IMC tipped to say no…

In tomorrow’s news today, The Sunday Times reports that the IMC is unlikely to grant the IRA a clean bill of health. The wrangle over Shaun Woodward‘s form of words last December continues. Hugh Orde speaking to the Young Unionists (come on guys where’s the eye witness report?) last Thursday, was not exactly slamming doors:

“There is no evidence to suggest that they (the IRA) are going back to an armed struggle. The people watching this will form their own view on how quickly any organisation, be it the UDA, the LVF, the UVF or the provisional IRA can move in that direction. You cannot be open for business one day and closed the next. The IMC report is so important. It will assess if the organisation is going in the right direction.”
