Although he’s clearly enjoying himself, Danny Morrison questions the priorities of the Unionist rioters. In particular, he asks Unionist leaders to take an objective look at what they have agreed to (albeit contingent on promised IRA moves) even in the later version of the Belfast Agreement, the embryonic Comprehensive Agreement.
Are we living in a 32-county, democratic socialist republic under an IRA government? Has Protestantism been suppressed and the Orange Order banned? Has the centre of all commerce, banking and administration been shifted to Carrickmore?
Whatever became of Reg Empeys contribution to political stability, his cocky, provocative claim after the setting up of the executive under the Belfast Agreement, that the hunger strikers had died for nothing and republicans were administering British rule in the North?
Whatever became of Ian Paisleys claim to unionists just four months ago that, by voting for the Democratic Unionists, the Ulster Unionist sellout would end and be reversed and that under him there would be no more concessions to the IRA and no more rewards for IRA/Sinn Féin?
