Most wouldn't have agreed to On The Run deal

In the copies of the Belfast Agreement sent to every household in Northern Ireland, no mention was made of deals to give amnesty to those so-called on the runs.

It was repugnant enough to be asked to let the murderers, bombers etc out of prison before they had completed their sentence but, if I and most of the electorate had been told of this secret deal, there would have been an overwhelming vote against the Belfast Agreement.

My hope and prayers are for Peter Robinson to get this sorted out to his and all decent law abiding citizens' satisfaction as quickly as possible, and if not, pull out of this Mickey Mouse charade we call an Assembly and start again.

Be assured Mr Robinson, I and the vast majority of citizens in Northern Ireland will give you our wholehearted support.
