Northern Ireland

Well this is a great day. The IRA have declared that they are disarming and pursuing peaceful change from now on. I think a commitment to peaceful change is a hugely important move. While it will take time to build trust between the communities in Northern Ireland after thirty years of terrorism, this is a vital first step to healing the divisions. I can’t bring myself to comment cynically on it.
