"So what we must ensure is that whatever happens, the next stage does not involve any return to violence, but a peaceful political process."Exactly. Some of us are capable of accepting that all the participants in the conflict were responsible for murders and that furthermore those murders were never endorsed by the ordinary people they claimed to represent., whether British, Unionist or Nationalist. Neither do we feel any need to have a childish conversation about "Who started it". The point is rather that the British and Irish govts, the terrorist factions and the people of N Ireland and Ireland all decided enough was bloody enough, and the GFA was passed. That agreement is now under strain because of Brexit, and the intransigence of the DUP and ERG. So what we must ensure is that whatever happens, the next stage does not involve any return to violence, but a peaceful political process.
Fair enough. - but let's call a spade a spade here and establish who precisely is trying to undermine the GFA.
The DUP is determined to undermine the GFA as are several senior members of the British Conservative party.
These groups need to be called out and directly challenged.
