That’s how Tony Blair described the statement from the IRA that both Governments are insisting on waiting for. That’s a one-off opportunity.. with a credibility threshold.. hmmm..
And if the opportunity is missed? Or the threshold ducked?
Will the Irish and British Governments continue with the current [and past?] strategy as described by Secretary of State for NI [and Wales – Ed] Peter Hain in an article in The Times –
But if you are going finally to crack the end of the process that culminated and then went beyond the Good Friday Agreement, these are the two parties[DUP and SF] that can most effectively deliver if they choose to do so.[added emphasis]
And if they choose not to? Is there a Plan B? Or will the Irish and British governments continue to replay the scene indefinitely?
