UVF interview: no decommissioning please, we’re loyalists…

An interview carried today by the Belfast Telegraph reveals that the UVF are certainly under little pressure to decommission- and are expressing little hope of doing so anytime soon. Indeed, the interview points to the loyalist paramilitary outfit seeking to use its muscle to influence the Plan B option being floated by both governments here, a potentially ominous development as we approach the marching season- particularly given the level of UVF activity last Summer.
