Also and for the avoidance of doubt. At the time, I would not have shed a tear had an ounce or two of HMG's lead found its way into the back of Martin McGuinness' cranium.
However, the peace dividend is more robust than many could have imagined - certainly me - yet Tebbitt will never accept that. "We 'ad 'em on the ropes and should have finished the job", is his schtick today with every outlet that will give him airtime.
Whether he is right or not is immaterial. We are where we are, and that is, by and large, a Good Place. Tebbitt's relentless undermining of the progress, whether he likes or means it or not, does nothing less than to call the settlement itself into question.
What is needed now, as May seems indifferent to fragmentation and the possibility of a hard Irish border, is not greater division. Yes, I know he and his wife have suffered immeasurably but it is high-time a tory put the country before himself. Just for once.
EDIT: Wee one for clarity.
