SCANNAL - Out Out Out

TX: 5th October 2015 RTÉ One 19.30hrs

On the 19th of November 1984 at a press conference in 10 Downing Street held at the conclusion of the Anglo-Irish Summit, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher dismissed the three potential solutions to the conflict in Northern Ireland that were outlined in the New Ireland Forum Report.

In a typically blunt and forthright manner, she said: "A unified Ireland was one solution. That is out. A second solution was confederation of two states. That is out. A third solution was joint authority. That is out." This went down in the annals of infamy as the Out Out Out Summit. Worse still, Taoiseach Garrett FirzGerald didn't seem to know what she had said and seemed confused at his own press conference an hour later.
