Talk To The Hand

02793 2015-08-20 Kincora+
The work above by TLO (featured previously in Demonizing Paisley, Three Studies Of Ian Paisley, and Ian Jong-un, and also Wee Angel) comments on the long-running inquiry (or inquiries) into abuse at the Kincora boys home. Despite the conviction of several workers as a result of a 1980 RUC inquiry, the matter continues to resurface, with involvement alleged against British lords and notables, MI5, and loyalist paramilitaries. In the latest development, an appeal by campaigners  to have Kincora included in the UK-wide sexual abuse inquiry was rejected. (BBC-NI) In the poster above, a bloody red hand takes the place of the head above Mountbatten’s regimental uniform (see the photo below).

      Hello – it was on both sides of Hill Street – down near the Dirty Onion. It was also on the blue hoarding at the junction of Dubar Link/Victoria Street/Corporation Street – near the dole office. This artist normally pastes/posts in these two spots.
