Hostages to fortune…

JUSTICE campaigner Raymond McCord has been told by the police that his life is under threat from the UVF (the second death threat from the UVF linked to McCord this month). McCord’s campaign has been strongly supported by Ulster Unionist MP Lady Sylvia Hermon, whose party, coincidentally, has the UVF’s political wing in its Assembly group. I’d love to know how she feels about this. The UUP was supposed to be in there stopping this kind of thing, yet neither it nor the PUP seem able to do so.
