Brown to row back from ruling out amnesty..?

THE Prime Minister appeared to categorically rule out any amnesty for terrorists or attempt to get the Troubles classified as a ‘war’ after questioning in the Commons from the DUP’s Nigel Dodds. I say ‘appeared to’, because it seems there’s a bit of a panic going on in Downing Street over Brown’s rather definitive statement, and ‘clarification’ (ie, the PM will back-track) is expected later. If it appears, the clarification will tell unionists everything they need to know – that they’re probably going to have to watch another Government U-turn at some point in the near future.
