Will this sorry chapter now be closed?

Will this sorry chapter now be closed?

..or will it open calls for prosecutions?

Like many people I thought that Cameron’s statement on the inquiry into the events of Bloody Sunday to be dignified and could of itself help in terms of whether anything happens next. The aim was to bring closure and it will be interesting in the next few hours to see if that has been achieved.

I was a sub-editor in the BBC Radio national newsroom on the day it happened in 1971 1972 and can still vividly remember the events unfolding as we were piecing together the reports.

Today’s statement sounds conclusive.
