Further to Pete’s flagging of Kevin Toolis’ upcoming Channel 4 documentary this Thursday. Set your videos! Amongst the allegations (vigorously denied) is that Sinn Fein’s former VP and fund raiser Phil Flynn was involved in trying to set up a property deal in Bulgaria on behalf of the Republican Movement, which fell through in the wake of the Northern Bank raid.There are no charges yet other than for a minor firearms offence. And there has been little public evidence of significant lines of enquiry. However, Watergate took over three years from offence to the resignation of President Nixon. We wait to gauge whether Toolis’s programme is more Woodward/Bernstein or Michael Moore.
