The Sunday Times carries a story by Liam Clarke, IRA link to Belfast bullets cache that the 10,000 rounds of ammunition discovered in Twinbrook, claimed to be linked to PIRA, were manufactured after 1999 and that the DUP have been aware of this. I would read this a hopeful sign that, contrary to claims, the DUP are genuine in wanting progress to an inclusive assembly. Otherwise they would have used this intelligence, showing a massive importation of munitions after the Belfast Agreement, to collapse the negotiation process.
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.
