March was a bad month for…

…WOULD-be republican bomber Paul Donnelly. The day after the Police Ombudsman cleared the police of shooting him in his mum’s car as he tried to bomb the old car tax office in Belfast, he was arrested in another car after police popped out of the back of a cash transit van during an armed robbery. Ironically, if he’d served his original sentence in full, he wouldn’t have been charged with last month’s robbery.Hat-tip to Pete for sparking such thoughts here.
