Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Parliament yesterday that his proposals to introduce an amnesty for paramilitary and state forces for historic Troubles-related murders would enable Northern Ireland to draw a line under the Troubles.

That must be one of the most insulting single comments ever delivered to those bereaved by the conflict. They have lived with the pain of loss and the despair of not knowing why their loved ones were killed and now the frustration of realising that they will never receive justice by seeing the killers prosecuted and jailed, even if only for two years.
