Fascinating interview with nationalist commentator Brian Feeney on the BBC Newsnight programme, cut with a lot of other interesting material. Feeney’s response to the question of Were IRA responsible for £26.5 m Northern Bank robbery in December 2004?. The polls verdict: 25% of Catholics disagree. 32% of Catholics agree. 44% don’t know.
Feeney’s verdict on the Newsnight poll: “This is a case of sectarian solidarity. They’re lying.” So the IRA did really do the bank job?
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.
