IRA: the day that’s in it…

Interesting slot on the prospective days events on Morning Ireland this morning. Martin McGuinness talking to Carol Coleman on landing in the US looked forward to the release of Sean Kelly, and managed to suggest that he’d been arrested at the behest of the DUP. However, increasingly it looks more like a good old fashioned Irish hostage taking, to ensure the IRA doesn’t come up with yet another post dated cheque. Charlie Bird notes the timing of McGuinness’ midday (5pm here) press conference, and suggests that we should have had time to study a lengthy IRA statement by that stage.
