According to a short article in todays Metro, Peter Hain puts the reckoning of the 'Bloody Sunday' and other legal matters at £100million, paid mostly to 'English' firms. The barmem and hotelliers around Pimlico will testify to some of that spending.

Good news.

Pity they weren't fcuked for funds while they were still killing people on a regular basis.

Never mind, they'll get their money, from PIRA/USA

'Bouyt time too!!
The's been a few cases over here of late where the Assets Recovery Agency have siezed & sold property,cars & money from Loyalist Paramilitaries but I don't think they've done PIRA/SF yet.The's a girl,Lucy, in my work who lives off the Upper Falls (Finaghy Rd end,cant think of the name)
One of the locals boys she went to school with was Knee-capped a few weeks ago for Anti-Social behavior.
The was a case in the paper a few months ago of a lad,again from up Lucy's way who stood up to some yobbos.He was taken out & shot in th knees with a 9mil.Te damage was so severe,he lost his leg.SF apparently,condemmed the attack to the press but thats all they did.
I was once asked if SF know what the PIRA ect get up to.I answered yes,of course they do!
Same outfit,different tactics!

Still, you've got to admit, it's more effective than an ASBO :frustrated:

Shame about the funds wasted, they're all the proceeds of crime.

Is there ever a possibility that another armed struggle (likely through RIRA) can be waged if adequate funds were raised? IIRC the major players of RIRA who were the one with the bomb making expertise have been jailed. I believe even Michael McKevitt has asked RIRA to stand down. Is this simply history repeating itself where a lull occurs before another storm rages? Or has lasting peace finally toppled armed republicanism?

This will never be truly over. What has happened is that the controllers of the IRA have "grown fat" on the spoils of war. Their childrens legacy may not be such an easy ride. :( Terrorists do not "stand down" they just wait for the next opportunity.
PIRA were and still are probably the most experienced terror operators. How long is it going to be before they "sell" their skills in GB in order to raise a bit of cash. :(

God forbid (both sides are religious) but could it ever be conceivable we'd see a RIRA/32CSM and Islamist hybrid? Purely for the sake of convenience and a shared enemy?

Most experienced, but still cnuts. Although they were responsible for the fact that at age 9 I knew how to check a car for UVIEDs. The joys of BAOR in the 80s.

Hurrah, some one has had an attack of good sense. I would never hold my breath on an inquiry over Warren Point but how about Bloody Friday, oh sorry the IRA issued an apology thirty years later, how comforting for the families of the dead and injured. Why don't we, instead of paying sqillions of pounds to lawyers just issue a covers all retro apology. If it's ok for the terrs to excuse their actions with a press release then why should we be held to book for actions during a confused and volatile situation.

As I have been typing it has occurred to me that which is the greater crime. I'm sure that none of the Paras deployed on Bloody Sunday turned out with the expectation of opening up on civilians, while those who planted the bombs on bloody Friday particularly in the Oxford street bus station knew what the result of their actions would be. Why not limit inquiries to incidents with specific intent or would that mean that Jerry and Martin had more to answer for than we do.

The whole thing annoys me but it may be due to the mix of paint fumes, beer and middle aged angst while doing a bit of late night decorating.

Oh, that's a shame.

No hang on, do I mean "shame"? No, silly me. that is of course "fecking excellent, the murdering, terrorist-comforting feck pig, b'stards".

Driving up the falls you often see the odd 'Dicker' still hanging about,Will it ever be over,no.But on both side the terrorism has now given over to money making,be it from counterfiet DVD's,booze,porn (that's a big seller!) & drugs.Despite their protestations "Druggies will be shot" they're just covering their arrses!
