At the risk of being accused of duplicating the content of not one, but two previous posts, there is an additional point worth highlighting. The PUP’s, and Ulster Unionist Assembly Group member, David Ervine’s interpretation of the UVF publication, as noted by the BBC – “They can speak for themselves but I would like to interpret it that perhaps they are recognising that the war is over” – would, of course, be in no way connected to the statement by the deputy leader of the UUP, Danny Kennedy, that the UUP’s link with the PUP MLA was “under review” Given the threat noted by Gonzo [ btw Sylvia Hermon’s probably deeply distressed – Ed], it may be time to decide if those with whom you are engaged with are being disingenuous… Reg?
Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
