The fearless tenacity with which he pursued innocent victims’ issues will be part of his legacy. The vile hatred he stirred from IRA types bears testimony to his success.
In the face of many trials and setbacks William was always able to come back.
Now his struggle is over it behoves politicians to honour his memory by ensuring that the past is not rewritten. We must all ensure that innocent victims are not forgotten.
