Feeney attacks CRC over preconditions for a ‘shared future’

Brian Feeney has slammed Community Relations Council chief, Duncan Morrow, following an article by the latter (which was the subject of a thread here.) While Feeney clearly has little time for the CRC, for reasons he articulates, he takes particular issue with a “revealing” paragraph by Morrow which also raised some eyebrows on the initial thread here on Slugger a week ago:
“For nationalists, a shared future means committing to full engagement in a state with which they have never felt comfortable and some have dedicated their lives to replacing. For unionists, the hard part of sharing will be making political arrangements with previously violent enemies who have deeply traumatised friends and relations and coming to terms with the Irish dimension to the six counties.”
