Small steps not enough.
While I cautiously welcome the news that there is to be a reduction in the amount of British troops in the north, I can't help but feel that this is a mere drop in the ocean compared to what is required. While all the focus seems to be on Republican arms, it must be remembered that there is still much anger in the Nationalist/ Republican community about the continuing high level of invasive and unwanted Army spyposts and barracks. The world and his dog knows that these troops are still here only as a sop to Unionism. Demilitarisation MUST be addressed if we are to return to anything like a normal society here
