It seems someone’s not happy with the portrayal of yesterday’s IRA statement as a “tantrum” – RTE are reporting that a second 2-line IRA statement has been issued warning “Do not underestimate the seriousness of the current situation”. So, just to clarify then – Was it a threat or not?
According to the BBC report this new statement, clarifying yesterday’s statement, reads:
The two governments are trying to play down the importance of our statement because they are making a mess of the peace process.
Do not underestimate the seriousness of the situation.
Hmmm… perhaps a little more time should have been spent drafting that original statement?… just a thought.
