1968 December 5, 2018

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Saw a link to this on Slugger, Ulster At the Crossroads – by Capt. Terence O’Neill who as Premier of Northern Ireland issued this on Monday December 9, 1968. It’s an odd document – prescient in its own way, and significant in that it admits to a range of issues where discrimination occurred, in local government and housing, that some within Unionism have later, and more recently, sought to downplay.

At this remove, weighed down by the intervening decades it seems clear that the dynamics in play were such that there was little or no space for the trajectories to shift.
