A small dispute over numbers

The other interesting thing from Newsnight tonight was something of an aside. There was definately “a failure to communicate” (as Robert de Niro once said in The Untouchables) between Kirsty Wark and Martin McGuiness. Wark insisted on an explanation of the “credibilty” gap between the 3 people the IRA had implicated in its statement for the McCartney murder and the twelve that had been mentioned by the victim’s sisters. Try as she might, Martin would not oblige.
