Double standards on controversial prisoner releases

A local Asda worker, reinstated on appeal after allegedly making a sectarian remark, is found to be a convicted double-murderer. There is a furore from the victims' family.

I see no difference in this Asda worker, having served time in jail, and the scores of other convicted murderers walking the streets having served time. If the Good Friday Agreement or the law has released these people and some of them have found gainful employment, what is all the fuss about?

DUP difficulties

I REFER to your article 'Paisley's bid to rewrite DUP history doesn't bear scrutiny'. Is the problem that Paisley Jnr is still in the DUP?
