Why Adams initiative is a key moment…

Robert Ballagh explains why he thinks Gerry Adams’ much publicised appeal to the IRA is of major significance: “what Gerry Adams and the leadership of Sinn Féin are attempting to do is to consign to history the oldest continuing political strategy on this island, namely, the physical force tradition. Nothing more, nothing less!”

    Robert Ballagh is quite correct when he says:
    The “carnival of reaction” that currently passes for politics can be swept aside, to be replaced by a system based on equality and justice.
    That’s what’s possible – let’s go for it! — ergo:—-

    A combination of IRA retirement, a happy cheery marching season , and of course England winning the Ashes, should put even the dourest of Unionists in an exuberant mood, and ready to do business. The time is at hand.
