What Would the Queen Say?!

I had to laugh today at reports that the UDA are demanding £70m(€101.1m) from the British government in return for an agreement to abandon all paramilitary and criminal activity.

The demand was apparently made during talks between the loyalist group and British government officials aimed at securing an end to all criminal activity.
A British official confirmed that the two sides were discussing a programme of measures in return for an end to UDA activity,but said no deal had yet been agreed.

Reports said the UDA were seeking the money over a five-year period "to train its members in skills which equip them for a new life", and to help loyalist communities.

Have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous?What "skills" would this money bring I wonder?Could it be the skill of gambling with the dosh in Vegas to their heart's content?
I only hope the British do not give in to this outrageous demand because if they did it would be a slap in the face to every family which has lost a loved one to this loyalist organisation.
