Humpty Dumpty told Alice that if he ever fell off the wall, the King would send all his horses and all his men to pick him up.
Our own policing Humpty Dumpty can look forward to the Queen sending him a knighthood, providing he stays on the fence.
Last night Sharon O’Neill asked him a very obvious question; “Who is the leader of PIRA?”
His answer was that membership is a criminal offence and he wasn’t going to do or say anything or speculate on anything which could undermine any future court proceedings.
So there you are Dear Reader, the Chief Con is on the case “following the evidence”. Can’t you see him with his magnifying glass and cape , accompanied by Joe 90, examining the footpaths of West Belfast?
Of course he could have arrested a sizeable proportion of PIRA high command the other week when he met them in a hall in West Belfast, a hall being guarded by a PIRA run security company. He shook hands with a man who has murdered many innocent people. The butchers boy from the Bogside.
To imagine for a moment. George causes a file to be sent to Barra-Boy. It contains evidence against senior members of PIRA, it being a proscribed organisation. Barra, because of his past would have to pass it to the team which bought you such block busters as Cahill and McCartney.
This is just a little fantasy for two reasons.
- A number of the northern command and the Belfast brigade PIRA are state agents. Therefore George and MI5 know exactly what is going on in PIRA and keep the Secretary of State informed.
- I have been asking since 1990 why no senior member of PIRA was questioned about the murders of my parents.
No senior member of PIRA has ever been convicted.
As Northern Ireland descends into chaos and farce with this , Nama, Red Sky and other imbecilic acts, will the unionist parties have the courage to act?
Don’t hold your breath. As they often say in Ahoghill; “Deus ex machina”.
