I see ex-sf minister was treasurer of a ira grou that got 1.3m of British taxpayers money and then failed to file accounts.



Terrorist past of members of group awarded £1.3m - Belfast Newsletter
ffs I thought you of all people would have known how it works.

IRA murder cold bloodedly countless innocent civilians.......... These things happen in war.
British Army shoots IRA Man ............. This is a disgrace, call an Enquiry arrest and imprison them.
IRA get millions off taxpayer......... these things happens when conflict ends and combatants have to be integrated in society.
UDA get money from taxpayer.......... This is a disgrace, call an Enquiry arrest and imprison them.

Just thought I would highlight it, although if it was up to me none of these groups would get any money but as they say its the cost of peace (or not attacking the other side).

Money ended it. The Government just worked out that it was cheaper to buy them off than to risk another Canary Wharf. That's what ended the IRA threat to the state. Bugs Bunny, a few titles and an illusion of power to save face.
The loyalist problem was they weren't a threat to the state so the state had no reason to pay them off. But when they saw the money the provies were getting they had to create a threat to peace to get paid. It is working. All those shows of strength in Larne and Carrick, Twaddell Ave etc are just ways of showing they have to be bought off as well.
