What did Lord Tebbit say about a corner of hell being saved for Martin McGuinness?

Lord Tebbit, who was injured with his wife in the IRA bombing of the Grand Hotel in Brighton in 1984, said:

"The world is a sweeter place today. He was a coward who never atoned for his crimes. There can be no forgiveness without a confession of sins... He claimed to be a Roman Catholic. I hope that his beliefs turn out to be true and he'll be parked in a particularly hot and unpleasant corner of hell for the rest of eternity... He was not only a multi-murderer, he was a coward. He knew that the IRA were defeated because British intelligence had penetrated right the way up to the Army Council and that the end was coming.... He then sought to save his own skin and he knew that it was likely he would be charged before long with several murders which he had personally committed and he decided that the only thing to do was to opt for peace."
