Opening Pandora's box…

THE Government is set to announce an expanded role for a police unit to investigate the unsolved murders – including 200 RUC officers – of the Troubles. It would seem that a combination of re-opening criminal investigations, inquiries and the possibility of a ‘Victim’s Forum’, with a possible role for a museum at the Maze Prison site, is how we intend to bring ‘closure’ to the conflict. A Truth and Reconciliation Commission now appears less likely than ever.

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.
