Empey: a welcome development…

A lot of callers into RTE in Dublin are cock a hoop at the General’s verdict and have expressed the opinion that Unionists must now take the initiative. “It represents progress and it also represents a massive U Turn on the part of the Republican movement”. He also believes that Loyalist paramilitaries must now decommission, not least because the General has committed to keeping the IRA inventory secret until they reciprocate. He reserves his opinion on the outcome of the next IMC reports. But he called it a welcome development.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
