Well the Channel 4 Dispatches programme on the Northern Bank raid is on tonight at 9p. Its author Kevin Toolis has a piece in The (London) Times today, laying out some of the findings of his nine month investigation into the background. First up is the Prime Minister Tony Blair, for what Toolis describes as the lie that there was ever any distinction between Sinn Fein and the IRA. The robbery was just another political punch in a long political campaign.
