Cheerio to Divis, hello to Paisley HQ?

More good news on the normalisation front today as work continued on dismantling the imposing watchtower on top of Divis Tower. This move was welcomed by Sinn Féin President and MP for the area Gerry Adams who quipped that since Ian Paisley seemed so annoyed at the process to take ALL guns and armaments out of Irish politics, that perhaps the watchtower could be rebuilt on top of the DUP leader's Martyr's Memorial church!

There is however a serious point behind these remarks, in all the years of the troubles here, the British Army never felt fit to build a similar watchtower to spy on people living in areas where Unionist paramiltaries ran rife. I wonder why.
