Inequality still the unionist aim

4 February 1999

As David Trimble persists in obstructing any progress, it is becoming more obvious that inequality is a pillar of his Agreement-stalling strategy.

Tá sé sin ag teacht le gnéithe eile den sárchaitliceachas e.g. an seanleagan amach faisisteach go bhfuil an náisiún bunaithe ar theaghlaigh seachas ar shaoránaigh aonair. Free article

Editor's desk

4 February 1999

The staff of the Daily Mirror (or the ``Irish Mirror'' as they like it to be called) have such a wonderful sense of humour.

Their front page exclusive on Saturday's paper in certain parts of Dublin, began: ``Newspaper tycoon Craig McKenzie is a secret republican terrorist bent on wrecking the peace process.''
