Banning the Dead from Employment

Quite an extraordinary news item on the Today programme about the fate of soldiers who deserted from the Irish army in order to fight for the Allies in the Second World War. If what this man is saying is true it's scandalous, but since no opposing voice was heard and the whole article was partly a plug for his book, I'm keeping my outrage in check. (Why didn't the BBC invite the Irish Government to respond? Normally they mention it when they try to get an alternative viewpoint, even if no one is available.)

I can't see much else about this on the web, other than the campaign web site here.

Anyone know more about it?
