Sir: I congratulate Gerry Adams and David Trimble on their principled stand over the last few weeks and their refusal to give in to the dark forces of pragmatism.

Gerry Adams has bravely stuck to his guns in refusing to compromise on the letter of the Good Friday Agreement with respect to decomissioning. David Trimble has refused to make his leap in the dark and get into bed with a terrorist organisation.

I can only wish that the organisation distributing Nobel peace prizes had made the same principled stand as these two honourable men instead of encouraging dangerous and fanciful notions of a democratic and trouble- free future.
