Susan McKay wrote a book on northern protestantism a few years back. In it, David Ervine spoke about the appalling standard of education in loyalist areas, particularly Belfast. Apparently the position to which most of the kids aspired was "ex-political prisoner"! This was before the splits and assassinations that led to the death of the likes of John "Grug" Gregg and the exile of Johnny Adair, so maybe these guys are not as glorified any more.
