Tom McGurk is really on the money when he rubbishes the DUP suggestion that pictures would have proven that IRA weapons were gone for good.
"Since the IRA's final act of decommissioning, no interviewer has yet chosen to ask the DUP the obvious question: if you, as a member of the DUP, had been allowed to view the decommissioning process and even to bring a film crew with you, how would you have found proof that the IRA had decommissioned every weapon?
The answer, of course, is that there is no way of proving such a thing, either you accept that the republican movement is for real or you don't."
100% correct, pictures were about Paisley's attempt to make republicans don the old "Sackcloth and Ashes".
Sorry Ian but no Republican will ever do that!
