Jury still out, but the defence is looking shakey. Excellent line up on the Vincent Browne show last night (sound file). Albert Reynolds reckons McDowell’s statement after the meeting yesterday was unhelpful. But the initial discussion kicks off Gerry Adams’ response to a question of whether the IRA did the robbery, there can be no intelligence or evidence that he or Martin McGuinness had prior knowledge of the operation. But if you can find the time, stick with it until the end for good performances by Jim Cusack, Alex Maskey and Jeffrey Donaldson.
