I think you'll find that is a prime example of shoddy journalism.
Even the blindest of the blind can see that, with the Royal Irish disbanded, The DUP being sweet-talked/threatened to join in the peace process with the formerly misguided and the word of Tony and Peter that the war is over, silly allegations like these are not helping to ensure that Northern Ireland continues to exist in a Shangri-La-like state of heavenly Nirvana.
Of course there is still a few assholes up to no good. There will always be a few even if there is substantial political stability. By and large however the police on both sides of the border can deal with them. To use these guys as an excuse to hold on to the Royal Irish home service Battalions is a lame one.
Some of us get to be forcibly planted here, after our military army service. It's a continuation of the Roman strategy of civilisation of the barbarians. Have pity.
Still, Big Ian sent everyone a wee paper the other day in our Bel Tel, telling us why he's going to stick it to Cuddly Martin if the foul bstard doesn't behave. I'm afraid it's true - the DUP is the sole credible voice of reason left.
Doesn't help much in the matter of the "Real" or "Continuity" bands of cretinous pillocks, though. Someone's going to have to talk to them seriously.
As Gerry said
'They haven't gone away.'
Splinter groups are a very useful tool, do the required business but not associated to the Main Body.
Hope it stays at Jaw Jaw, too much innocnet blood spilt.
