Very interesting reading from author Jonathan Tonge in the FT today. He offers an unusually upbeat perspective on the events of the last four months or so. He argues that the Bank robbery and the McCartney sister’s campaign may have brought about an opportunity, rather than a crisis to disengage the IRA finally and permanently from its armed struggle. Though he also believes the sisters may never have their wish for justice for their brother fulfilled. His book looks worth a read too!
