Any future decommissioning carried out by the IRA should be transparent, Conservative leader Michael Howard has said. He said if his party got into office at the next election there would be no move towards joint authority with the Republic of Ireland "by stealth".

Big deal. OF COURSE there should be no move towards de facto joint authority. That would be against the democratic wishes of the majority of people in NI. OF COURSE the IRA should visibly decommission - or be crushed. That still won't make Sinn Fein fit for Government. An insurrectionist movement has no place in politics and the great sin of the Belfast Agreement and any DUP spawned variation upon it is that it tries to turn this vice into a virtue.
