If Truth Be Told



The UVF-linked PUP has said that there must be “safeguards” against “retribution” when dealing with the legacy of the Troubles. The party yesterday published a four-page document, ‘Transforming the legacy 2’, as Dr [Richard] Haass [US diplomat chairing all-party talks] began his work.

The postmodern document said that there could be no absolute truth about the Troubles because “truth is changeable”, arguing that there should therefore be no attempt to find “the truth” of what happened in the Troubles. It added: “There can be no attempt to use a reconciliation process to enshrine narratives about who inflicted the most and who suffered the most.”
