The noose is tightening

The noose is tightening for Sinn Féin.

Building contractor Dominic McEvoy, of Kilcoo, Co Down, was tonight
charged with the £26.5m Northern Bank robbery in Belfast.

Earlier today, top republican Brian Arthurs, 40, was arrested in Dungannon while a 43-year-old suspect was detained in Coalisland.

Brian Arthurs is understood to be a member of Sinn Féin.

The Sinn Féin MP for Fermanagh and South Tyrone (and apologist for criminal behaviour), Michelle Gidernew, claimed support for the reformed police service would evaporate because of the arrests.

"These are not the actions of an accountable and acceptable policing service," she said. (What? Bringing people to justice?)

"The operation in Tyrone will further undermine the confidence of the nationalist community in the ability of the PSNI to deliver impartial, accountable policing."

Er, not really. The operation in Tyrone will reveal to the people of Ireland that the two governments and the rest of the political parties were right to believe that the Northern Bank raid was carried out by Sinn Féin/IRA.

Things are set to get quite interesting indeed!
