A previous image from the blog of 4/28/2020 titled Blood on his hands?, which was deemed to be too difficult to read, has now been updated: because it is one of the keys to understanding what happened when Labour won the October 15, 1964 UK General Election. Ronan O'Rahilly had been hired as a 'decoy duck'; a door man diverting attention away from people who were really behind Radio Caroline. But Ronan O'Rahilly - the irresponsible gadfly that he was; the man who almost got Simon Dee arrested for theft, and the man who did get George Drummond arrested for theft; plunged headlong into the bloodbath that was to become 'The Troubles' when he humiliated both Prime Minister Harold Wilson, and nearly caused a major international incident by embarrassing U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy; brother of the recently murdered President!
Yes, this is the REAL about Ronan O'Rahilly and not the fake image that his troll-like fans have been worshipping!
Now do you understand that sarcastic political speech that Johnnie Walker read at midnight on August 14, 1967, and which was written by Ronan O'Rahilly?
In case you need to be reminded, listen to it again by clicking HERE to hear Johnnie Walker read Ronan O'Rahilly's script at 12 midnight on August 14, 1967.

Robin Leach merely invented the Caroline Kennedy myth to get a story for the 'National Enquirer' - but he was 'scooped' by a U.S. daily which then syndicated their expose to newspapers across the USA. But Ronan O'Rahilly used that myth for sinister purposes! I wonder how many tears would have been shed for Ronan O'Rahilly in Northern Ireland, had it been understood what kind of a self-centered and uncaring human being Ronan O'Rahilly really was? It had nothing to do with the issue of "Ireland for the Irish" - the British should never have occupied the island. But as the news report above shows, by 1962 there may have been a quiet, peaceful and political solution on the horizon. Ronan O'Rahilly merely helped to drench the years to come in bloodshed, and he did this while humiliating Prime Minster Harold Wilson in public. In so doing he created such a life-long enemy of Radio Caroline that even Tony Benn did not understand it.
