Those nice people in the IRA namely one "Slab" Murphy are attempting to redress the balance of murdering children in Warrington and bombing Manchester by laundering the proceeds from bank robbery and cross border profiteering, in Manchester. This so that Slab and the rest of the idealist "freedom fighters" can have a nice comfortable retirement in Eire.

Oh dear Pied Piper you seem annoyed, sorry Tom who I happen to know has not been in court yet on a charge. As to the Northern Bank raid none of our boys have been in court regarding that case either. And thanks our volunteers are doing just fine in their retirement. As to kids being murdered, did you ever attend any of the funerals of those that you happen to mention ? I guess not you are just a little talker. I have been to many funerals of children murdered by your British soldiers here in Belfast.Go away son and try another thread.

Pied Piper and Clogger,
If the bombs had not gone off in mainland England would you have had any interest in what was happening on the streets of Ireland ?. You all just don't get it. we were left unnoticed, abandoned and subjected to bigotry, insults, and discrimination both in jobs and housing by an anti-catholic and anti-irish political system for nearly half a century. This all happened under the noses of OUR GOVERNMENT Nobody cared and nobody gave a damn, as long as the killings were in Ireland it was passed over just like the sports section in a local paper. The only way to get the attention of the Westminister government was to take it to their own doorstep. It is heartbreaking that children had to die, it's sad that anyone had o die, nobody in the world wants these things to happen, especially to the young, but children were dying in Ireland and we did not hear too many complaints from across the pond. Pay heed to what Divis said, every word is true.
By the way, what happened about that big bank robbery anyway - NOTHING. IT just vanished off the front pages as fast as it appeared. Nobody charged, no real proof of who was responsible, just insinuations. Of course the front pages were required to report the McCartney killing, yet the Jim Gray murder was reported on page 56 of my morning paper under items from around the world.
There was a parallel thread about some mudcatters being anti-irish, now where would one get such an idea ?.

Wrong, JimmyC. I started that thread. I know what it was about. I started it because of a comment by one of the 'Tirs' that the average Brit was anti-Irish. I think it was proven without reasonable doubt that there is no such thing as the 'average Brit' and that in general the people of England are not anti-Irish. Incidentaly, I find it odd that we have seen neither of the Tirs recently but Divis Sweeney seems to have be giving an identical message. Not saying there is anything sinister. Just odd;-)

What I have also noticed is that in any thread mentioning the Irish, and probably some that don't, a lot of Irish and Irish/American mudcatters take the opportunity to slag off ther English. If we look at some of the recent threads I think you will find that anti-English comments are in far greater abundance than anti-Irish ones.

But, as I said on the anti-English thread, us English are a bit thicker skinned (and yes, before you say it, a bit thicker!) than some others and I, for one, couldn't care lass about petty vindictiveness on an internet discussion forum. I have a more interesting life outside the mudcat where people of all races sing folk music, get on with each other and don't get off on scoring political points:-)

Cheers

Already this story has been taken off the BBC and ITV screens, the head of the Assests Recovery Agency is former RUC Assistant Chief Constable Alan McQuillian , it is not the first time republicans have clashed with McQuillian, in 2002 he blamed the IRA for operating a spy ring at Stormont which resulted in the Unionists withdrawing from the power sharing agreement.

He also linked the Provos to the break-in at Castlereagh Police complex in east Belfast also in 2002, prior to which he claimed Republicans had been planning a major riot, none of the charges were ever proven or anyone arrestet.

It has been extremely difficult to gather evidence in criminal cases in the north of Ireland because para-militaries, criminals and governemnts have intimidatedd potential witnesses so effectively.

It is not surprising that few cases actually get to court

I notice that 'Div ' Sweeney always uses the collective ' we ' or inclusive ' our ' is he really one of them ? or just another idle boaster ?

Planting bombs in waste bins to kill children isn't a very brave or noble noble thing, or anything to brag about.

And why does he never contribute to music threads ?

Jimmy C I do not deny that you had to get yourselves noticed to get the rights that you so obviously deserve.
It's the methods that many Catholics have been persuaded by those wishing to take criminal advantage of the troubles have told them were necessary. I don't agree that all the killing was necessary, as killing is always unjustifiable, and I don't agree that you lacked a large amount of sympathy on mainland Britain.
Why did they never take their campaign of violence and intimidation down south, so that the Irish government might be prevailed upon to intercede on their behalf, they didn't seem to say much to support their fellow Catholics in the north that I heard of, and if they did they didn't say it loud enough.
I'm glad a new step has been made on the path to a united Ireland, and agree that it is long overdue.
As for investing in Manchester it's just as well someone has!
Giok

Let's get this straight - killing Irish people and discriminating against Catholics in N. Ireland in the 60s was wrong; the British government of the time was wrong to ignore it; killing innocent people in N. Ireland and mainland Britain was wrong - adding wrongs together never makes a right.

I have always believed that the Manchester bomb of 1996 was some sort of conspiracy. The section of the city that was blown up was exactly that part that needed to be re-developed in order that the city centre could compete with the Trafford Centre. Anything connected with planning and development, in this country, is so murky and corrupt that anything is possible.

So sorry no interest at all in Blues, folk, jazz, country, gospel of diddle dee music. So am I barred ? It would appear its fine to open a thread about the PIRA such as robberies, weapons, this cock and bull story about Manchester, but not for anyone to answer them if they don't share the view of the thread ?

Not all mudcatters disagree with you. In fact, I'm glad to hear you say what you do because although I am empathetic, I don't have the background to justify my feelings on the subject. I'm one of the folks that are sick and tired of England and the U.S. invading, killing and maiming citizens of other nations and then crying foul when it happens on their own soil.

Seems to me that powerful nations think they are justified to do whatever they want and when the defenseless fight back with what little they have, they call it terrorism.

Slab was his fathers nickname before him.Keith you asked does Britain own any land in Ireland ? Who is it than I am paying land rent to for the house I own ? And there are many large estates in the Irish Republic still in the hands of English double barrelled names. The British control and own the lands within the six counties of Ulster, I was sure you would have known that.

Who is it than I am paying land rent to for the house I own ? Divis, you're paying to the corrupt rich of England who made their money doing dastardly deeds years ago. You are NOT paying rent to the British. In much the same way as some people in Manchester are now paying rent to the corrupt rich of Ireland who made their money doing dastardly deeds more recently. They are NOT paying rent to the Irish. There are corrupt rich on both sides of the Irish Sea and in many other places besides. Feel free to call the landowners of both sides but don't assume that all of us on this side of the puddle belong to that class. Corruption knows no political, religious or territorial boundries.

BTW - If you are still covered by English land law you can buy your leasehold for around 5 years ground rent. The landlord is obliged to sell it you. We did it with a property we owned some years ago. The same bastards that own your land owned most of Lancashire as well.

Why was it his Fathers nickname then?

Cheers

Neither was the land in Lancashire, Divis. I can assure you that the aristocracy don't have a personal vendetta against you. They will rob anyone they can;-) I don't think anyone is suggesting that Mr Murphy is guilty of any crime in Manchester either. As was pointed out earlier the Assets recovery agency do not bring criminal charges. It would be nice if they investigated the people that own far more property than Mr Murhphy on both sides of the sea but we are both realistic enough to know that will never happen.

Imagine for one minute that the Assets recovery agency and the equivalent in Eire recovered all the property that the landowners could not explain away? I think it may cut our tax bills a little if our governments re-claimed the lot:-)

Until that time we will have to make do with whatever petty recoveries they can make. But come the revolution brother, come the revolution...

Not all Irish Republicans are Catholic, and not all Unionists are Protestant. So, if we are discussing Irish Republicans or Unionists, let's use those terms instead of Catholic or Protestant. Thanks! (Epona)

Good remark. One other example is Ronnie Bunting, the son of a associate of Paisley becoming INLA member.

But we may be excused for just a few months ago the former group of Republican posters (Curator et al.) has told us that not a single Catholic has voted for Paisley. Pope John Paul Belfast Wall Murals.

It's good to see now that a Republican poster agrees implicitely that this was nonsense.

When I begin to read an artical in a newspaper the first thing I do is to see who the reporter is.When I saw the name Henry McDonald, that was enough. A well known anti Republican. Second I tend to look at how many times the reporter uses the words, fact, proven in court and admitted. If you read this artical Wolfgang you will see the words ALLEGED and THOUGHT TO BE. It tends to lend towards fantasy on the reporters part.And as to the information on Tom, it was amassed from the words of an informer, and a discredited one at that. I somehow doubt Wolfgang you would be pleased to read an article about yourself or a friend in a paper in which the reporter uses these two words against the words fact or proven.

(For those who do not remember, a warning was given but the warning ommitted the fact that the bomb was much bigger than usual. The result was that people were not evacuated far enough and many deaths and terrible injuries resulted.)

Dear Keith. Please would you be good enough to list the names of those killed ? you state MANY DEATHS.In the Manchester bomb of June 1996. Yes an active Service Unit of the Provisional IRA did plant a bomb on Saturday the 15th of June 1996 with resulted in 206 people being injured. NO ONE WAS KILLED.I repeat NO ONE WAS KILLED. The bomb was reported to be 8,000 pounds. It was 3,000. The warnings were telephoned under the agreed terms of recognized coding. In fact five warnings were received all given to different sources. The first of these was relayed to the Greater Manchester Police 1 hour and 46 minutes before the bomb exploded.It is the responsilbilty of the police to evacuate people to a safe area. Most injuries were caused by flying glass.Most injured were within an area that would have been effected if the bomb had been 1,000 pounds.I wish to say that I sincerely regret the injuries caused to civilians and that this incident now belongs in our past. Which I am very glad to see.
As to Tom Murphy,He is a well known Republican. As to your question is he a commander, answer no. There is no command structure within the PIRA as they have all been stood down.

Dear Keith My reaction to his remark as to what he did to the Irish, was anger, and I made that remark in return. Yes I was wrong to joke. Did you correct him for his statement, which sparked my reaction ? Keith I have axe to grind with you at all, and also enjoy the debating. But you have to admit there are many remarks posted on this site with deliberate intent to offend, if I fall into that box, I will put my hands up. I am very thick skinned and well hardened to the like.I am not here to defend the loss of life, and I feel strongly for what that young lady has went through.All lives lost was a regret, I have heard and saw enough pain to do me a lifetime, none of us hold the monoploy on suffering, and weelittledrummer is right, bombs destroy lives. We could play like tennis on the events since 1969 but I would prefer not to.From this side of the water I see people just getting on with their lives and it's great to see it. Yes just like your step daughter every so often someone or something picks at a scar and your right back in the mental reality of it.I can't help what I am, I don't feel within myself I am wrong to hold Republicans views, I don't come here to start arguements,If someone states something that I feel is incorrect I try to explain the facts as they are known to me. Sadly most of the posts are not questions, they are posted as either fact or attack.You will wait along time before I come in there purely to have a go at someone for nothing, most of my posts are reactive.We are on the other side of it all now, I have no doubt whatsoever of that.I hold no support for any breakaway groups and back the peace process to the hilt.

I imagine few took comfort from the statement the PIRA gave after the ceasefire that they regretted and apologized for all loss of life. It was all they could offer.Like Germany after World War Two the British people in time realised the taking of life was by a leadership and an army, not the man in the street.

The point is?

Silly snippets like that only invite the reaction they deserve. Look at the Sutton Index of deaths in Northern Ireland.

Civilians killed by British Security - 189
Civilans killed by Republican paramiltaries - 710
Civilans killed by Loyalist paramiltaries - 846

So for every 14 unarmed civilians gunned down by soldiers 140 unarmed civilians were killed by paramiltaries? For every 34 innocents blown to bits by soldiers 340 innocents were murdered by your own people? It's not as if you could not tell the difference between soldiers and cilvilans. Soldiers are the ones in uniforms walking round with big guns in case you didn't notice.

Sorry to be sarcastic but such hypocritical drivel deserves no better. If you want to join in the debate please do so with at least an attempt at common sense and a passing nod at reason. Read Divis's posts and understand that clever argument is what gets the Irish their well deserved reputation for intelectualism. Stupid hot headed rants do nothing to dispel the myth of the drunken brawler.
