Scott McMillan has been following happenings here in Northern Ireland closely since the Northern Bankn robbery. He’s written a number of pieces, for the Fistful of Euros blog (and Slate), that examines the validity of Ed Moloney’s theory that much of the outworking since the robbery has been a result of an arch plan of Adams to manouver the IRA into voluntary decommissioning. It looks like he’s becoming more convinced.
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.
