From the editorial:
The decision [to meet the Queen] reflects a confident, dynamic, forwardlooking Sinn Féin demonstrating our genuine desire to embrace our unionist neighbours. It reflects the equality and parity of esteem arrangements that are now in place and that development has been broadly welcomed right across Ireland.
Martin McGuinness is deputy First Minister for all the people in the North, unionists as well as nationalists and republicans. This is a commitment he takes very seriously.
Sinn Féin acknowledges the attachment that many unionists feel towards the Queen of England.
We see this engagement very much in the context of nation building, of overcoming the historic fracture
between ‘Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter’. We want to see the coming together of Orange and Green in harmony.
