For those of us who have followed the history of Northern Ireland (and in my case have close family links) last week’s publication of the Saville Report and the Prime Minister’s House of Commons statement was momentous.
Like many others, I have been horrified by the time and money spent by the Inquiry, but the clarity of his conclusions and the Prime Minister’s statesmanlike comments made it worth while. I hope the families affected and the people of Derry can take some comfort after 38 years of anguish and injustice. I was very proud of David Cameron’s response and the honesty of his comments. At last justice has been done.
