When I last looked at Matt Baggotts comments on armed republicanism it prompted Slugger regular Malcolm to have a few words (I appreciate anyone going to the trouble of adding colours in a response).
Despite this Ill risk revisiting the issue.
Matt Baggott stated:
“I think to some degree it’s different but it is the same as, for example dealing with street gangs in Brixton”
However the gang soundbite was raised much earlier by none less than Deputy McGuinness:
As my colleague Martina Anderson said in the House earlier, those people describe themselves as an army. It is not an army that we are dealing with but a gang
Of course I’m not suggesting they compare notes………
