UUP Assemblyman warns of loyalist violence

David Ervine, newly of the UUP Assembly team, has warned of a violent loyalist reaction if cross-border co-operation proceeds without a local Assembly being in place. In what is likely to be the beginning of a new phase of loyalist (or should we now say UUP?) sabre-rattling in the run-up to November 24, the Assembly man ironically remarked that the DUP reaching a power-sharing arrangement with Sinn Fein would avoid this doomsday scenario.
