I’ve heard of some strange hi-jacking of URL’s but this one beats them all so far. It’s a new(-ish) Loyalist discussion site, which goes under the URL of dailyireland.org.uk. The offical title of the site is The Way Forward. It would seem derived from a joint document from the British and Irish governments in July 1999 in an early attempt to unlock the impasse between Unionists and Sinn Fein over the IRA’s arms. Via Shitty First Draft!
