David Ervine is hopeful UVF-LVF feud is coming to an end
Progressive Unionist leader David Ervine has suggested there is reason to hope the UVF's feud with the LVF is drawing to an end.

Speaking on BBC NI's Inside Politics, Mr Ervine said the UVF was no threat to the peace process.

He called for time for the organisation to follow the IRA's decision to end its campaign and decommission.

Mr Ervine also attacked calls for unionist unity and insisted it was time for diversity in unionism.

"I detest the concept of unionist unity," Mr Ervine said.

Too often it resulted in unionists "huddling around" the lowest common denominator, he added.
