OVER at the Tallrite Blog, Tony Allwright is celebrating his letter of the week in Mark Steyn’s mailbox at Steyn Online. Both Allwright and Steyn are concerned about the sanitisation of the Provisional IRA’s violent campaign, something the British Government is now being accused of too, as it seeks to bury the past in a disrespectful and inept manner, hand-in-hand with its former enemies (this certainly didn’t convince). After all, Tony Blair’s arrogance is creating unlikely new allies… on more than one front. Northern Ireland is being told to “move along now, nothing to see here“, whether people from any section of the divide want justice or not.
