Amnesty as good as confirmed. Disgusting, but not in any way surprising from these scumbuckets in Westminster

"It is believed it will involve a statute of limitations ending all prosecutions related to the Northern Ireland Troubles prior to 1998.

It would apply to former members of the security forces as well as ex-paramilitaries."

they need to bury the story that the state forces were murdering scumbags and not the peacekeepers they like to portray them as.

British establishment doing what it does best.

This is purely an exercise in saving face for the British Government.
The prosecution of soldier F was a precedent that they couldn't handle as it would open the door to so many more prosecutions across NI and the wider global conflicts the Brit forces were part of.
Everyone else is threw under the bus, in true Tory fashion, so they can look out for their own interests.

Fair play to Eastwood for naming F yesterday.....not sure what the legalities are for the likes of us reposting the the name online, but his name is out there now and I hope it's spread far and wide.

Theyíre inadvertently vindicating every killing by the IRA by doing this.

They don't care.

The spin that this is an amnesty for their soldiers will sit well with their gammon voting base.

The fact that it's an amnesty for everyone else who committed a crime here in the name of the troubles will also walk scot free will not be part of the headlines...

Didn't stop them plastering R**n G***s' name all over the place about a decade or so back when an MP brought up his name in the House of Commons concerning the effect of court "superinjunctions".  :o
