The current bribery to desist gangsterism is part of an ongoing process

I am resoundingly not a fan of Lindy McDowell’s demotic tirades in the Belfast Telegraph. However it is hard to find flaw in her analysis of the current impasse in presenting £1.2 million to a group of criminal thugs in order to persuade them to disarm.

McDowell is correct in dating capitulation to gansterism early in the peace process. She is also correct in asserting that Margaret Ritchie is making the best of a bad job by moving to withdraw the funding.
