Newsnight names names

The BBC’s Newsnight programme has stated that Irish and British Government sources have told them that senior members of the Sinn Féin leadership, specifically Gerry Adams, Martin McGuinness and Martin Ferris along with four others(the video feed will be available shortly) are members of the IRA’s governing council.. and the Irish Justice Minister, Michael McDowell, referred to IRA “political glove-puppets” in his contribution. All of which brings into question who Adams was addressing in his speech. Martin McGuinness was interviewed immediately afterwards and denied the veracity of the report, emphasising that this was a report by the “British Broadcasting Corporation”[his emphasis] as he did so.. it was noticeable, though, that he was looking off-camera repeatedly towards the end of the questioning.. and he was probably thinking about walking out of the interview.
