Bit by bit, despite the occassional setbacks, it seems things get better over the years in NI.
Here's hoping the hopeful statement is matched by a positive and tangible response from the IRA soon.
With a little luck (once the general election is out of the way and Labour returned) there might well be some good progress in NI.
(in the unlikely event of a tory win I fear we would be quickly back to the tired old 'security solutions' - which aren't any actual real solution
at all, as the last 30yrs showed only too well - and the chance of a generation to finally and equitably sort the horrible mess that is NI would be
blown, probably for decades. To all our - great - cost.
Sorry to be so 'party political' about it but that's how I see the tories on this, they don't seem to have a clue as to how to move the process on
they just keep parroting the old 'ideas'.)
