How many good things can one say about Robin Eames? The BBC has a stab.
Peace advocate Lord Eames, 69, led the Church during the worst years of the Troubles and was a key advocate for peace.
Just for emphasis’s sake, let’s cut to the meat of that sentence:
Peace advocate Lord Eames [....] was a key advocate for peace.
And there’s more:
He has also received a prestigious peace award, the Tipperary International Peace Award.
I’m sure there’s a way of saying that in terms less…gushing. Anyway, he’s been awarded Freedom of the City of Armagh, whatever the hell that is.
I can reveal that he is partial to the odd Kit-Kat, as he once stood in front of me in a queue at a filling station, and I saw him pick one up. I like Kit-Kats too.
