Closure on the past – redux

Today’s announcement by the PPS – PPS press notice [pdf file] and statement by the DPP [pdf file] – also noted here, and the reports that the Secretary of State for Wales, etc, Peter Hain [Goodbye Peter – Ed] has denied there had been any political interference in the decision reminded me of a previous statement of the government’s position by the same Secretary of State – “Closure on the past cannot be one-sided”. Not that I’m suggesting that there is more than one indicator, from more than one source, of an amnesiacs’ deal being put in place while the rest of us will, eventually, be subjected to a period of public therapy.. Not that that’s what I’m suggesting at all..
