If you've never heard Sinéad's famous cover of this Prince song, do not ignore – Editor.
The Catholic treatment of children and single mothers and cover-up of sexual abuse. Women's reproductive rights, the fight for a united Ireland, the British treatment of peasant farming victims, and the famine never compensated.
All I remember was a near-constant sense of intellectual fatigue. I just wanted to hear her sing.
Thirty years later, I feel ashamed that she exposed what everyone ignored as the views of a heretic are better understood now it’s too late.
Also – there's a poem from Guy Fletcher which you should read here. But he was Editor's Choice last week!:)
