Government recognition of UVF ceasefire is a “crackpot situation”.

There’s a lot of coverage of yesterday’s murder in Belfast today, from the Irish Examiner to The Guardian.. and all points between.. the fourth killing by the UVF in the past 6 weeks.. but while Lord Rooker, Secretary of State the only NIO minister available, repeated the now familiar statement, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise given the IMC’s last report – and with “sources close to the UVF”, according to this Irish Independent report, making self-serving statements – “They [the LVF] have to disappear, they have abused this society for too long” – the demand for the ending of the charade of government recognition of that ceasefire should get louder.. whether government is listening is a different matter.
