Double standards on terrorism

I am often struck by the stark contrast between the tough words of the government on dealing with the terrorist threat here in Britain and the appeasement shown towards paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland.

I have just noticed this was touched on by the excellent Ruth Dudley Edwards in last weeks's (Dublin-based) Sunday Independent.

I hope to tackle this theme in more detail in a later post.
