    Thank you for your reply.

    I want to be very clear about anonymous posts here. I do not make a secret of my identity, and this blog is my home on the internet. If people turn up and yell through the windows of my front room, which is effectively what you are doing here by commenting anonymously, I do not necessarily extend them the same courtesy that I would to someone who identifies themselves. If you want a real dialogue with me, my email address is not difficult to find.

    I do recommend you actually read the Saville report. I think you will find that a lot of your criticisms are addressed in the text, particularly the difficulty of finding the truth after thirty years. If you are already convinced it is pre-cooked, it may not change your mind, of course, but there is no harm in trying.

    Your main point, which you could have made perhaps more effectively without sidetracking into making accusations about me, is that the Saville enquiry was set up by Blair as part of the price of Nationalist buy-in to the peace process, and that this therefore discredits its results. I agree with the first part of that observation but not the second. However, if you want a reasoned discussion (and I’m not sure that you do) you will have to conduct it differently.

    For the record, I did not say anything at all about your own political ‘bias’ in my previous reply, and certainly did not “infer much” (though I think you may have meant “imply” rather than “infer”). We all have to take responsibility for our own words, but that also means starting with what is actually written rather than what you imagine may have been in the mind of the writer.
