Ahern threatens legal action against British…

FRESH from being named as European of the Year, Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has threatened legal action against the British Government for not releasing files on the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

The Taoiseach said he believes that MI5 and MI6 are refusing to hand over information to Tony Blair, which is better than making it up, I suppose, but a huge embarrassment nonetheless.

One suspects that the Prime Minister is in no real position to put his security services under the cosh at such a delicate time, but such political cowardice wouldn’t be unusual for Blair.
