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.

I know I am going to regret getting involved in this but.....


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

I've posted this before, but it seems important to post again. 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! :)

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.
