    "A Sober and Reasonable Report"
  • Extended description

    Brian Faulkner hopes that people will take the time to read the report as a whole and that the media will take the trouble to present a picture of the report. Faulkner goes on to describe the report as a "sober and reasonable report" of what went on in Northern Ireland prior to the disturbances.

    According to Faulkner, the report shows clearly that the government line is justified. While the government recognises that there are valid grievances, there are others who have latched on to this for their own particular ends.
