Are Catholics being ‘economic with the truth’?

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?
