In all the futile talk about the Iraq War going on right now, with all the Conservatives retreating into intellectual hiding holes and Democrats wring their hands, it’s just nice to hear about a well-negotiated peace accord. Not relevant, really, but nice, nonetheless. Take a step back thirteen years:
After nearly two years’ negotiation the two leaders, John Major and Albert Reynolds, today stood united on the steps of 10 Downing Street.
The nine-point document gives the IRA and Loyalist paramilitaries the opportunity to take part in negotiations for peace if they first agree to observe a three-month ceasefire.
Reaction has been mixed even though this is the furthest the British Government has ever moved towards the possibility of a united Ireland.
