Pay attention Liam Clarke January 18, 2008Posted by franklittle in media, Media and Journalism, Republicanism, Republicans, The North.
Liam Clarke of the Sunday Times has an interesting piece here on the dynamic between the DUP and Sinn Féin but a bit of a howler at the end. He puts a great deal of weight on the fact that the IRA didn’t issue a New Year’s Message this year, suggesting his security sources think it is a signal the Army Council is thining of disbanding.
Yet the IRA did issue a statement, carried in An Phoblacht, several days before Clarke’s piece appeared.
I suspect the Sunday Times needs to renew his subscription.
