Sticking the Poot-s in

How refreshing it is to hear a unionist politician take the Loyalist paramilitaries to task over their violence. And a DUP member to boot!

Here is what the Lagan Valley MLA Edwin Poots had to say on the Loyalist violence:

"Loyalist paramilitaries claim to exist because of the republican threat against their community but the reality is that people in the loyalist community are living in fear not from their traditional enemy but from people within their own community.

"The ongoing feud within elements of loyalism is causing huge damage and demoralising the unionist community."

Well said Mr Poots. Hopefully we'll hear more unionist politicians coming out to denounce the disgraceful activities of loyalists and hopefully the British government will also finally declare the UVF's ceasefire obsolete.
