Real IRA says it will target UK bankers | UK news | The Guardian

The alleged socialists have noticed the banking crisis at last and are planning a bit of direct action to deal with the culprits who have wrecked the country. Thus they'll be going after bankers in London!

The British Baader-Meinhof Brigade - what a sick joke!
The Republicans have finally found something that there might be popular support for. Why are they excusing Southern bankers from this? I couldn't see too many people weeping for 'Fingers' etc.

Because they don't have the courage of their new-found ultra-leftist convictions. So they've come up with this homicidal hotch-potch instead.

BTW is your post inciting violence?

I hasten to add that I don't support such actions at and have little or no sympathy for Irish Republicanism, as my posting history on the subject would show. I was merely commenting in the fact that while Republicans normally lack popular support, this could be an issue where there might be some popular support.

I am against the use of violence against persons except in the case of defense in the face of an immediate and proximate threat.

It is pretty sick - but could be an effective way of operating without getting arrested so easily.
You only have to say that you are targetting a particular minority for it to adversely affect that minority.
The Mafia have been able to strike fear into people just by intimidating them.
It's a rotten thing to do, but these days you could even do it by E-Mail.

The Real IRA insisted, however, that support for them was building and they had turned away hundreds of young disaffected nationalists because they didn't have the capacity to absorb so many members.
Talk about believing your own hype.

They haven't been enjoying slow and steady growth, it seems.

What a shower of muppets. Interesting take on who ruined their country. Appears that they think they are British now? Bring back internment for these clowns I say.

God these guy's are stupid. They claim to intend to target bankers for pr purposes but want to only target british bankers as in their bigoted estimation british bankers are more deserving of being killed. When are these idiots gonna realise their ideology is all but dead and they never will have popular support or backing of any kind. Hopefully they're just a bunch of old guy's and middle aged nutters who are living in the past. It will be ridicolously tragic if young people decide to devote themselves to such an outdated political agenda.

Doubt it. Most people have zero sympathy for the bankers, and wouldn't shed a tear if some of the top brass fell down a well and couldn't get out, but the vast majority would not be comfortable with a bunch of predominantly northern-based thugs with no mandate or support murdering Irish citizens in the name of 'de repubbilik'.

It's like they've really tried to change but have just ended up making themselves look even more stupid and violent.

The IRA say that they will take the fight to the belly of the Beast.

Vowing to alternate between "military, political and economic targets", the republican terror group has said that bankers are "criminals" and their role in funding Britain's colonial and capitalist system "has not gone unnoticed".

Responding to questions from The Guardian, a spokesman for the Real IRA said: "We have a track record of attacking high-profile economic targets and financial institutions.

"The bankers grease the politicians' palms, the politicians bail out the bankers with public funds, the bankers pay themselves fat bonuses and loan the money back to the public with interest.

"It's essentially a crime spree that benefits a social elite at the expense of many millions of victims."

What is it that Irish Bankers have that British ones do not have then?

They should be reported to the Equality Authority for blatant Discrimination!:-(
