Blair speech: opponents of peace

Blair goes on to outline the fierce opposition the Agreement has faced from a number of otherwise unlikely bedfellows:

“…the malignant whisperings of those opposed to the process, always pointing out its faults, never aiding its strengths; and the evil violence from dissidents, from so-called loyalists, designed to re-ignite sectarian hatred to convulse such progress as we have made. At every step, those working for peace, trying to make the Agreement function, were being undermined, often from within their own community.”
