Trimble: Hain must make things clear to SF

Trimble reported in today’s FT: “I don’t think that republicans have yet realised that they will have to disband the private army and government isn’t making it clear to them that they must. The fact that government is still not putting pressure on the republican movement is also a mistake and it is part of the mistake which has caused the problem which led to the outcome of last Thursday. Peter Hain will be a failure unless he changes his approach.”
