“You cannot have partial stories..”

Yesterday Brian noted Michael White’s identification of the problem with the Consultative Group proposals to deal with the “toxic debt” of the past. It’s there also in my own post on the proposed Legacy Commission, and more explicitly in this previous post.

the groups he’s pointing to as being necessary participants [] include those responsible for the amnesiacs deal – and those who would have a vested interest in continuing to tip-toe round the past.

On Hearts and Minds last night the co-Chairmen of the group, Lord Eames and Denis Bradley, acknowledged there is an “an unevenness” in their proposals.

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.
