Only 24 per cent of the British public believes the IRA ceasefire will last longer than a year, according to a Gallup poll in today's Daily Telegraph. John Major is given less credit for the ceasefire than John Hume, the SDLP leader (27 per cent) followed by Mr Adams (22 per cent), Mr Reynolds (18 per cent), and Mr Major (12 per cent). Sixty-four per cent believe that the 'likeliest outcome of the present process' is that Northern Ireland remains part of the UK.
