Fascinating story which has been bubbling under for the last few days (I’ve been ill rather than willfully ignoring it). It seems the UVF (in favour of political settlement) in East Belfast have been allowed to take direct action over apparent sympathisers of the LVF (the organisation accused of Lisa Dorrian’s abduction and murder, and associated with political dissent from settlement) ie put them out of their homes in the Garnerville estate in East Belfast. The UVF says it will not stop “until it has crushed the rival faction”. Brian Hutton with a detailed rundown of the main issues.
