No going back

Government and police sources say dissident Republicans are poised to carry out a gun or bomb attack in an effort to derail talks aimed at restoring devolved government in Northern Ireland.
 
Who are they aiming to dissuade? Maybe, in some kind of sick double-bluff, they think they're going to dissuade Unionists. More likely, though, the idea is to intimidate those of their own kind who have entered the world of democracy under the lead given by Sinn Féin.
 
I hope Republicans, as well as Unionists, will see these people for what they are. Antisocial has-been failures.

Ditto! Having said that, if the dissidents provide enough excuse for the DUP to scupper devolution, they've won. The Republic will jointly rule with England until Nationalists outnumber Unionists and one election later, problem solved.

Bill.

Glad to see that you recognise that, by this time Scotland will have given England her independance, and with it the burden of financially propping up a failed entity.
