Blame game: there was no ‘comprehensive deal’

Tom Brady in the Irish Indo begs to differ. He quotes Gery Adams, “In the context of a comprehensive agreement, the IRA leadership will resolve these issues.” And then argues: “The truth is that there had not been any agreement on either the finer points of decommissioning, signing up to the declaration about not endangering anyone’s personal rights and safety or a timescale on Sinn Fein’s commitment to new policing arrangements.”
