UDA is mirror image of the IRA


Re the pompous, arrogant statement from the UDA “We haven’t gone away you know” (October 6).

It is ludicrous for them to suggest they have the protection of their community at heart. They have bled the Protestant/loyalist community over a long period of time, to the detriment of their own community.

Let them say what they like, but they are a mirror image of die-hard republicans.

They rule by fear and intimidation, and their bully boys collect protection money to line their own pockets. Is that what they mean by having the community at heart?

You really could not make it up.
