TOM Luby has some interesting speculation about why a full public inquiry into the murder of Pat Finucane is not on the cards – it’s not really in the interests of either Sinn Fein or the British Government. It’s another good reason to be honest and see the utter futility of a Truth Commission, since it’s pretty clear no-one has any intention of going anywhere near the truth. They have mixed success anywhere, and who could have confidence in it? Would it just be better to forget?
