US Congress warns Cameron

#1
David Cameron has been given a stark warning from Washington that dissident terrorists will be "emboldened" to intensify their attacks in Northern Ireland and millions of dollars of US investment will be threatened if he fails to persuade the Tories' Ulster Unionist partners to endorse the final stage of the peace process.

In a sign of deep unease in Washington at the Tories' electoral pact with the UUP, a bipartisan group of US Congress members have demanded Cameron must "aggressively" encourage his partners to endorse the deal in a vote in the Northern Ireland assembly on Tuesday.

"At this defining moment in the peace process, it is crucial that all the political parties speak with one voice about their shared future," the members of Congress wrote in a private letter to Cameron.

Are these the millions of dollars that were spent on supporting the IRA or is there another "investment" that they are referring to?

"Aggressively", eh. They clearly don’t understand Ulstermen then. Not recommended.

So if yer man Cameron tells them to wind their red necks in, they will stop him from being elected? Just a thought.

This is a storm in a tea cup, the Guardian is just trying to stir up trouble look a little deeper and you will see that there are only four congressmen named as signing any document and they are all in the so called Irish American districts (The ones where they call themselves Irish, drink green beer on St Patricks Day and eat weird food never seen on the Eastern side of the Atlantic). I smell a bite by our Left wing, wolly jumper wearing friends at the Guardian
