What chance decommissioning?

The Belfast Telegraph’s editorial re-iterates David Trimble’s message to the IRA yesterday by suggesting that the IRA’s betrays a lack of understanding of what is needed to get the process started again.

However there are some optimistic signs after Martin McGuinness praised Tony Blair for listening careful to Sinn Fein’s input at the Downing Street talks yesterday, with Guardian again hinting at the dramatic scenario they thought might take place before Christmas is not completely dead, yet.

However this editorial from the Andersonstown News is rather less than upbeat on the subject.
