Three articles by Liam Clarke in today’s Sunday Times,although two are, in essence, saying the same thing- the DUP and Sinn Féin want a large amount of money for Northern Ireland.

Ulster asks for a ‘peace fund’

The DUP have asked for a One Billion Pound peace fund, which will be paid for through savings in security spending, and Sinn Féin are backing them. Will Gordon Brown play ball ?

The third deals with attitudes to Bloody Sunday/Saville and the Birmingham Pub bombings/Omagh.

Comment: Liam Clarke: IRA demands truth when all it offers are weasel words

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.
