March Irish Political Review

The latest editorial from the Irish Political Review is online at the Athol Books website. At first the article didn’t strike me as particularly related to the title, but after thinking about it, I’m not so sure.

The SDLP Election Campaign

February was a month in which nothing much happened. The only money from the Northern Bank robbery that has been recovered was found at a police social club in Belfast and was taken as proof positive that the police did not steal it. The police forces of two states, giving the matter top priority, have not succeeded in making any connection between the IRA and the robbery, and that is taken as proof positive that the IRA did it. The entire absence of evidence is the strongest evidence, because if the IRA had not done it, it would have had no reason to remove all traces of itself from the scene of the action.
