UDA ceasefire to be recognised…

THE Secretary of State – who obviously didn’t read the recent IMC report – is expected to announce that he is recognising the UDA ceasefire later today. A good week then for UDA leader Jackie McDonald, after he was spotted in St Patrick’s hall watching Mary McAleese’s Presidential inauguration yesterday.

UPDATE: Analysis here from the BBC’s Barney Rowan.

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.
