Black and Tan Fantasy

At the time of writing, it appears likely that the IRA was responsible for last week's £22 million bank raid - the biggest heist in British history.

Outside certain districts of Boston, it should come as no surprise that the Provos had their fingers in this pie. In the face of a (supposed) peaceful political settlement, the paramilitary terror wings of both sides of the conflict in Ulster have retrained and are now putting their skills to use in the less glamorous world of organised crime (though let's face it, they were doing that anyway). As Kevin Myers points out in today's Sunday Telegraph, however, we can't say that. Let not light shine upon magic!
