt he celebrates the occasion annually. With like minded leftist loonies.

Whatever your political colour, it is a worry that the leader of the opposition has sympathies with these lunatics.

And of course a bloke wandering round with a loaf on his bonce is much more offensive than hundreds of blokes with flutes, flags and drums marching around the place.

Coming to a thread in two months time, how the twat with the loaf was suspended by his party and subsequently resigned.

Yesterday, McElduff was interviewed voluntarily by police at Omagh PSNI station and a report is being prepared for the Public Prosecution Service.

Good Lord Hugh - it's almost as if you're suggesting that annual ritual was there to provoke the Catholics?!

More than a worry than the government are bunging their terrorist front Unionists counterparts over a billion pounds to prop up their ramshackle government?

You do find funny things to worry about.

Usual Lefty response.
What has this horrible display of callous hatred got to do with the governments deal with the DUP, which as we all know is a horrible, corrupt and desperate attempt to stay in power. And I am certainly not happy with it. You seem to be saying that because the government did a dodgy deal, this heartless and insensitive jape is perfectly acceptable, as if there needs to be a trade off? Does one bad deed need always need to be offset against another? Or is it possible to discuss an act like this without silly schoolboy " oh but they did this first" type responses.

Very disappointing.

I was just thinking, is this the first time that the labour and Conservative parties have been split down sectarian lines? The Catholics don't usually get much support in Parliament.
