Orde expected to speak today…

Hugh Orde is expected by all and sundry to point the finger at the IRA later today as the prime movers behind the Northern Bank heist. However don’t expect any early outcomes. Whatever Hugh Orde says now will be of little consequence until there is clear evidence one way or the other. But given the enormous scale of the heist, it’s unlikely to disappear from police radar for a very long time to come.

Update: Blair gets heavy too.

Update to the update: It is thought Mr Orde’s comments today could have short and long-term implications for the Good Friday Agreement..

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
