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 by Adams to manouver the IRA into voluntarily decommissioning. It looks like he’s becoming more convinced.
