Remember, violence doesn't pay..

When, following the orchestrated violence in September, Secretary of State, Peter Hain, declared that he “acknowledge[d] the particular needs of loyalist communities” and appointed David Hanson to take the lead in addressing those needs I, somewhat sarcastically [Really?? – Ed], referred to him as the new Minister for Loyalist Alienation. Now, as the BBC report, David Hanson has announced that a Delivery Team to co-ordinate action in disadvantaged loyalist communities is being set up to implement the findings of a Taskforce established in 2004.. which is, allegedly, due to report soon..

Although I’m wondering how those findings will be different from the reports from the Poverty and Social Exclusion Project?
