Getting beyond the crisis?

There has been pressure from the media in the last few days on the IRA to make the next move in the peace process. Tony Blair in Belfast today told ‘No camp’ loyalists that there was no other game but that laid out by the Belfast Agreement, but reserved his most direct message for the Republican movement:

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
