Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week March 10, 2013Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
Since its relaunch, the now atrocious Sindo website doesn’t upload the bulk of its material until the afternoon. And today, it’s Man United versus Chelsea on the TV [cue outrage from the LoI contingent no doubt ], and there’s no chance I going through the Sindo website this afternoon. So there’s an element of do it yourself this week. Having said that, it looks like we have a clear winner available in the early batch of releases. Step forward Jim Cusack.
Not far from Beechmount is the family home of the man who is believed to be the head of the re-formed Provisional IRA. He has a considerable republican pedigree.
In recent years this man and former Provisional IRA associates has been planning the relaunch of a new campaign. His re-entry into terrorism has stimulated other former Provisionals to rejoin and become active again. The group announced their formation last summer in statements to newspapers in Belfast. Little attention was paid to the statements at the time as there had been several such announcements before as the dissident elements formed and re-formed themselves into factions. There were two groups claiming the title “Continuity” IRA, at least another two claiming the “Real” IRA title and another calling itself Oglaigh na hEireann. The newly emerging group simply calls itself the IRA. It is taking over the disparate “dissident” elements.
So the Provisional IRA is reformed and back in action. Except, reading a few lines down, it’s not really. Nothing like clear reporting.
